BÖCKELT TOWER® Heavy duty rack
Dynamic material flow.
The load carriers are placed into and removed from storage with the help of standard forklifts or fully automatic DTS systems.
the system allows for dynamic / chaotic warehousing.
The individual storage solution for all industries.
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 STURDY AND FLEXIBLE RACK SYSTEM.
The rack is composed of an exceptionally sturdy, modular steel construction that is planned to fit the individual requirements of each use case and can be expanded by additional towers at any time. The hard-wearing zinc plating guarantees a long lifetime. The room heights available on site are utilised with the greatest possible efficiency to maximise storage capacity. The grid spacing of the support brackets is planned to best match the application at hand and can be altered to adapt to different work areas or departments. The system offers succinct advantages over cantilever arm racks, long-span shelving systems and pallet racks
The mounting plate on the rear of the support brackets keeps goods from being inadvertently pushed through to the back while also serving as an impact-proof mount for attaching the innovative, yet non-sensitive electronic components.
The modular components are used to form individual towers, double towers or entire rack lines — depending on the needs of the specific project. Networking merges all individual systems into one intelligent heavy duty rack.
The rack system is complemented by a load carrier that allows for flexible use, is made of steel or plastic depending on the requirements, and is available in a variety of sizes that offer different load-bearing capacities.
Uniquely labelled and equipped with RFID transponders, each load carrier can be identified automatically in any storage towers.
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.
CONTROL OF INTERNAL LOGISTICS PROCESSES.
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.
CONTROL OF IN-HOUSE LOGISTICS PROCESSES.
Controlling the in-house flow of material, the storage management system provides for continuous tracking of the products. All positions / locations of a company that are relevant to its in-house logistics are defined within the system. Such positions and locations can be visualised in a clearly arranged manner and may include any types of machinery and assembly location, shipping, etc. When material is requested, e.g. for the purposes of a production order, the employee uses the storage management software with multiple user support and looks for the required material by entering or scanning an item number or by applying general filter functions. These search results are displayed with all current storage locations and quantities. The user can then mark the required load carrier with an LED positioned at the rack as well as with a blinking frequency that is assigned to its position / location.
If not responsible for the in-house transport of the requested material, the employee can create an in-house logistics order and assign it, for example, to a forklift operator. This order can also include an assigned priority or time by which the item is required at the workstation.
The forklift operator/s will receive all of their logistics orders, e.g. at their stack terminal, and process them one at a time by priority.
Any removal of a load carrier from the rack will be detected immediately by RFID technology, resulting in the automatic removal of the logistics from the list. Also, the cassette will be logged automatically for the target location (the location where the original request was made).
Removed items are then logged out at that location before the cassette is returned to any storage location. This return process can also be triggered by means of an intralogistics order before it is carried out by a forklift operator.
