Kasto’s UNILINE single- or double-sided system with 200 to 800 storage locations for single-deep storage of sheet. Smaller and larger s are available from the company’s UNITOWER and UNICOMPACT ranges respectively, the latter configurable with thousands of locations. Standard UNILINE pallets have a usable load of 3 tonnes, although 5 tonnes or more is possible on request. All systems can accommodate small, medium and large (3m x 1.5 m) format sheet; even extra-large and special sizes can be specified. Additionally, material can be stored on EURO pallets. The rigid gantry crane is designed as a double mast unit with the handling equipment moving up and down between the masts. Lift movement takes place via two robust roller chains. A pull-push system is employed to handle the pallets. Precision roller chains with follower pins move the pallet into and out of the storage locations on plastic glides. These are virtually maintenance-free owing to the large support area, resulting in low surface compression. Another advantage is the increase in available space; telescope forks moving in and out would not permit such dense packing of the pallets in the shelf.
