Speeding up your item storage and retrieval – also one of AFT’s specialties.
Automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) and warehouse management systems (WMS) can only work efficiently if incoming and ordered goods are recognized, prepared and removed in a swift and efficient way. To recognize and index incoming items, sort and group into sets, pack and stow into storable units or retrieve packs, remove, de-register and re-pack items are complex tasks and a bottleneck for automated storage.
In 2005 we introduced “Pic Store”, a new system for automated order picking and allocation of goods based on a new, elevated storage and retrieval system. Pic Store is designed to alleviate the bottleneck by considerably speeding up order processing by using, for example, picking robots to flexibly prepare and pack ordered items on pallets in suitable layers, ready for delivery or storage.
