Modula to roll out single-piece AS/RS

By DC Velocity Staff

Modula Inc., a unit of Italy-based company System Group, will roll out next year an automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) that will enable users to retrieve one piece at a time, instead of multiple pieces as through Modula's traditional AS/RS.

The new unit should be perfected by the end of the year, according to Modula executives. It will leverage much of the same technology used in its traditional system, executives said.

The new unit is designed for users who are in the business of retrieving individual parts like aeronautical equipment, and need the precision and certainty that comes with retrieving only one piece at a time, company executives said.
