Material Handling And Transportation Systems
MATERIAL HANDLING SOLUTIONS TO INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY AND OPTIMISE WAREHOUSE LEAD TIME
The System Logistics handling and transportation systems rapidly and efficiently connect all the areas used for the receipt of goods, production, order picking and material shipment within the company, optimising storage and transport within the warehouse.
The range of pallet handling and transport systems includes:
- AGV (Automated Laser Guided Vehicles)
- SVL (System vehicle loops)
- Shuttle cars
- Pallet conveyors
SVL - SYSTEM VEHICLE LOOPS
SVL steering shuttles are designed to handle and sort large volumes of materials within the warehouse. Reducing the transfer times of loading units, they are particularly suited to automated order picking systems and are capable of managing "just-in-time" shipments.
Functioning as a pallet sorting system, SVLs are usually positioned between a vertical automated warehouse (HBWH) and the picking bays, or between the order picking bays and shipment bays.
SVL steering shuttles travel on a monorail circuit, which allows higher speeds on curves, maximising transport capacity.
SVL systems offer numerous advantages, including speed and responsiveness, maximum pallet throughput, simplicity and redundancy, no systemic impact, maximized AS/RS Performance.
Shuttle cars are pallet transport systems used to connect different areas of an automated storage system.
Rectilinear shuttles can be used to fast-feed pallets into and out of an automated warehouse or they may also be used to feed multiple order picking stations. Rectilinear shuttles can also be used for transport routes where there is crossing forklift truck traffic (rail sunk into floor).
PALLET TRANSPORT SYSTEMS
The function of pallet transport systems is to provide a continuous flow of materials, and is a compatible interface with any type of material handling equipment and manual operations.
Pallet transport systems can easily and efficiently handle exceptional workloads and any fluctuations in material flow within the warehouse.
The main benefits of the pallet transport systems are:
- High throughput rates
- The possibility of handling loads with different weights and dimensions
- No line pressure
- Simple, quiet, reliable operation
- Easy maintenance
