TGW-ERMANCO Introduces Larger AS/RS Commissioner

TGW-ERMANCO has added the Commissioner XL to its AS/RS product line. At 60 feet high and 38 feet deep, the Commissioner XL is 50% taller and 80% longer than the original Commissioner. Offering the Commissioner in two sizes allows the specific requirements of an operation to be met most efficiently.

The Commissioner XL is a compact high-performance vertical storage/sortation system which provides order-fulfillment and sortation capabilities in ambient, refrigerated and freezer environments. It is ideally suited for WIP buffering, product staging, order consolidation, order picking, and sortation prior to shipping or palletizing. Excellent applications of the Commissioner XL include route stop sequencing, store aisle sequencing, or sequencing products for palletizing.

A lifting beam design is the basis for the optimal storage utilization with high-throughput capability achieved by the Commissioner XL. The load handler stores and retrieves loads by traveling horizontally along the lifting beam, which moves up and down to the correct storage position in the Commissioner XL. Typically integrated into a system, the Commissioner XL can be used as a single unit or multiple units. When multiple units are integrated, routine maintenance can be performed on one Commissioner without interrupting the workflow.

TGW-ERMANCO is a provider of integrated material handling systems and is a member of the worldwide TGW Logistics Group. TGW Logistics Group is one of the top 20 largest integrated material handling system providers in the world. For more information visit
