Dematic has released a new automated tool for cold chain order fulfilment.
Proper handling of refrigerated and frozen goods is one of the most challenging tasks in order fulfilment. The addition of the Multishuttle 2 Freezer completes the line of equipment for the cold chain market.
“Our focus continues to be on reducing operating costs for customers,” said solutions development manager at Dematic Darren Rawlinson. “The grocery and food production industries are especially competitive and automation can create an advantage.”
The Multishuttle 2 Freezer application is said to offer a high-density, low energy-cost product designed specifically to meet cold chain requirements.
Specific benefits of the Multishuttle 2 Freezer are said to include:
- Reduced energy use and refrigeration costs.
- Decreased labour requirements.
- Improved product handling and FIFO rotation.
- Increased inventory accuracy and full shipment traceability.
The Multishuttle is an automated storage buffer for cartons, totes, trays, containers and individual bundles. All variations of the Multishuttle (static and flex) can now operate at temperatures as low as -30°C, which offers grocers and food manufacturers a full range of energy efficient, high-density and high-throughput storage equipment for ambient, refrigerated and freezer environments.
