Paint transport at Hostmann with special curve control

The raw material and finished goods warehouse planned and handed over turnkey by BSS had the special challenge that the transport of unsecured paint containers on highly dynamic transport carriages and stacker cranes had to be carried out with special curve control to avoid damping times after deceleration. The single-depth high bay warehouse with 4 aisle-bound stacker cranes for storing Europallets, mesh pallets and paint containers was constructed in silo-design, including ceiling and wall panelling.

Further special characteristics are the automated loading and unloading of robot palletising cells and the pallet order picking stations following the "goods to man" principle with direct linking to the high bay storage. The order picking stations were installed on dedicated steel platforms. SAP is the host system for managing customer orders.
