A Holistic Solution Across Different Storage Areas

Well Thought Out Flow of Goods

Storage and retrieval is subsequently performed by one of the six Cheetah Eco aisle stacker cranes, which move around the approx. 13 metre high mini-load warehouse in six aisles. A total of 25,000 different articles are stored here.

Ergonomic Workstations for Employees

All workstations were commonly developed and designed by Miele and GEBHARDT, with consideration to the workplace ergonomics. As a result, the workers can tilt both the pallets and the order containers in the area of the conveyance technology to remove the goods in an ergonomic manner, thereby reducing physical strain.

Support for Employees in Consolidation

Consolidation is an element of the new central spare parts warehouse. Here, the different items in an order are intermediately stored and collected in a shelf rack system. A "put-to-light" system is used to support the workers with this task.

Packaging and Shipping Matched

All packaged boxes then pass through two strapping machines and a weighing and volume measurement unit, before being discharged to one of the nine different destinations by an F-RED sorter. The lifting table sorter in operation transports the various box sizes quietly and carefully. Two of the destination routes are linked directly to the extending GEBHARDT ConBoom telescopic belt conveyor and enable the transport right into the truck or a loading bridge.
