Shuttle Systems

The STINGRAY is TGW’s latest generation shuttle module, designed for medium to very high throughput rates. Twister load-handling devices with fixed or variable telescope clearance are a key component of each STINGRAY shuttle. They enable handling of loads with different dimensions in normal, chilled and frozen environments with single, double or multi-deep shelves. The compact design of the STINGRAY and the small gaps between the loads in the racking allow for extremely high storage density. The shuttles are supplied via high-performance lifts with heights of up to 25 metres.

A sophisticated access and maintenance concept permits easy access to all important system components. TGW’s Commander system takes care of the control and visualisation of the module, ensuring perfect system interaction. By using state-of-the-art energy recovery systems, the STINGRAY system also achieves an extremely high degree of energy efficiency
