The radio shuttle car is an intelligent robot that can be programmed to complete tasks such as picking up, transporting, and placing goods, and can communicate with the host computer or WMS system. It combines RFID (radio frequency identification devices), barcodes and other identification technologies to realize automatic identification, access, and other functions.
The radio shuttle rack system combines traditional racks with high-precision guide rails, allowing the shuttle to run smoothly on them. The guide rails also undertake the functions of cargo transportation and cargo storage, thereby greatly improving the utilization of storage space.
The warehousing radio shuttle rack system was invented by the Swedish company EAB. Because the forklift does not need to drive into the shelf to access the goods, it is completed by the shuttle. The forklift channel is eliminated, so it can achieve very high space utilization.
The warehousing radio shuttle rack system can realize various operating methods such as first-in-first-out (FIFO) and first-in-last-out (FILO).
In principle, a warehousing radio shuttle rack system can only place one kind of goods (SKU) in one lane. For special applications (access at both ends, FILO), one lane can place two kinds of goods. Therefore, this system is more suitable for single products and a large quantity of goods.
The mother car and the stacker car: The mother car runs on the transverse track automatically identifies the working lane and releases the child car for access operations, which improves the automation of the system to a certain extent.
Cooperation with stackers:
Automated three-dimensional warehouses can also use shuttles to improve storage utilization. The stackers automatically identify the shuttles and allocate operating lanes. The shuttles pick up the goods in the lanes, and then the stacker completes the entry and exit of the warehouse. Operations, realizing fully automatic entry and exit and system management.
The multi-directional shuttle can run on horizontal and vertical tracks. The horizontal movement and access of goods are only completed by one shuttle, which greatly improves the automation of the system.
