Frazier Industrial's semiautomated, high-density Pallet Mole System was formally launched across North America at ProMat 2013 this week. This pallet shuttle device runs underneath the pallet loads on rails, delivering and extracting pallets within a deep-lane storage racking system. Using an RF controller, the operator instructs the electromechanical platform to lift, lower, or shuttle pallets to the desired position.
The system can go up to six levels high and 50 pallet positions deep. The Pallet Mole works for either first-pallet-in/first-pallet-out or last-pallet-in/last-pallet-out applications.
According to Frazier, there have been several successful installations of the Pallet Mole in industries such as beverages, food processing, food service, and cold storage since it was first introduced at ProMat 2011.
