The MIAS Miniload telescopic fork is the ideal load handling attachment for the single-deep storage of containers of the same size in single-space or multi-space shelves.
The optimized overall size enables a low shelf width and a very small distance between the shelves.
The double-deep MIAS Miniload telescopic fork is particularly well suited to double-deep storage of containers in small components warehouses with narrow aisle clearance.
Operation: Three extending components enable a container to be placed either single-deep or double-deep in the storage compartment.
Due to the low cross-section height, a minimum distance between the containers in the shelves, and therefore a maximum number of containers in the warehouse, is achieved.
Telescopic forks with lateral belt conveyor can be used to store and retrieve containers and cartons up to a maximum weight of 100 kg, up to five levels deep, in shelf compartments.
Our positive-locking drive concept enables high dynamic values to be achieved.
The telescopic fork can also be used in combination with a laterally mounted belt conveyor to create driven conveyor systems at the storage and retrieval location.
Exact positioning of the load is ensured by the alignment and centering of the load via flaps on the load handling device.
These combined telescopic forks can be used to store and retrieve containers weighing up to 140 kg, single-deep or double-deep, in shelf compartments. Our positive-locking drive concept enables high dynamic values to be achieved.
The telescopic fork can also be used in combination with a belt conveyor to create driven conveyance systems at the storage and retrieval location. Finally, the additional load capacity on the double-deep version ensures the exact positioning and alignment of the load.
Cartons pose particular challenges when it comes to automatic load handling: from highly diverse conditions and sizes to practically undefinable tolerances. But here too, MIAS has a solution!
With the Viper X series you have a firm grip on every type of carton. Thanks to the individually configurable number of gripper fingers, up to four loads can be stored one behind the other in a single storage compartment.
