PowerStore: High density shuttle system for pallet warehousing

Automation and Warehousing

The modularity of the PowerStore pallet shuttle system enables storage of up to 60% more pallets compared to manual systems. It can also be individually tailored for all shapes and sizes of warehouse buildings.


PowerStore pallet storage systems can be used in a wide range of environments, from -30°C in frozen food storage to 50°C. It can be used in buildings with unusual shapes. The modular design of the PowerStore system opens up completely new possibilities for automation in existing warehouses.


PowerStore is ideal for manufacturing businesses, especially those in the fast moving consumer goods and food and beverage industries.


Central to the system is a fleet of Swisslog AisleCarrier and RowCarrier red shuttle robots rolling along narrow tracks picking up and dropping off pallets, which ride conveyors between levels.


Essentially the AisleCarriers and RowCarriers each operate on a different axis on a 2D plane. For simplicity, let’s call them rows and columns. The RowCarriers travel across their row to retrieve pallets and deliver them to their destination – the transfer station. AisleCarriers move across each column, and can transport a RowCarrier – with our without a load – between the designated row and the vertical conveyor at the end.


At the end of the column is a vertical conveyor, which facilitates fast and effective movement of pallets between levels. The end result is a highly efficient grid-based automated warehouse system that fits in a compact space, and delivers pallets significantly faster than manual solutions.
