GEBHARDT developed the Cheetah eco as part of a cooperation project with the Department of Engineering in mechanical Engineering (Konstruktion im Maschinen- und Anlagenbau - KIMA) at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern. Based on the Cheetah speed model, the Cheetah eco is radically lightweight while maintaining high structural integrity. The on-board Omega drive ensures a low-maintenance operation. The goal of the collaboration was an ASRS, which requires reduced investment and operating costs, and at the same time a high throughput – Provide availability and optimum space utilization.
Durable and energy efficient
Since it was not possible with previously used technologies and materials to bring all These requirements into one solution, new answers had to be found. Using advanced simulation software and innovative materials, the Cheetah eco ASRS was created. The special feature of this pioneering storage and retrieval system is that despite significantly reduced weight, the pendulum of the mast was not increased.
