The modular Shuttle XP vertical lift is a self-contained system in which trays are stored vertically on the front and rear of the unit. In between is an extractor which automatically conveys the trays holding the goods to the access opening at the touch of a button or when a barcode is scanned. Thanks to the modular design the Shuttle XP can be adapted to the requisite height both before and after it has been installed and the number of access openings can also be modified. Depending on the height of the room, this means that the size of the footprint can be reduced by at least 85 percent compared to conventional systems. Each tray is automatically scanned with the help of Optiflex technology – the products to be stored are then assigned to the ideal storage location at intervals of 25 millimeters.
Flexible, efficient storage strategy
The modular design of the Shuttle XP provides virtually unlimited flexibility when making the best use of various room heights. The unit height can be chosen in 100-millimeter steps so that the Shuttle XP always perfectly meets capacity and height requirements in each case. Even when there is a change of location, it can quickly be adapted to the new environment by adding or removing modules.
Adapting to the building situation
When using the Shuttle XP over several floors, up to six access openings can be integrated anywhere on the front or rear of the unit. These positions can subsequently be altered. The shutter door in each access opening prevents draughts from escaping, protecting both the operator and the goods stored.
