General Introduction:
The 'JAY' AS/RS pallet load technology are designed to handle unitized loads into & out of very high density storage. While sometimes used to replenish picking locations with palletized commodities, the most common application of this equipment is for the buffering of supply chain deliveries, storing and controlling the inventory until it has released from QC. An AS/RS consists of a variety of computer-controlled systems for automatically placing and retrieval loads from defined storage locations. 'JAY' AS/RS typically finds applications where; there is a very volume of loads being moved into & out of storage; storage density is important because of space constraints; no value adding content is present in this process. AS/RS can be used with standard loads as well as nonstandard loads. A fixed-aisle stacker crane is one of two-main designs: single mast or double mast. They are supported on a track by ceiling & floor guided. Another AS/RS technology is known as Radio Shuttle technology, where the horizontal movement is made by independent shuttles each operating on one level of the rack, while a stacker crane lifts & shifts the pallet shuttle & pallets to a P&D station.
Types of Automated Storage & Retrieval Systems for Pallets:
Automated Warehouses for Pallets (AS/RS) with High Bay Pallet Storage Systems
Single Deep Pallet Storage
Double Deep Pallet Storage
Automated Warehouses for Pallets (AS/RS) with Radio Shuttle Racking Systems
Multi-deep (Deep Lane) Pallet Storage
Basic System Components of AS/RS for Pallets:
AS/RS can be designed to suit specific customer requirements. Depending upon individual requirments system components can vary is type & use. Below are a basic list of components which sometimes form a part of the AS/RS:
'JAY' Pallet Rackng: High Bay Pallet racking systems/Pallet shuttle systems(radio Shuttles)
Top & Bottom Rails for Stacker Crane movement.
'JAY' Stacker Cranes (Storage & Retreival machines-SRM) With Load Handling Devices: Telescopic Forks/Radio Shuttles
Aisle Equipments like; Buffers, Power supply rails, Wireless communication system, Aisle changeover switch, safety switches etc.
