For this, if required, we offer the combined expertise of all the companies in the ROFA Group.
        • Consultation & Planning

        • Want to automate your intralogistics processes, expand or upgrade an existing plant, or build a completely new plant? We have multiple decades of experience in project development and implementation, and translate your wishes into a future-proof system. While you concentrate on your core business, we as a full-service provider take the weight off your shoulders: If requested, we will open calls for tender on your behalf for various trades; we analyze markets, perform evaluations, and sound out multiple scenarios to find the perfect solution for your material flow. Because only a thoroughly thought out logistics system can ensure your competitive advantage for years to come.

          We plan with you – for you!

          Safety in execution is everything when it comes to logistics – regardless of whether the plant is a big or small project. To ensure that everything is in the right place at the right time, we create simulations and emulations of your future logistics plant when needed.

          For simulations, we reproduce your logistics system in an animated 3D model to check the throughput performance and effects of different storage strategies in advance. This makes it easy to analyze and optimize technical processes. As a result, improvements can be identified and incorporated before the project starts. Another advantage of the simulation is that you can already see your future plant in full operation in animated pictures.

          A reproduction of the logistics plant that goes beyond the simulation in terms of detail and function, with all drive and technology specifications, is called an emulation. This model is designed with such precision that it – like the plant itself later on – can be connected to a PLC and be controlled with it. In this way, the PLC can be tested in virtually real conditions even before commissioning. Unlike in conventional software tests, with this, it is possible to dynamically observe the PLC for an entire work period. Errors can therefore be detected and rectified as early as in the run-up.
        • Implementation & System Integration

        • You have a vision for your productivity in the future – we make it a reality. Whether you envision building a completely new plant, want to get your existing plant into shape with a retrofit, or want to achieve a higher level of automation, We bring our bundled experience from numerous projects and design a plant that corresponds to your requirements 100%. We’re even happy to take on the control, organization, and management of your material flow and offer scalable solutions for these.

          We don’t just plan the inner workings of your warehouse for you, we’re also your experienced partner when it comes to constructing the building infrastructure that goes with it. We work with a team of architects and engineers to plan production and warehouse halls, offices, and automated warehouse systems for you. From small add-ons to erecting large logistics halls and centers, we offer all services from one source and are there to guide you, from the first draft to structural work, all the way to turnkey delivery.

          Naturally our biggest priority for extension projects is for running operation to be impaired as little as possible and carefully protect the renovation area. Our team leader will supervise your project throughout the planning and production stage, and be available to you as a consistent point of contact at all times. We’re glad to suggest resource-friendly and energy-efficient options to meet your sustainability requirements!

          Upgrading & extensions
          Intralogistics processes are prone to major changes. As new technologies and software solutions come onto the market, the distribution of goods becomes more demanding. This makes it all the more important to think about upgrade concepts and extensions early on to keep your system running strong, because a state of the art storage system is much more efficient, economical, and energy-saving. Retrofit measures can increase the lifespan of your existing plant by about 10 to 15 years. You’ll achieve the latest state of the art and profit from having a secure supply of spare parts. We work with you to plan the various steps or upgrading or building extensions and develop just the right concepts that can often be implemented during running operation.

                                  • Stacker and mini-load cranes

                                  • The powerful “giants”
                                    Stacker and mini-load cranes are used for automated handling of goods in high racks. Determining the running time, costs, and energy consumption – with consideration for resources for later extensions – helps with the optimal design for units. Stacker cranes are aisle-bound, track-guided vehicles equipped with one or two load-handling attachment(s) that handle carriers in a pallet high-bay warehouse, tray warehouse, or small parts warehouse.

                                    Stacker cranes for curved tracks have a custom shape, and can serve multiple rack aisles or an entire warehouse by means of a switch system. In contract to the classic, aisle-bound variant, this shape is significantly more cost-effective, but provides less power.

                                    If exceptionally high storage/retrieval capacity is needed for automated small parts warehouses – e.g., in connection with “goods-to-person” picking stations, as buffer storage, or for providing goods to production, assembly, or dispatch in precise order – shuttle systems are an ideal choice. They can also be integrated as an add-on into stacker cranes in an automated small parts warehouse.

