Storage Systems for Raw Materials, Products and Airline luggage
Definition of storage technology
Storage technology is required for the storage and transport of goods, commodities and raw materials within an operating facility. In the first place, storage technology refers to the entire storage equipment such as shelving and racking systems. To this belongs, shelf racks, pallet racks, mobile racks, flow racks, storage platforms, cantilever racks and containers for items that are difficult to stack. The transport equipment for conveying the goods such as forklifts, belt conveyors, roller conveyors and robots are also part of the storage technology. The properties of the raw material or the goods determine the type of storage and specify the technical leeway. Flat goods storage, long goods storage or shelf-less bulk storage are common examples. In cooperation with packaging technology, storage technology ensures a sustainable supply chain and creates clarity and order in internal warehouses. Finally, operating equipment such as EDP systems, warehouse management systems, measuring, counting and weighing devices complete the warehouse technology.
Environmental storage technology
This special part of storage technology combines environmental protection, occupational health and safety and the storage of hazardous substances in order to ensure safe and environmentally friendly storage. Of course, economic aspects also play a major role here. Facilities in hazardous materials warehouses include drip pans, drum filling stations, hazardous materials containers and fire protection containers.
