    • Storage and Retrieval Machines and Pallet-Shuttle-System

      DAMBACH Lagersysteme has been operating successfully in the areas of intralogistics, warehousing technology, and automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) since 1974. DAMBACH was one of the first companies worldwide to install curve-going storage and retrieval machines in a high bay warehouse and is the global market leader in this market segment.

      Automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) consist of various installations, warehousing technology, machinery, and the related organizational elements. A defined storage capacity is assured by material and data flows. The ASRS is therefore a key element in intralogistics.

      The Tasks of a Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS)

      The aims of an automated storage and retrieval system are to optimize the actual material flows and reduce the stocks held by improving the organizational structures. Irrespective of the type of warehouse, DAMBACH ASRS help to ensure that stocks are always ready for dispatch and fluctuations in demand are absorbed. Depending on the solution adopted, operations can be carried out with storage and retrieval machines or shuttle systems. Choosing the right warehousing technology not only shortens access times and transport distances (which improves warehouse efficiency), but also increases throughput and flexibility. Automation in a warehouse can ensure a consistently high standard of deliveries.

        • Storage and Retrieval Machines

        • Industry and Commerce

          The wide range of products guarantees you the necessary throughput with optimum space utilisation whether using aisle-bound or curve-going rail-guided storage and retrieval machines (SRMs). If required, subsequent performance upgrades are even possible with the models of the modular design – straight out of the box, so to speak. Such upgrades can be achieved by retrofitting additional drives, for example. Single-wheel, twin-wheel or a third drive unit plus toothed rack mechanisms are available. That results in graduated, application-based SRM upgrades.

              The MONO and MULTI rail-guided storage and retrieval machines are available in single- and twin-mast versions. The choice of an optimum SRM depends on the unit loads and the requirements. Therefore, a bespoke solution is developed for every type of load. The variable design is particularly advantageous for heavy loads.

              The DAMBACH MINI-LOAD reveals its strengths when it comes to the storage of goods in automated small-parts warehouses. Its low approach dimensions, speed and secure transport make this storage and retrieval machine a convincing answer for the handling of small-parts containers, trays and boxes. With single- and twin-mast versions available, it therefore represents a reliable, flexible solution for every warehouse. Storage and retrieval machines (SRMs) play a key role when it comes to efficiency and performance in high bay or small-parts warehouses. Therefore, in order to meet the highest demands, SRMs must be reliable, long-lasting, fast, precise, safe and energy-efficient. But more than that, storage and retrieval machines from DAMBACH are the convincing answer because of their flexibility right across virtually all storage systems. Together with load-handling equipment developed and produced by us, our rail-guided SRMs become the key element in automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS). Another benefit of the high-quality parts and components is their excellent ease of servicing. Our warehousing solutions are always 100% DAMBACH solutions, meaning that we can respond flexibly to complex or challenging demands.

              • MULTI

              • From Aisle to Aisle: MULTI Rail-Guided Storage and Retrieval Machines

                Direct Access to Every Storage Aisle

                The rail-guided storage and retrieval machines of our MULTI series are curve-going models and can reach every storage aisle effortlessly via special rails and points—directly, quickly, and safely, and without the need for a costly mechanical traverser. So operations are not interrupted. This clever solution for changing aisles improves access times considerably in any warehouse system.

                When equipped with suitable load handling elements, MULTI storage and retrieval machines (SRMs) are extremely versatile. They can be supplied as single or twin mast versions for handling practically any type of load, from drinks to car bodies. DAMBACH designs and produces its own load handling attachments tailored perfectly to the respective lifting unit. For example, double-deep telescopic forks for utilizing the available space more effectively, or rotating/traverse forks with adjustable tines for handling closed pallets. Therefore, MULTI rail-guided SRMs are suitable for a whole range of applications in automated high bay warehouses.

                Intelligent Systems Ensure Availability and a Long Service Life

                Intelligent controls coordinate the combined operation of the individual storage and retrieval machines. When several cranes are in use, the operating strategy can be preset via parameters. That guarantees high availability through variable aisle allocation. And in the case of malfunctions, one unit can take over the tasks of another. A further increase in performance is possible at any time by adding more SRMs. The SRMs of the MULTI series also set standards when it comes to wear as the patented rail geometry corrects the lateral displacement of the chassis on the curves. Compared with conventional rail systems, the running wheels and the rails are therefore ideally protected so you benefit from safe, low-wear guidance around the curves.

