German term or phrase: Regalbediengerät
"Die Einlagerung der Bleche in ein freies Regalfach erfolgt automatisch durch ein Regalbediengerät."

"Bei der Auslagerung, mit dem Befehl "Start" wird die Palette automatisch zu dem gewünschten Platz gebracht und dort auf den Auslagerbock vom Regalbediengerät übergeben."

I only know the simple word "stacker" for a robot that does this. Is there something better?

Unfortunately none of the answers were really right for my little engineering company customer. He doesn't build such big complex warehouses to use such terms as "stacker crane". Your answer is what I would have used if I hadn't already used the words "storage and retrieval" about 20 times in the rest of the text so you get the Kudo. I just left it with "stacker" and the customer was satisfied.

shleving device


Explanation:
This translation is general enough to address all configurations. To be more specific more context would be required. As per the original, it does not seem to have to do with heavy equipment.
