MATERIAL HANDLING SOLUTIONS

Kardex Material Handling Solutions specialise in computer controlled automated storage and retrieval systems for manufacturing, assembly, distribution, retailing and many more. The range of products is extremely wide, but all have one common aim - that is the pursuit of excellence.

The introduction of Kardex's solutions will enable all companies to make substantial efficiency savings in the way that they handle, store and retrieve inventory. Applications are far reaching, including solutions for industries such as aerospace, automotive, distribution, electronics, retail, manufacturing, e-commerce, government, healthcare, metal working and tooling (to name only a few).

Vertical Lift Systems

Kardex Material Handling Solutions specialise in computer controlled automated storage and retrieval systems for manufacturing, assembly, distribution and retailing. The range of products is extremely wide, but all have one common aim - that is the pursuit of excellence.

The Kardex Shuttle® is a computer controlled automated vertical lift, storage and retrieval system.

Like most successful products it has been improved through new version releases and is now on its fourth generation model, having recently introduced new technologies and materials to ensure that the technology onboard remains at the forefront of automated logistics solutions.

Functionally, stock within the Shuttle® remains stationary on front and rear tray locations.

On request a movable extractor unit travels vertically between the two columns of trays and pulls the requested pallet from its location and brings it to an access point.

The operator then picks or replenishes stock and the tray is returned to its home.
 

Shuttle® XP

The Kardex Shuttle® XP is a high density and dynamic vertical lift system.

Your solution when you want high density storage, unrestricted flexibility in height and increased order picking productivity

The Shuttle® XP is a high density and dynamic vertical lift system.

The Shuttle® XP builds upon the tremendous success of the previous Shuttle® NT model.

It is built to maximise on your ceiling height with units available up to 30 metres high. One unit can carry a gross load of 60 tonnes or more.

The Shuttle® XP is a fully automated and intelligent product which will simultaneously measure, weigh and allocate products to be stored in the most space efficient location within the Shuttle®.


Combined with the Kardex software PowerPick® 5000 you will be able to maximize the efficient use of your inventory giving details of availability, transactional history, and space utilisation to boost your productivity increase even further.

Benefits

The Kardex Shuttle® XP presents stock to the operator on the goods to man principle. The correct tray will be brought by the extractor to the access level. Software will tell the operator how many items to pick. Stock will also be sorted into an optimum picking sequence minimizing machine travel time . Anticipated improvements in picking speeds are four-fold.

Increased Picking Speed - The Kardex Shuttle® XP presents stock to the operator on the goods to man principle. The correct tray will be brought by the extractor to the access level. Software will tell the operator how many items to pick. Stock will also be sorted into an optimum picking sequence minimizing machine travel time. Anticipated improvements in picking speeds are four-fold.

Saving Space - The Kardex Shuttle® XP has an extremely high capacity within the smallest of foot print. Floor space savings of 80% will be typical when compared with conventional storage products.

Saving Time - The system delivers the selected tray to the access position in a matter of seconds. Lengthy periods of time wasted searching for stock are a thing of the past.


Health and Safety - The HSE guidelines on manual handling are comprehensive and clearly make employers responsible for introducing automation where possible to avoid the risks associated with manual handling. We estimate that 80% of the physical effort associated with manual systems will be eliminated by the introduction of a Kardex Shuttle® XP.

Better Protection - The contents of the Shuttle® XP are protected against dust and unauthorized access. The units have internal shutter doors and additional options include PIN access control, fire protection and environmental temperature control.

Software & Controls - Successful installations have at their heart a fully integrated Kardex software package linking the Shuttle® XP to their host IT systems ensuring that maximum benefits can be derived from this integrated approach.
