ISD - Integrated Systems Design Announces New UltraStore ASRS Provides Cost Effective Pallet, Case and Item Picking For Operations

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

The new UltraStore™ Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) provides up to 85% space savings for items, cases, pallets and custom materials with unique sizes and dimensions. The ASRS provides organizations with a fast ROI, focus on reliability and a quick delivery and implementation time.

The UltraStore ASRS provides cost effective operation by using surface mounted track and guide system. This design not only reduces installation time, but allows the system to be easily relocated in the future.

The Perfect-Uptime™ option allows the UltraStore system to be productive even during down times including scheduled maintenance periods. This manual system helps assure that the stored items are accessible at all times for maximum reliability.

Easy to use controls and HMI (human machine interface) allows the system to be up and running quickly and easily with minimum training and virtually no operator interaction. The crane immediately moves down the lane while positioning the shuttle to the proper height. The crane stops at the correct position and the shuttle inserts or extracts the stored material and brings it back down to the operator area. Here the item can be moved onto awaiting fork lifts, conveyor system or work station for ergonomic operations.

The UltraStore ASRS is ideal for organizations new or existing processes including: buffer storage, order picking, work in process (WIP), tooling, machine component storage, frozen goods and more. The UltraStore automated storage and retrieval system is designed and manufactured utilizing as much non-proprietary "off the shelf components" and technology as feasible to make the system not only cost effective, but easier and less expensive to maintain over the years.

The UltraStore ASRS is available in a wide range of standard and special sizes and capacities. Standard models can have load positions ranging from 10 to 60 inches in width, 18 to 96 inches in depth and up to 2000 pounds and a wide variety of load handlers to meet most requirements.

"Most  organizations who have investigated and priced other ASRS systems in the past and are looking for the right Return on Investment (ROI) for the acquisition to make sense, have been our best source of customers to date," says Tony Morgott, VP of Sales.
