AUTOSAT® is an automatic shuttle able to move within the drive-in channels, offering high density automated storage. Controlled by an interactive radio transmitter, AUTOSAT® is able to load, unload and arrange pallets into the drive-in channels. Moved by the traditional fork lift or automatically using AUTOSATMOVER ™, AUTOSAT® operates in every channel according to the FIFO (First in First out) and LIFO (Last in First out) procedures. One of the best uses for AUTOSAT® is in refrigerated warehouses where temperatures can reach down to -30°. In such an environment, storage systems have to maximise the number of pallets and minimize the number of aisles to optimize the cost/benefit ratio.
Storage method utilized in the food and pharmaceutical industries where precise management of expiry dates is required. It favours the picking of pallets containing goods produced earlier, hence stored as first. AUTOSAT® operates in this function allowing storage from the front and picking from the opposite end of the racking system. It is therefore necessary that the two faces of the racks are accessible to allow storage and picking.
Storage method for goods which do not have expiry dates, where ‘First Stocked’, ‘First Picked’ is not a requirement. AUTOSAT® operates in this function allowing storage and picking from the same side of the racking system. In this method only one side of the rack is needed.
