Integrated Materials Handling Solutions
Mini-load cranes represent a version of automatic storage and retrieval system which is designed to handle loads that are typically contained in small containers or totes, with load weights generally up to 200 kg.
Systems are modular and can be extended once built. Carton storage and retrieval is also possible by this method and mini-loads have a wide variety of applications ranging from book storage within leading world libraries to the storage and retrieval of components and garments.
SDI can provide you with the most up-to-date and innovative mini-load ASRS currently available to store and pick your products.
Systems are designed to meet your specific product requirements and can be integrated with all other internal distribution logistics systems controlled by your existing host system.
Frequently associated with high-bay warehouses, pallet cranes are usually built into the infrastructure of a storage system in which the racking forms part of the construction of the building.
The long, narrow aisles are framed on both sides by a steel storage rack structure into, and from which, loads are automatically stored and retrieved by programmable controls.
The storage and retrieval functions in each aisle are performed by an automated crane which typically consists of a floor running structural frame with a vertical mast that guides and supports a hoisting carriage on which loads are carried. One or more shuttles or insertion/extraction devices on the hosted carriage loads pallets into, and out of, adjacent or opposing storage rack positions.
All three machine motions – horizontal (along aisle), vertical and shuttle (in/out of location) action are independently and automatically controlled.
SDI can provide you with the most up-to-date and innovative pallet crane systems to locate, store and pick your products. These systems are designed to meet your specific product requirements and are not necessarily restricted to new build facilities. They can be integrated with all other internal distribution logistics systems controlled by your new or existing host system.
