Vega in Schiltach is a global manufacturer of sensors for measuring level, limit level or pressure, as well as devices and software for integration into process control systems. The company was founded in 1959 and has more than 1,700 employees worldwide.
Together with Kardex, we installed a 27 meter high TowerMat cassette storage system to store 6,5 meter long pipes. A maximum storage load of 300 tons is generated here on a floor space of only 35m².
A challenge to man and machine. The storage lifts were pre-assembled and installed within 3 weeks. 4 single modules of 15 tons each were lifted individually and precisely into a 30 meter deep shaft by crane. Finally a total of 118 cassettes offers a storage space of 636m² in the system and the system can be processed at 3 workstations on 3 floors.
An exciting project and a great challenge.
