Unit Load Systems
For more than 40 years now, viastore systems has been planning, developing and implementing innovative automated unit load systems, rack-supported structures and turnkey automated pallet warehouses as complete systems including storage/retrieval machines (AS/RS), conveyor equipment, pick stations according to the “Goods-to-Man” principle, programmable logic controller (PLC), material flow system (MFS) and warehouse management software (WMS) in order to enable efficient warehousing and goods distribution.
Thus viastore systems is instrumental in bringing greater efficiency and economic viability to your flow of goods and materials. viastore realizes turnkey unit-load systems in rack structure with overall heights of up to 45 meters (148 ft) and even more. To ensure the unlimited lifetime of the steel structure, viastore uses high-grade materials with reliable corrosion protection.
Warehouse software for all processes in the unit-load system
The heart of your warehouse and logistics center is the viad@t warehouse management system (WMS). This warehouse software manages, monitors and controls all processes within the system, thereby significantly reducing the error rate – not only in automated storage/retrieval systems and automated mini load systems, but also in conventional, manually operated warehouses or in forklift-serviced systems. All processes are transparent, energy saving and promote minimal distances. Products in automated systems are stored automatically according to their access frequency. In forklift-serviced systems, the forklift control system within this warehouse management software ensures route-optimized operation.
Energy-saving and powerful storage/retrieval machines
viapal storage/retrieval machines (AS/RS) are fitted with energy recovery function or systems for energy compensation as standard. They operate smoothly and reach speeds of up to 240 m/min (262 yd/min). They lift pallets, skeleton-type containers, large load containers, coils, rolls, bales and much more, weighing up 3 metric tons (6,614 lb.).
viastore systems offers versions for single, double deep and multiple deep storage (channel storage systems). Our wide range of standard load handling devices ensure that your products, no matter what size or nature, are treated with care and are stored in a standardized and space-saving manner. viapal automatically directs the goods to the order picker, travel times are almost completely eliminated. The storage/ retrieval machines (AS/RS) are controlled using the latest technology such as IPC or SPS (Siemens S7).
High-density storage and optimized logistical processes
With viastore unit-load systems, you can achieve the highest possible storage density relative to the storage floor space. viastore experts analyze your logistics processes and optimize them sustainably. All for the benefit of your high-performance intralogistics.
