DAIFUKU at LogiMAT exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany/ 8th - 10th March

At LogiMAT 2016 Daifuku are presented as an innovative supplier of complex logistics solutions. The system integrator has a high degree of vertical integration and produces many automation components in-house. Showing how these are used in a variety of customer solutions, the supplier of material handling systems can be found in hall 3, booth 3 D 41. There visitors will see a selection from the extensive product portfolio of Daifuku: the Shuttle Rack M for the dynamic handling of containers and cartons particularly for e-commerce applications, and the driverless transport system SmartCart® Automatic Guided Cart.

In intralogistics, new trends are emerging across industries from: smaller batch sizes, sequencing and providing for an increased number of SKUs. Since conventional storage and retrieval machines are reaching their technical limits to meet these requirements, Daifuku developed the Shuttle Rack M. "We adapt our solutions to new challenges constantly," reports Thomas Balluff, Branch Manager Factory Automation & Distribution Automation at Daifuku. "We support our customers in realizing their material flow in an economically sustainable way." The Shuttle Rack M is particularly efficient in that: It allows precise sequencing and flexibility in a very dynamic environment. Compared to a conventional storage and retrieval unit, the Shuttle Rack M is able to achieve eight to ten times higher throughputs. At the Daifuku booth visitors can also find out about SmartCart®. The driverless transport system can be used as a towing vehicle as well as a load carrying vehicle. SmartCart® navigates by means of a magnetic tape, whereby the starting and finishing positions and route changes can be made quickly and easily. Customers benefit from time and cost efficient logistics operations."
