Since May 2016, Jäger Direkt and the "gut drauf-Elektrofabrik" have combined production, order picking and dispatch under one roof. The GEBHARDT Intralogistics Group has implemented the entire high-performance conveyor technology including material ‑ow control for the new factory, thus creating optimal intralogistics conditions. Up to 15 employees can be employed at the 13 order picking stations of the expandable plant. Up to 325 order totes are picked per hour.
With its total of 1,536 storage locations, the walking beam warehouse primarily functions as an order buffer. Since two bins are stored or retrieved double-deep in the storage compartments, the capacity is 85 double cycles per walking beam device and hour.
The material flow system (MFS) takes over the process and conveyor control of the plant including the control of the walking beam devices. The GEBHARDT StoreWare warehouse management software (WMS) controls among other things the maintenance, the activation and allocation of the picking workstations as well as the allocation of the shipping units to the three lanes of the parcel ejection.
„This gives us all the options we need to expand, both in terms of construction and production as well as in terms of conveyor and shelving technology and the warehouse management system."
Jens Fischer, Member of the Management Board at Jäger Direkt
In order to bring production and logistics together under one roof and thus be optimally equipped for the planned future expansions, Jäger Direkt, specialist for installation, building and lighting technology as well as mobile power supply, has realized a new plant with integrated shipping at the Heppenheim site, which was put into operation in May 2016. GEBHARDT was commissioned for the intralogistics concept with conveyor technology and walking beam storage
