Mast sway control

AS/RS mast sway control

LTI Motion enables customers to offer automated storage and retrieval solutions that not only increase warehouse efficiency but also reduce operating costs by lowering the costs for energy, maintenance and spare parts.

Your benefits

  • Reduced mast sway provides for high throughput / low combined cycles
  • Intelligent attenuation feature implemented as configurable Motion Function Blocks in the motion controller provides for shorter picking times and fast storage and retrieval
  • Dynamic travel profile that puts less wear on materials and takes into account different loads and load heights
  • Anti-sway motor replaced with master-slave software solution in motion controller
  • Increased system availability by reducing wear on mechanical components
  • Shorter development cycles thanks to tested software modules
