A pallet shuttle is a standalone, automated, high density pallet storage system that employs self-propelled shuttle carts to move pallets toward the front or back in a racking lane. Shuttles are motor driven and travel along tracks inside a storage lane.
When storing products, a lift truck puts pallets in the front position in a channel and the carriage transports the pallet back to the furthest available slot in the rack until the channel is completely loaded. When pulling pallets, individual units are collected from their position and transported to the foremost position to be selected by a lift truck.
Pallet shuttle solutions are ideal for high throughput warehousing applications and enable operators to automatically store and collect pallets using a vehicle mounted controller or integration with a WMS.
Maximize Warehouse Storage Density
Warehouse operators gain significant benefits from deep lane AS/RS systems through additional storage density inside their buildings. Fewer lift truck aisles are required, therefore all of that aisle space is made available for storage. Carriage mounted sensors allow shuttles to place pallets as close together as possible, making the most of storage space within each channel. Furthermore, with a shuttle, minimal clearance is required between levels allowing more vertical storage as well.
Improve Warehouse Efficiency and Safety
The benefits don’t stop at storage density. Operational efficiency goes off the charts because forklifts are no longer required to move to individual aisles--each pallet is placed or retrived from a single rack face. This considerably lowers average loading and unloading intervals. Accordingly, it can reduce the number of forklifts required, and more importantly, greatly reduce labor expenses because fewer operators are required.
When you reduce the number of forklifts driving up and down aisles, you also reduce your exposure to accidents. Less forklift travel results in fewer damaged lift trucks and racking, a decrease in product loss and not as many injuries or safety mishaps.
Raymond’s Radioshuttle system is among the most advanced pallet shuttle options in the industry. As the the pioneer in pallet shuttle solutions almost three decades ago, Radioshuttle features extremely fast shuttle speeds and a battery life of 8-14 hours, depending on system design. Radioshuttle equipment is also remarkably dependable and durable—some units installed nearly 30 years ago are still in operation today!
Radioshuttle units accommodate weights of up to 3,900 pounds. And for extreme conditions or cold storage applications, Radioshuttle is an excellent option. The equipment functions faithfully in environments from -22 to +104 degrees Fahrenheit.
