Kardex's warehouse modernization portfolio

To increase the lifetime of your logistics facility, it must always be state-of-the-art. Kardex's customized warehouse modernization services maximize your plant's performance and availability without disrupting daily operations.

Processes change, businesses evolve, and inventories grow. Kardex's modular and scalable solutions easily adapt to your changing requirements. They provide maximum flexibility and empower you to prepare facilities for the future. To top this off, warehouses maintain daily operations during the transition.

Today's logistics demand powerful, reliable, and flexible systems with 24/7 plant availability and high data transparency and security. This is impossible to achieve in manual warehouses.

Thanks to Kardex's modular automated solutions that integrate seamlessly into existing structural and IT environments, warehouse performance and dynamics improve significantly.

Components and systems from Kardex are often in use for decades. However, intensive use, environmental influences, new demands on warehouse logistics, changed warehouse processes, higher throughput rates, or different types of pallets can, in some cases, mean that entire units need replacing. Kardex can replace worn out parts, but also complete storage and retrieval machines, or conveying system units. This includes vertical transfer devices or distribution vehicles and works regardless of the original manufacturer.

Modern components are also more capable, require less maintenance, and, in the event of breakdown, they can be sourced faster than older obsolete parts.

Modernize and upgrade control systems

The intelligence of your logistic facility relies on the control system. It is significantly important to keep it up to date with the latest technology. An outdated control system is bound to result in plant downtime and performance failures.

Upgrade and replace IT systems

Reliable software solutions are equally as important for the efficiency and availability of your plant as hardware components.

Current software systems are expandable and offer functions for business analysis and material flow optimization. It is, therefore, necessary to ensure that your software is always supported.

Install security concepts

An integrated security concept is indispensable for your logistics system. In addition to guaranteeing the safety of operating personnel, it also provides unrestricted machine availability which ensures productivity.

Integrate energy-efficient tactics

Energy efficiency is the key to economic and sustainable operations. The Kardex energy check identifies areas that are eating up electricity and where savings are possible. Together with you, we create a sustainable refurbishment plan to lower energy consumption and reduce CO2 emissions.

Maintenance of a Vertical Carousel Module

Modify existing storage systems

Kardex systems grow together with your business. From the height of the machines and the control system to the configuration and number of containers, trays, or carriers; our modular systems adapt as needed to maximize efficiency, user-friendliness, and meet new requirements.

  • “ Thanks to the test set-up, when it came to the actual refurbishment on site, we were able to install and commission a working and effective system. Replacement of the picking devices went very smoothly and was completed on time. ”
