5 min reading time
Storage is a fundamental requirement of every distribution centre as it adds value by providing a critical buffer between your processes and your customer.
Armstrong's Automated Storage & Retrieval System is designed to minimize and mobilize the stock. It secures the inventory, eliminates damage, and increases productivity and accuracy. All the while saving footprint, time and money. It also enables goods to person and eliminates the need for physical movement, which improves the safety of materials at your workplace. The software integrated into our system allows real-time data that makes physical inventory inspections redundant by saving time and costs.
Need Of Automated Storage & Retrieval System In Warehouses
To positively transform your business, it's mandatory to use systematic engineering surveys and slotting analysis to design storage solutions that save your time and space. Using the technology that helps you achieve the lowest cost storage density and offers the highest throughput are the automated storage and retrieval systems by Armstrong.
When the volume of inventory is large, Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems work best. Real-time data makes physical inventory inspections redundant, saving time and costs. Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (AS/RS) increase throughput and efficiency, lowering building costs and optimizing ‘air rights'.
For your unit-loads and high bay facilities, stacker-cranes suit you best. Equipped with guide rails and control systems, stacker-crane systems carry out operations of distance travelling, lifting, picking & placing. Made up of telescopic forklifts, it makes your operations swift and error-free which can be easily managed by your operators. The semi-automated high-density storage system allows the maximum use of space in your facility. The radio shuttle is loaded into storage loads that take commands from the remote control to load or unload pallets into a lane. This cost-effective way of automation can store the maximum number of pallets per operator as the travel distance is reduced.
Thus, Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (AS/RS) is a need more than a necessity and paves the way to efficiency, accuracy and hence productivity in the warehouses & fulfillment centres.
Benefits Of Automated Storage & Retrieval System
Storage & Retrieval Machines rapidly move loads of up to 1,800 kilograms in and out of a secured rack structure that can be over 42 metres tall. With single, double, and multi-deep satellite storage options, the Unit-Load AS/RS systems offer outstanding space utilization in ambient, chilled, or freezer environments.
Rapid Access With Minimum Labor
With different options for moving single or multiple loads in a single cycle, ASRS systems can achieve throughput rates as high as 60 loads in/out per hour. Intelligent software and controls allow these systems to operate unattended around the clock.
Efficient, Accurate, Reliable
The Unit-Load AS/RS systems operate in an efficient “lights-out” environment. They are designed for mission-critical applications to ensure easy maintenance and maximum uptime. The latest control technology ensures high efficiency and accuracy.
Modular And Flexible
It offers single-mast and double-mast models of the SRM that can be equipped with up to six load-handling devices. The broad portfolio of load-handling devices handles 50-kilogram trays, totes, or cartons of varying sizes from 150 to 650 millimeters wide.

Armstrong - India's Leading & Widely trusted Intralogistics Partner To Achieve Operational
Armstrong provides a variety of storage solutions designed to reduce and mobilize your inventory. We can assist you in organizing and controlling inventory on pallets, cartons (totes), and hangers. Our storage solutions provide significant advantages to your business, regardless of the size of your facility, and the type of inventory. If you want to maximize space utilization, reduce operational costs, and improve product and labor safety while simultaneously maximizing throughput and having inventory control, an ASRS solution is the way forward. The question you should be asking yourself isn't whether you can afford an ASRS - ask yourself whether you can afford not having one!
1. What are ASRS Systems?
ASRS systems comprises of a number of computer-controlled systems for placing and retrieving loads from predetermined storage sites.
2. Types of ASRS systems?
ASRS systems are of two types - Unit Load & Mini Load.
3. Need of ASRS systems in a warehouse facility?
ASRS reduces costs by reducing the number of redundant parts and items in a warehouse. It decreases human involvement in operations, thus lowering overall operational costs and at the same time improving safety & ergonomics.
4. Is ASRS suitable for your operations?
A number of factors determine the need of the ASRS technology in your warehouse. Your capacity to deploy a system could be influenced by the factors such as business cycle, operational goals, level of growth, and available investment resources. We recommend you to speak to our expert consultants to find a suitable solution that fits your requirements.
