                In more than 40 years Unitechnik has realized a multitude of complex special storages. Coil storage, lengthy load storage, air cargo containers, theatre sceneries or automatic parking garages – the solution competence of our engineers is without limits. Thanks to the extensive expertise within the experienced Unitechnik team we develop for every special request and for every storage type the fitting, tailored solution.

                Particularly for the specific requirements from the metal industry, we have arranged precisely fitting concepts. In the coil storage the individual coils have been stowed away compactly and safely – and yet available at any moment. A lengthy load storage creates room for every type of steel profile and similar individual parts. Heavy duty pallet warehouses even sustain the weight of large sized stacks of steel sheet.

                Moreover, Unitechnik uses its automation and process control knowledge also for extraordinary storage solutions. E.g. we have realized scenery warehouses for the continuous theatre performance and automatic parking garages.

                The following special warehouses provide you with an overview:
                • Coil and collar storage
                • Lengthy good storage
                • Heavy duty pallet storage
                • Air cargo container storage
                • Theatre scenery warehouse
                • Automatic parking garages
            • Transport Systems

            • Intelligent transport systems for optimal material flow

              A transport technique developed by Unitechnik ensures efficient material flow in your logistics center. In an ideal way it connects the
              function areas goods input, storage, order picking, packaging and
              loading area, and goods output with one another. Intelligent, reliable and route optimized. The advanced process knowledge of the Unitechnik engineers is the basis for a systematic transport technique.

              A whole range of automated transport systems can be chosen from: chain conveyors, wheel conveyors, belt conveyors, electric monorails, sometimes lifts and elevators. The experts from Unitechnik can determine which transport technique can be used efficiently for your specific material flow. Objectively and manufacturer independently. In this we measure efficiency according to the criteria of energy consumption, transport performance and usage costs.

              The selection of the suitable vehicle systems takes place in an equally practiced and process oriented way. Whether route trains, transport systems without driver, or an electric monorail - decisive is the optimization of your material flow. In this, Unitechnik sees the transport technique as part of the whole. Also, we integrate the company own control technique (SPS level) in a total system. The cooperation of UniWare and SPS is our strength - and ultimately to your benefit. As a result the best performances of the transport systems can be realized. As general contractor we care for the total service regarding your transport systems.

              Possible transport systems for an automated material flow, are:
              • Chain conveyor
              • Wheel conveyor
              • Belt conveyor
              • Electric monorails
              • Lifts and elevators
              • Transport systems without drivers
                • Commisioning Systems

                • Many order picking systems – one expert for the realization

                  Order picking means making available a partial quantity from a total quantity present in the logistics center. Either by customer order or for production requirement. Unitechnik advises with the selection of the fitting order picking systems. Moreover, we take care of the perfect integration of the order picking zones in your intralogistical processes. The order picking is an integral part of our warehouse management system „UniWare". The highly developed warehouse management system supports all current order picking procedures. Meanwhile there is a multitude of order picking systems, which can be classified according to one of two basic principles „stock-to-person" or „person-to-stock". With automated, paperless systems like „pick-by-voice" and „pick-by-light" for instance, the error rates are reduced to a minimum. The adaptation of the order picking system to the individual logistics processes of our customers is an important step within the framework of our overall projects.

                  The most important order picking systems at a single glance:

                  Pick-by-light
                  a light signal shows the storage compartment and the number of the items to be picked. The picker confirms the picking of the ordered quantity form the storage compartment.

                  Pick-to-light
                  mostly in combination with the „stock-to-person" principle. Several orders are picked at the same time. The light signal shows the order for which the next item is destined.

                  Pick-by-voice
                  a voice-guided order picking system. The picker receives the orders through computer voices through a headphone and he can also confirm by voice.

                  Pick-by-vision
                  a special innovative form of order picking. The picker receives the necessary information through a pair of data glasses directly shown in his field of vision. The signals through the glasses guide him via the best possible route to the next position.

                  Pick per handheld
                  the picker accesses his orders onto the display of his mobile data terminal, which he holds in his hand. The taking of the goods is confirmed by scan.

                  Pick & pack
                  a procedure, through which the taken items are placed directly into the transport packaging. Typical for the fast order picking in the mail order business.

                  Multistage order picking
                  the total order quantity of all orders for a particular processing time is obtained in one go. Only then, in a second processing step, an allocation to the individual orders takes place. Typical for large order volumes such as in e-commerce.

                  Multi-order-picking
                  several orders are picked together constantly. The picker saves time and can work along the most optimal route.

                  Automatic order picking
                  if requested, the order picking can also be automated extensively,
                  e.g. through robots or automats.
                  The experts of Unitechnik would be pleased to advise you.

                                                                • Automated Baggage Loading

                                                                • Unipack - Automated flight baggage loading

                                                                  Modern airports have an automatic baggage transport installation at their disposal, which transports the pieces of baggage from the check-in desk to the baggage loading belt of the aircraft. On the way there, the pieces of baggage are automatically X-rayed, temporarily stored and sorted. However, with the loading a manual and physically demanding work begins. Usually, the pieces of baggage are manually stacked into a flight container (ULD), or onto a baggage cart (ramp cart). Doing this, a worker will move approx. 16 tons of weight per shift.
                                                                  The automated baggage loading cell Unipack accomplishes this step of the procedure through a buckling arm robot. The special feature here is the patented „gripper" of the robot. It consists of a telescopable surface with an end stop. As a result, the telescopic surface adapts itself precisely to the piece of baggage. This amongst other things works out beneficially for the actual loading procedure, as the maneuverability inside the container - particularly behind the spaces which are not accessible from the front - is increased substantially. The robot moves with its load precisely above the pre-estimated spot in the container. The robot gripper retracts its telescopic surface very quickly and the baggage piece is placed down on the desired spot (gravity principle). The patented system meets the requirements, which are worldwide placed on future-proof baggage logistics in view of safety, performance and ergonomics.

                                                                  Functional principle

                                                                  • 3D measurement of the inside space of the flight container for the assessment of the current loading state

With this procedure, slag is continuously skimmed from the zinc bath's surface and temporarily stored in a special tank. Depending on the filling level, the tank is emptied and the slag recycled. Specifically for this, Unitechnik has constructed a skimming tool and the corresponding movement strategies to gently skim the zinc dross. The control of such installations can be integrated in the existing installation control, or be realized independently with the corresponding interfaces.
