Rover AS/RS (Automated Storage And Retrieval System)

ROVER AS/RS IS A SHUTTLE-BASED PALLET STORAGE AND HANDLING SYSTEM THAT MOVES BI-DIRECTIONALLY WITH NO FIXED AISLE AUTOMATION

About Rover AS/RS:

Modular with Scalable Growth

Expand throughput by adding Rovers and VRC’s.  Add storage with additional racking.

Unmatched Flexibility

Able to match any SKU Profile.  Integration flexibility.  Design automation around customer needs & facilities.  LIFO/FIFO.  Placed Infeed and Outfeed anywhere on the racking grid.  Match any building layout.  Flexible for future changes in customer’s throughput requirements.  Can change storage configurations/move or add racking.

Minimal Maintenance

The Rover AS/RS integrated system requires minimal maintenance during high throughput operations.  Standard VRC and pallet conveyors are the only other material handling equipment in the system.

Price Competitive

Cost per pallet is typically lower than traditional AS/RS technologies.  Minimal pallet conveyor supporting the system can lead to significant cost savings.  Rover acts as a sorter versus a conveyor system.  Simple infeed and non- powered outfeed conveyors also add savings.

High Density | High Throughput

Rover AS/RS system’s typically create 15-20% more storage capacity than a selective rack warehouse. | A Rover system’s throughput is only limited by the number of Rovers and VRCs (lifts) in the system.

No Single Point Of Failure

If a Rover malfunctions, simply move it out of the way and another Rover will complete the job.  If a VRC faults, the Rovers will use a different lift in the system.

Unlike a conventional cart or crane based AS/RS, Rover is able to provide high throughput and can be easily reconfigured to accommodate ever changing storage needs, SKU profiles and production demands.

Bi-Directional Movement

Rover AS/RS moves bi-directionally on each racking level to access any pallet storage location or position

Warehouse Management System (WMS)

Warehouse Management System (WMS) software manages inventory and order processing

Vertical Lifts

VRC’s (vertical lifts) move Rover from level to level

Advance Software

Advance software manages the system’s fleet of Rovers to efficiently transport pallets in and out of the system automatically
