The storage systems for pallets, IBC’s, containers, drums and other types of goods delivered by Amtra can be divided in two main types.
A single level storage system is designed to store goods on conveyors mounted on the main floor. A shunter or push-over system can be implemented to store separate product batches in designated lanes.
A multi level storage system is used to store goods on several levels. Elevators are being used to transport the goods between levels. Two different drive principles can be used in the storage lanes depending on capacity and type of goods. The first principle is based on driven lanes and the second principle is based on battery-driven satellite shunters transporting products from a fixed lane position. In both situations the main shunter retrieves the goods and runs between the main aisle and the elevators.
