Shuttle XP 1000: Easy Handling of Heavy Loads

The new Shuttle XP 1000 allows companies with heavy goods to organize their work processes with more flexibility, efficiency and ergonomics.

Westbrook, ME, December 11, 2013 --( A new vertical lift module from Kardex Remstar can accommodate goods weighing up to 2,205lbs (1,000 kg) per tray. The Shuttle XP 1000 is the newest addition to the successful Shuttle XP vertical lift module series that includes the 250, 500 and 700 models. The new solution allows companies with heavy goods to organize their work processes with more flexibility, efficiency and ergonomics.

The Shuttle XP 1000 allows the simple and ergonomic storage of heavy tools and large goods as well as a large number of small parts per tray. Providing stronger, greater, further capacity is the new “Super Strong” tray, which can accommodate up to 2,205lbs (1,000 kg) with a width of 4.1ft (1,250 mm) and up to 1764lbs (800 kg) with a width of 13ft (4,000 mm). For ease of use, the new tray uses castors instead of conventional plastic sliding shoes. The storage system can be used by a wide range of sectors as a production buffer, to supply assembly lines, as a tool store or to distribute spare parts. Whether as a stand-alone solution or in combination with other machinery, fast access to the stored parts is guaranteed.

All models in the Shuttle XP series provide high density storage with which companies in all sectors can streamline their work processes. Fast access times and a clear overview of the inventory stock maximize efficiencies. Large storage capacity can be achieved in the smallest of floor spaces, reducing the space used for storage by up to 80%. Designed with the “goods to person” principle, the stored goods are brought from the extractor to the access opening where they can be ergonomically removed by the operator. All Shuttle XP models are fitted with Logicontrol as standard, the latest machine control system from Kardex Remstar. This can also be used for simple warehouse management. In addition, Logicontrol has interfaces which can be used to link it to superordinate ERP systems.
