Automated Storage & Retrieval Systems (ASRS)

Exmac Automation has experience in supplying automated storage and retrieval crane systems for many different industry sectors.

CHIV_0358We have experience of most types of ASRS crane systems from high capacity mini-load cranes and racking, through to high-bay warehouse crane projects.

This is complemented by the ability to provide bespoke products and equipment, and full turnkey warehouse projects including associated conveyors, AGVs/RGVs, racking, stretch wrappers, palletisers, etc. and, where required, a Warehouse Management System.

The standard range of ASRS cranes includes fixed aisle and aisle transfer crane shuttles. We can also tailor cranes to suit specific applications by fitting, for example, double-reach forks to optimise storage space.

Exmac Automation ASRS systems can handle products ranging from standard pallets to painted car bodies and aircraft components to stillages and cages.

Our standard range includes cranes up to 30m high with payloads up to 3,000 kg. Besides manufacturing crane systems to clients’ specifications, we are able to carry out pre-installation trials on many key areas of crane systems in our manufacturing facility.

Importantly, to meet clients’ supply schedules, our in-house expertise also includes the supply of standard software packages to manage inventory and facilitate product identification on input and retrieval. Systems are compatible with PC or microcomputer hardware platforms.

Recent installations have exploited the benefits of advanced laser technology to control the finite positioning and picking of loads in the X, Y and Z axes.
