New intralogistics system for Sport-Tec
Companies worldwide trust in systems engineering of psb intralogistics, and in many private households, products can be found that have already been in contact with a system designed by the high-tech company from Pirmasens. The latest project is now being realized »right in front of the door«: Sport-Tec, Europe’s leading mail order company for the physio and fitness sector and also located in Pirmasens, will supply their customers by means of a modern intralogistics solution of psb in the future.
Due to the continuous company growth and the steadily increasing demand for specialized products for physio and ergo therapy, speech therapy, specialist practices, hospitals and rehabilitation clinics as well as the sports and fitness sector, Sport-Tec decided in the 25th year of its existence to automate its storage, picking and dispatch processes.
The new fully automated high-bay warehouse with more than 15.000 storing locations is the Multi Access Warehouse from psb based on the innovative psb shuttle technology. With 12 high-performance shuttles, three tote lifts as well as one shuttle lift, the articles can be stored and retrieved simultaneously on different levels. In addition, there is an automated pallet warehouse for storing Euro pallets as well as two AGVs and conveyor technology to connect the individual system areas. The whole system is controlled by the selektron Warehouse Management System, which has also been developed by psb. After completion, 2000 parcels can be dispatched to the customers each day.
A significant advantage of the system solution designed for Sport-Tec, is the modular scalability of the different areas. This allows that capacity can be easily increased if the company continues to develop positively and thus to further improve efficiency and delivery capability.
In addition to the two systems, which psb has already successfully implemented for WASGAU AG in the direct neighborhood, the order of Sport-Tec represents another milestone for the future-oriented collaboration of two Pirmasens-based companies.
