Advantages of Uni-Shuttle HP

Improved Inventory Turnover Rate

  • Continuously sorts and stores parts and products from various suppliers or production processes with its best in class storage capabilities.
  • Sorts and stores rapidly and smoothly with its flexible and efficient storage capabilities that handle various load sizes and rack locations.
  • Provides just-in-time retrieval of necessary parts and products with its fastest-in-class shuttles and retrieval equipment working in tandem.
  • Easily handles individualized and same-day distribution needs with a system optimized for small-lot, highthroughput replenishment and retrieval operations.

Improved Logistics Quality

  • Rapidly and continuously retrieves parts and products in the order specified, whether by individual buyer or by position in the shipping queue.
  • Efficient sequential retrieval capability eliminates the need for post-retrieval sorting of parts and products according to production process, buyer or shipping truck loading order.
  • The flexible unloading process provides the added ability to retrieve products organized according to highly specific criteria, such as buyer’s product category, storage aisle or production process, including ideal sequential arrangement of goods for put away on the buyers side.

Uni-SHUTTLE HP is a “High-Performance Automated Storage/Retrieval System,” combining a multi-level storage rack system with shuttles running independently on each level and the optional configuration of “Space Storage” or vertical conveyors as its storage/retrieval equipment.
