Fully automated parts storage & retrieval system (ASRS) provides on-demand control.
This agricultural implement manufacturer needed to upgrade its 20-plus-year-old manual parts storage and retrieval system. The upgrade fully automated the system to allow plant to store, sort and retrieve equipment parts on demand via a plant management control system. Installation occurred around the clock to minimize the impact on the plant production schedule. The upgrade allowed the plant to eliminate the manpower required for manual parts storage and retrieval.
