Layout of stacking areas
The robot’s 420 mm wide loading compartment was constructed to be about 20 mm wider than a standard SLC. It is furthermore outfitted with an inclined insertion surface. Both these features allow the vehicle to maneuver more easily when approaching a stack of SLCs. Customers are, however, advised to keep in mind that each container stack should be placed at least 20 cm away from the next, as the robot’s side arms will not fit in between otherwise.
Specifications for stacking area layouts
Given the the requirements stated above, the following stacking area layout specifications apply:
- Maximum difference in stack position angles: 20°
- Minimum grid of stacks in one row (distance center to center): 780 m
- Minimum path width between two stack rows: 1600 mm
If these requirements can be met in the general layout, they create an ideal case scenario for the robot. It may, however, be possible to lower the minimum grid requirement to 600 mm if stacks are put into ideal positions manually.
