The material flow in complex manufacturing processes requires an interlocking of manual activities and partially or fully automated processes. A wide variety of components and products have to be managed, i.e. transported to the workstations and through the entire production process in a timely and sequenced manner. In this context, production-related warehouses pose a challenge in terms of space requirements and order.
Schönenberger overhead transport system
consistently shifts the transport and storage of goods upwards. Depending on the height of the room, one or two storage levels and thus new space for dynamic storage can be created. This clears the way for short walking distances, compact production, and an overview and cleanliness. Subsequent extensions of the overhead conveyor system are easily possible.
Process reliability and flexibility
Parts and products are recorded electronically and tracked throughout the entire production chain – the basis for intelligent production management and process reliability. Automated loading and unloading stations complement the intelligent parts management and relieve employees at the workstations.
Sufficient flexibility in the production process is provided not only by dynamic buffer and storage areas, but also by a wide range of load carriers.
