When Ejner Hessel A/S chose EffiMat Storage Technology A/S to develop the ideal storage solution, the process began with an analysis of the needs and the internal flow of the auto repair shop and the warehouse, in order to be able to create an individual solution which fully exploited the potential of the workshop. The most essential part for Ejner Hessel A/S was to save time in the picking process, save space in the warehouse and improve the general working environment.
The solution therefore ended up being two units of the ClassicMat™ vertical lift module, which is developed and designed to exploit the square metres of the warehouse to its fullest and to optimize the picking speed. ClassicMat™ has a light-weight lift construction and PLC-control, which makes it highly efficient. The two units has a footprint of only 25m2, which yields a significant reduction of the need for floorspace.
It was a big wish from Ejner Hessel A/S, that their new storage solution could be integrated with their DMS system. Ejner Hessel A/S uses the DMS-system Autoline which can be integrated with the WMS system, which is the system that the storage robot from EffiMat Storage Technology A/S makes use of.
By integrating the two systems, Ejner Hessel A/S will be capable of planning a flow of spare parts and hereby gain easier access to the wanted parts. This provides a better overview of the stock account and makes inventory a lot less complicated. Fewer parts can be tied to the warehouse, along with an efficient service still being provided to the customers.
