Kardex Mlog Refurbishes REYHER’S High-Bay Warehouse

7 November 2022, Company News


REYHER, the fasteners and fixing technology company, commissioned Kardex Mlog with refurbishing its high-bay warehouse in Hamburg-Altona, Germany. The project involved the step-by-step replacement of five older stacker cranes with modern machines of type Kardex MSingle B. The work took place during ongoing operations and was to be completed by October 2022. As part of the project, the aisle equipment was also updated and a new camera system was installed to enable precise positioning. Kardex Mlog guaranteed high availability of the high-bay warehouse the entire time.
The first three stacker cranes were replaced during May, June and August of 2022. The remaining two machines were replaced during September and October 2022. The old cranes were removed, and the new ones installed via an opening in the roof of the high-bay warehouse. The refurbishment time frame was tight and required excellent collaboration between the customer, the installation specialists, and commissioning personnel.

Kardex Mlog’s refurbishment specialists required 12 days to shut down and dismantle each stacker crane and install a modern Kardex MSingle B. This timeframe included commissioning and replacing the rails and the conductor line. Commissioning in each case could only be carried out over the weekend. Immediately following installation, the new machines produced a high throughput performance. The new stacker cranes each have two load handling devices and facilitate single-deep storage and retrieval. The devices, manufactured at Kardex Mlog’s. headquarters in Neuenstadt am Kocher, are 34.5 meters tall.
