Maximizing Warehouse and Operational Efficiencies with StorFast® ASRS
Move pallets in and out of storage positions quickly and automatically with Signode’s StorFast® ASRS warehouse system. This high-density solution for “lights out” warehousing provides increased throughput and flexibility with limitless configurations. Automated shuttle/cart system allows multiple orders to be processed simultaneously and flexes between high-volume input and peak shipping schedules to optimize utilization and efficiency.
Robotic Palletizing and Depalletizing
As an authorized system integrator for Fanuc® and several other robotic manufacturers, we have the relationships and experience necessary to design and integrate the ideal palletizing and/or depalletizing setup for a wide range of applications. We design, manufacture, and integrate custom robotic palletizers and depalletizers for customers around the world.
Every robotic palletizing system we supply is engineered for our customer’s desired speed, service life, payload, reach, repeatability, and affordability to support implementation success.
Autonomous Mobile Robots
Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) are designed to optimize productivity in logistics and manufacturing operations. AMRs make your employees more efficient by allowing them to focus on higher-value activities, while shortening lead time, reducing the risk of bottlenecks, and optimizing safety.
As a certified integrator of MiR (Mobile Industrial Robots) we can provide advanced collaborative robotics to automate many manual material handling tasks. An AMR can be equipped with custom end-of-arm tooling (end effectors) to aid in tasks such as material delivery, screw driving, picking and placing, adhering, sorting, and more. AMRs can perform similar tasks at multiple locations on a line utilizing just a single robot, maximizing return on investment, and minimizing initial automation costs. AMRs use cameras, laser-based navigation systems, and collaborative robotics to operate around already-existing features, including plant personnel in a manufacturing environment.
