Automated Storage & Retrieval System
An Automated Storage & Retrieval System, or AS/RS, is a combination of equipment and controls that handles, stores, and retrieves materials with precision, accuracy and speed. Systems can vary from relatively simple, manually controlled point of use storage structures to computer-controlled storage and retrieval systems that are completely integrated into the manufacturing and distribution process. A Daifuku-manufactured AS/RS enables companies to recapture floor space, improve efficiency and ensure inventory control.
Mini Load AS/RS
Daifuku's mini load is a high-speed, high-density buffer that can replace conventional static rack to maximize vertical storage space within a compact footprint. The mini load moves and stores irregularly shaped goods or parts placed in: stacking totes, collapsible totes, nesting containers and case/cardboard boxes. Items are transported to/from the mini load by conveyor, Shuttle fork, Side belt, Side Clamp, Sorting Transfer Vehicle (STV) or Automatic Guided Vehicle (AGV).
Unit Load AS/RS
Daifuku's unit load is a high-density pallet buffer designed to maximize vertical storage space while maintaining a compact footprint. Several models are available to handle pallet loads from 500 to 3,000 kg (1,100 to 6,600 lbs.) and rack heights up to 36m (118 ft.) The unit load can also be used to store long or bulky items, hazardous materials and it is also ideal for freezer (to -40 degrees C/-40 degrees F) and low-noise applications. In addition to a standard unit load, Daifuku also offers double deep rack configuration.
Daifuku's unit load stores and retrieves items placed on pallets, euro pallets, box pallets or roll box pallets. Items are transported to/from the unit load by conveyor, forklift, Sorting Transfer Vehicle (STV) or Automatic Guided Vehicle (AGV).
