Hilden, 28.08.2014 and 04.09.2014 – At the last Thursdays, around 50 invited guests have participated to the “INNOVATIONSTAG LOGISTIK 2014” at the KUKKO Tool manufacture in Hilden.

The BSS Materialflussgruppe as a general contractor conceived in 2011 the fully automated small parts warehouse for the family-owned tool manufacture and achieved this turnkey project in 2012 / 2013. This state-of-the-art logistic system, which is not only conceived for articles storage and dispensing is also working as a kind of central nervous system and connects incoming goods, production, warehousing, fitting, packaging and shipment. It has been presented in details to the members of the German Tool Manufacturers Association (Fachverband Werkzeugindustrie FWI) and also to logistic experts. The provision and disposal of the automatic small parts warehouse (in German AKL) is made by a sophisticated container conveyor system, which also includes a multiple picking station in its technic, where up to three orders can be commissioned simultaneously using the "goods to person" principle.

The guests had the opportunity to see those new logistic processes close up.  Martin Gräb, manager of the BSS Materialflussgruppe, explained in a pleasantly informal atmosphere during this tour through the facilities, how other companies also can make profit of such innovative solutions.

This innovation day was a successful, varied and informative event which happened for the first time in this form but for sure will be continued.

BSS would like to take this opportunity to thank the KUKKO tool manufacture for this successful day and for its active cooperation.
