SSI Schäfer is one of the world's leading provider of modular warehousing and logistics solutions. Spread across every continent, the SSI Schäfer Group develops innovative concepts and solutions within various industries, thus shaping the future of intralogistics. The company designs, develops and manufactures systems for warehouses, industrial plants, workshops and offices. Its portfolio includes manual and automated solutions for warehousing, conveying, picking and sorting, plus technologies for waste management and recycling. In addition, SSI Schäfer has now become one of the biggest providers of regularly updated software for in-house material flows. As a globally operating general contractor, SSI Schäfer implements complex logistics systems, taking projects from system planning and consulting right through to turnkey systems and customized service and maintenance packages.
At HANNOVER MESSE 2019, SSI Schäfer is once again exhibiting its comprehensive range of manual, semi- and fully automated solutions for production logistics to a wide international audience. A showcase at the SSI Schäfer stand offers a live demonstration of how manual warehouse components can be combined with automated guided vehicles (AGVs) to create semi-automated storage solutions. Take, for example, the "WEASEL" - this solution takes EF and MF containers from live-storage shelving and transports them via an optical path to a designated transfer point - all without the need for complex sensors. What's more, SSI Schäfer has also recently expanded its AGV range through a collaboration with Austrian AGV specialist DS AUTOMOTION. The compact "Sally" AGV from DS AUTOMOTION is designed for loads up to around 100 kg and is also being demonstrated live on a special area. "Sally" completes a range of transport tasks with great flexibility and navigates autonomously using simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) technology.
