NEX Logistics Europe will install a new AS/RS for boxes


NEX Logistics Europe knows that automation of its handling processes has a direct effect on its distribution centers. For this very reason, a few months from now its logistics installations in Bedburg (Germany) will be equipped with a new automated miniload system by Mecalux with a 4,104-box storage capacity.

The NEX Logistics Europe AS/RS for boxes

The warehouse will feature a single aisle with two double-depth racks on both sides that measure 29' high, all divided into 19 levels. Here, they will host a plethora of SKUs from a printer maker (mainly printer parts and toners).

A two-level conveyor circuit will be installed on one end of the racks: the upper one will provide empty boxes flowing from the consolidation area to operators for picking orders; the lower one will transport the goods to twin picking stations and take finished orders up to the consolidation and shipping zone.

In the supplied solution, Easy WMS of Interlake Mecalux will serve as an interface between the control system and the WMS of NEX Logistics Europe. Easy WMS will communicate —via a database— with the transportation control system to send movement orders to the electromechanical devices of the installation (a stacker crane and conveyors).

“We have enjoyed a smooth working relationship with Mecalux for years. To get this project rolling, we analyzed what the market had to offer and decided Mecalux’s quality customer service is years ahead of the rest.”
