by Inside Logistics Online Staff

The Raymond Corporation has introduced the Raymond Automated Transtacker (Automated TRT) to its line of automated warehouse solutions.

The new Automated TRT offers dual-mode operation: automated mode for full pallet moves and manual mode for case picking. The Automated TRT’s Order Manager software fully integrates with warehouse management systems (WMS).

Designed to work in very narrow aisle environment, the stacker will suit applications such as e-commerce, manufacturing and food and beverage. It can lift loads as heavy as 3,000 pounds in aisles as narrow as 54 inches, reaching heights up to 59 feet.

“This new Automated TRT showcases our dedication to keep our customers running at peak efficiency. This new model offers customers a flexible solution for high-density, high-selectivity storage environments,” said Martin Buena Franco, product marketing manager of automation at Raymond.

“Thanks to the increased productivity hours an automated truck provides, the Automated TRT can increase pallet moves by 20 percent per month.”

The flexible, movable storage and retrieval lift design has no hydraulic components and longer service life.

Advanced controls provide precise positioning and load-handling functions, along with dynamic hoist braking, to help minimize brake wear and increase operator confidence.

Equipped with an energy-efficient lithium-ion battery, the Transtacker recharges during use and does not require a battery change.
