Automated Fork Truck Systems


Precise Positioning System

A laser positioning system is used on the horizontal axis. A reflector is mounted at the end of the aisle and the positioner is mounted on the machine. It senses its position within 1/16". The vertical system uses a punched code bar and a read head. This system is absolute and has a tolerance of .076". Therefore our Automated Storage and Retrieval Material Handling System (AS/RS) knows where it is (both Horizontally and Vertically) at all times. All of the load addresses in the aisle are then precisely "definable" in both the horizontal and vertical axes. In essence, each defined location has its own set of coordinates.

More importantly, racks and their layout can be changed by the user. The system coordinates can then be easily redefined in the end of aisle (E.O.A.) Controlling PC.
