THE END OF TUGGER TRAINS
Can a tugger train withstand the demands of individualisation?
As a result of digitalisation and globalisation, companies are faced with ever-increasing demands, particularly in terms of cost and process efficiency. Increasing individualisation of products and their ever shorter life cycles require ever greater flexibility in the after-sales service.
We are convinced that a route train system cannot guarantee this fast and precise supply due to a certain inertia and the cyclical timetable.

DEMAND ASSESSMENT THROUGH INTEGRATION
Fully automatic replenishment control and supply of small and large load carriers (SLC/LLC) by driverless transport systems
We set new standards by integrating and combining the innovative technologies eKanban, Auto-ID products and AGV (Automated Guided Vehicles).
This combination enables the necessary reaction speed even and especially in unplanned situations. The determination of requirements and subsequent reporting to a superordinate server is reliably carried out in connection with the customer’s own ERP system and through our long-established software-based eKanban system ID.EPC®.
The order of the call-off system initiates the fully automatic retrieval of the materials as well as the subsequent exact provision of the required quantity in the supermarket or also in the AKL (automatic small parts warehouse). Depending on the prioritisation, the independently navigating AGVs transport the transport units already pre-assembled in the supermarket. They then transfer the replenishment units broken down into individual containers fully automatically and precisely by means of a lifting device directly into the individual channel of the production rack.
If you have an small parts warehouse, the ID.ADD® can fill itself automatically-
With this system solution you can also organise the transport and provision of your large load carriers (LLC).
With our system we offer you the possibility to call up 100% of your replenishment requirements fully automatically and in real time. The replenishment supply is also fully automatic from the supermarket/station/ AKL to the production shelf or to the point of consumption.
In contrast to cost-intensive manual solutions or rigid route trains, the material replenishment supply can be carried out in highly individualized assembly and production environments with high precision and flexibility.
This considerable dynamization of the replenishment process also ensures significant savings in space requirements by reducing the volume of material provided at the point of consumption.
You achieve a smoothing and optimization of the supply processes. Peaks, which often occur especially during shift changes, are completely eliminated.
Your supply process becomes transparent and there is neither over- nor undersupply. The elimination of manual processes means that deliveries are only made when there is a real need.
