The DAMBACH Compact Shuttle for high bay warehouses, makes pallet storage and retrieval even more efficient. Used in conjunction with rail-guided stacker cranes, the Compact Shuttle enables warehouse operators to achieve really compact, multi-deep pallet storage. To do this, the storage lanes are fitted with rails on which the shuttles can run. Shuttle and stacker crane therefore form one logistical unit: the shuttle runs on the rails to the allotted storage position where it sets down or picks up a pallet, and the stacker crane transports the shuttle to the correct storage or retrieval point in the warehouse.
Communication between the parent vehicle and the Compact Shuttle is by way of a point-to-point radio link. This link monitors itself permanently to guarantee maximum communication reliability.
Especially a combination of transfer cars and Compact Shuttle can reduce the energy usage, while maintaining a high throughput capacity. This way the DAMBACH Compact Shuttle can demonstrate it´s strengths in the pallet-handling sector.
