Four Ways toward Optimizing the Storage and Retrieval of Different Kinds of Load
1. Storing heavy loads
Thanks to the development of novel and more resilient trays, the Shuttle XP 1000 can pick up loads of up to 1,000 kg from trays with a width of 1,250 mm, and up to 800 kg from trays with a width of 4,050 mm. This equals a total storage capacity of 120 tons per vertical carousel – a figure that is almost twice that of the loads managed by previous systems.
2. Flexibility in storing parts of different sizes
Trays of different load-bearing capacity can be used within a single vertical carousel. Aside from reduced acquisition costs, this tray mix allows customers to simultaneously handle heavy storage items and large quantities of small parts in a single shelf system. In short, we are offering our customers a solution which enables them to make their work processes more flexible, economical, and ergonomic.
3. Storing pallets
Thanks to a newly developed tray technology, the Shuttle XP 1000 is also suitable as a pallet shelf, as the model can pick up two side-by-side pallets.
The Euro pallets are placed into an optionally available manual or automatic pallet tray extraction device with a stacker, from where they can be stored directly. This new pallet storage system results in additional reduction of storage and production space, because the pallets can be stacked up to 20 meters. What is more, it provides faster access to the goods stored on pallets. The time-consuming process of loading and unloading the pallets is eliminated, as is the necessity of using high-rack stackers.
4. Integrated hoisting crane
For the first time, the Shuttle XP 1000 gives customers the option of using storage lifts with a factory-assembled crane. It allows for the handling of heavy parts using an integrated hoisting crane right at the workplace.
The hoisting crane integrated in the industrial lift makes the efficient storage and retrieval even of heavy loads with weights up to a ton an easy task. They are placed directly onto the trays of the storage system with the factory-installed crane. The crane is operated electrically and can be extended to the front of the tray extraction device to pick up and return the heavy items. No additional base is needed when the system is set up. Likewise, it is not necessary to install an external hoisting or slewing crane. Further advantages include the fast and safe storage of the heavy goods on trays, improved ergonomics and safety for the staff, and the possibility of moving the entire system including the crane to another place without any difficulty.
Vertical storage lift systems from Kardex Remstar
The Shuttle XP modular vertical lift system was developed for many different storage and retrieval applications in companies. The combination of compacting the warehouse as much as possible, flexible storage strategies, and safety makes the Shuttle XP series a unique storage solution. Kardex Remstar developed the Shuttle XP 1000 for the efficient storage and ergonomic retrieval of heavy parts. With its pallet storage function and integrated hoisting crane, it has two additional applications with which our customers can optimize their storage logistics even further.
