A pallet shuttle is an automated, independent, high density pallet storage solution that utilizes self-propelled shuttle carriages to transport pallets forward or backward in a racking channel. Shuttles are motor driven and travel along tracks within a storage lane.
When storing products, a lift truck puts pallets in the first slot in a channel and the carriage moves the pallet backward to the furthest unused slot in the rack until the channel is entirely loaded. When pulling pallets, unit loads are collected from their position and moved to the foremost position to be selected by a forklift.
Pallet shuttle solutions are ideal for high volume facilities and make it possible for lift truck operators to automatically 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 additional storage capacity inside their buildings. A smaller number of lift truck lanes are required, therefore most of that corridor space is recovered for storage. Carriage mounted sensors allow shuttles to deposit pallets as close together as possible, making the most of storage capacity within 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. Performance increases dramatically because forklifts are no longer required to move to individual aisles--every pallet is placed or retrived from a primary interface. This greatly shortens ordinary loading and unloading intervals. Accordingly, it can allow a smaller forklift fleet, and more to the point, slash labor costs because not as many workers are necessary.
By diminishing lift truck travel, you also reduce your risk of accidents. Less forklift travel means fewer damaged lift trucks and racking, less product damage and not as many safety incidents or injuries.
Raymond’s Radioshuttle solution is one of the most advanced pallet shuttle options on the market today. As the the pioneer in pallet shuttle systems almost three decades ago, Radioshuttle features industry leading shuttle speeds and a battery life of 8-14 hours, depending on system design. Radioshuttle solutions are also extraordinarily reliable and sturdy—some systems deployed as far back as 1990 are still in operation today!
Radioshuttle units can handle weights of up to 3,900 pounds. And for extreme conditions or cold storage applications, Radioshuttle is the ideal option. Even in environments from -22 to +104 degrees, the equipment continues to perform reliably.
