HOW THE PALLET MOLE WORKS：
Powered by on-board rechargeable batteries, the Pallet Mole is driven on rails, into a specially designed racking system of tunnels. Using the lifting platform and positioning sensors, each load is then transported to the furthest available storage location in the tunnel. Storage and retrieval are both conveniently operated by the forklift truck driver using a remote control.
ADVANTAGES OF USING THE Pallet Mole:
Lower cost per pallet stored compared to otherhigh density storage methods.
Batch FIFO of LIFO operation possible.
Less product damage.
More SKU’S can be stored compared to Block Stack storage.
Planning flexibility: the Pallet Mole can be configured to handle a variety of sizes and types of loads whilst also having the ability to store different types of goods on different levels and in different tunnels.
With the latest technology in compact, high density vertical storage, the Pallet Mole maximizes the use of floor area and warehouse capacity.
Often production facilities need to store pallets of goods in the most compact way possible. The goal is usually to maximize the use of floor space; and in the case of cold storage, the more compact the goods are stacked, the better the efficiency and ease of temperature control.
SMS has developed an innovative new, high density storage system to meet these storage demands. Our new product, Pallet Mole, enables “aisle free” racking to provide a much higher density of storage than drive in racking, double deep storage and conventional VNA storage.
AC Regenerative Braking Control: Ensuring reduced operating & maintenance cost together with enhanced battery efficiency.
