Warehouse and material flow solutions are increasingly supported and automated by robots. With our experts, we develop innovative robotics solutions, which we seamlessly integrate into your systems and connect in terms of software technology as a system integrator or general contractor. Our logistics consultants will find the right solution for you and provide you with advice and support.

Robot technologies in the warehouse have many advantages. Robots work around the clock, independent of shifts, and reduce personnel costs. Arduous and time-consuming work can be taken over safely and reliably by robots. Scalability, fast expansions and high performance make robot technology so interesting. Robots increase logistics performance and offer cost-efficient solutions. This reduces operating costs and significantly increases efficiency in the warehouse.

The transport and storage of containers is being revolutionised by AI-controlled warehouse robots, as vehicles such as the Skypod® robots from Exotec® find their own paths, optimise them and coordinate with each other. Klinkhammer has such flexible, scalable systems in its product range as automated robot-assisted small parts warehouses, because the warehouse robots can adapt flexibly to performance peaks, order situations and structures. The robots remove totes, in direct access, from the up to 12-metre high racking system and move to the transfer point or to the workstation. Automatic insertion and storage of cartons on trays can also be provided. Skypod thus offers a real alternative to conventional shuttle systems, as the static conveyor pre-zone and performance-limiting shuttle lifters are eliminated. Robotic vehicles can be removed from the fleet or added at any time and picking workstations expanded. The Skypod system has easy scalability in terms of set-up, tear-down and conversion as well as picking performance, system performance and storage capacity.

Robot-based carton handling

With an automatic carton cutter, shipping carton erector, carton volume reducer, delivery note inserter or carton sealer and labeller, high performance can be achieved while avoiding time-consuming or cumbersome operations that were previously performed by logistics staff. For example, a carton is cut open on the top side without affecting the objects inside. In the packaging, the carton height is automatically reduced and shipping costs are saved. A carton lid can also be attached automatically. The conveyor-connected dispatch line is connected via Klinkhammer control technology and displayed on the screen in the system visualisation so that problems can be solved immediately via remote maintenance.

Robot-based order picking

In robot-based order picking for small parts, so-called piece picking, permanently high outputs of 600 to 1000 picks per hour can be achieved. The robots work reliably and safely day and night in multi-shift operation. With high efficiency, maximum reliability and minimum operating costs, the ROI is often achieved within 2 years. Integrated cameras detect each individual product and can also scan a machine-readable pharmaceutical central number for medicines, for example, thus ensuring identification and control during the picking process. As a result, the error rate is extremely low. Robotic Piece Picking not only increases picking accuracy, but also efficiency."

Robot-based pallet handling: palletising / depalletising

Robot-based pallet handling, such as conveyor-connected automatic depalletisers and palletisers or pallet wrappers, can automate heavy or complex work steps. The output of palletisers is approx. 300 cartons per hour, depending on the system. Palletising robots thus support humans in laborious tasks and do not show any signs of fatigue even after many hours of work.

AMR - Autonomous Mobile Robots

Autonomous mobile robots are ideal for low room heights up to approx. 2.7 metres. They transport pallets or entire racks of goods to the order picker. This results in a significant reduction of walking distances for order pickers. The racks are quickly installed, easy to expand and flexible in terms of dismantling and reconstruction, should a move to another hall or a change in the hall layout be planned. With this solution, no rigid racking systems or conveyor technology are necessary. Compared to highly automated systems, operation can be set-up in a very short time.

AGV - Automated Guided Vehicles

AGVs are used for internal, automatic material handling. An AGV reduces the need for personnel, increases the productivity of the material flow and can be adapted to the required performance. Compared to continuous conveyor technology, an AGV is flexible and can be easily adjusted to changed layouts of halls or new production areas. Compared to many highly automated systems, start-up and later expansion is possible in a short time.
