Customized Automatic Storage And Retrieval System ( ASRS ) Manufactured In China
Automatic Storage and Retrieval System, (ASRS for short), is an advanced storage solution by integrating modern computer technologies, traditional pallet racks, as well as various material handling methods together to conform to the increasing demands of fast logistic market development.
As a competitive storage solution, ASRS realizes automatic product placing, storing, and picking facilitated by computers and machines, such as stack cranes, vertical lift machines, and system control computers. Adapting to different load sizes and weights, ASRS rationalizes vertical and horizontal space utilization, accurate and efficient operation, labor-saving, and automated management.

Structure and components
An Automatic Storage and Retrieval System commonly consists of the following parts:
♦ Storage structure
As the basis of ASRS, the warehouse is usually specially designed for usage. Considering the maximum loads of the whole system, infrastructures inside the building should be properly engineered for long durability and safety such as foundations and columns.
The racks inside the building should be chosen conforming to ASRA application requirements. Very narrow aisle pallet rack and drive-in pallet rack, as well as some other accessories, are regularly used in this system.
♦ Automatic material handling equipment
In an ASRS, more automated machines are involved in product storage and retrieval. For example, for bulky or palletized products, largely automated stacker cranes are commonly used fixing on certain aisles. For small items stored in boxes and cartons, shuttle cars or mini-sized stacker cranes are optional for fast and accurate inventory placing and picking, especially in deep storage lanes.
♦ Conveying system
Acting as connecting parts between ASRS and perimeter working stations, some conveyance equipment may necessary for facilitating the whole handling processes at the front or back of the system. A conveying system may include rolling conveyors and chain conveyors combined with vertical lifts, rotating devices, and other complementary components and accessories.
♦ Warehouse Controlling system
Warehouse Controlling System (WCS for short ), a software application, typically includes a programmable logic controller and a decentralized control configuration. Programmed to manage the warehouse as requested with optimized productivity, WCS controls the stacker cranes and radio shuttles movement serving preset purposes such as material handling processes and inventory control details.
