        Warehouse staff and assembly workers have direct access to the required articles from their work station. The goods-to-person principle provides the necessary items. This reduces unnecessary walking, bending, lifting, stretching, or climbing making the process more efficient for the business and more ergonomic for the workers.

        Optimal utilization of storage space
        Kardex’s product range is diverse and variable. Automated storage and retrieval solutions reduce available space by up to 90%, optimally use storage capacity, and enable quick and reliable picking. Dynamic allocation of space means future-proof storage and maximum efficiency, irrespective of how product profiles change over time.

        Efficient and flexible software integration
        Kardex's warehouse management software precisely adapts to storage systems and ensures all processes and orders perform optimally. It integrates seamlessly with all systems, prevents unauthorized access, and minimizes the processing time for individual orders. This results in faster delivery times and reduces costs.

        Automated order provisioning in the shipping area
        In manually handled shipping areas, non-transparent warehouse processes lead to incorrect loading and high return costs. Kardex's automated solutions for buffering and sequencing ensure flexibility as well as quality for the order deliveries.

      • Energy / Mining

      • Automated storage solutions for manufacturing

        Driven by increasing demand due to lower prices, companies working in the oil and gas and energy and mining industry need to work harder than ever before.

        Having the right parts at the right time and in the right place is critical to manufacturing operations.

      • Automotive and Transportation Equipment

      • Production processes for automobiles, airplanes, ships, railroad carriages, and other transportation vehicles range from workshop assembly in small batches to automated robot production. This ensures the intralogistics meet individual requirements.

        Customer benefits

        Safe storage in a small space
        Kardex automated storage solutions make optimum use of available space and reduce footprint requirements by up to 85%. They combine and compactly store items in various shapes and sizes (e.g. large, small, light, heavy) in one or multiple storage systems.

        Kardex offers safe handling and the best possible security for valuable goods. Our lockable systems ensure they stay protected from external influences and unauthorized access. Uniform 400x600 containers store small parts and pallets are used to store large parts.

        Efficient temporary storage
        Efficiently store production parts requiring preparatory steps (e.g., painting, welding, etc.) until needed. Buffer storage allows clean storage and ensures articles remain clearly arranged until picked up for just-in-time production. For example, temporary storage in the shipping area waits until it is ready for departure and temporary storage in the incoming goods department or warehouse waits until it is ready for production.

        Shipping items are transported individually, pre-packed in various-sized cartons or on pallets. Via a conveyor system, they move to the storage system and are automatically scanned, stored, and managed until needed for a national or international order.

        Just-in-time material flow
        For a fast supply, just-in-time, or just-in-sequence, the storage system connects to a conveyor system. A conveyor line or driverless transport system then brings the articles automatically to the correct workstation. This also works the other way around - the articles automatically move from the workstation to intermediate storage and into the storage system.

        High-order volume management and transparency
        Kardex’s fully automated systems handle the storage and retrieval of even large-volume orders in no time at all. Using our efficient warehouse management software, we offer a permanent stock overview, reports on minimum stock levels, and a smooth and fast material flow.

          A reliable and compact design
          From development and manufacturing to customer service, the Horizontal Carousel is a compact, reliable, low-maintenance unit with nearly 100 % availability. It ensures consistent and long-term operational safety.

          Excellent picking performance
          The requested items are transported to the operator quickly, directly, and reliably – without any unproductive travel and search times. For that to happen the Horizontal Carousel always takes the shortest path to the access opening. The display-tool-feature shows the operator which goods and what quantities to pick from which storage location.

          The simultaneous, independent moving stations of a Horizontal Carousel allow for a very fast overall system and high-picking performance. One operator can work off 200 to 400 positions per station per hour. Optical displays on the machine and on the picking station guarantee a pick and put accuracy rate of more than 99%.

          High payloads and optimal space utilization
          The Horizontal Carousel is ideal for the storage and retrieval of small and medium-sized items. Moreover, it is capable of storing items with a maximum payload of 54 tons. The load capacity is chosen according to the application.

          Items are stored compactly in a confined space; this eliminates unproductive travel and picking routes within the warehouse. The actual picking zone is as small as 5 to 10 square meters.

        • Heavy Duty Units- TowerMat

        • The TowerMat and InterMat heavy-duty units are ideal solutions for companies that want to store oversized and extremely heavy goods in an efficient, safe, and compact manner.

          Stock with extremely long dimensions and heavy goods require particularly well thought-out storage logistics. Previously wasted space for storing long goods, metal sheets, tools, pallets, or mesh cages caused extremely complex handling issues and led to higher long-term costs. To avoid this, Kardex supplies the TowerMat vertical life system, a dynamic and flexible solution.


          Large and flat design – the ideal system for sheet metal
          Materials with large surface areas (2,000 x 6,000 mm) are stored compactly in the TowerMat storage lift for sheet metal and automatically transport to the operator. This allows the simple and safe transportation of loads of up to 5,000 kg per tray. To meet the requirements of different storage volumes, Kardex offers unique designs with one or two storage towers.

          Space-saving solutions for long goods
          User-friendliness is important when storing long goods. Fabric rolls, pipes, poles, steel sections, and aluminum/plastic profiles (each up to 10,000 mm in length) can be efficiently stored and fully automatically transported. Additional impressive features include: storing loads up to 5,000 kg, a small footprint, and particularly high-storage density. The flexible option for adapting a vertical lift system makes it possible to meet individual customer requirements, such as directly connecting to operational saws.

          The all-round answer to store pallets
          Future-proof solutions must be individualized. Kardex follows this principle when it comes to the storage logistics of particularly heavy loading equipment such as pallets and mesh cages. The TowerMat’s flexibility and adaptability mean that each tray efficiently stores any material weighing up to 5,000 kg. By adapting the unit to your existing systems and building layout, you achieve optimal productivity in the area of material handling and retrieval.

          Flexible storage for special forms such as tools
          Storing heavy, bulky tools is especially challenging. It is difficult to safely store and retrieve heavy loads and irregular-shaped goods while also saving space. Adapting a unit perfectly to the specifications of the stored goods and the structural environment brings significant benefits in terms of efficiency, reliability, and speed. When optimizing processes, flexibility and performance play a key role.

        • Heavy Duty Units - InterMat

        • The InterMat vertical carousel is perfect for round operations with special requirements. Unused space and long distances interfere with operations and can be expensive. The flexible InterMat carousel offers the ideal solution to this problem.


          Space-saving storage solution for tires
          The paternoster principle has proven especially useful for storing tires. The InterMat carousel is excellent for high-dense storage because it makes full use of the available room height and depth. Tire and car manufacturers benefit from fast access to smaller car tires, large aircraft tires, and heavy rims. This optimized material flow leads to a long-term increase in overall productivity.

          Safe cable reel intralogistics
          It is critical to safely store cable reels and other heavy round items so they do not take up too much space and are easily accessible. InterMat is a carousel designed for this purpose and fits in pits, outdoor areas, or as a T-bridge paternoster. It is extremely user friendly and safe. A loading trolley seamlessly stores and retrieves goods. Sectional roller shutters offer protection from unauthorized access or serve as sluice gates.

        • Stacker Cranes for Pallets and Miniloads

        • Stacker cranes take over the automated storage and retrieval of pallets and miniloads in the warehouse. Their high and compact design ensures efficient space utilization in a high-bay warehouse and in an automated miniload system (AMS).

          The overall performance of the warehouse logistics depends on the storage and retrieval machine. Therefore, when choosing stacker cranes, high quality and performance must be a top priority. The innovative stacker cranes from Kardex Mlog meet these requirements.
