A pallet shuttle is an automated, independent, high density pallet storage solution that employs self-powered shuttle carriages to move pallets toward the back or front in a racking channel. Shuttles are powered by electric motors and travel along tracks inside a storage channel.
During loading, a forklift puts pallets in the foremost slot in a lane and the shuttle carries the pallet back to the furthest available slot in the rack until the lane is fully loaded. When removing products, individual units are retrieved from their slot and transported to the rack face to be selected by a forklift.
Pallet shuttle solutions are well suited to high throughput facilities and allow workers to seamlessly load and pick up pallets either through a truck mounted transmitter or systematically through a WMS.
Maximize Warehouse Storage Density
Warehouse operators gain significant benefits from deep lane AS/RS systems through improved storage density inside their buildings. A smaller number of forklift lanes are required, meaning that most of that corridor space can be converted to storage. Cart mounted sensors enable shuttles to deposit unit loads as close together as possible, maximizing storage capacity inside each land. Vertical storage capacity is also enhanced because shuttles require very little clearance between levels.
Improve Warehouse Efficiency and Safety
There are more benefits to shuttle systems than just added capacity. Efficiency skyrockets because forklift operators no longer have to move to separate aisles--each pallet is placed or retrieved from a single rack face. This considerably shortens average loading and unloading times. Consequently, it can minimize the number of lift trucks that are needed, and more importantly, slash labor costs because not as many workers are necessary.
When you reduce the number of forklifts driving up and down aisles, you also lower your exposure to accidents. Fewer lift truck hours mean a reduction in damaged lift trucks and racking, less product damage and fewer safety incidents or injuries.
Raymond’s Radioshuttle solution is one of the most innovative pallet shuttle options in the industry. As the inventor of pallet shuttle solutions nearly three decades ago, Radioshuttle offers industry leading shuttle speeds and a battery life of 8-14 hours, depending on system setup. Radioshuttle automation systems are also remarkably dependable and durable—some systems deployed as far back as 1990 are still in operation today!
Radioshuttle units accommodate loads of up to 3,900 pounds. And for cold storage or harsh operating conditions, Radioshuttle is the ideal choice. Even in temperatures from -22 to +104 degrees, the equipment continues to operate dependably.
