WEGMANN automotive RELIES ON AUTOMATION FROM JUNGHEINRICH

WEGMANN automotive RELIES ON AUTOMATION FROM JUNGHEINRICH

Jungheinrich is building a new logistics centre for WEGMANN automotive in Veitshöchheim, Lower Franconia. This major project at the company’s headquarters is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2021. WEGMANN automotive is the global market leader for balance weights and battery bushings for automotive production. The company is the exclusive supplier to Formula 1 and supplies all notable automotive manufacturers as well as leading retail organisations.

The new logistics centre at WEGMANN automotive’s headquarters near Würzburg has been designed to utilise automated warehouse systems to increase handling performance through fast access times. Error rates will remain low while the use of space will be maximized. Jungheinrich will supply the company with a comprehensive solution from a single source. This includes everything from the detailed planning of processes in both the new and the existing buildings to the supply of modern technology. The heart of the project is a high-bay warehouse featuring automated pallet conveyor technology. Stacker cranes from Jungheinrich subsidiary MIAS allow for automated storage inclusive of control units and visualisation.

Automated guided vehicles from Jungheinrich will keep material flowing through the logistics centre. Three-phase AC technology enables long deployment times. The automated guided vehicles are navigated by laser technology which is connected to reflectors along the warehouse aisles. The AGVs receive all information via the Jungheinrich Logistics Interface. This interface connects Jungheinrich’s trucks directly with WEGMANN automotive’s SAP EWM system.

The new automation solution also includes lift racks that provide optimal utilisation of space. To make small parts picking effective, the lift racks and trays are directly connected to the customer’s SAP EWM system through Jungheinrich’s logistics interface. This ensures optimum process transparency.

Following completion, WEGMANN automotive’s new logistics centre will process internal and external incoming goods, storage, order picking and shipping at the most advanced level. The scope of supply includes a Jungheinrich service and maintenance package and original replacement parts for all equipment.
