KNAPP will present "Low Complexity" at the LogiMAT 2011


With the installation of the world's largest shuttle system at Hermes Fulfilment in Germany, the philosophy of low complexity has become a reality

World's largest OSR Shuttle at Hermes Fulfilment for OTTO Versand

The leading market position in the area of small-parts warehouse is strengthened with the realization of largest OSR Shuttle system worldwide. The customer is Hermes Fulfilment, a member of the Otto Group. With about 176,000 storage locations divided into 30 aisles, the system was put into operation in the existing distribution centre in Haldensleben, Germany. The system is the core piece of the new automatic returns system with a storage capacity of approximately 1 million products. The highly dynamic OSR Shuttle System supplies 30 work stations on two levels, processing up to 15,000 items per hour at peak times.

More and more customers from a large variety of sectors are reaching for the proven shuttle system by KNAPP. The technology can be perfectly adapted to customer requirements and offers the highest warehouse capacity through multiple depth high performance storage systems as well as special system variations for the dispatch area. The high-performance OSR Shuttle also scores in terms of energy efficiency. The energy requirements are less than 10 percent of a standard AS/RS and about one third of the required energy of a carousel system with similar functions.
