The automated systems of storage and recovery (AS/RS) allow a high density of product storage through the maximization of the space height in reduced areas “foot print”
These types of systems are available for boxes, pallets, long loads or materials of random shapes with uniform base.
When the handling of boxes or plastic totes is required, the Miniload or Multishuttle are usually used, they can handle one or multiple boxes simultaneously according to the design requirements. When the handling of pallets or long loads is required, then Uniload is used.
In both systems is essential to make an analysis of the SKUs that are handled in order to determine the selectivity that your operation requires compared with storage density, as well as for determining multiple variants of these systems such as: type of shuttle or extractor to be used, number of cranes required, additional conveyor systems, among many others.
All these solutions are supported with our software WCS / WES, which will allow you to control the following characteristics of your inventory according to the parameters that are implemented such as: FIFO / LIFO, batch tracking, inventory control, among many others functions.
