About the AS/RS Buffer System - Midwest Engineered Systems

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 efficiencies for the demands of a production environment. The benefits go beyond just being a storage system, it can also become a highly efficient hub for managing the manufacturing process.

ASRS buffer system

With its automated material storage and retrieval processes, the MWES AS/RS buffer system can save valuable manufacturing time and reduce production errors. The MWES AS/RS system can store materials in not only an efficient manner but also 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 them 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.
