Signode, a leading manufacturer of a broad range of end-of-line packaging equipment, tools, consumables as well as end-to-end automation and warehouse automation solutions, will be showcasing its StorFast technology at MODEX. The event, which will take place in Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center on 28th-31st March 2022, will also feature additional Signode solutions that support the warehousing, distribution and logistics operations of its customers.
Signode’s StorFast Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) is an innovative cart-based solution consisting of powered carts and lifts that automatically move pallets in and out of storage positions in the warehouse. The newly enhanced cart-based StorFast system operates at twice the speed with improved control for acceleration and deceleration of the robotic carts. In addition, StorFast components can now handle pallets weighing up to 4,400 lbs (1,995kg).
The StorFast ASRS delivers an intelligent logistics management solution integrating with order management, warehouse management, and order fulfilment systems. The system offers a fully customisable logistics solution to enhance throughput to meet customers’ demands and optimise operational resources and improve inventory management.
“Signode’s StorFast ASRS delivers a fully integrated warehouse automation system solution to maximise operational savings for the supply chain,” said Byron J. Paul, Group President, Signode. “Our customers are increasingly looking to invest in smart automation solutions. Signode is responding, as our organisation has for the past 100 years. We’re collaborating with our customers to help them achieve greater profitability by delivering new technologies and equipment that provide faster throughput, uptime and operational efficiency.”
In addition to the ASRS, the Signode automation product portfolio includes a full range of robot-based depalletising, palletising and material handling solutions, all providing cost and performance advantages over other traditional warehouse systems.
Visitors to MODEX 2022 will be able to see the technology in action at booth B2013.
