      • FlexConveyor

      • GEBHARDT FlexConveyor - Industry 4.0 Conveyor Technology Construction Kit

        Plug & Play Conveyors
        The concept of the FlexConveyor is very simple: Individual conveyor modules are pushed together by Plug & Play and connected as in a construction hit system. After connection to the power mains, the modules are ready for use at once. From this moment onwards, the material flow is completely controlled by the local FlexConveyor logic. This way, the FlexConveyor – in contrast to the classic conveyor systems set up with conventional PLC controls - does not need the time- and cost-intensive planning and commissioning or can do with a strongly reduced version. This makes it easy to setup a conveyor route.

        Smart Conveyors
        This is enabled by a smart, linkable control module – the FlexBox, which is integrated into each conveyor element. A simple connection technology ensures the transmission of energy and data between the modules, with the locally working control algorithm of the FlexBox being able to independently recognize the system's topology and plan transport paths. Failure of components is recognized as well and replacement routes are looked for, with the system able to regenerate itself.

        Configurable Conveyors
        The wish for fast adjustment to frequently changing requirements is taken into consideration in the simple configuration of conveyor systems with the FlexConveyor's technology. An easy to operate configurator enables manufacturers and end customers alike to comfortably make settings for the modules or the conveyor system. Thus, e.g. the passage times can be set in advance as parameters depending on the length of the constructed conveyor at GEBHARDT. On the other hand, the customer can dynamically specify transport routes to, e.g., optimize material flow depending on utilization of workplaces.

The GEBHARDT System 400 is suitable for use under harsh operating conditions, such as those that exist in production and in damp areas for example. The components are distinguished by low-noise running, low installation height and minimal wear.
      • Warehouse technology

      • The warehouse holds the capital

        In times of globalisation, the use of low energy transport and the efficient storage of goods are of increasing importance. It is essential that the intralogistics industry therefore assumes the responsibility of sustainability and energyefficiency. The demand for high-performance, as well as flexible systems, is no less important. Changing business models in the 21st century are driving factors for this development, specifically because of the progress in information technology.

        In the area of distribution logistics, customers are increasing their order frequency whilst the volume of each individual order reduces. Intralogistics systems must meet these requirements with increasing dynamics and automation. Staff must not be neglected in this development, since no logistics centre today works without the contribution of its employees. Therefore the improvement of operator ergonomics is also a main focus. The production logistics must be designed with increasing flexibility and cost effectiveness to ensure international competitiveness. The objective is staying competitive even in high cost countries. State-of-the-art storage systems provide a new level of efficiency that were unthinkable just a few years ago.
      • Sorting technology

      • GEBHARDT sorting technology

        GEBHARDT GridSorter
        Based on the Gebhardt FlexConveyor, a modular, decentralized controlled conveyor system, the Gebhardt GridSorter was developed, which makes the sorting of goods very flexible. The modular design and the adaptive control in addition to the traditional new application fields where previously no sorter were used before, arise.

        GEBHARDT SwitchSorter
        The GEBHARDT SwitchSorter is a modular sorting system, which can be integrated with ease into existing systems. Due to the aligned design of the switch an additional drive is not required.

        GEBHARDT SpeedSorter CFK
        The GEBHARDT SpeedSorter is based on carbon fibre technology, which makes this type of sorting device exceptional due to its extensive availability, high level of stiffness and optimised weight - emphasised by the use of deflection rollers with a diameter of just 20 mm.
      • Goods lift

      • GEBHARDT ConVer® goods lift planned online

        With two to eight stops and up to 16 accesses, the individual requirements of innovative intralogistics systems can be successfully fulfilled by the GEBHARDT ConVer goods lift. With this number of stops conveyance heights of up to 22.5 m are possible. The payload is a max. 2000 kg. The single or double wing shaft doors - with or without windows - are produced in accordance with DIN 18090. These doors are approved for fire containment.

        The freestanding framework of the GEBHARDT ConVer goods lifts guarantees stability. The compact structure results in minimal spatial requirements, meaning that the GEBHARDT ConVer goods lift can be installed almost anywhere - also retrospectively. Depending on the payload, a floor cavity or loading ramp of just 70 to 110 mm in height is required. These goods lifts in accordance with Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC are also suitable for use outdoors. The modular system ensures short delivery times and easy installation on site without cutting or welding work.

