The right OSR Shuttle™ Evo for your process
We have the right shuttle system to meet all your requirements. If you need a real powerhouse, OSR Shuttle™ Evo 1D is the right choice for you, as there is only one shuttle per level. If you’re looking for more flexibility in designing your processes, however, OSR Shuttle™ Evo 2D is right up your alley. The shuttles in the 2D system can change rack line systems, allowing them to access all the lifts on that level. With this approach, performance and the number of storage locations can be scaled independently of one another. In addition, our shuttle systems allow items to be retrieved from the rack line system in the exact sequence required. The special system design makes efficient one-touch fulfillment a reality, with every work station being able to access every item.
