Honeywell Intelligrated AS/RS shuttle system

AS/RS Systems

Automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) help you move higher volumes of product and make the best possible use of valuable storage space. Powered by Honeywell Intelligrated's innovative Momentum™ warehouse execution system, AS/RS are a key component of integrated systems that combine the right mix of automation, software and labor to optimize the productivity and throughput of unique operations.

From design, integration and control specifications to installation and commissioning, Honeywell Intelligrated's AS/RS experts can help you integrate the best-fit shuttle system for your specific operational requirements. Industry-leading Lifecycle Support Services give you 24/7 after-sales service and support through a nationwide network of local support centers, improved customer service with the Dashboard™ incident and project tracking database, and streamlined maintenance with the online parts catalog.

Our robust AS/RS solutions offer the flexibility and speed for every application, from e-commerce and omnichannel fulfillment to grocery distribution and everything in between.

  • Goods-to-operator order fulfillment — Combine with conveyor systems, lights or voice picking to reduce walk times and improve picking efficiency
  • Just-in-time inventory management — Quickly respond to reduced inventory levels to avoid stock outs while minimizing inventory costs
  • Product sequencing and buffering — Deliver the right products and quantities to keep downstream processes running smoothly and efficiently
  • Mixed-load, full-case and break-pack order fulfillment — Manage inventory release to support advanced processes that increase efficiency within the warehouse and beyond
  • Route-based delivery sequencing — Sequence product release to optimize truck load patterns for faster, more efficient deliveries
Goods-to-operator Systems
Goods-to-operator Systems tote and touchscreen station

Goods-to-operator (GTO) systems combine custom-designed, ergonomic stations with operator-friendly control systems to greatly improve order picker efficiencies. The physical layout of each GTO station is dependent on multiple factors, including: the mechanism used to deliver source inventory containers; SKU and order sizes; the physical profile of the operator; and system response time/productivity tradeoffs (such as number of put cubbies/concurrent orders).

GTO stations utilize modular designs to provide extensive opportunities to modify or change features based on specific customer needs. The fundamental purpose of a module is to quickly discard totes and replace them with new totes, but each application may require different hardware attachments to meet your unique functional needs. 

GTO station hardware is designed with multiple, layered options:

  • Right- or left-handed
  • Pick- and put-to-light buttons
  • Embedded industrial touchscreen (including pedestal-mounted — with or without keyboard)
  • Tethered or wireless handheld scanners

Common distribution and fulfillment applications include:

  • Pick station for multiple types of operations
  • Tote exchange
  • Manual induction station for loop sorters
  • Quality control inspection station
  • Receiving station for pallet breakdown

Manufacturing applications include:

  • Kitting operations
  • Product exchange for robot or manual work cells
  • Quality control inspection station
High-Volume Buffer Shuttle (HVBS) System
highly efficient case buffering system rendering

The HVBS is a comprehensive, highly efficient case buffering system designed to keep shipping, receiving and other downstream processes running smoothly. The system uses multiple aisles in close proximity to enable high-density storage and serve operations with quick-turn inventories and high throughput requirements.

  • Includes two or three aisles able to perform independently for increased throughput
  • Handles both cases and totes
  • Offers flexibility to process both inbound and outbound loads in a bi-directional system
High-Volume Single Aisle Shuttle (HVSAS) System
High-Volume Single Aisle Shuttle (HVSAS) System

Designed to provide the quick access to inventory necessary for efficient e-commerce fulfillment, the HVSAS delivers increased throughput and product release precision. This single-aisle, self-contained system is comprised of shuttle equipment, controls and integrated software.

  • Includes 350-foot storage aisle with two lifts and one goods-to-operator workstation HVSAS
  • Offers variations for tote sizes, storage depth, aisle additions, put walls and multi-SKU totes
  • Simplifies accountability and reduces project risk via single-source accountability for entire solution
One-level Shuttle (OLS) System
One-level Shuttle (OLS) System

Ideal for high-volume distribution, fulfillment and manufacturing operations with high-turn inventory storage and short order cycle times, Honeywell Intelligrated’s OLS system handles the widest variety of product types and largest carton sizes. It is highly flexible and efficient, providing quick access to cartons, totes and trays.

Typical applications include goods-to-operator order fulfillment and just-in-time inventory management. Other common uses include product sequencing and buffering to support mixed unit loads, full-case and break-pack order fulfillment, order consolidation and route-based delivery.

  • Range of load handlers to manage the widest variety of product types and largest carton sizes
  • Capable of storing and retrieving items from single and double storage
  • Reduces storage labor and footprint requirements compared to traditional storage methods
  • System scales as transactional volumes or storage demands increase
  • Single-source, integration system reduces project risk
