Since 1937, Daifuku has focused on material handling – the movement of finished goods and work in progress. Our world-class systems lead the industry by combining conveying, storage, sorting, picking and controls. Our products serve customers in a range of industries and countries.
We have refined our expertise not only as a manufacturer but also as a system integrator, so that we can provide precise solutions to the challenges faced by customers across a variety of industries. We have also established a consistent support system ranging from consulting to after-sales service.
2. Advanced control system
Daifuku’s local intelligent network control system offers a comprehensive solution: from front-end controls to full-scale inventory management computer systems. Our software provides full control of shuttle-rack machines and load-handling systems. The software monitors the system in real time to assist with trouble and control auxiliary equipment (such as quantity indicator displays for order picking).
3. Simple operation & maintenance
End-of-aisle controllers allow operators to easily manage loads without entering machine aisles. The power supply and other major components are readily accessible for quick and easy maintenance.
4. Improved operation efficiency
The high-speed S/R machine automatically stores and retrieves loads quickly and efficiently. Not only does this dramatically reduce cycle time, but it also reduces the number of forklifts and forklift traffic. Daifuku S/R machines reduce energy costs by using low electricity and regenerating power.
2. High-rise, high-density storage
Mini-load ASRS 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 uses aluminum masts and urethane wheels to achieve stable and quiet movement, even at high speeds. Our low-noise mini-load systems can be installed virtually anywhere, including next to offices or on upper floors in buildings.
4. Improved operating efficiency
The high-speed S/R machine 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 systems are also perfect for sequencing items prior to sorting, improving the efficiency of later handling processes.
5. Reduced energy consumption
The latest mini-load ASRS model is 15% more lightweight than the previous model.
The motor was also made smaller, reducing electricity consumption.
