Did you know ASRS (Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems) have been in use for more than 50 years? Yet we think of them as a modern-day miracle!
Of course, the technology and capabilities of ASRS have improved phenomenally since it was first used, predominantly for heavy pallets, and with the most modern version of ASRS, namely ‘Modular Cube Based Storage Systems’ there is no denying that they are indeed ‘state of the art’.
Offering the ability to increase storage capacity by up to four times, with improved efficiency and super-fast order fulfilment, more and more e-commerce providers are creating ASRS warehouses.
ASRS systems like Autostore, Ocado Technology and Swisslog, deliver speed, accuracy, safety, efficient tracking, and lowered costs, with the capacity to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in ‘Dark Warehouse’ scenarios, potentially absent of human input.
Face Consultants can compliance check your floor to ensure it is suitable for running an ASRS system. If it doesn’t comply, we can upgrade your floor to the correct specifications.
ASRS systems can be tailored to most environments, but one essential requirement is that they operate on a flat floor.
Face Consultants can look at the manufacturers requirements and ensure that the floor is checked to see if it is indeed fit for purpose.
If it isn’t, we can work with specialist remedial contractors to ensure that the floor is upgraded and that the system can operate at its optimum performance.
