Automatic Storage and Retrieval System
Stand-alone floor mounted system to train the concept & aspects of Material Storage & Handling. The Automatic Storage & Retrieval System is a key equipment in warehouse and material handling process in factory automation. The ASRS is a programmable system that is controlled via PLC.
A signal can be sent to the system, when material is required. Material is stored in pallets and the signal to the system, initiates the retrieval of a specific pallet. Further RFID integration allows customized processes to be defined for each pallet. In Smart Factory Automation, this allows different types of machining operations, inspection and assembly to take place on each pallet.
The ASRS can be integrated with an AGV, transfer conveyors and vision inspection to create a warehouse automation training system. The ASRS system is an Industry 4.0 IoT ready system and can be integrated with a cloud application.
