Daifuku’s Duosys automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) is configured as a high-throughput mini load that sorts and groups totes or cases.

It features two storage retrieval machines (SRM) functioning in the same aisle. The SRMs work side by side and move past each other without interference to perform storage and retrieval operations. A Duosys is laid out in two levels (with two SRMs operating within each level) so that four SRMs operate simultaneously on the same rack to produce a maximum throughput of up to 2,200 cases per hour. Throughput will vary depending upon system configuration to meet specific customer requirements. Each SRM has a maximum horizontal speed of 300m/min and a maximum vertical speed of 40 m/min.
