Vanderlande's exhibits at LogiMAT 2016 will focus on warehouse automation in the food, parts and components, fashion, and e-commerce markets. This year's featured products will be a relevant selection from the company’s extensive range of innovative, ergonomic solutions and it will showcase the following concepts on stand 1J21 in Hall 1.
ACP (Automated Case Picking)
Food retailers have to manage conflicts arising from the different value creation chains in stores and distribution centres. Optimisation often has an adverse effect on these chains for distribution centres, and vice versa.
Vanderlande's ACP concept creates a perfect balance between opposing goals in the value creation chain. It also helps food retailers to optimise the customer experience, ergonomics, and reduce CO2 emissions and costs. The company’s ACP solution allows for modular growth and parallel activities, which guarantee availability.
Parts and components
ADAPTO – the first 3D shuttle concept
Increasing labour costs, limited space and many small orders with short delivery times are just some of the challenges facing warehouses and distribution centres. This means there is a continuous search for solutions to reduce operating costs, increase productivity, maximise space and offer an elevated level of service.
ADAPTO is the next logical step in flexible warehouse automation. It is a storage, retrieval and transport concept that offers unique flexibility and availability, enabling warehouses to optimise their service levels.
PICK@EASE – value-added services for multipurpose use ADAPTO is offered in combination with the highly ergonomic PICK@EASE workstations. The introduction of PICK@EASE to the market several years ago was proof of Vanderlande’s pioneering position within the industry.
It commissioned a TÜV Nord-certified study that looked into the influences and effects of different concepts on body movements, posture, muscle groups, circulation and mental aspects. The results were then incorporated into Vanderlande’s goods-to-person picking systems. PICK@EASE workstations have been designed to cope with a range of functions and enable value-added services.
Fashion and e-commerce
AIRTRAX – the modular, flexible and convenient hanging goods concept
AIRTRAX is an innovative and reliable concept for transporting, sorting and storing hanging goods. It delivers benefits throughout any operation, allowing significant volumes of goods to be moved over long distances while coping with changing elevations and complex paths.
It is effective for high-frequency environments, including for example: goods on hangers specifically developed for the fashion industry; the pocket sorter solution suitable for handling non-hanging items and returns; and the carton carrier solution for efficient and user-friendly transportation.
AIRTRAX contains one base on to which all types of carrier modules are fitted to facilitate various functions and enable 3D movements so that existing warehouse capacity can be optimised. It is the first 100% friction-driven concept on the market. AIRTRAX runs without the interruptions associated with traditional chains and fewer controls are required. It is also free from tensioning, which results in longer service intervals and no dirt is transferred to the goods.
