Orbiter Pallet Shuttle
The Orbiter System is a deep channel storage system ideal for high volume, low sku count applications. By eliminating aisle space within the system, storage capacity may be increased 100% within the existing footprint.
Pallet movements flow in the channel system as per the FILO and FIFO principles. With the first in-last out (FILO) approach, the pallets are only stored and removed from one side of the rack. In contrast, the first in-first out (FIFO) principle enables the stored pellets to also be removed from the opposite side of the rack. The fully automatic reorganization of the channel ensures that the continuous supply complies with the FIFO logic.
While the Orbiter stores the pallets, the operator can simultaneously pick up the next pallet in order to resupply the system. Organizations benefit from exceptional time savings and workflow efficiency.
