Shuttle Storage System Part 3 – Layouting

Shuttle vehicles and rails must be designed in a space-saving way, in order to reach a profitable height grid. The height of the rail is decisive for the reachable space utilisation, because the height arises in every storage level and the totes are stored with a greater, vertical distance as actual necessary. Thus, the space utilisation and the storage capacity are less than those of lifting beams or miniloads – also because of the need of vertical conveyors. On the other hand, the floor space required is almost the same. The rail usually features a high integration of functions. It combines the function of positioning, energy transmission, carrying and guidance of the shuttle as well as safety functions. The data transmission is normally done via WiFi or Bluetooth. The rack has to be realized in that way, that it is able to absorb the occurring force of the movement, even in the case of error. Consequently, the costs for this kind of rack are higher than those for systems, which don’t cause forces or only small forces into the rack.
