A pallet shuttle is an automated, independent, deep lane pallet storage system that employs self-propelled shuttle carts to carry pallets forward or backward in a racking channel. Shuttles are motor driven and travel along tracks inside a storage lane.
When storing products, a lift truck puts pallets in the first position in a channel and the shuttle carries the load back to the furthest empty slot in the rack until the lane is filled completely. When removing products, individual units are retrieved from their location and moved to the rack face to be selected by a forklift.
Pallet shuttle systems are perfect for high throughput warehouses and enable lift truck operators to seamlessly store and collect pallets using a forklift mounted controller or systematically through a WMS.
Maximize Warehouse Storage Density
Warehouse operators gain substantial benefits from deep lane AS/RS systems through improved storage capacity within their buildings. A smaller number of lift truck aisles are required, meaning that all of that corridor space is recovered for storage. Cart mounted sensors permit pallet shuttles to position pallets in very close proximity, maximizing storage capacity inside each channel. 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 forklifts are no longer required to travel to specific aisles--each unit is placed or unloaded from a central interface. This greatly shortens typical loading and unloading times. Consequently, it can minimize the number of lift trucks that are needed, and slash labor expenditures by employing fewer workers.
By reducing lift truck travel, you also reduce your chances of accidents. Fewer lift truck hours mean fewer damaged forklifts and racks, less product loss and fewer safety incidents or injuries.
Raymond’s Radioshuttle system is one of the most sophisticated 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 automation systems are also extraordinarily dependable and durable—some units deployed nearly 30 years ago are still operating today!
Radioshuttle units can handle loads of up to 3,900 pounds. And for cold storage or harsh operating conditions, Radioshuttle is the perfect option. Shuttles operate dependably in environments from -22 to +104 degrees Fahrenheit.
