Product Portfolio
  • Rail-guided stacker cranes

  • The wide range of products guarantees you the necessary throughput with optimum space utilisation whether using aisle-bound or curve-going rail-guided stacker cranes. If required, subsequent performance upgrades are even possible with the models of the MODUL series – straight out of the box, so to speak. Such upgrades can be achieved by retrofitting additional drives, for example. Single-wheel, twin-wheel or a third drive unit plus toothed rack mechanisms are available. That results in graduated, application-based stacker crane upgrades.

    Rail-guided stacker cranes play a key role when it comes to efficiency and performance in high bay or small-parts warehouses. Therefore, in order to meet the highest demands, stacker cranes must be reliable, long-lasting, fast, precise, safe and energy-efficient. But more than that, stacker cranes from DAMBACH are the convincing answer because of their flexibility right across virtually all storage systems. Together with load-handling equipment developed and produced by us, our rail-guided stacker cranes become the key element in automated storage and retrieval.
      • MONO

      • Aisle-bound rail-guided stacker cranes: MONO series.
        Optimum design for excellent aisle utilisation.
        The aisle-bound MONO series has proved a favourite with customers because of its optimum use of space. Minimum approach dimensions at the end of the aisle and at the top and bottom of the travel plus no-buffers end-of-aisle protection permit full exploitation of the storage space. And then there’s the speed factor as well: good travelling speed and acceleration figures ensure efficient storage and retrieval, also during peak times.
        Depending on the specification, MONO cranes can be fitted with one, two or three drives. Here, too, the modular construction enables good flexibility and easy adaptation to individual requirements.

        Smooth efficiency.
        The drive unit heads are adjustable and thus permit infinite correction of the mast angle. Load cycle deformations can therefore be compensated for safely and effectively, which guarantees outstanding accuracy even after many operating hours. The low-vibration, rigid mast construction minimises the damping times between individual movements. Even long-reach models thus achieve high speeds and good acceleration.
        • Aisle-bound design saves space and guarantees high speeds
        • No-buffers end-of-aisle protection
        • Minimum approach dimensions at the top and bottom of the travel
        • Single- or twin-mast versions
        • Overall heights up to 45 m
        • Lifting capacities up to 4000 kg
        • MULTI

        • From aisle to aisle: the MULTI series.
          Effortless access to every storage aisle.
          The rail-guided stacker cranes of the MULTI series are curve-going models and can reach every storage aisle effortlessly via special rails and points – directly and without the need for a costly mechanical traverser. So operations are not interrupted. This clever solution for changing aisles improves access times considerably in any warehouse systems.

          Every MULTI crane can serve several storage aisles. That reduces the number of cranes and assures optimum utilisation, which helps warehouses to operate efficiently and cost-effectively.

          Intelligent systems ensure availability and long service lives.
          Intelligent controls coordinate the combined operation of the individual stacker cranes. When several cranes are in use, the operating strategy can be preset via parameters. That guarantees high availability through variable aisle allocation. And in the case of malfunctions, one unit can take over the tasks of another. A further increase in performance is possible at any time by adding more stacker cranes. The stacker cranes of the MULTI series also set standards when it comes to wear as the patented rail geometry corrects the lateral displacement of the chassis on the curves. Compared with conventional rail systems, the running wheels and the rails are therefore ideally protected so you benefit from safe, low-wear guidance around the curves.

          • MINI-LOAD

          • MINI-LOAD rail-guided stacker cranes: small loads and great heights
            Automatic small-parts stacker cranes for maximum throughput

            The MINI-LOAD series takes small-parts storage to previously unknown heights. Storage heights of up to 27 m can be reached without a drop in performance. Our units can work in automated small-parts warehouses handling containers or boxes equally well.


            A very diverse range of load-handling equipment is available to suit the goods to be stored and the performance targets. Telescopic forks are adequate for single-deep storage, but combination telescopic forks or grabs are necessary for double-deep storage or to boost the performance of transfer operations on the apron.

            Latest technology for top efficiency
            Our 40 years of experience play their part in the design and manufacture of our MINI-LOAD rail-guided stacker cranes for small-parts warehouses. Besides performance, we pay special attention to stability and robustness – and hence durability and the security of your investments. A steel construction optimised for weight is used throughout, which avoids troublesome interfaces. Different drive modules are available depending on performance requirements. These are easily interchangeable and so it is possible to upgrade the performance at a later date as well.

