Constantly changing market conditions, pressure to increase flexibility, and an ever-growing range of tools and components often challenge logistics specialists in the mechanical engineering and plant construction industry.

High-performance warehouse processes and a smooth production supply are the basis for flexible and seamless intralogistics.

Warehouse requirements

  • Space savings
  • Efficient storage and retrieval of tools and small parts
  • Buffering of semi-finished products
  • Increased process reliability and transparency
  • Independent and flexible processes
  • Minimized walking distances

Customer benefits

  • High-density storage

    Combined and yet highly compressed storage for tools and components in different sizes and weights reduces footprint up to 85%.

  • Controlled storage environment

    Clean room conditions, temperature-controlled, and humidity-controlled storage for sensitive components.

  • Compact buffering

    Store material temporarily for any amount of time between various production steps.

Many Kardex customers transition from using conventional tool storage in cabinets or shelves. Pallet bays occupy valuable production space and leave warehouse staff struggling with limited space, narrow and long walking distances, and only a poor (often decentralized) stock overview.

Kardex automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) solve these issues and ensure efficient storage and production supply. At the same time, Kardex's warehouse management software (WMS) supports smooth inventory management, so you always know what's in stock. Using reorder points, you can even automatically reorder items that fall below a minimum stock level ensuring production is always well supplied.
