The safe, dependable, and fast movement of pallets
Westfalia Satellite® technology is a fully automated rack entry vehicle used in our AS/RS to store and retrieve pallet and palletless loads.
This exclusive pallet racking technology can handle various pallet types including custom sizes, with the ability to store pallets with either the long or short side leading. The Satellite® can accommodate a standard weight capacity of 4,400 lbs. and is distributed evenly over 20 wheels to eliminate cantilevered load moments. Using a counter rotation principle, Westfalia's Satellite® quickly and safely moves pallets at a rate of 30 to 120 pallets per hour per storage/retrieval machine (S/RM) with gentle starts and stops.
Utilizing this Satellite® pallet racking system technology to store and retrieve pallets in a high-density, multiple deep system configuration can significantly increase the capacity of existing storage space.
