German motorhome manufacturer Capron, part of the Erwin Hymer Group, has commissioned Jungheinrich to expand the warehouse capacity at its production site in Neustadt, Saxony. The Jungheinrich solution comprises a single-aisle racking warehouse for single-depth or double-depth storage. The rack operating equipment utilised in this expansion has been supplied by Jungheinrich subsidiary MIAS, and has a load capacity of 2 T. The new in-house racking warehouse serves as a buffer for raw materials, purchased parts and auxiliary materials. Jungheinrich's project-specific materials handling technology transports special load carriers into goods receipt, production and goods outward. Depending on the requirements, two different load carriers with the dimensions of 1.15 x 1.25 m or 2.5 x 1.25 m are automatically provided in goods receipt as an internal system carrier. After loading, they are stored in the new automated high-bay warehouse. The monitoring and control of the entire in-house material flow takes place via the Jungheinrich Warehouse Management System (WMS). This ensures process-reliable, transparent and efficient warehouse management. Steve Richmond, director - logistics systems, Jungheinrich UK, says the Saxony project exemplified his company's approach: "By combining product innovation with the information flow, the material flow, and linking these through digitalisation, Jungheinrich creates the right solution for each one of our customers in accordance with their unique business drivers." Jungheinrich Logistics Systems, part of Jungheinrich UK Ltd, specialises in the design and installation of intelligent intralogistics solutions.
