Pallet manager

Wednesday, 19 January, 2005 | Supplied by: Storage Technology Ltd

Maxipacker is a robot for handling pallets in a high-density racking. Unlike other high-density racking where it is necessary to drive into the rack with the truck, Maxipacker can collect or stack the pallet.

It works via remote control using a radio transmitter via the truck. Photocells ensure that it always goes to the correct position in the channel. One or more Maxipackers can be controlled by the same radio transmitter.

All pallet management by truck takes place in the main aisle. This means that the rack can be made much deeper than an ordinary high-density racking. Furthermore, the truck doesn't need to stand and wait for the Maxipacker and is free to work elsewhere.

When picking, the Maxipacker is used together with roller conveyors - a combination where there is room for buffer pallets at the upper levels and for roller conveyors at the lowest level. All picking from pallets takes place from a picking corridor that passes through the rack.

With FIFO handling the Maxipacker is used in a throughput storage and the pallets are managed after the principle first in, first out.

The Maxipacker can also carry out a reorganisation of the pallets and when required move all pallets closer to the unloading point. The robot is also available as a combi where it is possible to handle two different dimensions of pallets, eg, pallet measurements 800 x 1200 and 1000 x 1200 mm.
