Customer requirements

    • Containers of different sizes and weights must be stored
    • First In First Out (FIFO) Principle must be adhered to
    • All parts should be clearly arranged and flexible for assembly
    • In the level, the storage of multiple stacked trays is necessary

The BITO Solution

    • BITO Carton Live with Widespan Framework

    » BITO builds the BITO Carton Live Storage Solution for the automotive supplier

    • Brake Roller

    » The individual lanes for storing heavy containers are equipped with brake rollers. These Brake rollers allow for a safe and smooth speed of descent toward the flowshelf front.

    • BITO Small Parts Shelving

    » As support for single parts

Storage facility features

    • The automotive supplier stores all small parts in the BITOBOXEN KLT in the through-flow racks
    • The levels of the flow racks for light containers are set at a high inclination. This improves the running characteristics of the containers.
    • Components of a mounting unit are stored on one level. So that heavy containers can be stored on the same level as light containers, the ‘heavy’ item lanes are equipped with brake rollers - so nothing can fall down

Customer benefits

    • The shelving solution enables high availability of the assembly parts on one level
    • A good use of space at every level is possible through the use of stackable trays
    • The system offers a high degree of flexibility in order to be able to provide all required assembly parts clearly

Das sagt unser Kunde

Schwere Ladungsträger müssen wir bei diesem Gefälle abbremsen – mit den Bremsrollen ist das jetzt aber kein Problem mehr.
