    BITO Innovation helps Siemens achieve their goals


Our customer

Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery develops, manufactures and services small industrial gas turbines with an installed fleet of more than 3,500 units in 90 countries. 1,500 turbines are in operation at major customers in the oil and gas industry, in hospitals and paper mills as well as in other industries.


Customer requirements

    • Promote health and safety
    • Enable growth
    • Increase cycle speed
    • Expand service capacities
    • Reduce costs to secure long-term operational efficiency

The BITO Solution

    • Customised motorised storage modules
    • Six LEO Locative AGVs
    • Buffer zones with carton live storage units and LEO transfer stations
    • EQ Folding boxes
    • XL containers with insertable bins
    • Very narrow aisle pallet racking for storing standard-size pallets
    • Workbenches and lockers

Special features of the storage solution

    • Motorised storage modules provide sufficient storage positions on 3 levels.
    • LEO AGVs ensure fast and safe transfer of items between the goods-in area, the Kardex shuttles and the packing stations.
    • EQ folding bins are used for order picking. They can be folded when empty and stored away in a buffer zone next to the LEO transfer stations.
    • The Kardex vertical lift modules are equipped with XL containers with insert bins to provide different size storage positions.

Customer benefits

    • Motorised storage modules improve space utilisation and inventory management.
    • Using LEO vehicles for in-house transport increases safety at work since staff is kept out of areas with busy forklift traffic. Moreover, the AGVs minimise manual handling, achieve an ROI within a year, increase staff productivity and reduce travel times by 30%.
    • The buffer zones with carton live storage racks and EQ folding bins make sure there is always a bin available when components are needed for outbound logistics. This prevents delays.
    • The XL containers and Kardex modules speed up picking cycles. Picking is even twice as fast as with the previous system and there is more flexibility for storing parts of different sizes.

What our customers say

“During the entire installation period, the BITO team on site were very efficient and were praised by the main construction team for their work ethic and cleanliness. We are also very happy with the BITO product quality. The company is very responsive, helpful and worked closely with us to provide the service we needed throughout the complex project.”
