CIMCORP AS/RS —
Automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS)
Cimcorp 3D Shuttle is an automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) suitable for a wide variety of applications in which a large number of SKUs are handled in plastic crates, totes, boxes, baskets, trays or bins.
It is ideal for serving goods-to-person order picking stations in retail, food service and e-commerce; distribution centers handling parts and components, especially applications in which there are large product ranges and a requirements for high service levels; and car assembly lines supported by third party logistics providers (3PLs) that need to hold stocks of components and ensure delivery to the assembly line to maintain Just-in-Time (JIT) delivery schedules.
Cimcorp 3D Shuttle can manage a distribution center’s entire operations or, alternatively, the system may operate as an ‘island’ of automation within a manual facility. The solution uses proven gantry robot technology, combined with an innovative shuttle device integrated into the gantry, to store and retrieve totes required for order fulfillment.
