Automatic Storage Systems An automated storage and retrieval system, commonly known as AS/RS, is a computer-controlled system that efficiently stores and replenishes loads from specific locations.
AS/RS technology is widely used in warehouses, manufacturing units and distribution centers for material handling and inventory management purposes. These systems are widely used in cold storage, automotive, pharmaceutical manufacturing, food and beverage and e-commerce applications.
What are the Types of Automated Storage?
With Automatic Storage Systems, a modern and technological understanding has been adopted in product storage methods. With this understanding, while the costs and workload are reduced, the efficiency of the work flow has been increased. Products such as lift, multi rack and carousel are the most basic assistants of this technology. In addition, automatic storage systems have been diversified to meet every need.

Advantages of Automatic Storage and Retrieval Systems
Automatic storage and retrieval systems have several advantages for warehouses, distribution centers and manufacturing facilities.
1. Reducing variable costs
Automatic storage and retrieval systems reduce the variable costs of operations by reducing the need for manual labor for tasks such as picking, warehousing, assembly and inventory replenishment. These costs are variable and expenses such as overtime, benefits, and payroll taxes are added to the total manual labor cost.
2. Automation guide, recurring storage and retrieval costs
As mentioned, AS/RS solutions automate manual, repetitive storage and retrieval tasks, reducing the need for manual labor. Automating these tasks improves accuracy and efficiency while also freeing employees to focus on higher-value activities.
3. Better security
Human workers who perform manual, repetitive tasks for several hours can experience fatigue and muscle tension, increasing the risk of error and injury. Likewise, mistakes made when operating heavy equipment in a production or warehouse environment can be dangerous and result in injury or death.
AS/RS solutions automate these tasks, eliminating employee fatigue and physical strain while eliminating errors that can hinder productivity and safety. AS/RS equipment can also move materials and loads that are too heavy for humans to carry, reducing workplace injuries from lifting.
4. Better space utilization
Proper grouping of shelves and items is vital in warehouses and distribution centers. Stocks of raw materials, work-in-progress and finished products need to be replenished regularly to ensure processes continue uninterrupted. Warehouses and distribution centers depend on effective use of space to maintain a healthy bottom line.
Most AS/RS solutions require narrower aisles than facilities that require adequate aisle space for human workers and equipment such as forklifts to pass, often with two-way traffic. Narrower aisles open up more storage space for goods and materials, allowing warehouses and DCs to store more products without expanding the facility. Facilities can make better use of vertical space, as automated storage and retrieval systems have easier access to higher storage locations than human workers.
