‘Tailor-made solutions’ are intralogistics solutions introduced by BEUMER Group through a team of specialists.
With an aim of conducting feasibility studies, creating and evaluating various concepts, managing projects from engineering and design through assembly and commissioning to inspection, the solution would come from one source.
Effective intralogistics are becoming an increasingly decisive competitive factor for companies from various sectors. They are increasingly relying on automated systems, for example to be able to react to a greater variety of products and packages.
The company manufactures intralogistics systems for conveying, loading, palletising, packaging, sortation and distribution. Small and mid-sized companies in particular must be able to adapt their production flexibly to continuously changing handling and storage requirements.
“A reason is for example the increasing variety of options", says the engineer knowledgeable of customer requirements. "In addition, there are poorly stackable or non-stackable as well as geometrically different containers." Effective investment planning requires a high level of consulting and problem solving competence on the part of the providers already during the concept and offer phase.
This includes subjects as emulation and simulation. In addition, Schmidt is convinced that it is important to avoid, as much as possible, interfaces along the logistics value chain. Customers also expect scalable solutions as well as maximum availability and the highest possible reliability of their systems. This requires reliable and robust technology as well as 24/7 customer support.
For maximum productivity
"At this regard, we have put together a team of specialists who have extensive experience with tasks related to internal transport and material handling", explained Schmidt. The team acts largely independently within the group.
"Especially during the concept and offer phase." The team takes over all detailed process and data analysis as well as material flow simulations. It is not unusual that additional engineering and development tasks are added for special solutions and the manufacture of prototypes.
Safe integration of third party solutions
Efficient project management ensures that upstream and downstream process steps can be safely integrated, also in case of highly complex tasks or intralogistics systems – sometimes with a significant proportion of components from third party suppliers.
In addition, there is the integration of superordinated IT solutions provided by the customer such as production control systems or ERP systems. The team takes over all tasks, from classical integration to the handling of turnkey projects.
"Already during the first year we were able to successfully conclude high-profile projects with market leaders from the health industry, the paper industry, the building services engineering and the metal industry", Schmidt summarised.
