NA 2010: Kit adjusts pick window of automated storage system for flexibility

By Modern Materials Handling Staff
March 01, 2010

NA 2010, slated for April 26-29, will showcase more than 500 exhibits and include a comprehensive educational conference. The event, held at the I-X Center in Cleveland, will offer an array of products to help improve productivity at your company.

A pre- or post-installation pick window modification kit for the Shuttle vertical lift module helps companies quickly meet changing product characteristics, warehousing requirements or business needs. The unit’s modular construction and rail panel componentry allows the number of pick windows, their size and location to be changed at any time. Changing pick window height allows storage of bulky items, while moving a pick window location links work areas to facilitate materials sharing. The VLM is comprised of vertically arranged trays, an ergonomically positioned extraction platform, and computerized controls for automated retrieval of stored materials.
