“The implementation of the AutoStore solution marks a crucial step in modernizing our logistics processes and fully exploiting our future growth potential,” says Walter Fischer, Operations Director at EagleBurgmann.

High-density storage for optimized logistics processes

The aim of implementing the new automated warehouse is to centralize logistics with maximum density and storage capacity. The consolidation of small, decentralized storage areas at the site will create valuable production space. The new AutoStore solution creates space for approx. 19,800 bins and is operated by 24 state-of-the-art Red Line (R5) robots. The AutoStore will store raw parts, semi-finished parts to supply production and spare parts, which will significantly increase workflow efficiency.

The project in Eurasburg not only includes the AutoStore system; the project also includes the conversion and integration of the existing conveyor system into a new control concept. Kardex can also provide an annual service contract to guarantee maximum availability and long-term support throughout the entire life cycle of the system.

The 'Kardex style' is a perfect fit for EagleBurgmann

The decisive factor for EagleBurgmann in the collaboration with Kardex was the seamless integration of the AutoStore store and the respective processes into the customer's existing SAP WM. The software solution was implemented with the partner StatusC; however technical expertise alone was not the only decisive factor.
“We were very impressed by the 'Kardex style,” explains Walter Fischer. “I felt that EagleBurgmann and Kardex were on the same wavelength right from the start. It was important for us to have a strong partner, both in the sales phase and during implementation, who would guide us safely through the whole process,” he continues.




Falko Menz, Operations Manager at EagleBurgmann, adds “I’m looking forward to the launch of the AutoStore system, and my logistics team being able to work with the Kardex AutoStore team.”
