The shuttle: beautiful piece of technology dynamically shown
Published by CODEMA, 23 April 2021
Service & maintenance is part of our services. Our technician Rob Overdevest at Vilosa recently performed a PLC optimization on the shuttle robot to make it move continuously without interference. Last year we installed the shuttle at this plant nursery.
Shuttle systems or “shuttle robots” take care of the import and export of mainly roll containers fully automatically. In combination with a segment conveyor, the shuttle is a total solution for transporting roll containers at a nursery. It is a vehicle that, using the heating pipes as rails, drives under the roll containers. It uses a gripping mechanism and sensors to move roll containers.
