The Shuttle XP VLM works according to the principle of "goods to person". The required tray is always positioned at an ergonomic height. The VLM delivers the stored goods in optimized sequences to minimize machine runtimes.
The Shuttle XP VLM offers high capacity storage in a small footprint. Compared with conventional methods, the system requires a footprint that is up to 85 percent smaller. On an area of only 108 square feet (10 square meters), it provides up to 21,527 square feet (2,000 square meters) of storage space.
High transport speeds in highly dense warehouses require corresponding safety elements. When it comes to active or passive safety for personnel, machine or stock items – the Shuttle XP VLM offers maximum protection without compromise. Core elements of the safety system include the automatic shutter door in the rear of the access opening and the light barrier in front of the access opening.
Optimal and flexible – CubeStar technology ensures the best capacity utilization. The height of each tray is scanned and trays are stored in 1 inch (25 millimeters) increments. This allows goods of different heights to be stored with minimal spacing to maximize storage density within the unit resulting in maximum flexibility.
Increase Picking Speed: Optimized picking sequences minimize machine travel times and increase picking speed.
Space Savings: One inch tray storage using CubeStar Technology reclaims up to 85% of otherwise wasted floor space compared to conventional storage products.
Time Savings: Stored goods are automatically presented to the operator, eliminating walk and search time and increasing productivity up to 2/3.
Worker Safety: An OSHA friendly design eliminates the need for bending, reaching, stretching and climbing; providing a safer work environment.
Product Security: Shutter doors at every access opening keep stored goods physically secured. With optional software, transactions can be tracked and reported by user.
Higher Pick Accuracy: Integrating pick to light technology, bar code scanning and software increase accuracy up to 99.9%.
Flexibility: The ability to program each individual tray - slower speeds for sensitive goods, dedicated storage locations for faster moving goods, variable weight capacity, restrict user access to specific trays - provides storage flexibility.
