Just-in-time retrieval of spare parts.
Whether operating in the automotive industry, in mechanical engineering, manufacturing, or electrical engineering, companies involved in the mass production of a wide range of goods are familiar with the problem of efficiently supplying their assembly areas with components and spare parts. A smooth material flow is of paramount importance here due to the fast assembly line speed and high production figures.
Especially for these companies, Kardex Remstar now provides an innovative concept for improving the process of supplying assembly areas in the form of an optimized add-on solution for the Vertical Buffer Module.
It involves pre-picked order boxes being stored temporarily in an LR 35 prior to assembly and retrieved by a nearby production line as and when needed. The LR 35 unit’s fast retrieval times and high order picking performance ensure that the necessary parts are quickly on hand, always guaranteeing just-in-time delivery. Incorrectly picked orders are also prevented, ensuring that the right components are available at all times.
Besides significantly increasing order picking performance, employee costs are also cut and the structure of intralogistics processes is improved. This establishes an optimal basis for a perfect material flow when used in combination with existing conveyor technology.
Advantages at a glance:
- Just-in-time delivery of goods to the assembly area
- Significantly improved order picking performance
- Error-free order picking
- Flexibility in terms of dimensions, integration, and additional features
- Ergonomic operation
- High energy efficiency
- Fewer employees needed
- Optimization of storage space and volume
