The Mid-Load AS/RS system uniquely utilizes a crane that rides on the surface. No cutting or permanently embedding the track into your facility’s floor. The system utilizes a blend of non-proprietary and off the shelf components to provide a tremendous value in both the initial acquisition cost and cost of ownership. Its compact design saves up to 85% of floor space while maintaining flexibility. Systems can easily be expanded or even relocated as future requirements evolve.
