We have an extensive lineup of storage products that can meet the diverse needs in the field of logistics as well as manufacturing. Daifuku’s automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) provide versatile material handling solutions for factory automation as well as warehouses and distribution centers. Our AS/RS line includes the best-selling unit load for pallet-size loads and the high-speed mini load for smaller items stored in totes or cases. Both offer high-density storage capacity with a compact footprint. Along with this, we have cleanroom credentials that are crucial for the production and maintenance of semiconductors and LCD panels that are being used in smartphones and also storage systems for parts distribution.
Manufacturing and Distribution
Unit Load AS/RS
An automated warehouse that stores palletized products and parts in racks. There is a standalone unit load AS/RS that can be easily installed into an existing building, and a building-integrated version that supports the roof and walls with the racking. The systems are capable of storing a wide variety of items, including room temperature, refrigerated and frozen goods, hazardous materials, long items, and metal molds among many others.
Mini Load AS/RS
An automated warehouse that stores small products and parts in containers and cardboard boxes. The stacker crane’s extractor comes in an array of models according to application and required capacity, including a single-fork model that retrieves and deposits one case at a time, and a twin model that can handle two cases simultaneously.
Daifuku offers the Mobile Rack, a heavy-duty, high-density racking system; the Shuttle Rack L, a highly scalable, semi-automated racking system that uses battery-powered, horizontal-moving shuttle vehicles ; and the Vertical Carousel, a vertical rotating rack that is suited to the storage of small items.
Cleanroom Production Lines
The Clean Stocker is an AS/RS for temporary storage of work-in-progress products in the semiconductor manufacturing process and for conveying and storage of flat panel display (FPD) cassettes. The shelf modules are expandable to match the required numbers of semiconductors to be stored, and various stockers corresponding to the cassette size for each generation of FPD are available. Consideration is also given to high transfer capacity, prevention of dust generation, maintainability, and safety.
Zip Tower 30
The Zip Stocker 30 is a rotating shelf system maximizing storage capacity within a compact footprint. The Zip Tower is a configuration of the vertically stacking Zip Stocker that provides storage and lifting functions using free space under floors and roofs.
Nitrogen Purge Stocker
The Nitrogen Purge Stocker is a stocker enabling the containers being stored to be filled with nitrogen. This enables response to miniaturization, a keyword in the evolution of semiconductors.
Automobile Production Lines
SPDR, a parts temporary storage and sorting system.
The SPDR (pronounced spider) grabs and transports storage cases for parts placed on the floor inside the area automatically using its arm, and sorts and stacks them for storage. The chucking part of the arm is of unique construction and is the first in the world to be able to handle cases of different sizes. It is able to grab a single case or multiple stacked cases, and enables the picking retrieval of the lower tier cases, multiple retrievals, and grouping retrievals to flexibly respond to the requirements from the production line.
