The increasing demand for products necessitates shorter material turnaround times. This applies to the bulk goods industry with organic waste / bulk recycling, to the cement industry, and to general cargo handling such as, e.g. paper, steel coils and container storage. The requirement stipulates a 24/7 operation with overwhelmingly identical warehouse geometry in old facilities without additional staff deployment.
Our highly flexible crane and warehouse management system with fully adjustable warehouse geometry facilitates the efficient capacity utilisation of existing warehouse space – tailored specifically to your own needs, and with intuitive operator functionality.
Every installation is extensively tested before commissioning using our detailed, in-house solution programme. This provides you with an exact understanding of the working method at an early stage, allowing for changes to be initiated as needed. You can maintain an overview of the plant(s) at any time via secure remote access: 24/7 and worldwide.
In collaboration with leading global manufacturers for cranes and lifting equipment, the engineers at AUCOTEAM GmbH have developed a flexible warehouse management system for the automation of process cranes used with bulk goods. A warehouse and crane management system from AUCOTEAM for a bridge crane system is currently in operation in a fuel storage facility at Fernheizwerk II at the University of Tübingen, which is operated by the Mannheim-based company MVV Enamic GmbH. The equipment here enables fully automatic 24/7 operation. At the same time the operator can also intervene individually.
The key data on the high-performance solution that was developed by AUCOTEAM in collaboration with experts from crane manufacturers is as follows:
In view of our well-founded, industry-specific expertise in the automation of bulk goods warehousing, we received orders for further projects – new build orders and retrofit crane modernisation measures.
Consistent use of standard software
Extensive, free configurable warehouse storage
We develop warehouse management systems and software solutions for fully automated bulk material cranes that incorporate obstacle avoidance control and an anti-sway system. Our customers feel the benefits of working with us as early as during the project development phase, thanks to our extensive industry knowledge; meaning that they can enjoy a comprehensive advisory service for the crane system and its integration into existing IT system and automation environments, in addition to the complex software solution required for crane handling.
