The design and engineering of every Automha system responds directly to the real needs of today’s warehouse, materials management, distribution and fulfillment business functions. Our equipment is outstanding because we have an unparalleled understanding of those practical needs: we grew up in warehouses, and our automation solutions reflect that practical understanding of the hard, practical business requirements our customers have to meet.
Automha’s heavy Miniload warehouses reflect that detailed understanding of our customers’ business and working requirements. Miniload systems are automatic storage systems specifically developed to manage containers or trays, used in all needs characterized by high flows of goods with heavy weights.
The storage system comprises a central corridor along which a stacker crane runs, and two shelving racks located on both sides for the arrangement of boxes or trays. At the side are one or more automation areas, on which the stacker crane deposits the load extracted from the racks. Conveyors bring the load unit to the operator and, once picking has been completed, return it to the stacker crane for allocation on the racks, at maximum speed and with full computerized management.
The entire system is coordinated by Automha management software (AWM ), which records the movements and positions of the load units in the warehouse and manages operating flows.
The reliability and accelerations of the Miniload stacker cranes, together with the modular nature of the shelving racks and functionality of the interface software, make these systems both highly productive and efficient.
