Automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS)Automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) are an integral part of modern logistics concepts. These systems are used for the storage and retrieval of pallets in the fully automatic high-bay warehouse. Due to various factors wear occurs on drive wheels, guide rollers and rails.
Technical ObstacleSigns of wear on the wheel-rail interface of ASRS are a typical appearance in the automated warehouse. Relatively short operating lives of wheels, as well as metal flakes next to the rail are a typical indicator of signs of wear. Constantly increasing demands and higher utilization of the storage and retrieval machines lead to higher wear rates of moving parts. Factors such as hardness of the material, wheel and rail profile, and general alignment of the system play an important role in relation to the service life of certain parts.
The consequence of the wear rate is a shutdown of the equipment for maintenance work like wheel replacement which is associated with costs and downtime. This reduces the overall availability of the systems.
SolutionSPC® wear protection systems continuously coat the rails of the storage and retrieval machines with a dry, solid protective coating. This coating is transferred to the wheels and guide rollers of the ASRS. The protective coating on the wheel-rail interface distributes the surface pressure (further information) more evenly, thus reducing metal wear by up to 80% and resulting in a 3-5x increase in the service life of wheels and rails.
The application of SPC® systems serves to preventively minimize wear. Necessary maintenance measures such as wheel replacements are drastically reduced. This results in an increased availability of your ASRS.
Our experienced technical consultants are always at your disposal, virtually or on-site to choose the right individual solution for your stacker cranes.
Mechanical wear on cranes, stacker cranes and rotating equipment can be reduced by up to 80%.
Increase Service Life
Due to the wear reduction, the service life of parts such as wheels and rails can be extended by a factor of three to five.
Increase Machine Availability
Reduce planned or unplanned downtimes by applying preventive maintenance and increase the availability of your systems.
