Automated modular archive system, Shuttle

Shuttle XP is an automated high bay warehousing system with a modular design operating on the "goods to person" principle.

Optimum storage density, flexible efficient storage strategies and safe fatigue-free working: the Shuttle XP combines unique specifications to produce one system that precisely meets individual requirements and conditions.

Optimized Storage Density

Using CubeStar technology, the height of each tray is measured as the tray is put away. The VLM high bay warehousing system stores trays in 25 millimeter increments; utilizing the least amount of space required and maximizing storage density within the unit. The user can assign the maximum storage height to every shelf if desired. An intelligent control system that moves at speeds of up to 2.3 meters a second allows controlled access to the stored goods.

Flexible Efficient Storage Strategy

The modular design of the Shuttle XP VLM ensures almost unlimited flexibility. The height can be chosen in 100 millimeter increments, so that the Shuttle XP VLM always optimizes the ceiling height. Even if you change locations or move to a different site, the VLM can be adapted quickly to the new height requirements by adding or removing modules.

Adapting To the Building Situation

When installed through several floors, access openings can be integrated at any point on the front or rear of the Shuttle XP VLM. They can even be changed at a later date. A shutter door in every access opening prevents draughts, reduces travel noise – and also protects the operators and stored goods.

Standalone or Integrated System

Every Shuttle XP VLM can be installed as a stand-alone system or expanded into an integrated system – for plan able expansion as a needs-related and manageable investment for the future.



Increase Picking Speed: Optimized picking sequences minimize machine travel times and increase picking speed.

Space Savings: One inch tray storage using CubeStar Technology reclaims up to 85% of otherwise wasted floor space compared to conventional storage products.

Time Savings: Stored goods are automatically presented to the operator, eliminating walk and search time and increasing productivity up to 2/3

Worker Safety: An OSHA friendly design eliminates the need for bending, reaching, stretching and climbing; providing a safer work environment.

Product Security: Shutter doors at every access opening keep stored goods physically secured. With optional software, transactions can be tracked and reported by user.

Higher Pick Accuracy: Integrating pick to light technology, bar code scanning and software increase accuracy up to 99.9%.

Flexibility: The ability to program each individual tray - slower speeds for sensitive goods, dedicated storage locations for faster moving goods, variable weight capacity, restrict user access to specific trays - provides storage flexibility.
