Alternatives to automated storage abound

From mobile robots to taller lift trucks, several exhibitors positioned their products as alternatives to ASRS.

For instance, Conveyco said its Go-Fer Bot offers greater flexibility at a lower price.

Among the products that Geek+ showed at MODEX was its Sky-Storage & Ground Pick system, which uses X-series “four-way” shuttle robots that take advantage of vertical space.

“With our PopPick station for totes, it’s an evolution of goods-to-person automation, without the infrastructure of ASRS,” Randy Randolph, vice president of channels and partnerships at Geek+, told Robotics 24/7.
