Automated storage and retrieval systems (also known as AS/RS or ASRS) motors power the equipment that automatically positions and retrieve items from specific storage locations in warehouses and factory stores. ASRS is a combination of computer-controlled mechanical devices and this industry has grown rapidly as a result of emerging IoT technologies and the global adoption of online purchasing. Changes in the way we buy things have led to a greater need for warehousing and in turn, more efficient, quicker ways of managing inventory and stock.
One of the key benefits of ASRS is its ability to complete tasks accurately and quickly. These systems are particularly useful for moving high volumes of loads in and out of storage.
ASRS systems vary in size from small systems used for example, in pharmacies, to larger computer-controlled warehouse systems. Parvalux ASRS motors are the natural first choice for a number of manufacturers because of their proven reliability and strength. Our ASRS motors are fully customisable to suit a range of applications and we can also quickly develop a motor design specific to the available space envelope.
We frequently work with our customers’ engineers and our design team is fluent in the latest SolidWorks 3D CAD software.
Parvalux motors and gearboxes are also available through the global maxon distribution network. Your local maxon office can be found here.
