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.
