Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS) are used to handle and store the extensive inventory of cases or totes in a typical warehouse or intralogistics operation. Items vary and include fragile and refrigerated food items. The pick-up and put-away process comprise autonomous guided vehicles, crane and conveyor systems, robotic arms, cobots, and forklift trucks, along with warehouse management systems (WMS) or other supervisory software.
The key enabler is of course the barcode, and Datalogic has an extensive range of sensors, machine vision systems, smart cameras, and stationary industrial scanners to ensure the proper placement and retrieval of goods. The use of industrial handheld scanners and mobile computers complement any logistics activity at storage locations that hold inventory.
Datalogic products are designed to be modular to meet the demands and scale of any sized operation. Rugged product design ensures that the toughest logistics demands are met without being hampered by product performance or breakdowns.
