Watch SSI SCHAEFER Mini Load Systems in action!

With SSI SCHAEFER Miniload Crane (SMC), we completely cover rack automation for totes, cartons, and trays and presents the ideal solution for maximum use of vertical storage while using very little floor space. Since there are a variety of load handling devices to choose from, there are almost no restrictions to the form and surface of the items to be stored or buffered.

The sophisticated construction of the SMC is geared toward maximum value for the customer. The continuous use of premium steel guarantees high durability and contingency reserves with concurrently low costs. Due to the diagonal bracing of the mast, a lower weight, higher dynamic and a higher throughput is also achieved. The design is unique and significant. The traveling unit with steel-rail and the Omega-drive is entirely designed for high availability and low wear.

The Green Energy-Efficient SSI SCHAEFER Mini Load Crane

KERS System

SSI SCHAEFER Mini Load Cranes incorporate the latest innovations in energy efficient technology. The Kinetic Energy Recovery System feeds some of the energy dissipated during the braking process of the crane back into the grid.

The software control adjusts the crane acceleration and speed required to meet the throughput and material flow demand. This process reduces energy consumption and materials stress, decreasing abrasion and extending the life of all the components.

Innovative Design

Direct current power pool of drive controls and energy-optimized overlapping of movements in order to transfer brake-energy of one drive into drive-energy for the other. Accompanying balance weights for the lift reduce the use of energy up to 25%.

Perfect Solution for:

  • Optimizing the storage volume
  • Enhanced stock accuracy and optimization
  • Adapting to your individual storage strategy
  • Secure storage of sensitive or valuable goods
  • High availability
  • Short order flow times
  • Flexible adaptations to modified logistics paramenters and processes
  • Relieving employees from physically demanding tasks
  • High work safety
  • Reduced personnel costs

The sophisticated construction of the SMC is designed for maximum customer convenience. The consistent application of high-quality steel guarantees high durability and safety while incurring only minimal costs.
