Multi-tier installation with pallet live storage systems and carton live storage systems
Automated bin storage systems
Functional and efficient operations are rarely single system stores as to organisation, picking strategy and storage systems technology. Seen from the economic point of view, the "optimum" warehouse will always be a combination of several strategies and techniques.
With storage systems at the heart of a warehouse, the right "mixture" of systems will considerably increase work efficiency in a picking store. The selection respectively the use of different storage systems as well as the amount of reference items ready to be picked are determined to a large degree by reference turnover in a given period of time.
Too huge an amount of goods on stock requires less replenishment operations, but results in longer travel routes and order processing times.
An insufficient picking stock is also inefficient as this would require too many replenishment operations or lead to workflow disruptions at the picking locations on account of items lacking.
In general, the decision on the right warehouse equipment should therefore not be based on the number of replenishment operations, but on the turnover of a reference.
Automated Storage Systems
Automated or partially automated storage systems are a clever alternative to manually serviced installations if without compromising flexibility – the implementation of such a solution leads to improved working conditions, reduced order throughout times and picking errors, constant availability of goods at the picking locations and a gain in floor space and storage volume. Computer-controlled warehouse management systems ensure permanent stock control.
Particularly in the case of carton live storage systems , pallet live storage systems and pallet storage systems, the economic advantage due to time savings is most evident.
Another advantage is that automated solutions constitute a closed system which prevents unauthorised access.
In the field of automated storage systems , we cooperate with renowned stacker crane manufacturers.
