Satellite Racking

The Stow Atlas® satellite racking system is a deep lane pallet storage and retrieval system. It consists of a carrier shuttle used to move pallets within a specifically designed racking structure, thus optimising the pallet storage capacity.

The pallet shuttle is a self-powered device that runs on rails in the storage lanes for the loading and unloading of pallets. It is transported to its location at the front or the back of a lane (or the back in the case of double sided applications) by a standard forklift. Once at its home position, the shuttle performs the loading and unloading tasks without any human intervention.

These tasks are instructed by the fork lift driver using a remote control. Once the tasks are completed the shuttle returns to its home position and is then ready to be transported to a new location for a new task. Each shuttle unit has rechargeable batteries and is transferred between different storage tunnels by a standard fork lift truck.

This automated storage system guarantees the highest possible storage density.  Picking speed and performance can be increased by introducing additional pallet shuttles into the racking system.
