Oribiter by SSI SCHAEFER

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 palette and place it on the Orbiter® which transports into the next possible space in the channel. Pallet movements in the channel system as per 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. The system is also suitable for deep-freeze applications and can handle 100 different pallet types as per regional, national and international standards.
