Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems

Automated storage and retrieval systems are becoming commonplace globally, and across many industries, as companies seek ways to be more efficient and respond to changes in market needs.The primary reasons to replace traditional shelving or racking storage with Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS) are:

  • Improved storage density, capacity, and space savings
  • Increased efficiency and reduced labour
  • Increased throughput
  • Improved picking accuracy
  • Improved inventory control 
  • Improved ergonomics

The Automation Advantage

Send us an inquiry:

Efficient Space Retrieval: 

The carousel system retrieves items with high precision and efficiency, minimizing the need for manual searching and reducing the risk of wasted space due to poor organization.

Reduced Aisles: 

Unlike traditional racking and shelving systems that require wide aisles for manual access, automated carousels eliminate the need for extensive aisles. They only require a single access point, making more room available for storage and reducing wasted space.

Compact Footprint: 

Store a large number of items within a relatively small area. This is particularly valuable for facilities with limited available floor space, as it allows you to make the most of the available real estate.

Automation Offerings

Carousel Storage Systems - and - Vertical Lift Modules

Vertical Lift Modules (VLM’s) and Carousel Storage Systems are excellent storage options for small to large items. They provide a significant improvement in storage density as compared to traditional shelving and racking systems by utilizing the full ceiling height within a building, eliminating walkways or aisles, and optimizing storage on each shelf within the system. Clients often recapture up to 60% of the space required for a traditional shelving system.

When choosing between a Vertical Lift or Carousel, available ceiling height is the first consideration and typically Lifts are more cost effective over 16 feet and Carousels are more cost effective under 16 feet. Some applications, and the items being stored, may be better suited to either a lift or a carousel regardless and the available ceiling height may not be a concern.

Use your warehouse space more efficiently and work ergonomically with the Hanel Rotomat® Storage System

This automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) consists of rotating vertical carousels with shelves or trays for storing items. 

How it works: These carousels rotate horizontally to bring the desired item to the access point, improving storage efficiency and retrieval speed.

The storage carousel system has a compact design and is fully customizable with several types of multi-function storage carriers and an array of colour options.
