Lewiston, Maine – Diamond Phoenix today announced the addition of aisle-based storage and retrieval machines and pallet conveyor systems to its line of material handling products. This expansion, on the heels of the company’s release of its heavy-duty carousels and vertical lift modules, is part of a continuing effort to offer clients a complete suite of material handling technologies. The Vectura Storage and Retrieval Machine (SRM) is based on a flexible, modular design that is configurable to almost any application. The single and double masted cranes have the ability to handle single, double, triple, or multi-deep storage, one or multiple loads at a time, and several types of products, such as pallets or paper reels. In addition, numerous system options are available, including one or multiple cranes per aisle, aisle transfer, tailored load handling, cold storage, and various input/output alternatives. The company’s full range of pallet conveyor systems are also based on a modular design, taking advantage of the benefits of economy in manufacturing and simplicity of installation. The company is now able to fulfill all of a client’s conveying and handling requirements, including powered roller and chain conveyor, shuttle cars, pallet dispensers, turntables, profile gauges and vertical conveyors.
