SSI Schaefer, the UK and world’s leading provider of automated materials handling and integrated storage solutions, will be exhibiting at the MACH 2014 exhibition in Birmingham between 7th and 11th April. It will be the first time that SSI Schaefer has exhibited at a MACH event and its LogiMat storage and order picking system will be the central focus of their stand.
The LogiMat is an efficient, goods-to-man picking, space-saving alternative for storing and order picking a broad range of items in a compact and ergonomic way. It occupies only a small footprint providing 90% storage space saving when compared to conventional static solutions. Its design is similar to an oversized drawer cabinet with two stacks of trays (one in the front and one in the rear) and between those stacks a lift operates which extracts individual trays as required. Visitors will be able to get a close-up view of how the LogiMat operates on the SSI Schaefer stand.
SSI Schaefer’s product offering ranges from a single plastic tote through to high bay warehousing systems and almost everything in between – all manufactured by SSI Schaefer. The company is a solutions provider that offers unrivalled in-house expertise in the design, build, installation and maintenance of major, and often bespoke, production and distribution centre operations across a broad spectrum of commercial and industrial sectors.
Mike Alibone, Business Development & Marketing Manager, commented: "Typical products range from storage and transport containers, with more than 2000 different types of plastic totes, modular shelving, carton live storage and mobile racking, fully automated picking solutions, conveyor and container transport systems and rack-clad automated storage and retrieval systems. Having developed its own warehouse management systems and warehouse control systems, SSI Schaefer is also at the forefront of automation IT provision."
In addition to the LogiMat, examples of related equipment from the Schaefer solutions and product portfolio will be available for inspection, including benches and workshop equipment, shelving, cabinets and plastic containers (totes).
SSI Schaefer has developed a unique partnering approach, through which they work hand in hand with their customers to develop, design and implement the most innovative yet cost effective solution for each project. Through this approach and constant innovation, SSI Schaefer is the global leader for storage and materials handling solutions.
