Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS)
Pacline Overhead Conveyors has developed an HMI (human machine interface) that could be used to convert any standard powered overhead conveyor into an automatic storage and retrieval system (ASRS).
The PACLINE Retriever™ is a simple and inexpensive control station arrangement that will allow an operator to locate and retrieve ANY item that may be hanging from the conveyor. The applications are numerous; clothing, uniforms, printing dies, paint racks, patterns and molds that are stored on the conveyor can be brought to the operator when requested. With the Retriever™, a single control pad can be programmed to operate several independent conveyors.
The controller in the PACLINE Retriever™ is a printed circuit board that processes the storage information and retrieval route. The numerical keyboard and command keys allow easy operator interfacing. The operator does not have to think hard about how the interface works, and can be trained in its use in a matter of minutes. The system is flexible to the application with many pre-programmed configurations in the unit.
- Easy unattended retrievals; type in the number and press GO
- Productivity gains by allowing the operator more time to do other things
- Productivity gains by shortening retrieval times
- Accurate storage and retrieval, no searching for items
- Organizes your facility better
