Automated Storage & Retrieval Systems (ASRS)

An Automated Storage and Retrieval System (AS/RS) refers to a variety of computer-controlled methods for automatically depositing and retrieving loads to and from defined storage locations within manufacturing, warehousing and distribution environments. They are compact machines that utilise the unused high level space of a plant or warehouse for the storage of products. Items can be placed in specific locations either on pallets, trays or hanging from bars and can be accessed very easily. They are used to automatically to retrieve and put away products and can operate within a very narrow high space.
