Vanderlande’s new energy efficient QUICKSTORE MINILOAD is the latest warehouse solution to appeal to warehouse operations seeking to increase their speed, efficiency and commitment to sustainability.
The crane and rail system, which has been built with sustainability in mind, automatically stores and retrieves cartons, trays and totes. This system is ideal for businesses needing to store incoming goods before they are moved into the general logistics system. Thanks to its height of up to 24 metres, floor space is utilised in an optimal way.
QUICKSTORE MINILOAD is equipped with a number of energy saving measures as standard. An energy regeneration system allows the braking energy of one motor to be immediately transferred to another. In addition, order intake speed control software helps to slow down the system’s operation during quieter periods. Thanks to state of the art algorithms this software is capable of optimising and minimising movements made by the system.
An Energy Storage Unit can also be added on to the standard package. This innovation will allow warehouses to reduce overall energy use by up to 36%. Additionally, a system installed with this unit requires less power infrastructure, such as cables and transformers.
“Our team of experts is eager to hear about the specific challenges companies face in their warehouses and be able to provide feedback on the best solutions to meet their needs,” comments Terry Verkuijlen, executive vice-president warehouse solutions at Vanderlande.
