Daifuku has announced its new Synchronized AS/RS. This automated storage and retrieval system has two cranes per aisle instead of the usual one crane. Company spokesmen say this allows the system to perform three times faster than a dual fork, mini-load system with an output of up to 800 cases an hour. In addition, the two cranes can work together to pick up larger loads, with each crane grabbing the load at each end. This provides flexibility that is rather unique to such storage systems.
