Buffering and Sequencing of Products Requires ASRS Experience According to Bastian Solutions


Indianapolis, IN -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/26/2015 -- High speed buffers have additional throughput capacity beyond a typical mini load automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) which allow distribution centers to store and retrieve orders in a ready to ship sequence which are ideal for high volume applications. Additionally it saves space, system complexity, and expense, as well as relatively modular and easy to expand.

This technology has the ability to accept a random variety of carton sizes, store them and then send them back out in a new, customer specific sequence to build the final order. The system uses a unique high performance design that makes the buffer ideal for high-volume box handling and sorting operations. This type of application is often found where "Store Ready" or "Rainbow" pallet orders are being created. As a result of the speed of this technology, the need for accumulation conveyor lanes can be eliminated thus saving space, system complexity, and expense.

The technology is designed with variable speeds in all axis which Bastian Engineers will match throughput requirements. Servo and vector drives support vertical, horizontal, and shuttle movement or smooth, precise load control that prevents damage. Despite its high speed, the equipment is remarkably quiet, operating at typical office sound levels.

Bastian Solutions will exhibit at the WestPack Conference (Booth #4979) from February 10-12 at the Anaheim Convention Center, CA.

Following WestPack, Bastian Solutions will be exhibiting at ProMat 2015 (Booth #3953) held March 23-26 at Chicago's McCormick Place.
