GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN - July 15, 2016 — Dematic, a leading global supplier of integrated automated technology, software and services to optimize the supply chain, has introduced a new version of RapidStore UL1400, a storage and retrieval system that automates conventional pallet storage. The new RapidStore UL1400 includes performance optimizing software and supports a wider variety of applications, including freezer/cooler environments.
Dematic RapidStore UL1400 is an alternative automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) that is designed to retrofit into existing manual warehouses with low to medium building heights. It is engineered to accommodate facilities normally serviced by manual material handling equipment such as very narrow-aisle (VNA), operator-up, swing-reach fork trucks. The RapidStore UL1400 is a direct replacement for such operator-intensive applications.
The RapidStore UL1400, with a corresponding rack structure, is a compact, space-efficient unit-load storage and staging solution. It is an automated system that provides high-density product storage in a controlled and secure environment. The storage/retrieval machine rides on a floor rail and is stabilized overhead with a steel guide tube. It is configured with a rotating fork load handling device.
RapidStore UL1400 has effectively combined traditional AS/RS with conventional post-and-beam rack and offers a low first-shelf height (8 inches) to maximize warehouse space.
