Traslo Park T Parcheggio automatico
Traslopark T is a parking model wherein cars are moved by an integral-lift carriage. This type is suitable for public and private parking facilities of medium or large size: from 80 to 1000 parking spaces with multiple modules. It can be built below or above ground, with access point above or below the parking levels.
The Traslopark T automated parking system is characterized by its single central mechanism (in blue/brown in the diagram), called a storage-and-retrieval machine; this allows for a reduction in cycle times with respect to the Liftpark T models because it simultaneously combines transfer and lift movements. Moreover, the absence of the central slab in the SR machine area allows for a reduction in digging depth.
The cars are parked on fixed stalls (in green in the diagram). The SR machine positions itself in front of the stall containing the car to be retrieved, simultaneously moving the transfer tower (blue) and the elevating platform (brown), transfers the car with the integral-lift carriage (in red) from the stall to the elevating platform and transfers to the car to the exit point. The driver may then get into the car and exit the parking facility. The system is now ready for a new operation (this system has reduced cycle times with respect to the platform system because there is no need to wait for the empty platform to reposition itself into the parking stall). Parking takes place in reverse order.
This parking system may be supplemented with optional equipment that rotates the car, allowing for entrance and exit without reversing (in orange), or transfers the car from street level to the internal parking levels. The entrance/exit point may be constructed in the traditional manner – within a room in the
building – or on the exterior with a retractable roof, which, when closed, restores the flatness of the external surface.
Cars can be parked in a single bay (single-file) as shown in the figure, or in a double or triple bay, optimizing the available space.
