ProMat Preview: Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems

Daifuku Webb Holding Company, which consists of Jervis B. Webb Company and Daifuku Daifuku Webb Holding CompanyAmerica Corporation, will feature a live demonstration of its DUOSYS Automated Storage & Retrieval System (AS/RS).  This mini load AS/RS can act as a sortation system, buffering and sequencing items.  Speed is ensured by two cranes functioning simultaneously in the same aisle to maximize throughput.  The cranes operate independently, passing each other without interference to reach every rack position.  Multiple cranes are managed by a single off-board controller.  The DUOSYS remains in operation while maintenance is being performed on individual cranes.  Multiple systems can be stacked on top of each other, providing scalability.
