According to viastore, the investment in an automated pallet store (APS) offers the customer many advantages. They not only make their own production processes more efficient and safer. Above all, throughput, transparency and thus profitability increase. A high degree of transparency means that stocks can be flexibly adjusted to the actual needs of a company. At the heart of every APS are the SRUs, which ensure fast and flexible warehouse logistics. They must function absolutely reliably at all times, guarantee high availability and be easy to operate.
In the case of vertical energy chain applications, the masts are becoming higher and higher, the travels longer and longer, and all this at high speeds and enormous rates of acceleration. It can quickly happen that – in the event of sudden lateral acceleration – the energy chain swings out to the side, in the direction of the shelf construction. If it then bangs against metal beams or pallets as well, a chain break is destined to happen given the violence of the movement.
Energy supply systems of the E2/000 series are currently proving their functional reliability in the storage specialists' SRUs. They are openable along the inner radius. This has advantages especially in case of service, for a defective cable can be replaced very quickly. The variable interior separation, a long service life thanks to high mechanical stability, quiet running, a variety of fastening options and easy and versatile installation are further plus points.
With guidelok slimline (SL) the energy chain always stays safely on track on the mast and at tower heights of 40 m and more. Sven Wehrle, viastore: "We find this new system to be a convincing solution. It is used for all our storage and retrieval units today. We have calculated that, as a result, we save around 50% installation time for the energy supply system. " For this reason, guidelok slimline will be considered not only for new systems but also for retrofits.
Pre-assembled energy supply systems are also used in the RGBs to increase efficiency and improve technology.
Openable along the inner radius. Replace defective cables quickly. Long service life due to high mechanical stability
Especially for narrow lanes. Guide energy supply systems safely even at very high speeds.
"For more than 15 years we have been working together as partners. For example, viastore has been using pre-assembled energy supply systems for years, which are delivered directly to the machine on time. They are then simply installed there," reports Wehrle.