            • Meet high demands in distribution and production
              With its diverse range of components, DAMBACH pallet-handling technology ensures perfectly coordinated interfaces between rail-guided stacker cranes and materials handling systems.

              The variable range guarantees fast and effective materials flows from storage zone to apron. Roller and chain conveyors, corner transfer units, turntables, vertical conveyors and traversers ensure the safe transport of standard and mesh pallets.


              Our intelligent modular system enables not only smooth transport of virtually any type of unit load, but also guarantees ease of servicing through the many identical parts and standard modules. Therefore, stocking of spare parts is also easier. And the factory-installed wiring is especially cost-effective.
                • Conveyors

                • Roller conveyors
                  DAMBACH roller conveyors consist of a stable frame with rollers bolted in place. The rollers are driven by an easily serviced tangential chain drive with tensioning unit housed in a drive enclosure. The entire drivetrain is enclosed for safety and to prevent tampering. Flanged wheels rotate with the rollers to help transport goods carefully. The frame is height-adjustable.

                  Chain conveyors

                  DAMBACH chain conveyors consist of self-supporting chain strands mounted on a rigid frame. The number of strands can be varied to suit the application. Duplex chains with straight side plates guarantee careful transport of your goods on an optimised support surface. Chains are supported on low-friction slide rails and can be individually tensioned. All chain strands are driven via a common driveshaft fully enclosed for safety. The mounting frames bolted to the main frames are height-adjustable.
                  • High throughput rates
                  • Speeds of up to 0.5 m/s, acceleration of up to 0.8 m/s²

                  • Logic elements and frequency controllers integrated into drives
                  • Nodes – Materials-handling systems

                  • Lift table
                    with roller or chain conveyor

                    DAMBACH lift tables are efficient transfer units for mergers, crossings or branches in flows of materials. Roller or chain conveyors can be integrated as required. The interlocking lift mechanism combined with a rigid frame protects the unit loads and ensures optimum availability. As an option, variable intermediate lift positions can be included to ensure greater flexibility. The compact dimensions and safety guards expand the range of applications.

                    Turntable
                    with roller or chain conveyor

                    Turntables can divide or merge flows of materials without changing the orientation of the unit loads. The highly dynamic turntable drives from DAMBACH are interlocking units and ensure precise rotational angles of up to 270° with any number of intermediate stops. For optimum occupational safety, our turntables can be fully enclosed. In addition, the innovative modular design guarantees numerous and diverse applications and ease of servicing at the same time.
                    • Designed for high throughputs

                    • Logic elements and frequency controllers integrated into drives
                    • Vertical conveyors

                    • Vertical conveyors – Material-handling systems
                      Roller- or chain conveyors
                      These conveyors transport unit loads to higher or lower levels. Their compact design enables a low load transfer level. With our modular system, we can supply different frame arrangements to suit different applications. The stable columns can be fully enclosed if required. Either one or two load-handling elements can be used simultaneously to convey goods. With roller or chain conveyors depending on requirements.
                      • Low load transfer height
                      • Fully enclosed option
                      • With one or two load-handling elements
                      • Variable frame arrangement
                      • Transfer wagon

                      • The transfer car is based on the innovative DAMBACH Shuttle technology, using power caps for energy storage – making bus bars unnecessary. However, if required a traditional energy supply via bus bar or cable chain is possible. The transfer car can be equipped with up to two load handling devices or with roller or chain conveyors.
                        • Good throughput rates
                        • Low height
                        • Low installation requirements
                        • With one or two load-handling units
                        • Compact shuttle

                        • Multi-deep storage:
                          The extension arm of the rail-guided stacker crane
                          The DAMBACH Compact Shuttle for high bay warehouses, makes pallet storage and retrieval even more efficient. Used in conjunction with rail-guided stacker cranes, the Compact Shuttle enables warehouse operators to achieve really compact, multi-deep pallet storage. To do this, the storage lanes are fitted with rails on which the shuttles can run. Shuttle and stacker crane therefore form one logistical unit: the shuttle runs on the rails to the allotted storage position where it sets down or picks up a pallet, and the stacker crane transports the shuttle to the correct storage or retrieval point in the warehouse.

