A pallet shuttle is a standalone, automated, high density pallet storage solution that utilizes self-powered shuttle carriages to carry pallets backward or forward in a racking channel. Shuttles are powered by electric motors and travel along rails within a storage channel.
During loading, a lift truck sets pallets in the first position in a lane and the shuttle carries the load back to the furthest empty position in the rack until the lane is fully loaded. When removing products, individual units are picked up from their location and transported to the front to be handled by a forklift.
Pallet shuttle installations are well suited to high turnover warehousing applications and enable workers to seamlessly store and pick up pallets either through a forklift mounted transmitter or systematically through a WMS.
Maximize Warehouse Storage Density
These types of deep lane AS/RS systems benefit warehouse operators substantially by adding storage capacity within a facility. Not as many forklift lanes are required, meaning that a good portion of that corridor space is recovered for storage. Carriage mounted sensors allow pallet shuttles to position 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
Added storage capacity is just one of the benefits of shuttle systems. Performance skyrockets because lift trucks are no longer required to drive to separate aisles--each pallet is placed or retrived from a central interface. This greatly reduces ordinary loading and unloading times. Accordingly, it can minimize the number of lift trucks that are needed, and slash labor costs by employing fewer workers.
When you reduce the number of forklifts driving up and down aisles, you also lower your exposure to 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 among the most sophisticated pallet shuttle options available. As the inventor of pallet shuttle systems nearly 30 years ago, Radioshuttle offers industry leading shuttle speeds and a battery life of 8-14 hours, depending on system design. Radioshuttle equipment is also extraordinarily reliable and sturdy—some units installed as far back as 1990 are still operating today!
Radioshuttle units can handle loads of up to 3,900 pounds. And for extreme conditions or cold storage applications, Radioshuttle is an excellent option. Even in environments from -22 to +104 degrees, the shuttles continue to perform reliably.
