Dematic  introduces the RapidStore UL, a new class of Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) designed for fast, safe and efficient handling of unit loads.
Available in a range of sizes and speeds to precisely match storage and handling requirements, RapidStore UL systems deliver an excellent combination of quality, impressive performance and unbeatable value.
The fully automated RapidStore UL system is ideal for bulk reserve storage in fast moving pallet and unit load handling operations, and can be tailored to the user’s precise storage and handling requirements in both new and existing facilities. Dematic RapidStore UL provides safe, accurate and accelerated handling in a compact area for applications ranging from putting away pallet load deliveries in a retail warehouse to storing new unit loads straight off the end of a production line.
Featuring a much smaller building footprint vis-à-vis conventional storage systems and materials handling equipment to house the same number of pallets or unit loads, RapidStore UL helps to substantially reduce associated land, building and/or leasing costs.
Key benefits of Dematic RapidStore UL system:

  • Offers faster cycle times than manually operated narrow aisle forklifts
  • Ability to run 24/7 greatly reduces labour and operating costs, providing excellent ROI
  • Can economically handle loads up to 1,800kg in aisles only 200mm wider than the load
  • Systems can be up to 46m high with throughput rates of up to 60 double cycles per hour
  • Compact building footprint
