Comparable to the drive-in racking system, the Dexion Pallet Shuttle system is a semi-automated system for the storing of goods in side by side pallet channels or rows. The placement of goods within the channels is done by a remotely controlled automated pallet shuttle (a battery powered cart), eliminating the need for forklift trucks to enter the pallet racking itself, saving manpower, equipment and time. Outside of the racking, the handling of pallets can be done by standard forklift trucks.
The pallet shuttle system maximises storage space like drive-in racking but with lower levels of stress for staff and decreased risk to staff, goods and equipment loading machinery. Pallets are stored on supports mounted on both sides of the channels. Within the channel, the pallet shuttle can accurately lift, place and rearrange pallets to suit the storage requirements and workflow of the facility. Functioning at high-speeds, the pallet shuttle provides quick and reliable storage within the racking system.
The pallet shuttle system is highly suitable for use in:
For the ultra dense storage of a drive-in racking system that can work to either FILO or FIFO principles, the Pallet Shuttle System can streamline your operations by reducing manpower and equipment costs while providing a safer and less stressful work environment.
The pallet shuttle is powered by a Lithium battery. Near the end of the battery’s life, the pallet shuttle will automatically return to its start point to permit the user to replace the battery or the shuttle itself. The pallet shuttle will not stop working mid-operation.
CE marked and made in Italy, the pallet shuttle comes in a range of different models which are designed for a variety of different pallet configurations. It is available to be configured for an warmer (0 to 45°C) or colder (-1 to -30°C) environments.
