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 lane. Shuttles are powered by electric motors and travel along rails within a storage lane.
During loading, a forklift places pallets in the first position in a channel and the carriage moves the load back to the furthest unused position in the rack until the channel is entirely loaded. When removing products, unit loads are collected from their position and transported to the rack face to be picked by a forklift.
Pallet shuttle systems are perfect for high volume storage applications and allow lift truck operators to automatically store and retrieve pallets using a vehicle mounted controller or systematically through a warehouse management system.
Maximize Warehouse Storage Density
Warehouse operators gain substantial benefits from deep lane AS/RS systems through improved storage density inside their buildings. A smaller number of lift truck aisles are required, therefore a good portion of that corridor space is made available for storage. Onboard sensors enable pallet shuttles to place unit loads in very close proximity, making the most of storage space inside each channel. Vertical storage capacity is also enhanced because shuttles require very little clearance between levels.
Improve Warehouse Efficiency and Safety
The benefits don’t stop at storage density. Operational efficiency skyrockets because lift trucks are no longer required to travel to specific aisles--each pallet is loaded or retrieved from a single rack face. This considerably lowers ordinary loading and unloading intervals. As a result, it can allow a smaller forklift fleet, and slash labor costs with fewer drivers.
By reducing lift truck travel, you also reduce your exposure to accidents. Less forklift travel means fewer damaged lift trucks and racking, a decrease in product loss and fewer injuries or safety mishaps.
Raymond’s Radioshuttle solution is one of the most innovative pallet shuttle options on the market today. As the inventor of pallet shuttle solutions close to 30 years ago, Radioshuttle features industry leading shuttle speeds and a battery life of 8-14 hours, depending on system design. Radioshuttle automation systems are also incredibly reliable and sturdy—some units installed nearly 30 years ago are still operating today!
Radioshuttle units are capable of carrying loads of up to 3,900 pounds. And for cold storage or harsh operating conditions, Radioshuttle is an excellent choice. Even in environments from -22 to +104 degrees, the equipment continues to function dependably.
