WITH retailers streamlining their supply
chains in recent years, fast moving consumer
goods (FMCG), food and beverage manu-
facturers increasingly need to carry higher
volumes of stock to meet demanding
Optimising storage space efficiency has
suddenly become a significant challenge
for many, and equipment manufacturers are
responding to the growing challenge.
Dematic has developed a new, pallet auto-
mated storage and retrieval system (ASRS)
specifically for FMCG and food and beverage
manufacturers handling high volumes of
The fully integrated RapidStore Pallet
ASRS provides fast, safe, cost-efficient pallet
handling, providing users with a combination
of quality, performance and value.
Dematic’s RapidStore crane is claimed to
provide significantly faster cycle times than
manually operated forklifts and, with the ability
to operate 24/7 with minimal downtime, it is
said to greatly reduce labour and operating
costs. Compared to conventional storage
systems and materials handling equipment,
this pallet ASRS also requires a much smaller
building footprint to house the same number of
pallets, substantially reducing associated land,
building and/or leasing costs.
Ideal for bulk reserve storage in fast-mov-
ing pallet handling operations, the Pallet ASRS
solution can be tailored to the user’s precise
storage and handling requirements - both now
and in the future.
Whether it’s putting away pallets of goods
from suppliers or storing new pallets straight
off the end of a production line, the RapidStore
UL1200 crane provides accurate and accel-
erated handling in a compact area. With a
lightweight single mast and fast operating
speeds of up to 4m/s, RapidStore provides safe
and efficient high-speed handling of pallets
weighing up to 1,200 kg to 30 m high, in aisles
only 200 mm wider than the load.
The storage system’s Colby racking and
RapidStore cranes are professionally integrated
to ensure safe, reliable, error-free operation.
The configuration ensures material flow
is closely managed, eliminating bottlenecks
in a range of staging, buffering, loading
and unloading applications, optimising
The supplier’s Location Control Software
(LCS) interfaces with the user’s WMS or ERP,
providing full system accountability and a high
degree of management control. Integrated
IT systems provide precise machine control
and real-time visualisation capability, with a
user-friendly interface displaying operating
status and full service diagnostics.
