Kardex has produced the latest generation of its flexible automated storage and retrieval system.
The Kardex Shuttle XP is a vertical lift-based storage solution designed to minimise floor space, speed picking, and provide added security and safety for the user. The new generation system is capable of carrying a payload of up to 60 tonnes and can rotate trays at up to 2.2 metres per second.
Unlike conventional storage systems, the computer-controlled unit can detect the height of items placed within and automatically allocate storage space to maximise internal capacity. Operating on the principle of ‘goods-to-man’ the system minimises picking time and gives the operator excellent stock control.
