AS/RS Buffer Systems: Warehousing on a Whole New Level

Warehouse management is a complex and challenging task that requires efficient and reliable solutions. One of the most innovative and effective solutions is the automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) buffer system, designed to optimize inventory storage and retrieval, reduce travel time, increase throughput and enhance flexibility.

The True Cost of Workplace Injuries and the Solution

Workplace injuries and illnesses are a significant problem for workers and their employers in every sector of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, over 2.6 million work-related nonfatal injuries occurred in 2021 in the private sector, with manufacturing jobs having the highest rate of workplace injuries

What’s on our floor: SkyHook extra-large positioners

Automation systems come in a variety of sizes. Some are small enough to process sensitive medical operations. They scale up from there to robotic systems that can process parts the size or weight of a car and beyond.

Are your products ready for manufacturing?

Knowing exactly how tight tolerances need to be can go a long way in reducing production system costs. Over-specifying tolerances will move integrators from more cost-effective machines to expensive, highly-specialized equipment.

Streamline kitting operations for production efficiency

Keeping production on track with the right components in high variability, low volume assembly and manufacturing can be a headache that tends to affect throughput. When product variations are small in nature but important to functionality, these issues can not only affect production efficiency, it can also make trouble in keeping quality on track.

Manual Production Line Updates for Increased Throughput – No Automation Needed

Whether the human-centric production process revolves around high dexterity operations or large scale, heavy industrial applications, greater efficiency can be found by adopting systems used primarily in automation-first systems. Many times, production volume increases can be had without resulting in replacing workers with automated processes and can even be installed without large disruptions to current production.

MWES launches new production optimizing AS/RS buffer system

With its automated material storage and retrieval processes, the MWES ASRS buffer system can give a facility back valuable manufacturing time and reduce production errors. The MWES ASRS 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.
