Transportwerktuigen voor het magazijn: een inventarisatie van
magazijnwerktuigen en haar samenhang met magazijnstellingen.
Report 94.3.LT.4343, Transport Engineering and Logistics.
A big variety of transport tools in a warehouse exists. Selection of a specific
transport tool for a warchouse is a difficult process. Due to lack of literature
in which an overview is given of all transport tools, very often the choice of
a transport tool does not have a solid basis.
To make a good selection, out of all possibilities, a description is made of
the storage equipment. Without knowledge of the storage equipment, it is not
possible to make a well founded choice for a transport tool.
Moreover, it is necessary that the tools are not classified on appearance and
external features, but on function. In this report a functional classification
is made on degrees of freedom in movement. This results in the following groups:
Transport tools for lineair transport
Transport tools for flat transport
Transport tools for spatial transport
Each transport tool of these groups, is described with its characteristics.
By matching these characteristics with the characteristics of the storage
equipment, it is possible to make a good selection.
