The Extension Arm of the Storage and Retrieval Machine
The DAMBACH COMPACT SHUTTLE for high bay warehouses, makes pallet storage and retrieval even more efficient. Used in conjunction with rail-guided storage and retrieval machines, 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 storage and retrieval machine (SRM) 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 SRM 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.
