This solution increased the end-user’s productivity and efficiency with 95% space utilization and showcases the results of the long-standing alliance between Hannibal and Automha, Blanton Bartlett, Hannibal’s president, explained a Wednesday booth visit.
The solution included Hannibal Industries’ TubeRack, structural rack and Automha’s Semi-Automated Pallet Runner product. The final storage solution was a deep lane Pallet Runner system that was 14 pallets deep by four store levels high.
With each pallet being double stacked, the solution is able to store 28 pallets in 1-14 deep lane. With loads weighing 3,200 pounds, each lane stores 44,800 pounds. The solution allowed KTN to reach its goal of shipping 28 pallets per truckload.
The system makes good use of vertical space and allows for quick throughput, said Steve Dale, sales manager for Automha Americas Automation Corp., enabling an entire lane of 28 pallets to be loaded into a truck in approximately a half hour.
“We can build this type of deep-lane storage solution for anyone through this alliance,” said Bartlett. “These solutions also can be added on to. It’s modular, so these systems can adapt as needs change.”
Modex 2018 is scheduled to be held April 9-12 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the materials handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete coverage of the show.
