The Next Generation: Dematic Presents the Dematic Multishuttle 2 E

Heusenstamm, 9 March 2020 – Dematic presents the Dematic Multishuttle (DMS) 2 E, the latest generation of its leading warehouse automation solution. The system stores products, buffers and sequences them for order picking and order compilation. The innovative solution of the shuttle can achieve even better performance with improved accuracy. In addition, the shuttle is compatible with all other DMS components (including Dematic's lift and rack conveyor) and supports our patented inter-aisle transfer technology. The dynamic and sequenced provision of goods in real time ensures that the right product is delivered to the right place at the right time and with maximum transparency. Dematic iQ software (or an optional SAP solution) controls all logistics processes in the warehouse as well as order picking and dispatch. 

"The DMS 2 E significantly increases speed, storage density, accuracy and availability in warehouses and distribution centres. We have improved the system in almost every way for higher efficiency and safety", says Jessica Heinz, Head of Marketing and Business Development for Dematic Central Europe. 

The system is a refinement of the proven Multishuttle 2 modular system and supplements the existing wide range of Dematic shuttles. The new version offers improved single and multidepth storage of standard containers. Modified sensor technology and revised finger grippers allow more compact and secure storage and retrieval of the containers. Redesigned wheels ensure a smoother circulation of the shuttles in the rack.

In addition to an improved design, the DMS 2 E is easily scalable, particularly with the option of using two shuttles on the same level. This significantly reduces the initial acquisition costs. "Although the DMS 2 E is a highly standardised product, the system has a modular structure and is scalable to almost any degree. This allows fast-growing companies to adapt immediately to changing requirements", says Heinz. 

The system can be easily integrated into many Dematic solutions, such as the new Dematic Micro-Fulfillment solution. Dematic iQ software controls the system. Or, like all solutions from Dematic, the DMS 2 E can also be optionally integrated into an SAP Extended Warehouse Management solution.

As with all Dematic shuttles, the DMS 2 E ensures a smooth exchange of goods across shuttle aisles. With shuttles alone, the containers are moved within the rack from one aisle to the adjacent aisle. "This allows us to achieve even greater efficiency and reduce the need for lifts and conveyor technology", says Heinz. 

A freezer version of the product is also being developed for the storage and order picking of frozen products.