                          Communication between the parent vehicle and the Compact Shuttle is by way of a point-to-point radio link. This link monitors itself permanently to guarantee maximum communication reliability.

                          Especially a combination of transfer cars and Compact Shuttle can reduce the energy usage, while maintaining a high throughput capacity. This way the DAMBACH Compact Shuttle can demonstrate it´s strengths in the pallet-handling sector.

                          Fast, flexible, reliable
                          Unique among pallet shuttles
                          Instead of conventional batteries, the DAMBACH Compact Shuttle is powered by power caps. Recharging of these power caps can take as little as 8 seconds while the shuttle is being transported by the rail-guided stacker crane. That means uninterrupted 24-hour operation. All DAMBACH Compact Shuttles are fitted with especially powerful but compact 400 V three-phase motors that handle all travelling and raising/lowering functions. With its powerful motor and power caps, the DAMBACH Compact Shuttle reaches a loading capacity far in excess of that of similar shuttles. Up to 1500 kg can be quickly and reliably transferred and transported. And the Compact Shuttle also sets the pace in terms of raising/lowering speed: it needs only 2 seconds for loading or unloading!
                          • Energy stored in powerful power caps
                          • Recharging time: just 12 seconds
                          • Wireless communication with the rail-guided stacker crane

                          • Inovation 4.0:
                            The new way of material flow
                              • Controls for stacker cranes

                              • DAMBACH controls
                                simple operation and maximum operational reliability

                                Control systems decide how economically and reliably warehouse systems work. DAMBACH therefore combines expertise and experience with knowledge of this branch of industry and the latest technology.

                                The result is a wide range of solutions covering all the requirements of high bay and small-parts warehouses and the apron. From simple, low-cost controls for stacker cranes or materials handling systems to standard applications for fully automatic stacker crane operations – and with energy recovery if required.

                                The high modularity of our concepts also allows us to provide bespoke solutions that still include a high number of standard modules. So users obtain a uniform, consistent operating concept.

                                Multi-stage control solutions: from pre-installed wiring to control hardware to integrated software.

                                Minimum capital outlay
                                Maximum security for your warehouse investments

                                Our control modules for rail-guided stacker cranes and materials handling elements are based on SIMATIC-S7 or Allen-Bradley control systems. The universal use of fieldbus solutions on the sensor/actuator level reduces installation costs to a minimum, avoids sources of errors and permits cost-effective expansion at a later date. Decentralised technology makes the systems scalable and permits reliable, continuous use even under the toughest operating conditions. The coupling to a master computer is achieved either via a standardised communications interface or via flexible, programmable interfaces in the materials-flow computer which, for example, also permits a direct link between warehouse system and SAP.


                                The visualisation systems include comprehensive logging and statistics functions. All packages offer the option of remote diagnosis and permit remote access for rectifying problems – to relieve operating personnel yet further.

                                • Modernisation: optimising existing warehouses and plants
                                  Flexible responses to suit different life cycles

                                  Even a warehouse system can become out of date. Or changing boundary conditions could make it necessary to modify or optimise a warehouse or add new functions. And the individual components of a warehouse system have different “lifetime expectancies”. Whereas the mechanical components might remain in use for 20 years or more, the efficiency of a control system could need upgrading after just 10 years or even earlier. In other words, some components in a warehouse age faster, thus constituting a risk and curbing progress.

                                  DAMBACH has been established in the warehouse systems market for 40 years. The fact that the market is constantly changing and suppliers come and go is therefore irrelevant. Because our efficient modernisation concepts can also optimise installations when their manufacturers have gone out of business or no longer provide support for warehousing technology. This is where DAMBACH can exploit design and production synergies and offer convincing concepts for all modernisation projects.

                                  Making materials flows fit for the future
                                  Innovative ideas for modernisation

                                  Existing facilities can also benefit from the expertise and experience of the experts at DAMBACH. A well-conceived modernisation concept can bring mechanical elements and controls up to the latest standard. Our range of services covers the complete materials-flow strategies of small and midsize high bay warehouses with apron and order-picking. So even with older facilities it is possible to benefit from state-of-the-art technology and innovative ideas – and hence increase the productivity of your warehouse.
