Hans Müller HMP Medizintechnik GmbH employs around 200 people at several locations throughout Germany.
In order to make the logistics future-oriented, a move to a new building with an automated logistics system was planned. After a comprehensive logistics planning, the decision was made for the new location in Fuerth for a three-storey shelving system with space for approx. 9000 container storage locations, in the size 600x400mm. In terms of conveyor technology, it is designed for station picking with 6 stations and buffer locations in order to optimally utilise the space situation. Both the goods receiving stations and the packing stations are connected to the racking system via conveyor technology. For fast-moving items, there is a separate racking area for palletised goods. With this automation, a tripling of the current logistical throughput is possible. In future, up to 1,000 consignments a day will be processed from the warehouse, most of which will be sent as parcels or packages. In addition to providing equipment and supplies, the company has a service area where equipment is cleaned, disinfected, tested and repaired. For this purpose, approx. 250 additional withdrawals from the spare parts warehouse are required daily. The warehouse management software and material flow control system KlinkWARE 11 is connected to the ERP system optimised for medical products and controls all processes in the warehouse. For the future, an increase of the assortment to up to 10,000 articles is expected.
