Die von storemaster® entwickelten Schwerlast-Systeme dienen der Material-Zuführung an vorwiegend metallverarbeitenden Maschinen. Zur Wege- u. Zeitersparnis wird versucht, soviel wie möglich der der Maschine zugeordneten Material-Sorten in nächster Maschinen-Nähe zu plazieren und dabei jede einzelne Sorte für einen schnellen Zugriff bereitgestellt zu bekommen. Mit dem effektiven Einsatz der dafür geeigneten MaterialHandlingLagerSysteme verbindet sich neben der Sicherheit beim Transportieren und Lagern, sowie der Verwendung unfall-verhütender ergonomisch durchdachten Handling-Einrichtungen im Besonderen auch eine äußerst raum-sparende Lagerung bei gleichzeitig übersichtlicher Lagerordnung im Sinne einer effizienten Waren- u. Lagerwirtschaft, wie sie durch die 1998 von storemaster® kreierten holzfreien Blechpakete-Lagerung möglich geworden ist. Für Aufbewahrung und Transport dienen speziell auf Materialart, Gewicht und Kubatur des Lagergutes ausgelegte Ladungsträger wie Schubladen, Flats, Gestelle, Paletten und Kassetten. Die Bewegung der Materialien übernehmen Transport- u. Fördergeräte wie Stapler, Krananlagen, Hebezeuge, Manipulatoren und Roboter. Per Kran-, Roboter oder Stapler lassen sich Schubladen bedienen; für die reine Stapler-Bedienung kommen Lagertürme verschiedener Art und Dimensionierung zum Einsatz. Alle Ladungsträger und Systeme zeichnen sich durch besonders hohe Lagerdichte und komfortable Handling-Eigenschaften aus.

Redesigning, expanding and optimizing internal logistics is storemaster’s top expertise.

We plan your material flow in just 5 steps.

Optimal handling of material in production and logistics is our strength. Storemaster collects data and information about your processes, analyzes them carefully and presents you with a well thought-out concept for your material flow. These are the 5 steps of our warehouse planning service:

Step 1: Warehouse planning

New hall, expansion or optimization of an existing hall desired? storemaster advises on all challenges in connection with the entire logistics process from incoming raw materials of sheet metal, long goods and coils to outgoing finished products. We specialize in the optimal flow of materials in companies in the metalworking industry. In the course of the warehouse planning service we design hall layouts in 2D and 3D for a better visualization of the processes and space conditions. Our engineers are well acquainted with the processing machines commonly used in the market. With this knowledge, we take their special characteristics into account from the outset when planning your logistics.

Step 2: Material handling

The most important task of intralogistics is to provide the right material to the in-house production processes on time. The selection of the appropriate load carrier for transport depends on the respective needs. In our warehouse planning service, we find customer-oriented solutions that, in addition to efficient processes, also take into account occupational safety and ergonomics. This includes, for example, perfectly adapted vacuum traverses. Furthermore, heavy-duty transport carts that can be turned on the spot reduce in-house forklift traffic. Our storage systems can also be used as intermediate storage for partially processed material. Here, raw material is cut to size after removal from a storage tower, collected in load carriers or drawer towers and is thus ready for finishing.

Step 3: Remaining plates

The management and storage of scrap metal is becoming increasingly important. Especially with expensive material made of stainless steel or aluminum, sheet metal scrap recycling saves resources and costs. Traditionally, residual sheet metal is placed back on the respective sheet metal pile in an undefined manner or stored collectively. In contrast to conventional residual sheet storage, we attach great importance to further processability. For this reason, storemaster pursues a system in which residual areas are cut to the largest possible, manageable rectangles. This enables space-compressed storage in residual sheet drawers. Assignment to a defined storage location ensures the corresponding storage availability. This makes both further processing and storage of scrap sheets more favorable than, for example, the use of scrap sheet programs with individual article numbers.

Step 4: Warehouse management software

Once the optimal layout of your hall, the storage components for storage, and the intralogistics processes have been determined, the next step is to control your processes. storemaster has developed the tried-and-tested Storekeeper Smart App for this purpose. The software is browser-based and therefore does not require installation on the end devices. It supports different warehouse management methods. The warehouse management system is also capable of managing complex sheet metal warehouses, controlling residual sheet metal, and covering long goods warehouses, coil warehouses and general cargo management. The Storekeeper Smart app is compatible with all handling storage systems, making it usable in most environments. Storekeeper Smart efficiently completes the management of your sheet metal warehouse.

Step 5: Assembly, maintenance and after-sales service

The successful commissioning of your sheet metal storage components requires quick and easy assembly. For this reason, we deliver our storage technology block-assembled. The customer simply sets them up. We take care of shipping optimization and pre-assembly of the largest possible assemblies. If desired, you also have the option of having the elements of the storage system assembled on site by experienced partner companies. The components of our proven systems can be easily reordered even after decades – be it to renew existing ones or to expand a functioning system. We will be happy to advise you on the maintenance and servicing as well as the annual inspection of our racking systems – without expensive maintenance contracts.
