AS/RS system

Multishuttle is a flexible, automated storage and retrieval (AS/RS) staging system for applications that require dynamic, fast, product sequencing to support order assembly, goods to the person picking and pick replenishment. Key attributes include the ability to accommodate load-sequencing requirements and adaptability to existing building layouts. The system consists of multiple levels of an AS/RS rack structure, carrier vehicles, buffer conveyors and software. Each level of the rack structure includes input/output conveyor and a carrier vehicle that travels horizontally to access loads stored in the rack structure—typically totes or trays. An extraction device on each carrier vehicle accesses the loads in the rack.