                • MINI-LOAD Rail-Guided Storage and Retrieval Machines: Small Loads and Great Heights

                  Automatic Small-Parts Storage and Retrieval Machines for Maximum Throughput

                  DAMBACH offers various miniload stacker cranes for the storage and transport of small load carriers. The storage of small loads up to 100 kg and an overall height of 12 m as well as loads up to 300 kg and an overall height of 27 m is possible.

                  Depending on the application, an efficient aluminum design or a robust steel construction is used. Depending on the requirements, this optimizes energy consumption and minimizes the forces occurring in the rack and rail system. The compact design results in particularly low approach dimensions, both horizontally and vertically. This makes DAMBACH small parts storage and retrieval machines suitable for perfect space utilization. Thanks to the development and production of our own load handling devices, a wide range of load carriers such as cardboard boxes, containers and trays can also be reliably stored and retrieved. Depending on the load, a combination telescopic table, box grabber or clamping gripper are available. Thanks to our own production, interfaces between the stacker crane, load handling device and load carrier can be customized. To make a technically sophisticated device perfect, it also needs the control system tailored to it. Installation space is reduced by up to approx. 60 % through decentralized controls and integrated terminal boxes. This means that more space is available for parking. With DAMBACH energy recovery, operating costs can additionally be reduced.

                  Latest Technology for Top Efficiency

                  Our 45 years of experience play their part in the design and manufacture of our MINI-LOAD rail-guided SRMs for small-parts warehouses. Besides performance, we pay special attention to stability and robustness – and hence durability and the security of your investments. A steel construction optimised for weight is used throughout, which avoids troublesome interfaces. Different drive modules are available depending on performance requirements. These are easily interchangeable and so it is possible to upgrade the performance at a later date as well.

                  • COMPACT

                  • Storage and retrieval machine for existing rack systems: COMPACT

                    Floor-level loading and unloading for optimal use of space

                    The ultra-light COMPACT storage and retrieval machine opens up flexible options for use in existing warehouses. The consistently lightweight design reduces kinematic loads on the floor panels and conserves energy. Transverse forces in the rack are also minimal. A lower approach dimension of 0 millimeters allows the use of conventional stacker racks. No storage space is lost in the lowest rack level.

                    Depending on the application, the COMPACT machines can be equipped with a variety of load handling attachments. High handling capacities and individual location access are achieved with single- or double-deep telescopic forks from DAMBACH. With the patented rotating and swiveling traverse fork, pallets can be picked up or set down at floor level to meet the needs of manual warehouse operation. The tilting device even makes it possible to transport pallets with closed bottoms.

                    The COMPACT RBG is perfectly suited for brownfield projects for automating production warehouses, transshipment warehouses or warehouses with low height. Compatibility with simple built-in racks makes it an economical alternative to narrow-aisle stackers. Thanks to its excellent driving characteristics, the storage and retrieval machine can significantly improve warehouse performance. With the new sandwich chassis, narrow-aisle stackers can still travel the rack aisles during maintenance periods. The consistently modular design and decentralized drive concept permit all storage and retrieval machines to be commissioned already at the factory before delivery with a new, optimized shipping concept. This reduces implementation times and commissioning workload to an absolute minimum and makes rapid installation during continuous operation a possibility.

                    Maximum flexibility for greater sustainability

                    Keep your feet on the ground with COMPACT, the flexible storage and retrieval machine that enables ground-level placement of the goods. You can continue using your existing rack while increasing storage density and handling capacity. Scalable warehouse performance can also be realized with a transfer bridge. This allows the COMPACT to operate in multiple aisles.

