ASRS for C1D1

03/21/2019 11:10 AM

I am looking for an ASRS system to handle a pallet about 1 ton, 5' square, to a series of locations within a C1D1 environment.

If you scroll to the bottom on this page you'll see that we have a directory of AS/RS systems by state.

Unbelievable, because the simple use of a search engine and a telephone will do that. No, this post is about getting others to do that instead and the invitation is declined.

At least the other end of the phone call will know what the mystery abbreviations mean.

Just so you know, I have been searching the engines for over a week now, and have yet to find anything compliant, that's why I came here to see if the experts had knowledge. This is a special application, nothing standard about it. I have already contacted most of those that are listed here (although not many reply due to the C1D1 requirement). This post is about trying to find a solution that doesn't appear to exist, from other's that may have had experience with it. Thank you for your hurtful helpful words.

Posting anonymously just makes you look like a flake.

Using undefined acronyms also makes you look like a flake.

From the mention of pallets (5 x 5 is rather unusual), I could pretty easily guess ASRS = automatic storage and retrieval system, but only from a bit of experience. The C1D1 was unclear to me at first, but it means Class 1 Division 1 as far as electrical hazards go. Not everyone will know either of those.

I think SE is correct, except you may be able to find someone to build it for you. Try searching for Automated Guided Vehicle specialists like Transbotics. Once you have the vehicle solved I am guessing most of the rest can be static racking and low voltage sensors.

An alternative could also be an automation integrator (my industry) who could bring together the vehicle and infrastructure under one contractor. PM me and I can give you a contact.

Word of warning, it will not be cheap. I don't think C1D1 requirements are commonly well understood in material handling automation, particularly in a large area like I assume you are dealing with and anyone worth working with will cover some of the risk with money. A reputable company will pass if they think you don't have the budget. You may still get all no quotes because some of the sensing and communication hardware needed to make an AGVs safe around people is not safe for C1D1 environments.

Schaeffer has US offices in Charlotte, NC that can execute that scale of project.

The OP doesn't give enough info to know if this scope is appropriate or not but it does make me think that the C1D1 area may not be the entire ASRS space so maybe the challenge is getting the pallet out of that space to the ASRS. He or she needs to provide more detail.

It is the entire ASRS space unfortunately. Thanks for your comment.
