mini-load AS/RS system, mini-load automated warehouse

Daifuku's Miniload Automated Storage and Retrieval System (Miniload AS/RS) provides fast and efficient storage and retrieval for containers, trays, cases and other small loads. Its high speeds ensure timely inventory supply for both order-picking and manufacturing operations. The miniload AS/RS is user-friendly and can be easily integrated into existing material flow.

Features

1. Fast and accurate

The Mini-load stacker crane moves quickly and accurately to handle throughput for high-volume order picking or manufacturing.

2. High-rise, high-density storage

Mini-load AS/RS utilizes more vertical space than traditional selective rack systems. Loads are placed on shelves with high precision to optimize storage density.

3. Smooth, quiet performance

The Mini-load stacker crane uses aluminum masts and urethane wheels to achieve stable and quiet movement, even at high speeds. Our low-noise mini-load AS/RS can be installed virtually anywhere, including next to offices or on upper floors in buildings.

4. Improved operating efficiency

The high-speed stacker crane automatically stores and retrieves loads quickly and precisely, delivering them directly to operators for picking. This eliminates time spent looking for and retrieving items. Mini-load AS/RS are also perfect for sequencing items prior to sorting, improving the efficiency of later handling processes.

5. Reduced energy consumption

The latest Mini-load stacker crane model is 15% more lightweight than the previous model.The motor was also made smaller, reducing electricity consumption.