                    • MULTIFLEX System

                    • Pallet-Shuttle-System: High Throughput and Maximum Storage Density

                      The MULTIFLEX from DAMBACH sets new standards for throughput, flexibility and efficiency. It comprises three perfectly coordinated modules with seamless interfaces: the proven COMPACT SHUTTLE, the high-performance vertical conveyor LIFT and the newly developed CARRIER. In analogy to the small-part-shuttle technology, the MULTIFLEX enables multi-deep storage and highly dynamic commissioning of various types of pallets. In addition, the compact design of the DAMBACH-shuttles and vertical conveyors ensure a very high storage density.

                      With this modular structure, the MULTIFLEX is flexibly adaptable to different challenges. The fields of application for this pallet-shuttle-system are as variable as its three configurations. It is suitable, for instance for cold storage, buffer storage, dispatch warehouses, sequence storage, commissioning warehouses or supply warehouses – But also for compact warehouses with low throughput.

                      No matter how MULTIFLEX is operated, the system can also be deployed in complex building layouts. It is also ideal for upgrading the most diverse types of existing warehouses, e.g. setups using industrial trucks with low heights or warehouses with most diverse roof slopes. With this pallet-shuttle-system DAMBACH can also bring Industry 4.0 into your existing warehouse, creating an even more intelligent value chain.

                          • The New Kind of Shuttle Pallet Storage

                            The newly developed DAMBACH CARRIER sets standards when it comes to approach dimensions and performance. 45 years of experience with highly dynamic storage technology combined in one product. The CARRIER functions as a transport unit for the COMPACT SHUTTLE with or without load and can be repositioned as required with the vertical conveyor. Thanks to the innovative controls concept several COMPACT SHUTTLES can be assigned to one CARRIER at the same time – thus, ensuring scalability for every system solution even afterwards.

                            Eight running wheels ensure stable, safe transport at mechanical interfaces - therefore easily mastering aisle lengths of up to 120 m. Its lightweight design reduces energy consumption. Also all components are designed for use in cold stores as standard.

                            A new generation of high-performance power caps plus inductive energy transmission reduce the installation requirements and hence the cost of the investment.

                            There is a permanent point-to-point radio link between the CARRIER and the COMPACT SHUTTLE, to ensure maximum functional reliability. All the movements are monitored by the integral control system and compared among each other. The DAMBACH control guarantees the highest communication security, for example for emergency stop signals in case of an emergency. The disadvantage for complicated external controls and monitoring is cancelled. The deep freeze suitable touch display is arranged ergonomically and ensures easy maintenance and adjustment of the carriers.

                                    • From Telescopic Fork to Shuttle

                                      DAMBACH Lagersysteme has been developing and producing its own load handling equipment for stacker cranes and conveyor technology for over 45 years. Possible storage goods include containers, crates, cartons, trays, lattice boxes and pallets. Depending on the load carrier, various load-handling devices are used, such as telescopic forks, telescopic tables, belt conveyors, box grabbers, roller conveyors, chain conveyors and shuttle vehicles. For problematic cargo, additional lifting, pushing or tilting devices are used. The need for functional reliability and durability has always been the company's top priority. Load handling devices form the heart of its storage and retrieval machines in particular, and help to ensure the safe and precise handling of loading aids. In conveyor systems, load-handling devices are used in particular with distribution trolleys. They can also be used in combination with other conveyor technology elements (e.g. vertical conveyors or transfer units). High reliability and short transfer times are the key characteristics of all DAMBACH load-handling devices.

                                      Multi-Deep Storage

                                      The Extension Arm of the Storage and Retrieval Machine

                                      The DAMBACH COMPACT SHUTTLE for high bay warehouses, makes pallet storage and retrieval even more efficient. Used in conjunction with rail-guided storage and retrieval machines, the COMPACT SHUTTLE enables warehouse operators to achieve really compact, multi-deep pallet storage. To do this, the storage lanes are fitted with rails on which the shuttles can run. Shuttle and storage and retrieval machine (SRM) therefore form one logistical unit: the shuttle runs on the rails to the allotted storage position where it sets down or picks up a pallet, and the SRM transports the shuttle to the correct storage or retrieval point in the warehouse.

                                      Communication between the parent vehicle and the COMPACT SHUTTLE is by way of a point-to-point radio link. This link monitors itself permanently to guarantee maximum communication reliability.

