The Orbiter docking station and the Orbiter shuttle vehicle form a single unit that can be moved throughout the warehouse.
The Orbiter docking station and the Orbiter shuttle vehicle form a single unit that can be moved throughout the warehouse. The docking Station is equipped with a centering bracket allowing automatic alignment and positioning of the pallet.
The forklift picks up the docking station with the shuttle vehicle and inserts the unit Into the centering console of the desired rack location. The forklifts then pick up pallets and position them onto the channel rails.
The Schaefer Orbiter® System consists of the special steel construction for the channel storage system, a channel vehicle, also known as the shuttle vehicle, and the corresponding docking station. The rack channels, in which the shuttle system is utilized, are equipped with a centering bracket at the front.
The shuttle vehicle and docking station are inserted into the patented centering bracket of the desired rack channel by a forklift. The centering bracket prevents incorrect positioning and material damage while also saving time. This is a major advantage, especially on the upper levels. The stackers then take the storage palette and place it on the Orbiter® which transports into the next possible space in the channel.
