BÖCKELT TOWER® Heavy duty rack

Dynamic material flow in an intelligent heavy duty rack

This flexible storage system is made up of modular towers paired with matching load carriers that are used for storage and for the in-house flow of material.

The load carriers are placed into and removed from storage with the help of standard forklifts or fully automatic DTS systems. 

Equipped with an intelligent sensor system and storage management software, the system allows for dynamic / chaotic warehousing.

The load carrier can be inserted into any available storage location regardless of the position at which it was stored before. It is possible to network any number of towers and incorporate them into the storage management system even if they are operated in different work areas or across various buildings.

The optimised material flow / intralogistics combined with the reduction in processing times makes it possible to boost productivity dramatically, ensuring that the system will pay for itself in an exceptionally short time!

  • This system is set apart from a pallet rack, cantilever arm rack system or long-span shelving system by its substantially greater capacity, which is made possible by a loading height hat provides for flexible use
  • Direct access to all stored goods
  • Control of in-house logistics processes, material flow & intralogistics
  • Faster processing times and increased productivity
  • Continuous material tracking with RFID technology solves complex tasks involving the tracking of products / batches
  • Management and overview of all stock levels and positions in real time using a storage management software with multi-user support
  • Function for creating inventories
  • Flexible interfaces with a variety of ERP systems and databases
  • Extra fast retrieval from inventory for an optimised material flow thanks to Pick by Light
  • Dynamic materials management instead of fixed storage locations
  • Support for multiple simultaneous access
  • Sturdy and long-lasting design
  • Electronics installed in an impact-proof enclosure
  • Increased on-the-job safety thanks to standardised load carriers and integrated push-through guards
  • Compact load carriers for safe transport and narrow routes
  • Effortless expansion or conversion thanks to modular design

The sturdy and flexible rack system

Intelligent storage management software optimises the flow of material

Offering multiple user support, the storage management system is used across the entire facility and - if necessary - across all company locations. Flexible interfaces make it possible to exchange relevant data with ERP systems and databases.

The storage management software is used to allocate the load, which may be composed of any number of different items, to the load carrier. It also records the actual loading height in order to define the height requirements within the storage system.

Better yet, the software also comes with such useful features as master article record, minimum stock level as well as search and filtering tools. Finally, the software provides a history of materials for all items, which records all materials that have been added and removed and thereby supports first-in, first-out processes. The inventories can be supplemented with additional pieces of useful information.

The tracking of products and batches is a cinch with the storage management system. Export functions supporting all standard file formats serve as helpful tools, e.g. during stock-taking.

All existing storage towers are displayed in a clearly arranged manner in the storage management software and can also be clustered in groups for individual departments, buildings or company locations. The storage management software communicates with the control systems of the rack systems as well as with their integrated RFID readers and displays. As soon as being inserted into a storage tower at any position, the load carrier is identified automatically and all items allocated to it will be posted automatically for this storage location. The system automatically reserves the space actually required for the load carriers including its load.

Another option is to have the software suggest storage locations for a load carrier that match its current loading height.

Thanks to automatic RFID detection, an actual change of position for a load carrier does not require any reposting in the software, nearly eliminating completely the risk of erroneous entries.

Gaps, e.g. brought about by removals, can be closed by repositioning load carriers, creating additional storage space for other items that can be used in a flexible manner. The result is significantly improved utilisation of the available height in comparison to conventional heavy duty racks that operate with fixed storage levels.

These processes are bolstered by a variety of functions that are designed to optimise warehousing.
