Automated ASRS system stands for Automated storage and retrieval systems, or commonly known as AS/RS Systems. It is computer controlled systems with extreme accuracy operating in very narrow aisles. Because of the narrow aisles in an automated storage system, An aisle can be reduced to nearly a narrow 2000mm aisle. This creates 40% more space for warehouse storage rather than aisles and one of two types of systems – Unit Load AS/RS and Mini Load AS/RS can be engineered depending on the size of warehouse product being stored .
AS/RS systems can be configured many different ways. Typically a smaller system will not use shuttles to pick and retrieve loads while some automated storage and retrieval systems use extractors that grasp handles on metal trays with vacuums or robotic arms.
Pallet racking operated by cranes requires special arrangements for tolerances in manufacturing and assembly. Perfect positioning and leveling are vital for such installations. The cranes are running on a floor mounted rail and stabilized at the top of the mast by a top guide rail. The pallets can be placed "single deep", "double deep" or "multi-deep".
It is a safe, fast and very convenience system with 100% accessibility. The crane can go up to more than 30m. The exact height and length can determine by capacity.
3. ASRS System Benefit
AS/RS Systems provide fast accurate load transfers at high speed automated storage and simple retrieval operations. Current warehouses can be converted to AS/RS applications with automated storage and retrieval for fast payback in ROI.
