Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems

Automated picking and storage systemsAutomated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS or AS/RS), consist of a variety of computer-controlled systems for automatically placing and retrieving goods from defined storage locations. These automated storage retrieval systems are ideal for applications where high volumes of inventory move in-and-out of manufacturing or distribution operations.   AS/RS increases throughput and efficiency, saves space and eliminates the need for physical inventory inspections as real time data is kept on inventory.

Compared to conventional solutions automated storage and retrieval installations occupy considerably less floor space. The optimum ergonomic layout of the picking area also reduces information and picking times.  Travel time is reduced by more than 80%, very short access times results in a high picking performance.  The high bay racking frames allows optimum utilisation of the available warehouse height and compact storage.

Modern warehouse management systems need to provide reliability and flexibility for future needs and they are required to process increasingly complex tasks.  2H Storage Solutions high-density AS/RS systems offer the following benefits
