ASRS solutions encompass a variety of methods to store and retrieve products or groups of product including: Unit-Load, Mini-Load, Vertical Lift Modules, Shuttles, Horizontal Carousels, Vertical Carousels, and Cube-Based Storage.
At Sage Automation, we employ the use of Large Area Gantry Robots in lieu of racks, shuttles, or VLMs so we may capitalize on existing infrastructure and take advantage of several benefits to the customer.
1.) EXISTING FACILITIES: Gantry Robots have the advantage of working with significantly lower ceiling heights so it’s easier to implement our system into existing buildings without constructing specialized structures.
2.) EFFICIENT STORAGE SPACE: Gantry robots use nearly 100% of the floor space encompassed within the robotic assembly envelope to store like product in vertical stacks.
3.) INTEGRATION: Our inventory system can automatically calculate the storage of like SKUs in stable defined stacks so that more commonly retrieved stacks are placed closer to the exits for maximum throughput while lower yield SKUs are placed closer to the outer edges.
4.) RATE & SPEED: With the ability to move in multiple axes at once, gantry robots have the capability to meet even the most demanding throughput for most product lines. In the situation a single gantry robot can’t meet the need, more gantry robot heads can be added to an existing assembly to satisfy the necessary throughput.
5.) OPERATOR INTERFACE: Our controls system user experience is some of the best in the industry showcasing multi-level permissions, abilities, and operations on the most commonly used industrial controls systems in the industry such as Allen Bradley PLCs.