                                      Especially a combination of transfer cars and COMPACT SHUTTLE can reduce the energy usage, while maintaining a high throughput capacity. This way the DAMBACH COMPACT SHUTTLE can demonstrate it´s strengths in the pallet-handling sector.

                                        • Controls for stacker cranes

                                        • Simple operation and maximum operational reliability

                                          Control systems decide how economically and reliably warehouse systems work. DAMBACH therefore combines expertise and experience with knowledge of this branch of industry and the latest technology.

                                          The result is a wide range of solutions covering all the requirements of high bay and small-parts warehouses and the apron. From simple, low-cost controls for stacker cranes or materials handling systems to standard applications for fully automatic stacker crane operations – and with energy recovery if required.

                                          The high modularity of our concepts also allows us to provide bespoke solutions that still include a high number of standard modules. So users obtain a uniform, consistent operating concept.

                                          Multi-stage control solutions: from pre-installed wiring to control hardware to integrated software.

                                          Minimum capital outlay
                                          Maximum security for your warehouse investments

                                          Our control modules for rail-guided stacker cranes and materials handling elements are based on SIMATIC-S7 or Allen-Bradley control systems. The universal use of fieldbus solutions on the sensor/actuator level reduces installation costs to a minimum, avoids sources of errors and permits cost-effective expansion at a later date. Decentralised technology makes the systems scalable and permits reliable, continuous use even under the toughest operating conditions. The coupling to a master computer is achieved either via a standardised communications interface or via flexible, programmable interfaces in the materials-flow computer which, for example, also permits a direct link between warehouse system and SAP.

                                          The visualisation systems include comprehensive logging and statistics functions. All packages offer the option of remote diagnosis and permit remote access for rectifying problems – to relieve operating personnel yet further.

                                            • Higher throughput for your warehouse

                                              The DAMBACH material flow system (MFS) enables easy connection of automated storage and retrieval systems as well as conveyor systems to ERP and warehouse management systems (WMS). The software package named MFS-BASIC is distinguished by the variable transport control of storage and retrieval machines, pallet-shuttle-systems, conveyor technology and rail guided vehicle systems. Flexible route strategies enable utilization-dependent regulation of material flows. Whether management of top performance in large floor conveyor systems with switches or optimized buffer space management in conveyor technology systems. The powerful MFS from DAMBACH fulfills many requirements.

                                              Depending on the functional scope of the customer's warehouse management system (WMS), DAMBACH offers the option of an expanded material flow system named the MFS-PLUS. This allows for simplified inventory management and storage strategy - such as sorting, compacting or repositioning are also part of the expanded software solution.

                                              The uniform user interface across all software levels also aids in commissioning, maintenance and during operations. On request, customer-specific CI requirements are displayed in the user interface. DAMBACH visualization is a high-performance, flexible platform for capturing, analyzing and visualizing data from the storage and retrieval machines. For demanding solutions on mobile or integrated display panels. Industrial user functions with intuitive design, management of messages, logging of important process and configuration data, and continuous user management provide for visualization. Thanks to the structured applications, all system information is provided in a transparent manner.

                                              Standardized interfaces to the lower-level DAMBACH storage and conveyor control (PLC) additionally reduce installation time and thus expense.

                                                • Modernisation

                                                • Modernisation: optimising existing warehouses and plants

                                                  Flexible responses to suit different life cycles

                                                  Even a warehouse system can become out of date. Or changing boundary conditions could make it necessary to modify or optimise a warehouse or add new functions. And the individual components of a warehouse system have different “lifetime expectancies”. Whereas the mechanical components might remain in use for 20 years or more, the efficiency of a control system could need upgrading after just 10 years or even earlier. In other words, some components in a warehouse age faster, thus constituting a risk and curbing progress.

                                                  DAMBACH has been established in the warehouse systems market for 40 years. The fact that the market is constantly changing and suppliers come and go is therefore irrelevant. Because our efficient modernisation concepts can also optimise installations when their manufacturers have gone out of business or no longer provide support for warehousing technology. This is where DAMBACH can exploit design and production synergies and offer convincing concepts for all modernisation projects.
