Unit Load Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems: AS/RS for Palletized Loads
Optimize space and time in your operation
Automated storage & retrieval for unit loads
Unit load is the material handling term for any configuration of materials that allow it to be moved by material handling equipment as a single unit. Typically, this means pallet loads, but can apply to containerized loads.
AS/RS can improve every aspect of pallet handling operations
Faster, smoother and quieter: Handling pallets in a storage system can be daunting, but AS/RS allows you to control many more aspects of the operation than manual systems.
It's also much quieter than comparable manual systems - often no louder than the typical office environment.
Space savings vs. manual storage can also be significant. The footprint of the system vs. that of a comparable manual system can result in significant savings in floor space. Use of the vertical cube is also a factor.
Automatic storage and retrieval machines are an important component of a cost-effective logistics chain
Anywhere optimized warehousing with quick transport of material and short access times is required, we offer innovative SSI Schaefer storage and retrieval machines that are based on customer requirements and bring economic warehousing to perfection.
Coordinated technology is the key to ideal solutions. Storage and retrieval machines transfer goods to and from the adjacent-components of storage racks and material flow conveyor systems matched to the situation. Whether you need a short-term buffer with sequencing and high throughput, a warehouse solely used to supply and stock raw material or finished products, or a buffer between the individual steps of production, we can help you identify your need and find technologies to match it.
Storage and retrieval machines adjust to your individual requirements
- Adjustment to your storage aid by means of dedicated load acceptance devices
