AUTOSAT® is an automatic shuttle able to move within the drive-in channels offering a 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, feature few aisles so to optimize the ratio benefit/costs.
Storage method utilized in the food and pharmaceutical industries due to a precise management of expiry dates. It favours the picking of pallets containing goods produced earlier, hence stored as first. AUTOSAT® cooperates in this function allowing storage from one front and picking from the opposite of the racking system. It is necessary therefore, the two fronts of the racks to be free to allow storage and picking.
Storage method for goods which do not have expiry dates, so the option First Stocked, First picked is not necessary, unless otherwise requested by the client. AUTOSAT® cooperates 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.
