Features

High density storage with flexible location management

Shuttle Rack M can handle multiple types of containers and cardboard boxes. Free-allocation management function by the controller automatically adjusts the storage location according to the size of the cargo, allowing for high-density storage.

  • Plastic containers
    Euro containers, collapsible containers and other industry standard containers.

  • Carton boxes
    Multiple carton boxes.

  • Free allocation
    One type of shelving rack can accommodate various storage patterns according load size. This provides the highest storage density and flexibility.

Easy Maintenance

Faulty shuttles can be replaced with little disruption to the system. Other shuttles continue to operate while maintenance is being performed on one shuttle. By controlling the number of active shuttles, maintenance can be systematically performed on each shuttle without interrupting the handling process.

Energy Saving

The system has one shuttle vehicle installed on every level. Each shuttle travels at high speeds to quickly store and retrieve loads. By using lightweight vehicles to transport loads, the "Shuttle Rack M" consumes 60% less power per cycle than conventional crane systems.
