Automated Storage/Retrieval System (AS/RS)

An automated Storage/Retrieval System (AS/RS) is a high-density rack inventory storage system with unmanned vehicles automatically loading and unloading products to/from the racks. Automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) are typically used in applications where:
  • There is a very high volume of loads being moved into and out of storage
  • Storage density is important because of space constraints
  • No value is added in this process (no processing, only storage and transport)
  • Accuracy is critical because of potential expensive damages to the load