        The safety parts used enable installation above passable spaces. Drop protection, speed limiter and overload protection are natural basic elements. Light barriers in the cage access, protective grills and an emergency call device complete the package. The lifts are operated from outside using call and send controls.
      • Telescopic belt conveyor

      • For the final meter – GEBHARDT telescopic belt conveyors

        GEBHARDT Conboom® telescopic belt conveyors extend the automated conveyor route through to the loading area and are therefore the "first and last metre" of the internal material flow system. In this way GEBHARDT Fördertechnik creates the connection between transportation logistics and incoming goods with the delivery of packaged goods or between dispatch and the means of transportation with deliveries. System break points are avoided and the ramp personnel are disburdened.

        Special characteristics
        The GEBHARDT Conboom® telescopic belt conveyor reaches right into the farthest corner and spares personnel unnecessary carrying - quickly and flexibly. The loading bay in the container, semi-trailer or HGV can be up to almost 22 metres in length. The two GEBHARDT ConBoom® lines 081 (double extending) and 082 (triple extending) are each available in three different installation lengths and with three different belt widths. There are therefore nine double and nine triple extendable GEBHARDT ConBoom® telescopic belt conveyors. This choice of modules fulfils every requirement with every conceivable parameter such as ramp length, access to supply technology, transportation vehicle and packaged goods format.

      • Automated truck loading

      • Seamless loading and unloading of trucks

        The automated truck loading from GEBHARDT provides a seamless connection between the warehouse output and the transportation vehicle and vice versa. The material flow is thereby optimally guaranteed to the final metre.

        GEBHARDT technology
        Double pallets are transported using special semi-trailers. Chain conveyors are located inside the modified truck loading bay, which are compatible with the fixed GEBHARDT technology installation.
        During docking, the articulated lorry is automatically centred in the door area by a mechanical guide. Throughout the loading and unloading process the level is maintained between the truck and stationary conveyor technology. For this purpose the driver creates an electrical connection with the system control.

        Once the doors on the semi-trailer have been opened the loading and unloading process is initiated automatically.
        After 65 seconds the truck, with a max. 2x10 doubled pallets, is completely unloaded. A contour monitoring system with freespace, running board, length, width and height checking - which functions continuously throughout the process - enables seamless operation, for example with a subsequent automatic high bay warehouse.
      • Favorit Absackblitz

      • GEBHARDT Favorit Absackblitz

        The GEBHARDT Favorit Absackblitz is an automatic recording and sag device for all types of coal. From a adjusting conveyed good the coal is mined into the dump body of the scale. In between is a sieve device connected which separates the coal from slack coal.

    • Solutions Intralogistics - with GEBHARDT there is a solution to every problem

    • Today, in particular, it is necessary to integrate time-saving technologies into everyday work. GEBHARDT offers you the optimum solution for your individual requirement in every area of internal material flow technology - starting with incoming goods, which precedes every other internal transport, storage and goods picking process.

      Furthermore, perfect solutions are available when it comes to optimal storage. If too much capital is contained in goods in storage, it is difficult for a company to earn money. However, there are a number of possibilities for storing goods in an economical manner, whilst also attaining high throughput quotas. Be it a transfer depot, stock storage or distribution warehouse - optimal storage of goods, unpackaged or packaged in boxes, pallets or containers is essential in guaranteeing a seamless material flow.
        • Goods receiving

        • The receipt of incoming goods is a vital step that precedes all other internal transport, storage and order picking processes.

          This area encompasses goods acceptance, goods acceptance controlling and quality assurance of the incoming goods. It is particularly important to ensure here that the individual goods are correctly checked and labelled, in order that any errors when storing the goods or order picking - which result in erroneous forwarding on for dispatch or production - are duly avoided. It is necessary to utilise a range of methods here, in order to ease goods acceptance in advance and to avoid any errors.
        • Storage systems

        • If too much capital is held in the warehouse in the form of stock, it is difficult for a company to earn money - the essence of the experience of production and retail operations. However, there are a number of possibilities for storing goods in an economical manner, whilst also attaining high throughput quotas.

          Be it a transfer depot, stock storage or distribution warehouse - optimal storage of goods, unpackaged or packaged in boxes, pallets or containers is essential in guaranteeing a seamless material flow. Investments in the warehouse in the form of contemporary technology - hardware and software - combined with complete integration into the added value chain ensure the necessary movement and guarantee transparency.
        • Internal transportation

        • Conveyance systems - with a range of modules such as accumulating conveyors, roller conveyors, belt conveyors, lifting and transfer devices - are vital to the seamless flow of materials between incoming and outgoing goods.

