        SPECIAL AUTOMATIC LUGGAGE LOCKER SYSTEM

        Passenger stations around the world harbour substantial potential for modernisation. All current redesigns are giving to understand a contemporary development away from purely a transportation hub towards “a world of experiences at the station”. Customer-friendly design is, of course, an important feature of the shopping arcades. Customary locker systems require important retail floor space in such shopping arcades. When all the lower lockers are taken, heavy pieces of luggage have to be put in above one’s head.

        The solution to this is the automatic luggage locker systems, underground luggage storage sites with attractive luggage terminals in railway station shopping arcades. These compact luggage terminals can be placed directly in the flow of visitors to such shopping arcades.

      • AUTOMATIC MEDIA CONVEYING SYSTEM

      • FAST AND LOW NOISE TRANSPORT AND PRESORTING OF MEDIAS

        Specially developed low-noise conveying elements (roller and belt conveyors) with a modular design are used. Our logistics systems are essentially characterised by their ease of use, low noise and reliability. The requirements for the operating personnel of our conveying systems are thus kept to a minimum from a technical perspective.

        • Container conveying System - The media and files are transported in plastic containers on the conveyor system. Powerful standard elements as well as various vertical systems transport the containers to the individual destination areas. The containers always remain horizontal. This is the basic prerequisite for gentle transport.
        • Individual Transport - The media and files are transported directly on the conveyor system. A wide variety of functional elements are available (belt conveyors, curve roller conveyors, inward/outward transfers & elevating transfers), making it possible to configure even complex layouts.
        • 24-hr media return - Automatic 24-hr media-return machines enable simple and fast return of media even outside opening hours. Media to be returned are placed on the transport belt individually at a terminal and identified with the help of RFID Labels. Automatic checking back into the Library Management System (LMS) is carried out via a communication interface to a higher-level user Interface.
        • Vertical transport
          The connections between different floors are realised with fully automatic paternoster lifts, linear lifts and lifters. Ascents/inclines can be overcome with specially designed belts. Our systems are characterised by gentle transport of the media and minimal noise pollution for employees and users.
        • Intermediate buffer / External book towers / Fully automatic storage unit
          The so-called “fast movers” are stored in intermediate buffers. These are characterised by fast access times in conjunction with automatic issue and return Systems. External book towers and storage stacks are technically sophisticated buildings geared especially to long-term storage of media. This storage unit is characterised by a low-cost design and optimum climatic storage conditions. The media are stored and retrieved fully automatically. Access times with these systems are under 30 minutes. Inventory runs can be made during off-peak hours at any time using RFID Technology.
      • CONVEYING SYSTEMS FOR PARCELS

      • ERGONOMIC AND RELIABLE TRANSPORT FOR PARCELS

        Conveyor systems and storage systems solve internal transport, distribution and storage tasks. The emphasis here is on fast processing and gentle transport at modern postal distribution centres (parcel centres and letter centres). Consisting of modular elements, the various systems can be combined however desired, employing amodular design approach. They are extremely economical, robust, low in noise and are therefore particularly suitable for rough use in everyday postal operations.

        • Conveying systems for parcels - The high-performance conveyor system is used to supply parcels onto a parcel sorting machines. Conveyor belts transport the parcels at a speed of over 2 m/s. Cross switch units are used to distribute goods from one conveyor belt to two transport routes, which alternately distribute over 4,500 parcels per hour. In a further step, a merging point merges parcels from two conveyor lines onto one, doing so at a capacity of 7,000 parcels per hour.
        • Horizontal and vertical transport - Horizontal transport is carried on conveyor belts, roller conveyors and accumulation roller conveyors. For changes of direction, a wide variety of elements are available, depending on the requirement. Differences in elevation are realised with S/C conveyors, paternosters and lifts.
        • Connection to the parcel sorting machines - The high-performance conveyor system is used to supply parcels onto a parcel sorting machines. Conveyor belts transport the parcels at a speed of over 2 m/s. Cross switch units are used to distribute goods from one conveyor belt to two transport routes, which alternately distribute over 4,500 parcels per hour. In a further step, a merging point merges parcels from two conveyor lines onto one, doing so at a capacity of 7,000 parcels per hour.
        • Tray Unloading Device (TUD): automatic container-emptying device - The mail is automatically sorted by standard and large letter sorting machines in containers. By the TUD the delivered containers are automatically tilted and the letters are ergonomically supplied to the sorting machine. The letters are handled gently, and handling of heavy containers is omitted.
      • RETROFIT & SYSTEM MODERNISATION

      • RETROFITTING YOUR FUTURE

        The dynamic nature of technology is a common driving force behind change. However, it usually takes foreseeable process changes or even known bottlenecks to actually update a logistics system. This includes: 

        • Technical obsolescence
        • Usage-related wear and tear
        • Outdated functionality

        Even well-designed systems and warehouses cannot keep pace with new requirements. While the mechanical parts of older systems are often still in good working order, the control hardware as well as the drive mechanisms and sensors may no longer be state of the art. This is why modernisation steps are frequently considered solely for the control and drive Areas.

        The desire to avoid interrupting production or bringing down the whole system tends to cause excessive procrastination prior to refurbishment. The susceptibility to failure increases while efficiency declines. The potential for optimising the workflow goes unexploited over long periods of time.

        • COLD STORAGE SYSTEMS

        • Frozen food has become a trend: today consumers buy increasingly convenience food or other frozen foods such as fish, vegetables and baked goods in the supermarket. Manufacturers and retailers have to adapt their structures and capacities continuously to this development. Even products from the chemical, pharmaceutical and health sector are kept because of their characteristics at certain temperatures during the entire supply chain.

          Our conveying and storage systems are ideally suited for the automated storage and transport of temperature-controlled goods. The particular challenges associated with the distribution and storage of frozen goods are taken intoconsideration in all project phases. In the realisation phase as well in the implementing phase of the high-bay warehouse and corresponding conveyor technology the extreme temperature requirements will be taken into account.
