Automated Small-Parts Warehouse

A small-parts warehouse is designed for lightweight, small units that are stored in totes, cardboard boxes or on trays. Klinkhammer offers systems tailored to your individual needs and analyses which type of small-parts warehouse suits best to your requirements depending on the load supports, loaded goods, performance requirements and fields of application. The existing storage space is optimally used, thus guaranteeing high profitability. Automated small-parts warehouses are operated by means of storage and retrieval cranes, warehouse robots or shuttles.

An automated small-parts warehouse is especially designed for light and small products. With the aid of storage and retrieval cranes and shuttles trading units are always readily to hand and quickly at their destination. Intelligently planned and optimally designed, it is possible to build high-performing small-parts warehouses even in halls with a small footprint. Short loading and unloading times, high capacity and a stable construction make a small-parts warehouse an important factor for production reliability.

Warehouse vehicles

An automated small-parts warehouse also needs the appropriate warehouse vehicles. Though small-parts warehouses are also suitable for normal fork-lift truck operation, however, AS/RS and shuttle supported warehouse systems are really efficient. They are fully automatic and ensure shortest access times. Thanks to the use of automatic shuttles the racks can be installed close to each other. This saves valuable storage space. To be precise, we offer for our small-parts warehouses automatic storage/retrieval cranes, level-bound shuttle systems, multi-level shuttles, shuttle systems with level change and autonomous shuttle systems.

Saving energy for the storage and retrieval system with Super Caps

By using Super Caps, energy for the storage and retrieval system in the automated small-parts warehouse or high-bay pallet warehouse can be saved by feeding the braking energy of the storage and retrieval system directly back into the device. This is possible with the help of Super Caps as a storage medium. With this sustainable, modern technology, the operator can save up to 40% energy, as the energy requirements of the storage and retrieval systems are significantly reduced. Power peaks in the supply network can be absorbed and reduced by the energy storage systems. As a result, the infrastructure such as cables, UPS, transformer and fuses can be designed smaller and thus offer potential for savings.