                                    Stacker and mini-load cranes characteristics:
                                    • Height: between approx. 3 m and approx. 45 m
                                    • Switch system: aisle-bound or multi-lane (for curved tracks)
                                    • Load weight: from 1 kg to 11,000 kg
                                    • Speed: up to over 300 m/min

                                    • High throughputt
                                    • Economical
                                    • High energy efficiency if energy recovery options are used
                                    • Reliable

                                    • „storage and retrieval machine“ (S/R machine)
                                  • Shuttle systems (pallets/mini-load)

                                  • Agile, scalable, high-efficiency
                                    Shuttle systems offer outstanding scalability in power and excellent extension options for storing and retrieving containers, boxes, and trays. They guarantee the highest handling capacity with short access times.

                                    In a shuttle system, fully automated vehicles take on transported the stored goods. Unlike stacker cranes, multiple vehicles per aisle can be used on top of each other simultaneously. Installing multiple vehicles per channel level also provides improved system performance.

                                    Shuttle systems (pallets/mini-loads) characteristics:
                                    The shuttle vehicles are either autonomous and drive with an integrated battery, or connected to a handling unit via an electrical link.

                                    System advantages:

                                    • High throughput

                                      • High-bay warehouses

                                      • High-bay warehouses offer high utilization of space in warehouses for storing pallets, special load carriers, heavy loads, or lattice boxes. They are transported within the warehouse manually or by means of stacker crane and managed through a warehouse management system.

                                        High-bay warehouses consist of a steel construction with rows of shelves and aisles; wooden variants are also possible, but extremely uncommon. Goods can be stored one or two rows deep. In new constructions, they are frequently built in silo form – the shelves are used as a supporting element – but can also be integrated into an existing building.

                                        High-bay warehouses characteristics:
                                        • Can be operated manually by forklift or automatically by stacker crane
                                        • Made up of individual lanes
                                        • Can be combined with picking stations
                                        • Can be connected to a conveyor system
                                        • Height: between 12 m and approx. 50 m
                                        • Capacity: from a few thousand spaces to several hundred thousand
                                      • Automated mini-load or small parts warehouses (ASPW)

                                      • Automated mini-load or small parts warehouses (ASPW) are for efficiently storing small parts in containers, boxes, or trays and guarantee short access times, high handling performance, and optimal use of space.

                                        The entire system works by the goods-to-person principle and consists, among other things, of a shelf system, stacker crane with load-handling attachment, materials handling technology, and control system. The goods are stored in steel shelves, on wall clips, or on shelves. A prerequisite for operating an ASPW is a suitable warehouse management system.

                                        ASPW Characteristics:
                                        • Stores containers, trays, or boxes
                                        • Made up of individual lanes Storage one or two rows deep
                                        • Operated by means of a fully automated stacker crane for each lane
                                        • Can be combined with picking stations
                                        • Connected to materials handling technology
                                        • Flow rack channels can be integrated
                                        • Height up to approx. 25 m
                                        • Load up to approx. 300 kg
                                      • Picking systems

                                      • One of the core functions of a logistics system is efficient and optimal order picking. This involves consolidated individual pieces or packaging units of products by individual order. The entire range of goods stored in the warehouse must be able to be accessed in as short a time as possible in order for this to happen.

                                        The best order picking concept for your company will be chosen based on the particularities of its operations and products. Size, weight, sensitivity, and number of products are also critical, as are the order picking output required and the available space.

                                        The warehouse management system BSS-L supports all common and special order-picking principles for optimally fast and error-free order consolidation.

                                        The possibilities:
                                        “goods-to-person” picking:

                                        • picking guided by screen dialog or LED pointer and put-to-light
                                        • Multiple picking possible with multi-picking station for best efficiency

                                        “person-to-goods” picking:
                                        • purely manual via order-picking pallet truck or cart
                                        • As a zone-to-zone picking system or pick-to-belt system with the help of sophisticated conveyor systems
                                        • With manual or automatic replenishment
                                        • Picking guided by pick slip, handheld, pick-by-light, or pick-by-voice
                                      • Materials handling equipment (MHE)

                                      • Conveyor and warehouse systems for pallets, trays, containers and boxes
                                        Conveyor systems for containers, trays, pallets, or special load carriers are coordinated perfectly with the range of products and entire system. They come with automation and drive technology included.

                                        Conveyor systems can be combined with picking stations and can be connected to an automated warehouse.

