Stacker Cranes

Körber’s stacker cranes are designed to increase operational efficiencies, improve accuracy and optimize space by automating the storage and retrieval of goods within your warehouse racking system.

Materials handling challenges

Storing goods in warehouses and distribution centers generates key challenges:

  • In the ecommerce era, more and more product lines need to be stored, but space is finite.
  • Automation is essential if you’re looking to eliminate operational inefficiencies and increase productivity.
  • Manual storage and retrieval – using forklift trucks, for instance – is labor-intensive, time-consuming and prone to costly mistakes

Automated stacker cranes bring speed and efficiency

Travelling automatically along aisles, Körber’s stacker cranes are designed to efficiently handle the storage and retrieval of palletized goods in high-bay warehouses. They are highly efficient when it comes to stacking pallets in high-density storage racking solutions.

Our automated stacker cranes offer much greater capacity, load and height capabilities than manually operated forklifts, for example, and are significantly more accurate, ensuring error-free, smooth, fast and safe storage and retrieval operations.

Controlled by a warehouse management system, Körber stacker cranes can easily be adapted to the specific needs of your warehouse. Our modular stacker cranes can be configured in terms of size, load capacity, building height and cycle times, and can be made suitable for a wide range of applications.

Key benefits

Diverse capabilities

Our range of miniloads and stacker cranes can operate with diverse loads, from 1kg to 5000kg, and can be arranged in single or multiple deep storage configurations. They can reach storage locations up to 50m high and achieve speeds up to 6m/s.

Suited to most conditions

Our crane systems can be specifically designed to operate in special working conditions, such as freezing, high humidity and clean or harsh environments.
