Thyssenkrupp Schulte, the German distribution unit within the thyssenkrupp Materials Services division, has invested in a new high-rack storage system at its Radebeul site.
The new system paves the way for automated materials warehousing. In the future, this will allow the loading sequence and warehouse handling to be optimised with the help of a system, Kallanish learns from the company.
With dimensions of 21 metres high, 17m wide and 59m long, the high-rack offers an efficient use of space that creates additional storage capacity for tk Schulte’s eastern regional chapter, the company points out. In total, over 6,000 tonnes of long material can be stored in the 2,020 cassettes of the high-rack.
The storage system supports the company-wide goal of CO2-savings, since energy is recovered via dynamic energy storage systems during automated processes. The increased storage capacity for materials will also significantly reduce transports from other warehouses in future. These are small but important steps towards achieving the goal of climate neutrality at thyssenkrupp Schulte by 2030, the firm concludes.
