Storage & Warehouse technology

Dusty cement or large-grain clinker brick, shoe boxes or flight luggage - every commodity, every raw material and every product requires suitable storage technology that is tailored to the product characteristics and moved with the correct form of transport. As part of intralogistics, in-house storage systems include the storage facility, the type of storage and the conveyor technology for moving the goods. With our know-how we develop solutions for the cement and chemical industry, for the e-commerce and fashion industry, for airports and for your individual requirements.

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.

Bulk goods storage – longitudinal storage, circular storage and mixing bed for the cement industry

Bulky storage systems store, buffer, mix and homogenize raw materials for the cement industry. The required storage capacity and the flow rate determine the design as a longitudinal storage or circular storage. A mixing bed is used to optimally mix raw materials and store them temporarily. Both outdoors and in halls, a spreader builds up the mound in such a way that as many layers of the same material as possible are created. With the aid of a bridge scraper, the maximum mixing effect is achieved. In a coal store, mixing also takes place in a longitudinal or circular store.

Early baggage storage systems at the airport

Also known as Early Baggage Storage (EBS), the early baggage storage systems store bags and suitcases that are checked in numerous hours before departure. The temporary buffering of luggage can be done on conveyor belts or in the rack-based CrisStore® storage system. This system offers a space-saving design for low storage costs and 100% traceability (tracking) of the baggage items.
