High-bay warehouses

Storage and order-picking of wood-based panels in the furniture and panel industry

Let panels “pile high”

High-bay warehouse with stack conveyor system for medium and high performance requirements

Storage space is scarce and expensive, and especially panel materials take up a lot of floor space. When the available space is limited, our high-bay warehouses are the solution. They ensure perfect warehousing & logistics by offering unlimited access to each individual panel, a high degree of user comfort and, if required, complete stack handling. The faster a panel transits through the storage process and the less space it takes, the more cost-effective the process will be.

In our high-bay warehouse, single panels are handled by a telescopable vacuum pick-up device. Stacks are carried using telescopes or a multi-chain conveyor on a stacker crane which performs the order picking. In this process, the stacker crane – which is available in different designs – moves on two bearing rails. The maximum construction height is 12 metres, and the maximum length is 100 metres.

Intelligent panel handling, practical details and powerful drives ensure short processing times and dead times, hence allowing for short work cycles and raising industrial productivity. In this context, our manual saws guarantee dimensional accuracy, cleanness and intelligent panel handling and – in high-end segments – extremely high cutting capacities.
