4-Way Pallet Shuttles For AS/RS Pallet Storage Multi Deep

 
  • 4-way shuttles offer high density storage of pallets in AS/RS in automated warehousing and distribution centers.
  • These 3D movement shuttles can move both in 2D X-Y directions and travel up-down Z direction with vertical lift units.
  • Pallets are lifted to designated storage level, moved cross-lane and down-lane to next available pallet position.
  • These shuttles move pallets within AS/RS and can be easily paired with AGV fleet, forklifts fleet or input-output conveyors.
  • By communicating with WCS or WMS system, these shuttles move on both longitudinal and transverse rails.
  • Hence almost 90 % space utilization while avoiding forklifts-shelves collisions-reducing maintenance costs caused by accidents.
  • It’s scalable for any high-throughput operation. It is flexible to allow reacting to inventory and order processing changes.
  • Deal with peak season by setting up and scheduling operation fleet, and maximize efficiency, cost and resources.
