The aerial handling system with an automatic shuttle, called the N.AV. SYSTEM, is able to automatically transfer full/empty racks on an aerial guideway within the production cycle following exchanges for change of direction. It moves on battery power.

The movements of the shuttles are controlled by a supervisor PC that can communicate with other machines in the production cycle (e.g. rack loading/unloading robots), and manage all the statistical production data.

N.AV. SYSTEM is equipped with:

  • Battery recharging system
  • Safety system for any obstacles on the paths.
  • Acoustic signals and lights for signaling running or alarm status.
  • Control PLC for each shuttle.
  • Communication via radio.

N.AV. SYSTEM is also available with manual controls.
