A shuttle storage system consists of the following components:
– Shuttle vehicle with or without lifting functionality (MLS or OLS Shuttle)
– Vertical conveyor
– Railing system
– Transfer conveyors
Shuttle vehicles, which – regarding the design – aren’t bound to a specific aisle, can move themselves autonomous and therefore take functions in different levels or aisles of the rack. Therefore appropriate transfer devices are necessary. Shuttle vehicles can also be the replacement for automated conveyor systems, in order to bridge transport routes outside of the rack. Accordingly, the design of the shuttles must be appropriate for leaving the rack and moving on the industrial floor or on a rail system.
