Honeywell has launched its latest intelligent automated processing solutions designed to help warehouses, distribution centers and manufacturing sites receive, process and fill orders faster and more accurately, while potentially reducing storage space.

Honeywell's Next Generation Automatic Storage and Retrieval System (AS/RS) uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to enable warehouse and distribution center operators to better keep up with unprecedented e-commerce growth.

Ben Cardwell, President of Honeywell Intelligrated, said: “The fast-growing retail market is driving distribution centers to find and use innovative, flexible, and automated e-commerce order fulfillment methods. Increasing inventory, rising land costs, and other pressures are driving the most Effective use of available space.

"Honeywell's next-generation AS/RS technology enables our customers to make better use of free vertical space, which may eliminate the need to build or lease additional warehouse space."

Facts have proved that space-saving solutions such as AS/RS are the top priority for distribution centers that require efficient operation. A recent Honeywell study showed that six out of ten e-commerce companies plan to invest in automated storage and retrieval systems next year.

Honeywell's scalable automation solutions maximize the use of floor space and use high-speed shuttles and configurable end and vertical lift positions in the aisle to help effectively manage more than 20,000 SKUs.

Combined with Honeywell Intelligrated's Momentum warehouse execution system with decision-making intelligence, once the order reaches the distribution center system, the shuttle will retrieve the goods from one or more channels and transport them directly to the goods-to-person station for order consolidation.

According to Honeywell, the shuttle solution is "very suitable for handling small boxes, pallets and tote bags."

Cardwell said: "Distribution operators are now required to contribute more to the overall business goals, requiring managers to streamline processes, reduce costs, and maximize the return on facility capital investment.

"Compared with traditional picking methods, the throughput of this technology has increased by nearly 40%, allowing labor to be used for other value-added tasks."

Honeywell has always been at the forefront of innovation and development solutions, using artificial intelligence and machine learning to automate complex tasks in a rapidly changing work environment.

These latest technological innovations are behind our latest solutions, including smart and flexible depalletizers, designed to help warehouses and distribution centers automate the manual process of unloading pallets.

The next generation of AS/RS is part of a total integrated solution based on mature concepts that applies the right combination of automation, software, and labor-optimized productivity and throughput to the unique requirements of each operation.

Honeywell Intelligrated provides one of the industry's most extensive advanced automation technology and software portfolios, including the latest warehouse robotics technology and hybrid solutions that combine the advantages of multiple technologies.
