1. Product Specifications:
Shuttle racking, is a deep lane storage and retrieval system. The pallet shuttle system consists in a specific rack and a mobile shuttle. This shuttle is a self-powered device that runs on rails in the storage lanes for the loading and unloading of pallets. It is transported to its location at the
front or the back of a lane (in case of open back side) by a standard forklift. Once at its home position, the shuttle performs the loading and unloading tasks without any human intervention.
These tasks are instructed by the fork lift driver using a remote control. Once the tasks are completed the shuttle returns to its home position and is then ready to be transported to a new location for a new task.
By introducing more shuttles into a racking system, the performance will increase. The system can be used for new installations as well as for refurbishments, and is independent from the number and the depth of the lanes. The systems is widely used in food, FMCG, Cold chain logistic area, etc.
2. Clear benefits and advantages:
A shuttle system offers highest possible density storage and is considered the best solution amongst not fully automated systems
The system is semi-automated and works in combination with a fork lift truck.
While the shuttle transports the load within the racking, the fork lift driver is free to work elsewhere, thus he is optimizing his working time.
Compact storage of another article (SKU) on every lane.
Ability to handle the pallets FIFO and LIFO. And the possibility to change at every time. Both can be available in the same block. What we call 'Maximum Flexibility'

5. Shuttle operational requirements
For a good operation and the shuttle is a moving transport device, a good quality pallet is required. The pallet surface should be closed (no mesh patterns), unless stated otherwise.
Wooden pallets of good quality, allowing the span between the 2 pallet-rails, with a maximum pallet deflection of 20mm
The pallet and/or load have a fully closed strip in the middle for the detection of the sensors
Not acceptable or to be tested for approval:
Pallets with too high deflection
Pallets with an open bottom construction
Containers and metal support structures
Operating temperature: from -30°C to +35°C
Relative humidity: max 80%
Shuttle better always remains in the cold-store environment
Before switching on the power again the shuttle must be dry (no condensation)
· Dusty, sandy, humid, combustible,… environments
6. Warehouse conditions/Cold Store
Keep the shuttle always INSIDE the Cold Store
But charge the batteries always OUTSIDE the Cold Store
charge only after warming up to normal temperature
So in 3 shift applications best to use 3 battery packs :
1 working in the shuttle
1 warming up
1 charging in the battery station.
Battery and shuttle must be completely dry before connecting
For existing Cold Store Rooms check for condensation or icing on rails, floors
For NEW Cold Store Warehouses check if a intermediate area is foreseen between ambient and frozen zone, humidity around a frozen storage zone is prohibited.
