By ·

Murata Machinery USA (Booth 435) launched a new high-performance automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) to North America at a press conference on Monday. The system is capable of handling 3,000 cases per hour through rapid and continuous storage and retrieval.

“We introduced the Uni-Shuttle HP in Japan last September to provide best-in-class performance for niche, high-throughput applications in retail, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries and for just-in-time, just-in-sequence manufacturing operations,” said Todd Jedelsky, regional sales manager.

The AS/RS combines a multi-level storage rack system with shuttles running independently on each level at speeds of up to 1,312 feet per minute. A movable storage rack allows for the storage of loads of various sizes, shapes or types and accommodates the automatic sequencing of loads prior to or during retrieval, which makes it ideal for just-in-time retrieval.

ProMat 2011 will be held March 21 - 24, 2011 at McCormick Place South in Chicago. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry.
