Specifically designed for the efficient Storage and Retrieval of ULDs and Air Cargo Pallets. All vehicle movements are guided by the Inventory Control System with a possibility of operator override manual mode. The ETV is built on a central rail system between the high-bay storage aisles, with a lifting platform designed for 10, 15 and 20ft powered roller decks with an operator cabin. The storage, transfer, sorting and retrieval of cargo between the warehouse and the airside is fully automated with interfaces to the airline and WMS.
Transfer Vehicles (TV)
Transfer vehicles are the traditional rail mounted prime movers for transporting, storing and retrieving cargo horizontally on a single level. The ULDs are moved on and off the racking by interconnecting the integrated roller conveyor with external roller decks. ALS transfer vehicles have three operating modes: maintenance, semi-automated and fully automated. Our TV can also transport two containers simultaneously
Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS)
The ASRS is designed for the computerized storage and retrieval of goods in the cargo and distribution facilities where space is limited and efficiency and high throughput is required. ALS storage and retrieval machines are available in one or two mast design for single, double or multi deep storage. All our ASRS installations have two storage and retrieval machines per aisle for redundancy and high stock turnover.
Conveyors and Portals
Portals measures and captures the level, the volume, the appearance and the weight of the cargo in a continuous process. It can be installed in flush-mounted chain systems in which trucks are used for transportation. This is a flexible and modular concept with flexibility that allows easy installation in new and existing plants. The identification of the parcels can be measured via automatic or manual barcode reading on transponders (RFID) or via a direct connection to the material flow control of the conveyor system.
Our workstation enables efficient build-up and breakdown of 10, 15 and 20ft ULDs. They are installed in the breakdown area and placed in a way to optimize the access with the vehicles. The workstation consists of 10ft Roller-Decks built on a scissors lift with reinforced bearings and rollers with a thickness of the wall of 4 mm. This system is equipped with a weighing scale registering the load on the platform with an accuracy of +/- 5kg. In addition, the weighing scale control allows having information keyed-in, like authorization code for tag printing, etc.
For an efficient build-up and breakdown of main deck Pallets catering for Pallets and ULDs which are stored on warehouse slave pallets. Workstations are designed for drive-over handling in order to optimize the vehicles’ access and are controlled via foot-control panel located on the floor.
The truck dock consists of roller decks integrated with a tandem hydraulic scissors lift mounted on a rail vehicle. This allows unloading of vehicles/trucks of different heights at different loading positions. This system incorporates a weighing facility in the form of a scale and a display being located in the operators’ cabin. The scale is designed and calibrated on hand-over. The Truck Dock area can be connected to the warehouse system via different solutions.
ULD and Goods’ Lifts
Pallet Hoists are designed to utilize the available vertical space in the warehouse with no additional requirements of civil works. By installing the lifts, we create an additional work or storage level which leads to maximum utilization of the warehouse space. The flexible and versatile design ensures a user friendly interface between the different warehouse levels at various lifting capacity.
