AS-RS Storage Towers | Vertical Storage Machines That Save Space

August 12, 2013
Could your manufacturing or distribution facility use more floor space? Floor space is expensive and inefficient use of floor space is even more expensive. AS-RS storage towers are vertical machines that recapture wasted floor space to make your facility space efficient. These vertical storage machines maximize storage space by converting 1) unused overhead air space, 2) storage access aisle space, and 3) reach space used pull parts from bins. While making the most of your facility's overhead air space is obvious, people underestimate the space savings required to access parts from shelves which adds up to be a considerable space savings. In most of our site surveys, we find that traditional storage shelving only uses 50% of the available cubic storage space. Vertical storage towers are different because they store large storage trays vertically and then deliver requested parts to a waist-high work counter for picking. Since the storage trays are delivered to a work counter, the trays when stored only need 1/2" of space between levels. Other benefits of AS-RS vertical storage towers besides space savings are: • Increase in accuracy and productivity using pick to light technology • Automated inventory management • Flexibility to storage a wide range of parts sizes and weights • Security (the vertical storage towers are fully enclosed with a locking door) For more information on how AS-RS storage towers can maximize your vertical storage space, call us at 1-800-803-1083 or visit us at http://http://www.southwestsolutions.com/vertical_towers/.
