Vanderlande’s QUICKSTORE HDS system will provide 226,800 container slots and can be extended easily at any time by adding more aisles.
In total, 86,000 different items can be stored in the system and prepared for regular or express delivery. The system will combine the previously separate picking and packing functions. Vanderlande also installed its high-performance sorter (POSISORTER), to move items to and from the shuttle aisles.
The main objective of the system is to ensure that there are always enough item containers at each of the 14 workstations, for Bosch’s operators to carry out seamless order preparation. Great care was also taken to design the workstations as ergonomically as possible.
Operators are constantly supplied with delivery boxes. Via on-screen instructions, the system informs the operator which items from the supplied containers are to be moved into the order box.
The WMS controls the order in which the boxes should be taken out and directs the correct sequencing for the subsequent steps. This guarantees that heavy items, such as brake discs are removed first and placed at the bottom of the box.
