Kardex Modernizes MOSCA's Intralogistics with Smart Automated Storage Solutions

24 June 2024, Company News

MOSCA, a traditional family-owned engineering company, is centralizing and streamlining its operations to support its growth and maintain its position as a leader in strapping technology. The new system from Kardex not only meets MOSCA's current needs but also provides scalable solutions to accommodate future expansion.


The upgraded system features three Kardex Miniload-in-a-Box, two Kardex Shuttle 500, and the strategic relocation of two existing Megalifts. Additionally, the Kardex Drive interface ensures seamless integration with MOSCA's SAP systems, facilitating enhanced operational efficiency and communication across platforms.

This collaboration marks a significant milestone in modernizing MOSCA's logistics operations by replacing its outdated existing solution with Kardex's advanced automated system.

Key benefits of the new system include:

- Space efficiency: The new system will save approximately 23% of floor space, allowing MOSCA to optimize the available space in its facility.

Scalability: The configuration of the new system supports potential growth, with capabilities to expand storage space efficiently.

Cost savings: Reduction in labor costs will be achieved by reducing the number of operators required, thanks to a more efficient system layout.

Reliability and future-proofing: The modern system addresses the availability issues of spare parts, securing MOSCA's operations against potential downtimes.

Enhanced safety and ergonomics: The design of the new system minimizes the physical strain on workers, contributing to a safer and more productive working environment.

Oliver Schmidt, System Sales Manager at Kardex, commented: " Our early involvement in the project resulted in a scalable solution that prepares MOSCA for future growth.”

Jürgen Ernst from MOSCA noted: "The collaboration with Kardex allows us to significantly enhance our operations. This modernization prepares us well for our future business needs."

This implementation at MOSCA highlights Kardex's dedication to providing customized, technologically advanced intralogistics systems designed to meet the specific operational demands of the mechanical engineering industry.
