Servus in Action at Schelling Anlagenbau

Servus in Action at Schelling Anlagenbau

Initial Situation

  • Limited space available for pallet store, small parts warehouse and logistics zone with incoming goods, picking and outbound goods zone
  • Use of several different, in part manually operated storage systems
  • Worker-to-the-goods
  • Increasing efficiency in picking of assembly line materials
  • Reducing time and staff overheads in logistics processes
  • Increased picking overhead, long lead times

Customer Benefits

  • Goods-to-the-worker
  • Three workers working simultaneously on a combined station
  • Higher output with less HR and time overhead
  • Space savings due to locating the AKL on the upper floor, small footprint of the connection on the ground floor
  • Short access times, reducing the manual transport to a minimum
  • Ability to adapt the picking performance to the growing material needs in assembly
  • Future company growth can be handled via the system
  • No “searching”

Servus in Action at Schelling

Due to the lack of space at Schelling, Servus implemented a unique solution in which the Servus ARCs transport items over several floors, from incoming goods to automatic small parts storage (AKL) and from the AKL to the picking station. More information on the Servus system at Schelling in Schwarzach can be found in the Schelling Case Study.
