Leading tool manufacturer GEDORE with new central shipping

GEDORE is establishing a new central shipping warehouse for its sites in Remscheid. BSS is acting as general contractor for equipping the warehouse with a four-aisle, double-depth automated small parts storage with a storage capacity of 14,400 containers. There is an option for expanding the warehouse by one aisle. Order picking takes place at 4 multi-picking work stations in the automated small parts storage area.

The scope of the warehouse management also includes radio data operated mobile shelving and 15 packing stations with automatic label printer for the carrier labels and automatic package strapping machine. An on-board stacker terminal is used in the mobile shelving. The bay bar code is scanned during stocking to avoid operating errors. The WMS sets stocking/removal cycles to optimise the stacker path, resulting in high removal capacity. The BSS WMS is coupled to the ERP system Brain, which runs on an AS400.