                                        • High throughput capacity
                                        • Non-contact accumulation of load carriers
                                        • Retraceable transport gentle on products
                                        • Low energy requirement
                                        • Easy operation and easy maintenance
                                        • Can be used as a buffer line
                                      • Deep freeze warehouses

                                      • Fully automated deep freeze warehouses mean relieving a huge burden for warehouse personnel. For suppliers, building such plants with sub-zero temperatures is a special challenge: materials handling and warehouse technology are exposed to enormous stress. Implementation requires as little loss of cooling as possible, especially in transition areas that need to be guaranteed to maintain the cold chain without disrupting it. Technologies and materials are used that have been specially designed for the requirements in a deep freeze warehouse or meet them, as well as heated components.


                                        • Less stress on personnel with goods-to-person order picking
                                        • Optimal use of space and corresponding lower energy costs
                                        • Accelerated processes
                                      • Sorting systems

                                      • Automatic sorting solutions for pallets and packages of all kinds can be used in both production and retail, generally wherever productivity, throughput, or dispatch capacity should be increased.

                                        They serve to consolidate orders from homogeneous incoming goods into individually consolidated pallets, for example, or to create homogeneous order pallets.

                                        Possible solutions include:
                                        • buffer or sequencial warehouses (ASPW, HBW)
                                        • FLOWPICKER®
                                      • Production buffers

                                      • Automatic production buffers serve to uncouple different process stages and guarantee the highest production rate possible. Avoiding costly disruptions in operating processes is a particular challenge; a buffer system must therefore have the highest availability rates and redundancy values.

                                        Intermediate buffering of goods allows for quick replenishment if disruptions or short-term changes occur in the process sequence. A special feature of buffer warehouses is that the products are generally not assigned to fixed storage spaces and are only in the warehouse for a short time.

                                        • Optimization of lead times in production
                                        • High availability
                                        • Provisioning in precise order
                                        • Replenishment security
                                      • Logistic and distribution centers

                                      • Logistic and distribution centers are virtually indispensable at this point for many companies in the age of globalization. A well planned, customized logistics center helps to significantly increase the performance and efficiency of logistics processes in the company and ensure competitive ability.

                                        • Reduced delivery times
                                        • Lower costs
                                        • Centralization
                                        • High product availability
                                        • Shorter transport distances
                                        • Optimal use of space

                                          • Trade & E-Commerce

                                          • In times of digitization and omni-channel business, online trade is constantly growing. Today’s customers want to be able to do almost all purchasing immediately online. They expect the desired goods to be available and to be delivered promptly. This places high demands on logistics. Demands have also changed in traditional retail. For reasons of cost and space, stores and markets increasingly use just-in-time delivery, often several times a day. For this very reason, in view of the increasing variety of products and capacity constraints, many companies must now completely realign important sub-areas of their intralogistics. Shortened process times, increased flexibility and the need to be able to react quickly to seasonal fluctuations are increasing.

                                            In this fundamental change we are on the side of our customers. As a full-service provider, we plan and implement the optimal material flow for existing and new warehouses and develop the appropriate, turnkey solution, on request from construction in the countryside. We are experienced automation experts and stand for scalable solutions that are future-proof – even where the space on offer is limited. We have already proven our maxim “What does not exist, we invent” many times and welcome every new challenge.
                                          • Food & Beverage

                                          • The food industry is characterized by a constant price war and changing customer requirements. The challenges are particularly enormous in terms of freshness: The quickly perishable and sensitive products must be delivered to the markets in defined requested quantities just in time. Cold storage solutions are also important because the sensitive goods sometimes need to be stored in defined temperature zones. The pet food sector has very similar requirements and is equally growing rapidly. Standards are increasing, the variety of products is continuously developing. This leads to a need for more storage capacity and optimized intralogistics. When it comes to beverages, special topics such as protection against leaks, fall protection and easy maintenance of the system always play a role in the projects – we always take this into account when planning and flexibly adapt the delivery solution to the respective requirements.

                                            For a large amount of different articles, which only need to be temporarily stored, the ROFA Group, with the participation of the companies BSS, DLS and ROFA AG, has developed a unique solution on the market: the Flowpicker®. This fully automatic, high-performance order picking system enables efficient handling of a wide variety of packaging types, from plastic containers through cardboard boxes to vegetable crates or retail trays. The smart flow storage system warehouse sorts the incoming products in such a way that they are put together just in time for the mixed pallets requested by the customer. The system also sets new standards in ergonomics. Depalletizing and palletizing is done by simply moving. The difficult process of picking up, carrying, and resetting the goods is a thing of the past. A health-friendly solution that is also interesting in terms of staff recruitment.
