Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems for Small Goods. Mini Load systems are automated storage solutions and retrieval systems (AS/RS). They are generally used to store small goods, usually totes or cartons of goods from 25 to 250kg per unit. The goods are mechanically sorted by fully automated AS/RS-cranes. The cranes are guided from the top and bottom of the structure and retrieve totes from their location and deliver them to a picking station or directly onto a picking conveyor. Our automated racking installations are equipped with the most commonly used system integrators in the industry, making them easier for operators to understand and manage. Each of these automated storage systems can be adapted to suit any type of AS/RS device, and can be equipped with telescopic forks, side grips or other extracting tools. Goods in an automated racking system A well-designed racking system depends heavily on the shape, size and quality of totes or plastic bins being stored. The dimensions of these totes determine the measurements of each level within the system. The final dimensioning of the system must also consider the specific requirements of the AS/RS crane too.
