Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS)
An Automated Storage and Retrieval System (AS/RS) is a combination of equipment and controls that handle, store and retrieve materials as needed with precision, accuracy and speed under a defined degree of automation. Systems vary from relatively simple, manually controlled order-picking machines operating in small storage structures to extremely large, computer-controlled storage/retrieval systems totally integrated into a manufacturing and distribution process.
- High storage density with minimal building footprint
- Purpose built facilities ensure built for purpose features
- Low running cost associated with automation
- Fast and accurate operations in man free environment