          In the shelf reception zone, packaged goods and containers are fed in and out of the ongoing material flow. With simultaneous in and out-feeding, continuous conveyors form a direct link between multiple transport levels.

          Be they systems for assembly as installed at NEFF, for production as at Bang & Olufsen or in goods distribution centres as used by Stihl and Polo, GEBHARDT systems can be flexibly aligned with customer-specific transport tasks. Conveyance bridges, such as those installed at Ferrero in order to link multiple buildings - for example production and dispatch halls - are no problem either.

          GEBHARDT Fördertechnik offers tailored complete solutions from the idea through to realisation. Holistic concepts for electronic control and automation are decisive for powerful logistics systems.

          The range on offer from GEBHARDT Fördertechnik includes electrical and electronic equipment - hardware and software - conveyor systems, material flow control and warehouse management.
        • Sorting

        • oday, in particular, it is necessary to integrate time-saving technologies into everyday work. So-called distribution and sorting technologies are highly advantageous if goods with varying configurations are to be sorted according to certain criteria. This means that previously unsorted goods can be separated on the basis of previously defined criteria by a sorting system.

          Using sorting and distribution technologies it is possible to overcome time problems and smoothly negotiate personnel-intensive working steps. Shorter throughput times and timely dispatch can also be guaranteed in this way.

          The GEBHARDT SwitchSorter, used by Rhenus, is a modular sorting system, which can be integrated with ease into existing systems. Due to the aligned design of the switch an additional drive is not required. A further strength is the efficient sorting capacity, which enables the SwitchSorter to attain throughputs of 6000 to 7400 packaged goods per hour. Due to pneumatic pivoting, the system is able to sorting the conveyance goods to the left and right.
        • Order consolidation

        • In order to be able to guarantee speedier dispatch times it is possible for materials from various areas, which are intended for a single order, to be brought together by means of suitable material flow technology. One component that supports this order consolidation is so-called buffer storage.

          Here, the GEBHARDT shuttle system StoreBiter 300 - as used by Avnet - in particular offers effective access to incoming and outgoing goods in accordance with the "goods to man" principle. In contrast to classic ASS solutions, the shuttle system offers a considerably greater input and output capacity. The modular design of the individual channel routes also enables a flexible expansion of the storage system if required. It is exceptional due to its optimum use of space and area, its low maintenance and servicing requirements, rapid assembly and low investment and operating costs. The storage system can comprise multi-aisle storage, whereby a single aisle can be divided into multiple modules depending on the storage height. In this case the StoreBiter 300 is able to access multiple storage levels. The GEBHARDT StoreBiter 300 is an economical solution for the individual storage of load carriers. The efficient delivery is supported by the automatic provision of containers, trays or boxes for processing per the requisite sequence.
        • Dispatch

        • Technological support is indispensible in ensuring efficient and rapid dispatch processing. A procedure that encompasses components of material flow technology accelerates the processing of all dispatch units and also reduces the associated costs.

          At EBM Pabst in Mulfingen a wide range of pallets weighing up to 1.5t are strapped and film-wrapped prior to dispatch on a GEBHARDT articulated belt solution. The modular articulated belt conveyors used in this solution move transportation goods with a wide range of dimensions, weights and properties. In conjunction with a direct SAP connection with the GEBHARDT connectors it has been possible to establish an assured and reliable dispatch process.

          Sica uses automatic HGV loading in order to supply its customers with seats on a Just in Time (JIT) and Just in Sequence (JIS) basis. GEBHARDT lightweight chain conveyors are put to use in sequenced loading preparation and automatic loading.
        • Energy efficiency

        • In the scope of the Blue Competence sustainability initiative of VDMA, GEBHARDT takes on board complete responsibility for economy, ecology and society. The objective is minimisation of the energy and resource consumption by innovative technology.

          Lowering costs, protecting the environment
          The Blue Competence initiative of the VDMA helps to find sustainable products and companies who adopt sustainability. GEBHARDT decided early on to place its products and services under the Blue Competence flag of the VDMA. It has always been our objective to develop machines that keep the energy consumption as low as possible. This objective becomes more and more important particularly in times of increasing energy prices. GEBHARDT combines innovative software with advanced mechanics to achieve this objective. Optimisation that only includes individual components utilises only a small part of the optimisation potential. In intralogistics the overall system must be monitored. One example of this is the GEBHARDT dynamic handover system. The combination of shuttle and ASRS technology increases efficiency considerably. The reduction of energy consumption often goes hand in hand with the also welcome effect of wear reduction. Both together reduce the operating costs and make the logistics centre more efficient.
