A pallet shuttle is a standalone, automated, deep lane pallet storage system that utilizes self-powered shuttle carriages to move pallets toward the back or front in a racking channel. Shuttles are motor driven and travel along rails within a storage lane.
When storing products, a lift truck places pallets in the foremost slot in a channel and the cart transports the load backward to the furthest available position in the rack until the channel is completely loaded. For unloading, individual units are collected from their slot and carried to the foremost position to be picked by a forklift.
Pallet shuttle solutions are perfect for high turnover facilities and enable workers to seamlessly load and pick up pallets either through a forklift mounted remote control or integration with a warehouse management system.
Maximize Warehouse Storage Density
These types of deep lane AS/RS systems benefit warehouse operators greatly by improving storage density within a facility. Fewer forklift aisles are necessary, and consequently a good portion of that corridor space can be converted to storage. Cart mounted sensors allow pallet shuttles to deposit unit loads as close together as possible, maximizing storage capacity within each land. Vertical storage capacity is also enhanced because shuttles require very little clearance between levels.
Improve Warehouse Efficiency and Safety
Added storage capacity is just one of the benefits of shuttle systems. Productivity skyrockets because lift trucks no longer have to travel to individual aisles--each unit is loaded or unloaded from a single rack face. This greatly reduces typical loading and unloading intervals. Consequently, it can minimize the number of lift trucks that are needed, and reduce labor costs with fewer drivers.
When you reduce the number of forklifts driving up and down aisles, you also lower your risk of accidents. Fewer lift truck hours mean fewer damaged lift trucks and racks, less product loss and fewer injuries or safety mishaps.
Raymond’s Radioshuttle system is among the most advanced pallet shuttle options in the industry. As the inventor of pallet shuttle systems close to 30 years ago, Radioshuttle offers extremely fast shuttle speeds and a battery life of 8-14 hours, depending on system design. Radioshuttle solutions are also incredibly dependable and sturdy—some units installed as far back as 1990 are still operating today!
Radioshuttle units are capable of carrying loads of up to 3,900 pounds. And for extreme conditions or cold storage applications, Radioshuttle is an excellent choice. The equipment functions dependably in environments from -22 to +104 degrees Fahrenheit.
