Shuttle systems or ‘shuttle robots’ automatically store and retrieve goods in warehouse racking. Enhancing storage capacity, these highly dynamic systems are designed for high throughput rates and often operate 24/7. In this new video, igus presents a shuttle system made using its products for moving boxed goods to and from the shelving area.
The drylin SLW linear guides adjust automatically to handle boxes with different dimensions. Counter rotating dryspin leadscrew units with E2.1 readychain combine to drive the telescopic handling mechanism that picks the box off the shelf.
All igus motion plastics offer the same excellent advantages: they are lightweight, maintenance-free, lubrication-free and, of course, reliable.
