Maximum storage capacity and efficiency in a minimal floor space footprint

Why an automated storage solution could work for your business

  • Save storage space - maximises your available floorspace but utilising more vertical storage.
  • Reduce costs - makes savings on labour and overheads.
  • More efficient - creates a smoother-running storage and retrieval system on your workflow.
  • Stock control - software options create flexibility to manage your stock.
  • Conformity - especially in a controlled environment.
  • Reduces risk of personal injury due to awkward lifting.

Carousels and Shuttles

If you're looking to store a wide range of small parts or finished products, Carousels are the perfect solution. Bring the right part to you quickly and easily, with minimal effort.

  • Typical weight capacity of carousels are 3, 6, 9 or 14 tonnes.
  • Items are usually up to a “shoe box” size.
  • Light duty carouself will generally have a max shelf loading of 125kg uniform distributed load (UDL).
  • Heavy-duty carousel will generally have a shelf loading of 400kg UDL.
  • Manual override in the event of power loss.

Shuttles are a great choice if you’re looking to store heavier or medium to large components / products.

A shuttle storage system is based around a central lift in a column - whereas storage carousels rotate all shelves to bring the right product to the operator. An elevator travels up a central column and pulls the requested tray and brings the tray to the opening.

Heavier and larger items are handled with ease.
