NA 2010: Semi-automated pallet storage

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.

The semi-automated Pallet Runner Gen 3 high density storage system uses a heavy duty, four-wheel drive cart to transport pallets to and from the loading unloading position. Using an existing lift truck fleet, the system easily adapts to current facility conditions to increase throughput, storage density and productivity while decreasing operating costs, operators and cubic footage used to store pallets. A single cart can move more than 40 pallets per hour. Flexible, the system can be converted to a fully automated system as needs grow.
