Automated storage and retrieval of wine and spirits
A vertical automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) can hold thousands of bottles of wine and spirits without additional floor space. Capable of handling between 500 and 100,000 pallets, the unit is configurable to application parameters and by velocity, allowing aged products to be sent out sooner. To achieve high throughput, the system organizes the most popular products in the front (closest to the input/output site) to minimize carrier travel distance for storage and retrieval. By permitting product control by weight and types, the system ensures that lighter items are placed on top and heavier items are placed near the bottom. Sealed construction ensures that accidental leaks do not damage another product or packaging material.
