Flexibility in every aspect

SSI Schaefer, one of the global market leaders and innovators in the intralogistics sector, continues to expand its comprehensive shuttle portfolio for small load carriers with the innovative SSI Flexi Shuttle. Powered by supercapacitors, the innovative single-level shuttle system can handle a variety of stored goods with a capacity of up to 50kg, thanks to the adjustable-width load handling device. The unique feature of this system is the dynamically adaptable storage location sizes according to the dimensions of the stored goods. This feature is possible thanks to flexible positioning in the racking system.

The single-level shuttle is designed for use in highly dynamic automated miniload systems with a wide variety of stored goods. It combines the technology of the SSI Schaefer shuttle portfolio with the broad industry knowhow of SSI Schaefer’s intralogistics experts and stands out due to its high level of flexibility over the entire product life cycle.

With the SSI Flexi Shuttle, SSI Schaefer is not only offering an innovative solution, but also a modular concept, which combines shuttles, lifts, and a racking system. It allows the creation of bespoke systems with outstanding use of space.

The system is suitable for single, double and multiple-deep storage with variable height and width partitions up to an aisle length of 150m and a height of up to 30m. Having a comprehensive system that can efficiently store a broad spectrum of loading units and dimensions in a space optimised manner is a significant advantage. The ability to handle a range of loading units with dimensions of up to 860 x 680mm is guaranteed by a universal load handling device, which is adjustable in width. Within one racking system it is possible to efficiently and safely store a mixture of cubic and conical bins (totes), cartons and trays weighing up to 50kg.

The new, fully automated, high performance shuttle plays an important part not only in sustainably increasing energy efficiency, but also in optimising costs throughout the entire logistics chain when analysing the total cost of ownership (TCO). The integration of supercapacitors as an energy source guarantees maximum performance density at the highest levels of technical performance. They also function as temporary energy-storage units whilst energy is recovered during braking processes.

“The new SSI Flexi Shuttle will be an important addition to our shuttle family, helping to increase the market coverage of our fully automated storage systems,” explains Peter Berlik. Whether single-level or multi-level solutions for the handling of pallets, trays, cartons, or bins (totes), the scope of SSI Schaefer shuttle systems is comprehensive and fits perfectly into almost any modern warehouse. Thanks to an extensive shuttle portfolio, the intralogistics experts can create an optimised storage solution with fast materials transport and short access times. ENDS
