automatic storage

By means of an automatic stacker crane full pallets or other material is stored in a warehouse. The stacker crane automatically places and retrieves loads from defined storage locations. It is typically used where there is a high volume of loads to be stored and where there is a high volume of loads moved in and out of the storage. There can be several isles where a stacker crane is mounted. In most cases stacker cranes are equipped with telescopic forks. In this way the crane can drop and take the loads on both sides in the rack.
There are different types of stacker cranes according to the product to be handled. A miniload stacker crane is used for low weights and is running at high speeds in the aisle. Stacker cranes for heavy loads, like pallets, have a single or double mast.
