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 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.

  • Automated storage and retrieval cranes (AS/RS)
  • Shuttle systems, dedicated to a single bay level 
  • Multi-level shuttle: New KlinCAT®
  • Shuttle system with level change
  • Autonomous shuttle
  • Forklift

Our innovative KlinCAT® multi-level shuttle system is the way into the future. The hybrid of automatic storage/retrieval crane and shuttle system gives the warehouse a completely new efficiency.
