About the AS/RS Buffer System
MWES Refines Production Management
Leveraging technology proven in the largest of warehouses, MWES’ Automatic Storage and Retrieval System (AS/RS) buffer system is designed to provide similar efficiencies for the demands of a production environment. The benefits go beyond just as a storage system, it can become a highly efficient hub for managing the manufacturing process.
With its automated material storage and retrieval processes, the MWES AS/RS buffer system can give a facility back valuable manufacturing time and reduce production errors. The MWES AS/RS system can store materials in not only in an efficient manner, it allows for production environments to quickly manage materials as needed. The system does this by cataloging materials and their locations by how they integrate into the production process. These material storage and monitoring capabilities offer a number of advantages.
With both the tooling and materials in the same location and an overarching management system to run it, the system can become a central hub for the factory. Receiving can earmark materials upon arrival for certain jobs and send it to be immediately added to the AS/RS system.
The MWES system can manage its location and retrieve it at the touch of a button. The AS/RS system can be the go-to point to verify whether these materials are in-house and ready for production.
