Schaefer Systems InternationalNavette multi-level shuttle
Flexible mini-load AS/RS deploys multi-level shuttles
For efficient storage and picking of trays, totes or cartons in automated warehouses, the Navette flexible, multi-level shuttle by Schaefer Systems International can be scaled to meet overall automated storage and retrieval system requirements.
A shuttle-based solution can be tailored to order volume, required throughput and individual article structure. Each unit integrates into a steel framework of mini-load AS/RS aisles and is guided by travel and support rails. Operating as a single component, the vehicle serves up to eight storage levels, two in parallel. It is equipped with two load handling devices (such as carton grabs) spaced one above the other to match the distance between two rack levels.
Each device can transport two trays, totes or cartons. In one load cycle, the vehicle moves a total of four transport units simultaneously, serving storage locations on two storage levels in a single operating sequence. A cantilever configuration allows two vehicles to operate simultaneously per travel level with dynamic areas of overlap, monitoring their positions relative to one another to prevent collisions.
