For storage and retrieval machines acceleration, speed and delivery time take more and more on greater significance. For this, GEBHARDT is setting new standards. “Who is faster?” That was the target of the GEBHARDT engineers in developing the new miniload type “CHEETAH®”. “CHEETAH®” – as the name implies – is extremely fast and very lightweight thanks to innovative materials. The Cheetah storage and retrieval machine (ASRS) with its innovative construction approach represents dynamics and efficiency in automatic small-parts storage. The Cheetah ASRS is constructed of various materials, intigrating cutting edge fibre-composites. The bonded framework structure has been comprehensively tested for the stress and service life of a small parts ASRS crane. The rigid framework structure allows for shorter stabilisation times during operation.
