Cold storage warehouses and conveying systems

Gentle and reliable conveyor and storage system

The new-generation of the standardized pallet conveyor elements, developed and manufactured by Gilgen, offer efficient, safe and economical transport of goods and materials.

The modular design of the components and the energy-saving, frequency-controlled drive technology enable flexible, in-house transport of EURO pallets, half pallets and plastic pallets with a payload of up to 1,500 kg.

The identification and testing of the pallets contributes to a high degree to the reliability of the systems. The pallets are checked for weight, foot clearance control, hanging down running boards, pallet deflection control, as well as displaced or oversized loads. Thus, disturbances in the automatic conveyor and storage facilities can be avoided.

The robust and low-maintenance conveyor technology offers high delivery quality and reliability of the supply chain in the overall system and guarantees the gentle transport with high availability.

With this system technology, high-performance shuttle cars are used with one or multiple-place conveyors. With conveying speeds up to 3 m/s and intelligent electronics, high capacity requirements are met in an optimal fashion.

Two lift concepts are available for vertical transport of pallets over multiple floors: electromechanical or hydraulic.
