Under Pallet Carrier UPC

  • High throughput efficiency during complete filling or emptying of a pallet channel
  • Collision-free pallet storage and retrieval
  • Total system flexibility due to handling different pallet types
  • Optimum utilisation of building height through low racking compartment height
  • Operational with virtually any Jungheinrich stacker

Compact Storage Shuttle System

The Jungheinrich Compact Storage System with UPC (Under Pallet Carrier) – consisting of carrier, carrier truck and channel racking – facilitates optimum utilisation of storage space. UPC racking provides room in height and width for several pallet channels. The low height utilisation per channel level also allows effective use of the available storage height. Any Jungheinrich stacker with sufficient residual capacity can be used as carrier truck.

The UPC is particularly effective during repeated storage and retrieval in the same pallet channel – e.g. when buffering a large quantity of the same pallets. The UPC is put on the forks of the carrier truck and used in the pallet channel where it travels independently under the stored pallets without being connected to the carrier truck. After putting down the first pallet on the UPC rail in the racking channel and pressing the start button on the operating console, the process control carries out all necessary travel and lift movements independently. Sensors recognise the position of stored pallets. Storage and retrieval of new pallets then takes place with no danger of collision.

Operating terminal and process control communicate via bi-directional radio link run on the registration-free ISM band (433 MHz). The operator picks up another pallet while the carrier is travelling, puts it down at the channel start and a new work cycle can begin. Retrieval is carried out accordingly.
