Dematic is pushing hard on the warehouse efficiency front, highlighting its automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS) for pallets.

Aimed at fast moving consumer goods and beverage manufacturers handling high volumes of palletised stock, the integrated RapidStore Pallet ASRS promised to optimise storage space efficiency.

"Dematic’s RapidStore crane provides significantly faster cycle times than manually operated forklifts and, with the ability to operate 24/7 with minimal downtime, it greatly reduces labour and operating costs, and provide an excellent return on investment," the company says.

Dematic states that the RapidStore UL1200 crane has a lightweight single mast, operating speeds of up to 4m a second and can handle pallets of up to 1,200 kg to 30m high, in aisles 200 mm wider than the load.
