Manual order picking and conveyor technology

Delivery period: July 2020

The Schnellecke Group is an internationally operating family business that offers a wide range of logistics services. One focus is on value-added logistics for the automotive industry. The company employs over 20,000 people at 73 locations in 13 countries and covers the essential parts of the supply chain of its customers all over the world with its three divisions Logistics, Transportation and Production. Our customer, Schnellecke Logistics Verpackung GmbH in Duisburg, is particularly involved in packaging logistics, for which our conveyor system is used.



The challenge

Delivery of an individual conveyor system for picking pallets in cardboard boxes. The new roller conveyor system is to be replaced during operation.

The existing conveyor technology had already reached its maximum service life after five years of operation due to the high level of use. This presented the perfect opportunity to optimize processes and improve ergonomics! In addition, the new conveyor lines were to be designed to be significantly more robust and require less maintenance so that order picking would run smoothly even in long-term operation.

Assembly proved to be a particular challenge, as this had to be carried out during ongoing operations with as little disruption to work processes as possible. The aim was to take only one section out of operation at a time for the conversion, which required a great deal of care and precision in the planning, organization and execution of the installation.

The solution

An almost completely non-driven conveyor line with trolleys and lifting units.

The basic concept has remained more or less the same, but safety has been significantly improved, for example with automatic stops, more robust guides and rams. The ergonomics have also been improved with clever details, including the addition of an auxiliary slope. Smaller details to protect the lever mechanism complete the picture. Today, low rolling resistance and smooth-running ball rollers facilitate the handling of the sometimes heavy cardboard boxes.

The customer benefit

The individually planned order picking lines are an ideal replacement for the old system. The conveyor line was installed and put into operation without any major disruption to day-to-day operations. Thanks to the high level of quality, a significantly longer service life can be expected, which also reduces maintenance costs and increases throughput! The most important advantages for our customer at a glance:

  • Good price/performance ratio thanks to manual conveyor technology
  • Increased ergonomics and occupational safety with little effort
  • High operational reliability thanks to clever mechanical safety solutions
  • Low maintenance requirements thanks to a robust design
  • Durability thanks to high-quality components
