If goods and merchandise are to be stored compactly in a small area, we recommend the individually adapted high-bay warehouse system with fully automatic storage and retrieval from goods receipt to dispatch. For pallets, boxes, rolls, stacks, trays or cartons in different formats and with different weights.
High-bay warehouses for high performance and for a large variety of articles can be built in single-deep or double-deep storage.
As a particularly space-saving and efficient solution for warehouses with larger stocks per article, we build channel warehouses with multiple-deep storage and the highest degree of automation.
With a special telescopic fork technology, we achieve pallet storage up to four times deeper and with channel storage technology, storage can be even deeper. Modern canal vehicles can place each pallet measured before storage at the canal position specified by the WMS with millimetre precision for optimum volume utilisation.
We achieve the highest flexibility in terms of performance and the storage of different format sizes by means of a special technology with which we can store or retrieve load units with up to nine sub-pallets or single pallets, pairs, triple and quadruple with one SRM game.

We have specialised in the gentle storage and sensitive handling of paper and film rolls. Our high-bay warehouse systems offer maximum flexibility for a wide range of load units and roll weights up to 5 tons and heavier. These storage systems allow quick access to each roll. Due to the gentle storage there is no damage to the sensitive front sides. The storage height can be up to over 40 metres.
Our special concepts for the storage and handling of sensitive paper rolls with different roll widths, roll diameters and weights include individual conveyor technology, fully automatic roll portals, tailor-made storage and retrieval machines as well as innovative solutions for automatic truck loading and transparent data flow.
Special functions in the HiLIS WMS monitor the max. permissible total weight of the truck and only provide as many rolls for loading as are needed to ensure that this is used to the maximum but not exceeded.
This storage technology is not only perfectly suited for paper rolls, but also for coils, wire coils and other goods in roll form. Hörmann Logistik also implements highly flexible high-bay warehouses in which both roll goods and pallets of various dimensions can be stored.

AutoStore® is a modern and innovative system for automatic storage and picking of small parts in plastic containers, developed by Jacob Hatteland Computer AS from Norway. The system was born out of the idea to optimize volume utilization, dynamics, energy efficiency, expandability, material usage and connection of picking stations compared to conventional automated small parts storage and retrieval systems or shuttle systems.
With its compact storage solution, which dispenses with aisles and shelves, AutoStore® reduces the space requirement by 75%. The totes are placed on the floor one above the other in stacks. A rail system (grid), on which high-speed robots travel, is mounted above the stacks of containers. Tirelessly, they pick up containers, sort them and deliver them to the directly connected ports for incoming goods and picking. AutoStore® is a completely modular system, with the number of robots and workstations determining the throughput capacity.
As an official distributor, Hörmann Logistik offers AutoStore® with the customized WMS HiLIS AS as a general contractor. AutoStore® can be installed as a stand-alone solution or integrated into an overall logistics concept.
The Hörmann Logistik Team is available for customer service and maintenance around the clock, 365 days a year.
With the best storage density ratio of all automated storage systems, AutoStore® achieves ultimate space efficiency. Since almost any grid shape is possible, existing buildings can be used optimally. An availability rate of 98.5% makes AutoStore® the most efficient storage system in the world.
The maximum weight of the stable and stackable containers, which are available in two or three different heights, is 35 kg. An antistatic ESD version is also available.
The self-supporting aluminium structure holds the container stacks and guides the robots on the rails. It can be arranged modularly in any shape. The new Double-Double Grid, with double lanes in the X and Y direction, makes it even easier for the robots to cross and overtake each other.
The AutoStore® robots move in two directions of travel thanks to their two pairs of wheels arranged at the corners. This enables them to reach any position in the grid to pick up, transport and set down containers.
With their energy-efficient motors and a recovery system, they are tirelessly in action. When the battery is running low or there are no tasks to be performed, the robots move to their charging stations located on the edge of the grid.
With a new design, the Black Line robot creates space for labour-intensive robot groups. The standard bins, as well as a higher bin variant, are transported in the robot housing. The B1 robots no longer need to be charged stationarily. Thanks to the patented BattPack technology, the robot can pick up a new, fully charged battery at the BattPack stations around the grid at any time.
The ports can be installed on all sides of AutoStore® and supplied by the robots without interruption. The ports are used for efficient picking and filling of containers - with different movement and design features in terms of accessibility, efficiency and cost benefits.
Depending on the type, the picking performance is between 160 and 650 positions per hour.
The AutoStore® controller autonomously executes the transport orders for all robots, but does not know the contents of the containers. Hörmann Logistik has developed the higher-level warehouse management system HiLIS AS for this purpose. This is tailored to the requirements of AutoStore® and is directly connected to the customer's HOST systems.
HiLIS AS provides the goods receipt and picking information at the ports, maps all operator functionalities and enables operator interventions.
AutoStore® is configured according to your requirements on the basis of a simulation. Your quantity structures, article / order structure and performance requirements determine the size, the number of robots and the number of picking modules.
AutoStore® is suitable both for requirements with low performance and large storage space capacity and for highly dynamic requirements with several thousand storage and retrieval operations per hour.

Our know-how as a general contractor for individual intralogistics systems makes us a specialist for tailor-made warehouse management solutions in a wide range of industries.
For small-format, sensitive or even heavy stock items with high turnover, we implement tailor-made automatic small parts warehouses AKL or automatic tray warehouses with connected conveyor technology, picking stations, dispatch buffers etc.
Depending on requirements, the mini-load warehouse can also be designed for mixed storage of cartons and totes of different sizes. We use steel or plastic trays in the tray warehouses, which can be equipped with special inlays depending on the requirements in order to store the articles safely and gently.
Depending on customer requirements, shuttle systems can be used in addition to stacker cranes.
Order picking is carried out individually according to the principle "goods to man", "man to goods" or a combination of these. Due to an ergonomically optimised goods provision at the order picker, he can work with high picking performance and low error rate.
He is supported by various modern technologies, such as "Pick-by-Light" "Put-to-Light", "Pick-by-Voice", handheld terminals, PC terminals and others.
Online interfaces to various parcel service providers with label printing for each package are provided by the Hi LIS warehouse management system.
