Vanderlande Industries Launches New Energy Efficient and Economical AS/RS

Vanderlande Industries has launched its QUICKSTORE Microshuttle, an automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) belonging to Vanderlande’s QUICKSTORE line of miniloads, shuttles and load-handling devices. These shuttles can move between different levels within the racking via a lift and provide a cost-effective and energy-efficient solution particularly for low to medium throughput applications.

An important advantage of the Microshuttle is scalability. As throughput requirements increase, the system can be expanded with additional shuttles. The shuttles feature wireless communication and have “on-board energy” through the use of capacitors. This ensures the shuttles can operate autonomously without the need for power rails in the aisles.

The QUICKSTORE Microshuttle was uniquely designed to be a lightweight, energy-efficient and cost-effective system. Its lightweight design means fewer material costs and less energy consumption. Energy-efficient operation is ensured by always using the optimal combination of motor performance, acceleration and speed. Plus, braking energy is used to reload the capacitors.
High accessibility and availability are two additional benefits of a QUICKSTORE Microshuttle system. Each location in the racking can always be reached manually and should a shuttle need service, it can easily be removed from the system while the other shuttles take over storage and retrieval. This creates a redundant system with high availability.
