Daifuku's heavy-duty aisle-opening pallet racking, Mobile Rack, is suitable for pallet storage simplifying location control and expediting forklift input/output operation. With its smooth dolly movement, user-friendly interface, and several safety devices, Daifuku's Mobile Rack has a great reputation in the material handling industry.
The mobile pallet racking system consists of two fixed racks at either end of the system, with racks on dollies in-between. Compared to conventional fixed racks that require aisle space every two rows, the mobile rack needs only 1 aisle space per system since dollies slide to open an aisle where needed. This system reduces the storage rack footprint by 50%.
Convenient operation modes
The system comes standard with three modes that are useful for warehousing with forklifts, manual case picking, and inventory work.
Full width passage mode
Full width passage mode allows quick forklift access to an aisle. By combining with guide rail and 3-way forklift or order picker forklift, aisle width can be reduced further.
Half-width passage mode
Half-width passage mode allows manual case picking in two aisles at the same time.
Equal Spacing mode
Equal spacing mode is useful for inventory-taking operation. It is also beneficial for air-conditioning efficiency in cold/frozen warehouse as it provides moderate space between stored items and lets chilled air circulate evenly.
The switch used to open and close the passageway has a large hemispherical button that is highly visible and easy to press from any angle. Its user-friendly design, including an operation panel that displays operating status and error details, has been highly evaluated at work sites.
Large buttons allow smooth operation while riding the forklift. The operation panel is equipped with operation mode selector switches, an emergency stop button, and a display showing the operation mode and error information.
Quick operation from forklift using remote controller.
Safety system for user protection
Running indicator with buzzer
A flashing light and an audible sound alert the surrounding workers of the rack's movement.
Removable safety interlock
By holding the interlock plate when a worker enters the passage, the system prevents others from releasing the interlock. This system further ensures the safety of picking operators.
If a forklift or worker enters an unlocked aisle or an aisle where the rack is closing, the sensor automatically stops the rack and locks the system.
Floor obstacle detector
Each dolly is equipped with electronic beam bumpers that automatically stop the dolly when it detects an obstacle on the floor. This non-contact system prevents crushing the load or damaging the bumper itself.
In addition to the stop button on the control panel, additional buttons can be installed on posts in the rack aisle or in the work area to further enhance safety.
When the seismic sensor detects a tremor that exceeds a set level, the system automatically stops the moving rack. In combination with the seismic isolation characteristics of the dolly itself, this system prevents loads from falling.
We offer the best method from three types of rail systems according to the floor and construction conditions.
Standard V-shape rail
Standard V-channel rail best fits for installation in a newly built warehouse. It has to be installed during building construction as a part of flooring work.
Daifuku's unique thin rail. It can be introduced in a short period of time for both new and existing warehouses by minimizing the concrete curing area and labor.
Rail-less & Spot magnet
Rail-less magnetic-guided type is suitable for existing building and rented warehouse where flooring work is restricted. (Depending on the quality of the existing floor surface, this method may not be applicable.)
Most popular racking for pallet storage
Rack for roll-shaped load
Custom designed rack for coil and other odd-shaped products.
Cantilever rack for long object
Cantilever rack is convenient for storing long objects such as steel bars.
Special Environment & Opeartion
Cold resistant model for temperatures down to -30 degrees Celsius fits for freezer and refrigeration warehouses for food products.
Control panels and intrusion detectors can be placed on both sides of Mobile Rack, making it accessible from both sides.
