The first pallets stored are also the first ones to be removed (FIFO). The pallet dynamic flow racks – also known as ‘pallet live storage’ – also play an important role as buffer warehouses for incoming goods and shipping.

            The storage is usually accessed using front loaders and reach trucks along with manual pallet trucks for the lowest level. Dynamic flow racks work via gravity alone and do not require any electrical components. Supply and removal are clearly separated, improving the organization. In addition, our pallet dynamic flow racks can also be easily integrated into an automated material flow, making them a suitable option for fully automated warehouses.

        • Channel storage system

        • Channel storage systems consist of multiple storage positions set behind each other in channels, creating a dense storage medium. The storage is accessed using channel vehicles which put goods into, and remove them from, storage. Compared with pallet racks, dynamic flow racks, automated miniload systems or high bay warehouses, channel storage systems make significantly higher use of the available space. Channel storage systems are utilised wherever the storage space itself needs to be minimized. The channel storage technology is ideal for a small range of items with large volumes such as in the beverage or food industry. This system is also a good choice in environments involving energy-intensive temperature control.
              • Schaefer Orbiter® System

              • The Schaefer Orbiter® System provides automated pallet handling and maximizes channel storage efficiency
                The Schaefer Orbiter® System consists of the special steel construction for the channel storage system, a channel vehicle, also known as the shuttle vehicle, and the corresponding docking station. The rack channels, in which the shuttle system is utilized, are equipped with a centering bracket at the front.

                The shuttle vehicle and docking station are inserted into the patented centering bracket of the desired rack channel by a forklift. The centering bracket prevents incorrect positioning and material damage while also saving time. This is a major advantage, especially on the upper levels. The stackers then take the storage pallet and place it on the Orbiter® which transports it to the next available space in the channel.

                Pallet movements in the channel system are completed in line with the FILO and FIFO principles. With the first in-last out (FILO) approach, the pallets are only stored and removed from one side of the rack. In contrast, the first in-first out (FIFO) principle enables the stored pellets to also be removed from the opposite side of the rack. The fully automatic reorganization of the channel ensures that the continuous supply complies with the FIFO logic.

                While the Schaefer Orbiter® stores the pallets, the stacker can simultaneously pick up the next pallet in order to resupply the system. You benefit from exceptional time savings and the corresponding increase in efficiency.
          • Shelf-Retrieval machines (SRM)

              • Schaefer Lift&Run (SLR)

              • The Schaefer Lift&Run (SLR) system from SSI SCHAEFER is an economical solution for highly dynamic pallet handling in channel storage systems.

                The SLR storage device is typically utilized for storing and retrieving pallets up to a storage height of 8 meters and can serve two to four rack levels per aisle. It is equipped with a shuttle car with a lifting unit for the extremely flexible Orbiter load handling device.

                In contrast to conventional storage-retrieval machines, it runs on two rails and does not require an upper guide rail as a result. Using multiple devices, one above the other, easily enables the creation of high bay warehouses with a height of up to 45 meters. The pallets are supplied and removed via vertical lifts. The SSI SCHAEFER twin-boom SLR transfers the pallets laterally onto its pallet truck. The Orbiter satellite is responsible for storing and removing the pallets from the rack channel. Together, Schaefer Lift&Run and the lifts create the Schaefer Lift&Run system which significantly enhances your throughput.

                                        The Batch Pick ’n Scan Sorter from SSI SCHAEFER is an option for companies to rapidly enhance the capacity and efficiency of their picking. This system can automatically record and check the articles picked using the efficient batch pick method with 1D and 2D barcode reading and then divide them up into customer orders.

                                        It consists of four areas. At the output station, the picked products are manually placed on a V-shaped conveyor belt. After separation, they pass through the Schäfer Scan Machine at a speed of 2.0 m/s where cameras scan every product from all 6 sides.

                                        After the information has been processed and analyzed, the individual articles are placed on gondolas along with the sorter before they are delivered to the order containers or cartons at the sorting destinations. The versatility of the sorter and its high throughput of 4,500 items/hour makes it an ideal solution for a variety of different areas, tasks and industries. Whether used for incoming goods, returns, or sorting, the system’s only limitation is that the products are not spherical and their dimensions do not exceed 260 x 180 x 180 mm.

                                        The sorting delivery and supply are specifically adapted to the nature of the articles being transported and these processes are optimized to fulfill the customer’s operational requirements.

                                        The Parallel Picking System is a picking system for parallel, manual, person-to-goods order processing. The same articles are picked for multiple orders and distributed among the individual orders at the filling module. This system supports and optimizes your picking processes, increases productivity, and guarantees short cycle times.

                                        Your picking operators receive all necessary information via radio-frequency terminals (RF terminal) to locate the desired articles in the article containers and transfer them to the filling module. The RF terminal is worn on the arm and connected to the ring scanner. The order data is read directly from the display and confirmed on the RF terminal. The information is transferred wirelessly to the line computer via the access point. In addition to radio-frequency terminals, Pick by Voice or Pick by Light systems can also be utilized to support the picking process.

                                        The Pick to Bucket work station from SSI SCHAEFER is designed for high performance picking of droppable articles combined with the gentlest possible handling. The goods-to-person system retrieves the stored articles using plastic containers.

                                        The storage containers are delivered via the conveying section and are then stopped centrally. The removal location (with up to 8 locations per storage container) is indicated by container location lights. A central display shows the picker the quantity to remove. The picker removes the articles and places them in the corresponding bucket.

                                        The delivery is assisted by a Put to Light system. Once the order is complete, the bucket containing the pre-picked goods is opened and the articles fall onto a central collection conveyor. This conveyor transports the articles to an automatic filling point.

                                        • Problems of conventional storage systems
                                          Conventional storage systems are limited by the restricted number of lifts. This results in bottlenecks during storage and retrieval. As a consequence, the number of transfer spaces is restricted and the movement processes can only be decoupled along the horizontal and vertical axes to a limited extent.

                                          However, increasing performance through the use of shuttles in the aisles creates major bottlenecks on the conveyor loops in the pre-zone. Sequencing is required to overcome this and it is only possible through the use of additional, and subsequently installed, sequencing systems.

                                          The flexible and revolutionary innovation
                                          The matrix consists of three key system components: Shuttle vehicles, lifts and conveying systems. The shuttle vehicles work on the x-axis in the depth of the storage channels. Lift systems provide vertical transport on the y-axis. The conveyor systems handle the horizontal transport on the z-axis and supply the goods directly to the connected picking or dispatch work stations. All movements which the transport devices perform within the storage facility are consistently separated on the x, y and z-axes. This enables them all to be carried out in parallel.

                                            • Incoming goods work stations form the interface between the internal and external goods supply. The goods are delivered, inspected, prepared for storage and then repacked in standard containers.

                                              When the goods arrive they are transferred sideways from an electrically height-adjustable pallet station to the worktable. Their bar codes are scanned to record the data in the warehousing system with its graphical menu display. Then the goods are transferred to the storage containers. The containers are pushed onto a conveyor belt, which is positioned at the same height as the table, for transport to their storage location. An additional conveyor belt located above transports the empty cartons away. Integrated waste containers for plastic and general refuse, along with ergonomic, fatigue-dampening mats complete the incoming goods workstations.

                                              High turnover, low stress
                                              This workstation model is designed to reduce the stress on your employees, despite high goods processing volumes. The ergonomic optimization enables efficient warehousing of a variety of different articles with high performance storage placement while also ensuring the safest possible handling of products. The SSI SCHAEFER work stations can be adapted to the people who use them, not the other way round. That is why productivity increases of up to 20% can be achieved with our system.
