New satellite storage system
Offering all the advantages of a high-density storage system but with none of the disadvantages, HiLo-PSS Group’s new satellite storage and retrieval system is a versatile and highly effective system for reducing handling time and increasing overall productivity. Requiring no special handling equipment, the state-of-the-art Satellite System makes efficient use of an existing forklift truck fleet.
Offering maximum warehouse floor and cube utilisation, the Satellite System is operated remotely via a Radio Frequency (RF) battery operated control system and special channel rails. When positioned in the selected aisle and started by the operator using the RF control, the HiLo-PSS Satellite System stores or retrieves loads in handling sequences as either First-In-First-Out (FIFO) or First-In-Last-Out (FILO) thereby providing automatic stock rotation.
Offering increased access and throughput rates, the Satellite System can work up to 20 hours before it needs recharging. In auto-mode, the System can be left to automatically stack whilst the forklift truck driver continues other operations with other satellites. The satellite has an indicator to show when charging is required, which prevents the unit from running out of power whilst in use.
