KNAPP’s smart warehouse for intelligent production logistics
KNAPP is opening up new opportunities for manufacturing industries with new approaches, and a mix of innovative and tried and tested technologies. Summarized in the term smart warehouse, KNAPP offers intelligent solutions for production logistics that not only ensure maximum flexibility and investment security, but also allow efficiency, profitability, ergonomics and quality to take centre stage.
The systems of Logistics 4.0 are fully networked and offer a secure and stable platform in a dynamic market environment. At the same time, these systems need to have sufficient flexibility and capacity to keep up with all current demands. At the CeMAT, which will take place April 23–27, as part of the industrial fair in Hannover, KNAPP will present its all-in-one, smart warehouse solutions for production logistics.
Flexible storage and transport
A storage system that is flexible in terms of function as well as size can handle various functions, such as space-effective and secure storage, temporary storage of goods, semi-finished products or raw materials. The storage system is the heart of the solution and supplies all the work areas right on time. KNAPP’s free-moving Open Shuttles complement classic conveyors, using swarm intelligence to distribute the workload, supply work areas and take care of transport tasks.
Intuitive work stations
Work stations in production and assembly areas are supplied according to the goods-to-person principle. The efficient networking of man and machine is at the heart of the work station design. KNAPP’s Pick-it-Easy work stations combine efficiency, ergonomics and usability. The modern easyUse user interfaces ensure intuitive, accurate operation.
With its software product lines KiSoft and SAP®EWM by KNAPP, KNAPP offers customized solutions that meet all the demands of production logistics. KNAPP remains true to its slogan, making complexity simple, with its all-in-one software solutions, designing complex processes for transparency and manageability.
Fully-automatic solutions such as the Pick-it-Easy Robot are suited to applications where a high throughput is required over a longer period of time, where high quality is also essential and where the human resource reaches its limits. In combination with shuttle systems, smart interaction between personnel and machines is established, which increases efficiency, quality and profitability.
