Maintenance-free intralogistics solutions

Why is intralogistics important for warehousing?

Storage without interruption of logistics is essential for fast supply chains. Customers do not want to wait unnecessarily for their goods, and for manufacturers, on-time delivery is a decisive competitive advantage. The processes run largely automatically, especially in larger-scale material handling. In addition to industrial vehicles, lifting tables and palletisers, automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and storage and retrieval units (SRUs) autonomously move unit loads and packages. Our products support 24/7 operation because they work without lubrication and are therefore maintenance-free. In addition, our energy chains, cables, plain and linear bearings save weight and installation space, an important aspect especially in high-bay warehouses.

White paper: Safe energy transmission in material handling

How can machine parts work dynamically over long distances and still be reliably supplied with electricity?

This white paper deals with e-chains and busbar systems for cable guidance in indoor and outdoor cranes, electric overhead railway tracks, electric trains, storage and retrieval units (SRUs), and cross transfer carriages (CTCs).

Avoid bearing failure with smart plastics

smart plastics enhance reliability in logistics. Their intelligent sensor technology reports the condition and recommended maintenance dates of products such as energy chains and cables.

Your benefits
  • Reduce maintenance costs and eliminate unplanned downtime
  • Extended service life and increased plant efficiency
  • Save time – faster detection of the reason for anomalies
