Pallet Radio Shuttle Racking System
The pallet radio shuttle rack system consists of a supporting rack, shuttle rails, and a radio shuttle cart (also called pallet runner or pallet mole). The radio shuttle cart runs on the rails and is propelled by an electric motor. It also has a platform on the top that can lift up and down.
The lifting action is required to lift a pallet that is placed on the rail and then the electric motor moves the cart with the pallet on top into the rack in order to deposit the pallet in its right position.
When the pallet is required, the cart moves in under the pallet, lifts it, and brings it to the front of the rack where it can be retrieved by a forklift.
All the movements of the shuttle cart are controlled with handheld remote control. The shuttle cart is placed in the desired lane with a forklift.
