The Digital Assorting System (DAS) is a manual sorting system that applies pick-to-light systems to sorting operations. An operator places goods on shelves or at an assortment location, following the instructions on a digital display. The system is suitable for sorting batch-picked products by destination and for transit operation in which incoming products are sorted and shipped immediately. It is often used for perishable items.
From fully automated picking by robots to efficient manual picking using indicators, we offer picking, palletizing, and depalletizing solutions that are best suited to the logistics characteristics of each customer.Pick-to-Light System
The digital picking system is a piece-picking system in which products are picked according to the instructions on the digital display attached to the shelf. The system can be built for a wide range of applications, from low-mix high-volume to high-mix low-volume. Since the scope of the worker's responsibility is clear, and the instructions and quantity of products are displayed, work efficiency can be improved and picking errors can be greatly reduced compared to the paper list method.
The digital display can be mounted on a variety of racks, making it easy to build a digital picking system to suit the type of cargo and application. The system is also used in combination with automated warehouses for storage and picking systems. We have a wealth of experience in order picking of food and daily necessities in wholesale, e-commerce and retail industries.
Daifuku's heavy-duty aisle-opening pallet racking, Mobile Rack, is suitable for pallet storage simplifying location control and expediting forklift input/output operation. With its smooth dolly movement, user-friendly interface, and several safety devices, Daifuku's Mobile Rack has a great reputation in the material handling industry.Features
The mobile pallet racking system consists of two fixed racks at either end of the system, with racks on dollies in-between. Compared to conventional fixed racks that require aisle space every two rows, the mobile rack needs only 1 aisle space per system since dollies slide to open an aisle where needed. This system reduces the storage rack footprint by 50%.
Daifuku provides cleanroom AMHSs (automated material handling systems) that automate semiconductor and flat panel production to users across the globe. Thanks to the incredible technical prowess that puts Daifuku at the forefront of the industry, AMHSs produce minimal amounts of dirt, keep vibration levels low, and ensure top-notch reliability to facilitate operations at cutting-edge semiconductor and flat panel plants. In recent years, unique technologies like nitrogen purging and air flotation have allowed manufacturers to miniaturize their semiconductors and give their flat panels even sharper image quality, enhancing the production of the world’s most advanced digital products.
Daifuku's array of semiconductor solutions includes dependable storage and transport systems for keeping production lines continually running; nitrogen purge storage systems, which accommodate the increase in semiconductor miniaturization needs; and resources for maximizing utilization rates at production facilities.
The Flexible Drive System transports loaded carriers and trolleys by providing driving force through friction. The force is generated when the driving wheel powered by the motor presses against the sides of the trolleys or load bars.
As the word “flexible” suggests, the system is characterized by how it can be used in many different line configurations.
Ramrun is a conveyance system where the carriers themselves are equipped with motors and wheels, allowing each to move on its own.
It is characterized by its ability to travel at variable speeds and stop at precise positions. Also, it does not require chains or lubricant due to its urethane wheels. Lifting and transferring equipment can be added to the carriers to cater to specific applications and conditions.
The Power and Free Conveyor is a chain conveyor system that transports loads along a set path and is able to stop at predetermined positions. It is a highly flexible system that can convey loads at speeds suited for various processes, including painting, assembly, branching, storage, and final assembly. The basic structure consists of (1) a power line that drives the X-type forged chain, and (2) a free line that supports the trolleys and carriers, which moves via stationary pushers mounted on the X-type chain.
We provide a wide variety of transfer and lifting equipment to match your conveyor system, with options based on conveyor type and items to be conveyed.
In 1957, Daifuku supplied Japan’s first chain conveyor for car body transport to an automobile plant. Since then, we have achieved many results in almost all processes of automobile production. In addition to innovative conveyor systems, we have provided various solutions for improving productivity of parts handling in and parts supply to the line side of main assembly lines. However, traditional systems for the reception and storage of parts from suppliers and timely retrieval according to production schedules often required manual labor. To improve said process, we developed and launched the SPDR (pronounced spider), a temporary storage and sortation system for parts, in December 2014.
Daifuku Airport Technologies is a trusted partner of airports and airlines globally, providing end-to-end solutions. We provide Baggage Handling Systems, Operations & Maintenance, Passenger Screening Lanes, and Airport Operation Systems.

In urban area where land space is limited, the needs for having nearby columbaria instead of having tombs in far-distant cemetery gardens is increasing. Daifuku's automated columbarium uses vertical space efficiently to provide adequate rooms for urns as well as rooms for prayers within a limited land space of urban area.
Indoor prayer rooms always provide comfortable praying environment to visitors and allow them to pay their respects to the deceased regardless of the weather outside. Besides, the indoor barrier-free worship area provides smooth access to elderly people and visitors with wheelchairs comparing to outdoor grave.
Stacker cranes, the core of automated columbarium system, are backed up with Daifuku's technology and know-how accumulated though 80+ years experience in the material handling industry.
