MegaStar Systems, part of KRI Group of Zurich, Switzerland, has introduced the MM550 controller for inventory management in factories that use automated storage and retrieval systems.
Operators simply enter a stock keep unit (SKU) number into a keyboard, and the MegaStar system automatically delivers the requested item out of stock. A range of options can be used in plastics applications.
The controller can store up to 10,000 single items or SKUs per retrieval machine, held in up to 512 trays or shelves. One MM550 can control up to 31 machines via the Ethernet.
MegaStar is based in Marietta, Ohio.
