Otto Bock – New logistics centre for rehabilitation equipment

BSS is equipping the new logistics centre for Otto Bock, an important manufacturer of microprocessor-controlled prostheses and wheelchairs, with state-of-the-art storage and order picking equipment.

The facility consists of a two-aisle pallet storage with connected handling equipment and a two-aisle automated small parts storage with access and exit conveyor tracks. Extensive handling equipment connects the order picking level with the stocking/removal level using lifting gear. Double-depth storage is used in the high bay storage as well as in the automated small parts storage. The material flow computer communicates with the BSS PLCs and the customer warehouse management system.

In December 2009 the customer decided to build a new high bay warehouse for foam blocks at the Duderstadt site. Under the general contractor management of TGW, BSS was commissioned with the complete automation equipment of the stacker cranes and pallet handling equipment as well as the visualisation.
