Using mobile shuttles between the different storage rows many different types of product can be stored.

The system is made of simple though sophisticated modules. This ensures the system has a competitive price, low and simple maintenance with a high reliability.

Both FIFO and shuffling of the pallets are possible at high capacities.

A Hetrix system contains three standard module types; A buffer chain conveyor, shuttle and a vertical conveyor. The main characteristics are as follows;

Buffer conveyor

  • Transports the pallets forwards and backwards.
  • Pallets rest on two or three duplex chains, depending on the weight and shape of the pallet.
  • The conveyor runs in two directions.
  • Depending on the length and pallet dimensions a certain quantity of pallets can be buffered on the conveyor.
  • By automatically detecting the contours of the pallets, a free space around the pallets is maintained to avoid damage.
  • The execution of the drive and the total load of the conveyor determines the speed and therefore the capacity of the system.
  • Maximum length is 13,5 meters per conveyor.
  • Buffer conveyors are used for storage.

Shuttle

  • Transports the pallets sideways.
  • By automatically detecting the contours of the pallet, the pallet is precisly positioned on the shuttle.
  • Pallets rest on three duplex chains.
  • The shuttle automatically starts and stops at the correct location.
  • The execution of the drive and the load of the pallet determines the speed and therefore the capacity of the system.
  • Maximum reach of 80 meters per shuttle.
  • Using more shuttles there is no maximum width.
  • Located between storage rows to be able to access all positions directly.
  • Double or triple constructions are possible to increase the capacity for storage and retrieving

Vertical conveyor

  • Transports the pallets in the vertical direction to different layers.
  • By automatically detecting the contours of the pallet, the pallet is precisly positioned on the shuttle
  • Pallets rest on three duplex chains.
  • The lift module automatically starts and stops at the correct location.
  • Maximum reach of 15 meters high.
  • Elevator conveyors are used for high capacity storage and retrieval.

To construct the modules in the desired formation, a multi level steel construction with ladders and grids is used.

To bring life into the system a WMS (Warehouse Management System) is integrated. This software enables all the required operational data and information to be automatically monitored. Information such as product contents, expiry dates, amount of (remaining) colli’s per pallet and location of specific pallets are just a few examples within the possibilities of a WMS.

1000+1 possibilities with the Hetrix System
The Hetrix System offers a wide variety of possibilities. It enables us to ‘compose’ a custom built system by combining the standard main modules. The composition will be dictated by:

  • The actual warehouse dimensions
  • The required storage capacity
  • The processing speed and the annual turnover of the stock
  • The loading and unloading location
  • The product handling procedure
  • The range of product assortment to store

Different standards of all sizes are available to give a quick and global idea about the possibilities and costs.
