Mid-Load UltraStore Automated Storage & Retrieval System

High density, labor saving, goods-to-man operation

Automatically store and retrieve products under the direction of a computerized control system. With an emphasis on reliability, flexibility, and cost effectiveness, the UltraStore automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS) begins with a custom design specifically tuned to target an organization’s unique automated high-density storage requirements. Whether the loads are items, cases, pallets or material with custom handling requirements, the ISD UltraStore ASRS is built to meet your needs.  Various mast, platform and extractor designs can be utilized to nearly any load.  The UltraStore ASRS’ flexibility includes a number of standard designs and/or ISD custom-engineered solutions for quick and easy implementation. The UltraStore automated storage and retrieval system is based on a crane that rides directly on the floor surface (no need to cut out existing concrete floors).  The ASRS moves up and down the aisle while an extraction platform simultaneously moves to the proper height and inserts or extracts the load at the storage location.  The extractor can be designed to use forks, belts or custom gripper devices depending on the specific size, weight and handling requirements.  Retrieved items are delivered to a workstation or integrated conveyor.


Never lose productivity, even during scheduled maintenance periods

System downtime can be virtually eliminated by implementing the Perfect-Uptime™ option.  The surface mounted UltraStore ASRS crane and extractor system can be easily moved out of the aisle.  The Perfect-Uptime™ vehicle, with special fork attachment, is then used to pick and replenish loads until the crane and extractor unit is ready to be put in service again.

Smart design means cost and time savings

The UltraStore automated storage and retrieval system has been designed and engineered utilizing off-the- shelf parts to reduce the cost and lead time often associated with proprietary spare parts.  Likewise, the modular approach to the system’s design allows for different retrieval forks, belts or grippers to be utilized in the future if the application changes.  Very few automated systems have as much flexibility built right into the design and construction which helps with the cost of ownership for years to come.

Flexible design makes relocating or moving your ASRS fast and easy

Because the UltraStore automated storage and retrieval system guide rail is mounted on the surface of the floor (not embedded in the floor or on pylons), it’s faster and easier to install and move for future uses.  Whether the move is within the same facility or to another location, the UltraStore ASRS can be relocated quickly and efficiently
