Radio shuttle racking is a new high density storage solution with storage racks,radio shuttle cart (pallet runner) and forklift, to make the maximal warehouse availability with more economical investment.
Main components of the radio shuttle racking system
there are 3 main components in radio shuttle racking system of radio shuttle rack, radio shuttle cart and forklift.
|Radio Shuttle Racks||Shuttle Cart (Pallet Runner)||Forklift|
How to design radio shuttle racking for a warehouse
Firstly, we should check if your warehouse could be designed with radio shuttle racking, according to the storage products and warehouse construction configuration, usually we suggest the radio shuttle racking for large number of products, such as food, beverages, chemicals, tobacco, etc.
Then we would make the design as the products storage methods, there are 4 storage styles.
|First In – First Out (FIFO)||Last In – First Out (LIFO)||Selected Picking with Tunnel||Mixed Storage Design|
Storage Working Principle of Radio Shuttle Racking System:
With a specific made guide rail, the Radio shuttle Cart (or called as Pallet Runner, Pallet mole ) can work on the storage rack system smoothly. The end stopper is for prevent shuttle to fall down when moving. Due to different kind of Radio shuttle, Radio shuttle racking system can be made which according to the customers’ requirements.
Because the Radio shuttle racking system no longer need the forklift to pick up the goods inside of tunnel, but a shuttle instead, the tunnel of shuttle racking system can be designed smaller. Therefore optimizing the warehouse performance.
The Radio Shuttle system consists of a pallet racking system which completed with numbers of lanes and rails. Palletized goods are stored on the rack system and are transported by a carrier – shuttle car. The radio-controlled shuttle car helps transporting the goods and stoving the pallets resulting in full utilization of each lane. Forklift trucks are just load and unload on the picking faces without the need to driving in. It reduces the risk of damage on racking structure and it provides a safer working environment. 70% of the handling process are automatically finished by the shuttle cars which reduce the forklift travel and make them available for other opeartion.
