Itoh Denki, a leading international specialist in motorised drive roller (MDR) based material handling technologies, has announced the launch of a highly innovative new diverting and sorting module designed specifically for heavier individual loads.

Itoh Denki, the leading international specialist in motorised drive roller (MDR) based material handling technologies, has announced the launch of a highly innovative new diverting and sorting module designed specifically for heavier individual loads. Capable of handling individual items weighing up to 250kg, the M-RAT uses the same acclaimed 24V DC powered technologies which drive its other sector-leading products such as the F-RAT, the company’s 90° diverter and sorter unit for accurately diverting smaller loads.

It has been developed in specific response to requests from customers across the world seeking systems capable of dealing with larger and heavier products notably as manufacturing requirements continue to evolve, and concerns around operator and product safety remain at the forefront.

The M-RAT was showcased at LogiMAT in Germany during the spring and attracted a wealth of interest from companies seeking to optimise safety and efficiency around the handling of larger products in their facilities. Customers and system designers have often previously had to resort to the use of pneumatically powered systems to handle more bulky items, bringing greater challenges in areas such as commissioning, maintenance and safety.

Another advantage of MRAT is its ability to operate at temperatures up to -30°C, making it a solution of choice for carton and products routing in frozen storage intralogistics operations. Tatsuya Akashi, President of Itoh Denki Europe, explained: “Across a variety of materials handling functions in manufacturing and logistics, companies are facing the need to quickly, effectively and safely move heavier items between individual processes and at the end of the line ready for dispatch.”

“This is especially the case in the automotive sector, for example, where heavy parts have to be transferred around a manufacturing facility. Our ongoing focus on research & development in the sector has driven the development of M-RAT which runs from standard 24V DC power – negating the need for pneumatic systems – and offers far greater options for both specifiers and designers.” The MRAT is now available to the EMEA customers.
