Dematic’s RapidStore ML is a miniload automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) that handles totes and cartons. It is a high density, compact load staging and sequencing system for reserve storage, goods-to-person order fulfillment, automatic pick face replenishment, palletizing, and order consolidation applications. For the production environment, it is suitable for kitting, work-in-process buffers and materials storage applications. The all aluminum, lightweight mast construction combined with advanced horizontal/vertical belt drives, or optional wheel drive, allows high acceleration/deceleration, and high velocity transport speeds. In a typical application, this allows the system to support higher throughput rates than previous versions of miniload ASRS.
