PALLET SHUTTLE RACK
Interlake Mecalux’s high-density, semi-automated pallet storage and retrieval system makes it easier to load and unload goods thanks to an electric cart called Pallet Shuttle.
The forklift sets the load atop the Pallet Shuttle, which then moves along the track to deposit the load in the correct location. Pallet Shuttle has shorter unload times for pallets and can retrieve them and bring them to the aisle entrance, so the forklift does no have to enter the lane. This optimizes space by compacting pallets with different widths inside the channels while it minimizes heights between levels.
- Maximizes productivity
- Reduced reliance on forklifts inside lanes helps prevent rack damage
- Optimizes space by compacting pallets with different widths inside the channels
- Height between levels is minimized

Cantilever Racks from Modern Equipment Company
MECO OMAHA manufactures five basic capacity series to fit your storage requirements, from Series 1000 Medium Duty- to Series 5000 Extra Heavy Duty. Bremac Material Handling Solutions is able to help you pick the best product for your needs as well as install it.
MECO OMAHA CANTILEVER RACK DESIGN
Cantilever Rack is a freestanding storage unit with horizontal load carrying arms extending outward from a single vertical column. The absence of a vertical support on the outboard ends of the arms permits uninterrupted storage of long lengths of material.
Cantilever Rack is the ideal system for storing furniture, steel bars, pipe and tubing, lumber and other long, heavy items that must be kept off the floor…provides instant accessibility to one piece or a full load. Forklift easily loads off and on arms and bases. Being modular in nature, additional arms, uprights and braces may be added as storage requirements change.
Uprights consist of a vertical column and a horizontal base which is bolted to the column. A minimum of two uprights must be ordered to form a storage bay. Each edge of the column is punched vertically on 3″ centers so it may be used as a single or double sided upright depending on the size of base used. NOTE: The arms must never be placed on the back side of a single sided upright and base. Standard upright and base color is gray.
Cantilever arms are the heart of the rack system. Proper selection can make or break a successful storage plan. MECO OMAHA offers straight arms (generally used for storing stable loads such as lumber, steel sheets, cartons and skids) and inclined arms (for cylindrical objects or loads that tend to roll forward). Arms can be adjusted on 3″ centers up and down the upright and are available in lengths to 60″ in a variety of capacities. The hair pin keeper permits instant adjustability and is easily inserted and removed for adjustment of arm height. Lips are available on all MECO OMAHA arms. Standard arm color is gray.
DESIGNING A CANTILEVER RACK SYSTEM
The key to a successful cantilever rack system is the answer to one question: What is the product (load) being stored? The answer must include the length, depth, height and weight of the product. Once this data is ascertained it becomes a simple matter to determine the required arms, uprights and braces.
The load must be supported by enough arms to prevent load deflection. Deflection may cause damage to the load being stored as well as the arms (figure A1). To detect deflection, place the load over two wooden blocks (to represent cantilever arms) as shown in figure A2. If deflection is not present it is acceptable to use a two arm system as long as this does not create an overload condition. If the load shows deflection use three blocks as shown in figure A3 or four blocks as in figure A4. IMPORTANT: The load should overhang the end arms by one-half the distance from upright centerline to upright centerline. Failure to observe this measure may cause an overload condition on the arms.
Determine Arm & Upright Capacitites
As previously discussed, each arm supports an equal amount of the load’s weight. By determining thenumber of arms per level and dividing it into the weight per level, the required arm capacity can be determined (see example at right). To determine the required capacity of each upright, multiply the number of arms per side by the load on each arm. Each arm holds 2500 lbs. Twelve arms per side times 2500 lbs. per arm equals 30,000 lbs., which when divided by three uprights, results in a required minimum capacity of 10,000 lbs. per upright. The correct upright can be selected by matching the minimum upright capacity of 10,000 lbs. with the upright capacities.

Choosing the right conveyor system is critical to the success of your automated material handling system. Conveyor systems are typically used to transport materials for long distances while reducing operational costs and improving safety. Systems include various types of transport and accumulation conveyors along with: merges, inclines, declines, spirals, scanners, diverts, and sorters. Floor conveyors can be utilized for various types of products, from small and light to full pallets, while overhead conveyors are configured for specific types of units depending on the application.
The typical conveyor system is a fixed path that optimizes the labor required to move product, provide accumulation as a buffer, and protect the product from damage due to excessive handling and improved operator safety for bulky or heavy product in warehouse and manufacturing applications. Flexible conveyors can be used independently or in conjunction with fixed conveyor systems.
We stock chain, rigging supplies, hooks, cord, and wire ropes. We can special order to meet your needs as well.
