Radio Shuttles

Radio Shuttles

The radio shuttle is a self-powered pallet carrying device that runs on rails in storage lanes in specifically designed racking structures, for loading and unloading of pallets. The radio shuttle, consists of a programmable mobile carrier that is transportable between racks (by means of a traditional forklift) and a specifically designed racking structure, thus optimizes the time of the employees. For example, the forklift driver wants to retrieve a number of pallets from a specific lane. In order to do so, he places the radio shuttle (on home position) in the lane and gives the appropriate command via the accompanied remote control. The radio shuttle then carries out the assignment by running up and down the lane without any further intervention, giving the driver the opportunity to perform other tasks. Τhis way, the number of operators needed remains limited. In case, during certain periods of time demand, and thus rotation, increases in the warehouse, you can simply introduce more radio shuttles.

- A radio communication system offers maximum storage capacity and is considered the best solution between non-fully automated systems.

- The system is semi-automatic (operated in conjunction with a forklift truck).

- While the radio shuttle carries the load into the vehicle, the fork lift truck is free to work elsewhere, optimizing its time.

- Compact storage of an object (sku) per lane.

- Ability to handle FIFO and lifo pallets (refer to the specific configuration in this snippet).

- Strong construction.

- AC / inverter motor technology.

- Compact compared to DC motors (lower height, more battery space).

- Less maintenance.

- Electromechanical lifting device (eccentric) hoist (continuous lifting on all sides).

- Without hydraulic systems (no oil leakage).

- Charge of convenience.

- Large battery capacity.

- Short charging time.

- The braking energy is renewed, thus optimizing operating autonomy.
