Load carriers with the i-cing on the cake
Automation, industry 4.0 and robotics are becoming more and more important in times of resource scarcity and a shortage of skilled workers, also in the logistics sector. The traditional company GEBHARDT Logistic Solutions GmbH has been developing and producing load carriers for 190 years and researches intelligent solutions and new business models with partners from science and industry. Especially in the automotive, e-commerce and food & retail sectors, GEBHARDT products have become indispensable. Modular container concepts and multifunctional special load carriers ensure more flexibility in production and cost savings. Thanks to the high-quality materials and special design, the load carriers can be stacked and compacted when empty - ideal for efficient transport and storage, even in high-bay warehouses. As part of the iSLT.NET research project, the project manager will provide information on the topics of container configuration and tracking at the trade fair stand.
GEBHARDT presents two novelties for the food and retail sectors at LogiMAT 2019: The customary roll container has been completely revised and designed to be even more stable. Due to the reduced height of the roller plate, the container has been adapted for use in automatic conveyor systems. For smooth operation on conveyor systems, the slip-on walls can optionally be attached with an additional bracket. With a suitable system pallet made of low-friction and stable hardwood, the roll containers can also be used in fully automated high-bay warehouses. The second product innovation is the configurable Isotec TBX thermal container for temperature-controlled goods. In the future, the load carrier will be profiled with improved corrosion protection, optimised weight and ergonomics. The GEBHARDT Isotec TBX presents itself at the fair with an icing on the cake: The container is networked and reports for example temperature, filling level and much more via a secured cloud to a tablet.
On the second day of the fair, iSLT.NET project manager Martin Graßl and Prof. Dr. Sebastian Meißner from the Technology Center Production and Logistics Systems (TZ PULS) will provide information on "Logistics 4.0 - Tracking for more transparency in the automotive supply chain" at 11.30 a.m. in Forum A, Hall 1.
