PHOENIX CONTACT increases logistics capacities
PHOENIX CONTACT GmbH & Co. KG, a global market leader for components, systems, and solutions in electrical connection technology, electronic interfacing, and industrial automation, will expand its logistics center in Blomberg. In the course of this expansion process, the automatic tote warehouse will be expanded by five aisles corresponding to 42,000 additional storage locations. The erection of five additional picking workstations with pick-pack-functionality, as well as a new state-of-the-art carton packaging line, will complement the extension of the logistics center.
WITRON has developed an automated Pallet Consolidation Buffer (PCB) including a corresponding tote palletizing system that is used for customer orders that will be supplied in an order tote rather than a dispatch carton. Picked totes will be buffered in the PCB, stacked onto a Euro pallet based on the customer order, and transported to the dispatch area depending on the tour.
The delivery and performance scope also includes an upgrade of the warehouse management software to the latest version of the WITRON IT technology. In the future, the WMS will control the functionalities of the packaging line as well as those of the palletizing system.
PHOENIX CONTACT has been working successfully with WITRON’s OPS (Order Picking System) logistics module since 2001. PHOENIX CONTACT supplies all of their customers throughout the world from the distribution center in Blomberg.
