Original Press Release:

The Retriever(TM) Automatic Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS)

PACLINE recently introduced the RETRIEVER™ which is an ASRS device (Automated Storage Retrieval System), This HMI™ (Human Machine Interface) is used to bring specified items back to a load/unload area that have been stored on an overhead conveyor system.

The Pacline RETRIEVER™ is a simple and inexpensive control station arrangement that will allow an operator to locate and retrieve ANY item that may be stored on the conveyor without having to wait for a complete cycle. Possible storage applications are numerous; garments, printing dies, paint racks, patterns, moulds, that are stored on the conveyor can be brought to the operator when requested. With the RETRIEVER™, a single control pad can operate a two tier conveyor for double the storage capacity.   Items can be catalogued from 1-100 on the first tier and 101-200 on the second tier.

The RETRIEVER™  also acts as an interface between a host computer and the conveyor.  It will control a single or double tier storage conveyor system from one device.  If you have a large inventory database with several conveyors with keypads all loaded with a catalogued inventory, the RETRIEVER™ can handle the job of returning a particular item quickly and efficiently. The RETRIEVER™ also handles a load retrieval queue.  By either manually entering several position numbers or instructed through a computer connection, the RETRIEVER™ will methodically move from one position to the next as items are either loaded or unloaded and then automatically move onto the next item in queue.

The PAC-LINE™ (model C-250) enclosed track overhead conveyor is famous for turning unused overhead space into valuable real estate by moving many items up and off the floor area by storing them on a conveyor system.
