Enhanced AS/RS

April 1, 2010



High-density automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) linked directly to robotic picking and palletizing are controlled and optimized with warehouse management software. Customized based on Satellite technology, which provides the ability to create a dense storage system utilizing 1- to 12-deep pallet storage lanes, the AS/RS meet the needs of both high moving and slow moving inventory. High-speed robotic palletizers are integrated into the warehouse design for high-speed layer picking and palletizing, mixed-layer picking and palletizing, layer forming, depalletizing and more.
