How the KS Rack Changer functions
Our Rack Changer consists essentially of four stations:
- Loading: In the first step, the rack containing the particular body components is taken from a forklift truck or via a route train into the loading station.
- Transport 1: On the system side of the KS Rack Changer, an empty rack is lifted vertically by the telescopic fork and moved to the waiting position in the meantime.
- Transport 2: The full load carrier is now prepared for removal. To do so, it moves into the position from which the empty rack was previously collected.
- Unloading: While the full rack is being emptied on one side, the empty rack on the other side moves down from its waiting position and is moved to the unloading position from where it is removed. A new rack change cycle can now start.
