The Orbiter docking station and the Orbiter shuttle vehicle form a single unit that can be moved throughout the warehouse. The docking Station is equipped with a centering bracket allowing automatic alignment and positioning of the pallet.
The forklift picks up the docking station with the shuttle vehicle and inserts the unit Into the centering console of the desired rack location. The forklifts then pick up pallets and position them onto the channel rails.
While the forklift driver picks up the next pallet to be stored, the shuttle system conveys the pallet quickly and safely into the desired storage location.
The driving commands are communicated to the shuttle vehicle via wireless remote control. Using Radio Frequency (RF), Orbiters provide a more efficient and cost effective solution than traditional racking systems.
The Orbiter System is designed for an environment with medium to low SKU counts and a high throughput volume in either FILO (First In- Last Out) or FIFO (First In- First Out) mode.Learn more about this product.
