Siemens Mobility AG Opts for Swisslog Storage and Picking solution
Swisslog has won an order to deliver an innovative storage and order picking system for Siemens Mobility AG.
Siemens Mobility, which is active in the areas of rail vehicles and rail automation solutions, will move into its new materials and spare parts warehouse in Wallisellen, Zurich in the coming months.
Dr. Christian Baur, CEO of Swisslog said: "We are incredibly pleased to announce Siemens Mobility AG has entrusted Swisslog to install an innovative AutoStore storage and picking system for small parts.
"With our agile local realization and service teams, we can implement the system for Siemens very quickly and efficiently."
With over 270 AutoStore projects worldwide, Swisslog is the leading provider of this solution. In Switzerland alone, there are over 30 Swisslog installations.
The main components of the automated logistics solution are:
· AutoStore storage system with 10,000 bins and 4 robots. Installed in the basement for optimal space utilization.
· Ergonomic picking stations on the first floor with plenty of daylight for the operators.
· Tote conveyor technology in the basement, first floor and connecting tote lift.
· Swisslog SynQ software, which controls the entire automated solution.
Siemens is relying on Swisslog's proven SynQ standard software for its new warehouse system, which enables rapid project implementation.
This modular, future-oriented warehouse management system (WMS) for optimized warehouse processes allows further automated systems such as conveyor technology or container lifts to be easily integrated.
In addition, the software offers so-called pick-by-light support for item picking. This means that light lasers or dots show colleagues exactly where to pick the items and into which target container to place them.
