Dexion Auto Shuttle
The Dexion Auto Shuttle runs along rails in high density storage racks to store and retrieve pallets. They do this by moving full pallet loads in and out of the storage structure.
The Auto Shuttle is manually placed in the designated rack position by a forklift, after which the cart operates automatically by remote control or RF. The Auto Shuttle deposits and retrieve pallets within the system as required enabling forklift operators free to focus on bringing pallet loads to and from the racking face. Sensors along the storage channel determine where it must stop, deposit or retrieve the load and return. Shuttles are ideal for applications with low SKU where there is a high movement rate of pallets. They can be configured for FIFO (first-in/first-out) or LIFO (last-in/first-out) operation. Our Auto Shuttle is an advanced shuttle system that brings greater efficiency to multi-deep pallet handling in a high density environment.
