Storage of large quantities of goods – precisely, quickly, and safely
Having to handle a wide range of goods and deliver and retrieve them just in time presents big challenges for internal logistics in the automotive industry. Our automated storage lift systems provide the answer.
order picking for engine assembly
The manufacturer of heavy agricultural machinery planned to store the components needed for its assembly line right by the assembly area. Greater storage capacity was needed on the same footprint and the stored items needed to be well protected.
fast retrieval of spare parts
The Belgian manufacturer of trailers for special transport and heavy haulage decided to centralize its storage facilities previously spread across three production sites in Belgium, Luxembourg, and Poland. At the same time, the entire logistics operation had to be reorganized more efficiently. The new warehouse needed space for 17,000 items and had to make them available to employees or customers in the shortest amount of time when needed.
cost-cutting storage of spare parts
The Norwegian car dealer set itself the aim of keeping 90 percent of all spare parts in stock on the premises. Establishing this service concept required fast processing times and also meant that efficient use had to be made of the available space.
Does your storage logistics operation constantly have to cope with high order volumes?
The fully automatic systems on our carousel and lift storage systems can handle the storage and retrieval of even large-volume orders in next to no time. With the help of our efficient Power Pick Global warehouse management software, orders are picked with high speed and precision.
Does your inventory include a large number of small and miniature components?
Thanks to their compact design and storage technology, our dynamic retrieval systems are ideal for highly dense storage of many parts in a small space. Besides taking up less space, the solution also helps to cut the time employees spend moving around during storage and retrieval.
Would you like to minimize the time spent by employees moving around the warehouse and assembly area?
By organizing our machines in line with the goods-to-person principle the necessary items are conveyed directly to the employees in the warehouse and the assembly areas, saving you time that would have been spent moving around. At the same time ergonomics is also improved for employees.
Do you store components and items which are especially worthy of protection?
Our lockable storage system guarantees safe handling and storage of valuable components and goods, providing optimal protection from external influences and unauthorized access.
Does the nature of the stored goods forbid the use of water as fire protection?
To prevent goods from being damaged by water, we do not use sprinkler systems in the event of fire and smoke. Instead we use state-of-the-art gas extinguishing systems. In this way the stored material is not vulnerable to moisture in the event of a fire.
Combination of measures
Since the design of our retrieval systems is modular, it goes without saying that it is easy to combine the solutions presented here.
The advantages at a glance
- Less space needed: The footprint needed can be reduced by up to 85 percent due to the highly dense storage concept. This makes it possible to store the same amount of goods on a footprint just ten to 25 percent of the original size while also freeing up space for other uses.
- Modular design: The units can be integrated into any existing logistics system – as a self-contained storage system, in the area of production, or as an efficient buffer storage solution for shipping.
- Improved inventory management: The Power Pick Global warehouse management software makes it possible to permanently monitor stock levels in real time via its direct connection to the ERP system.
- Safe batch management: Even extremely high quantities of miniature items can be safely stored and retrieved with our warehouse management software.
- Controlled climate by regulating the humidity and temperature of environments where critical components are stored.
- Dust-free storage in clean room conditions.
