AUTOMATED STORAGE

Automated Storage systems allow huge savings both in space and labor. The wares are shuttled and handled by automated computer-controlled stacker cranes that, thanks to sophisticated software, move at high speeds inside narrow spaces and considerable heights. Usually interfaced to inventory control software, these systems allow to get real time information about transactions, warehousing and stocks. When designing such a system, the aim is to maximize usage of the available space. Automated Storage systems are usually recommended for slow-rotation, high-density warehousing.
