(PRWEB) March 2, 2011
US-based Savoye Inc. today announced that their PTS Storage Retrieval System (SRS) will be operational at the ProMat Show March 21-24 in Chicago, Illinois. PTS, a fully automatic high density storage and retrieval miniload system, is highly flexible and scalable allowing for fast and accurate order picking and buffering.
Customers have experienced varying throughput gains while increasing efficiencies and reducing labor costs. “Our goal was to boost performance by 20%. Instead, we increased throughput by 20%,” said Ed Guichelaar, logistics manager at Shimano. “We now pick around 10,000 orders per day, compared to 8,500 previously. Without this system, we simply would not have been able to cope with the increase in throughput.”
Savoye’s unique approach to gathering, analyzing and simulating data allows the company to help its customers select the right level of automation for their needs. PTS is a highly efficient method to perform each picking by using an innovative approach to AS/RS miniload and presenting picks to the operator. The PTS system utilizes numerous standard modular components allowing for:
- Maximum pick and replenishment productivity
- Maximum pick accuracy
- Highly ergonomic interface
- Optimal Cube for various size cases, totes and/or trays
- System flexibility for variations in throughput requirements
- Scalable for future expansion capability
Savoye, is a leading innovator of autonomous vehicle ASRS, with PTS as the latest example. This now proven system was developed several years ago to address the growing need for highly dynamic, efficient, accurate, and scalable methods of each pick order fulfillment.
