Revamping ASRS

Your ASRS installation has been in operation for many years. As time goes by, the wear and tear part had to be replaced for sure and for the structural mechanical part will last long. However some of the electrical component is becoming totally obsolete, that could cause a difficulty in case of an urgent replacement of a component and warehouse will cause to stop operation for some unnecessary time.

The computer hardware, the operating system and user interface are no longer a standard, and not so user friendly and flexible like Windows based.

Revamping Purpose

In view of the current situation in the logistics, for the replacement/installation of all the relevant equipment part that are either discontinued or to be discontinued, the component that are presently difficult or even impossible to find in the market, now EFACEC are possible to make the warehouse run 10 more years with maximum rehabilitee and performance.

Revamping third-party ASRS

In the second project, Efacec was tasked with revamping an existing ASRS warehouse for another established Asian bank. The support scope involved the upgrading of the client’s material handling system (MHS), upgrading of the current Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) conveyor system and stacker cranes, and replacing obsolete electrical components. Additionally, Efacec seamlessly integrated the client’s warehouse control systems with its new MHS Operator Interface.

The client required Efacec to work around its operations, limiting installations to the weekend and off-peak periods. This resulted in a project duration that was longer than usual, but Efacec was flexible in accommodating the client’s request. A certain degree of competence is required to revamp an existing third-party solution, and Efacec’s engineers adeptly handled the retrofitting of the warehouse for this client.

Jorge Couto concluded: “Over the past 30 years, we have worked with different banks across Asia. Efacec has remained a trusted logistics partner for the banking industry, and it’s a testament of the Company’s advanced automated warehousing solutions and expertise.

“As Efacec continues to grow, under the direction of the Körber Group, we strive to develop more integrated and innovative logistics technologies for other industries.”
