Nedre Vats, Norway, October 10, 2013, Hatteland Computer
Offenau, Germany, AM-Automation GmbH
Hatteland Computer and AM-Automation announced today a deal for an AutoStore automated warehouse system with the German EHEIM GmbH. EHEIM is the leading European brand for aquatics accessories with sales in more than 60 countries. This new storage system is EHEIM’s first AutoStore system and will provide the basis for future direct sales.
Former ventures with automated warehousing have been done with classic mini-load systems with stacker-cranes. But these systems could not fulfill the needs depending on the existing sizes and inside the existing buildings.
The deal includes an AutoStore system consisting of a storage Grid for 7,100 Bins, 10 Robots, as well as 4 Conveyor Ports. Once the system is fully operational it will be able to handle 300 Bins per hour. As is standard for all AutoStore systems, more robots can be brought on the grid and even more bins per hour can be handled in the future. This gives EHEIM the security that the warehouse system will keep pace with future sales.
