Press release date: February 5, 2013

Murata Machinery USA, Inc. announced the North American launch of their New Uni-SHUTTLE HP automated storage and retrieval system.

The Uni-SHUTTLE HP is a high performance automated storage/retrieval system designed to provide best-in-class capacity and performance through a combination of flexible storage functions, high capacity transport and sorting capabilities.

Uni-SHUTTLE HP is a new solution that pursues “maximum logistics throughput” in terms of both productivity and quality.
• 3,000 cases/hour through rapid continuous storage and retrieval
• 400m/min shuttle travel speeds running independently on each level
• Highly efficient and flexible system configurations
• Ability to handle a variety of load sizes, shapes or types
• Automatic sequencing of loads prior to or during retrieval
• Just-in-time continuous retrieval

The requirements for handling loads of various sizes, the need for high-throughput operations, and the demand for small-lot production for just-in-time operations and same-day delivery drive the need for new technology.  Retaining operators in this difficult era of recruiting workers also demands new ideas in automation.  Uni-SHUTTLE HP is the solution to these challenges.
