What is Rover AS/RS?

Rover is a shuttle-based Automated Storage and Retrieval System (AS/RS), with no fixed aisle automation.

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

A Single Rover Can Travel Throughput The Racking Structure To Any Pallet Storage Location Or Infeed/Outfeed Station.

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.

High Density

Rover system’s typically create 15 – 20% more storage capacity than a selective rack warehouse.

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.  Not feed multiple aisles.  Rover acts as a sorter versus a conveyor system.  Simple Infeed and non-powered Outfeed conveyors.

Minimal Maintenance

Rover’s integrated system requires minimal maintenance during high throughput operations.  Standard VRC and pallet conveyor only other material handling equipment in the system.

Cold Storage Application

Rover is powered by Li-ion batteries and works seamlessly in a cold storage environment.  Typically, cold storage designs have all the stationary, mechanical and electrical components within 20 feet of the shipping dock with only static racking extending deep into the freezer warehouse.

High Throughput

Rover’s integrated system requires minimal maintenance during high throughput operations.  Standard VRC and pallet conveyor only other material handling equipment 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.
