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
Unit load AS/RS store products and parts in pallet units in shelf racks. We provide systems that can be easily installed in existing buildings or rack-supported building systems. Our systems can be applied to not only room temperature items, but also refrigerated, frozen, hazardous materials, long materials, metal dies, and other diverse items for storage.
Mini Load AS/RS
Mini load AS/RS store small products and parts in container and cardboard box units. Using stacker cranes, the system can use a single carriage to store and retrieve one case at a time, or a twin carriage that allows multiple cases to be processed simultaneously, with other diverse specifications available. In addition, we have a full line up of multiple specifications and products to match the needed usage and performance, such as the Shuttle Rack, which consists of transfer carts on each rack level and a vertical lifter.
We have a range of racks to respond to diverse storage needs, including the New Goodrack, most suitable for storage of heavy items in pallet units; the Goodshelf, a medium weight storage shelf for excellent storage of small items, cases and loose items; the Mobile Rack, a heavy weight movable rack that allows high-density storage by moving its shelves; and the Mobile Shelf, a medium weight moving shelf.
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.
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.
