BÖLLHOFF: Böllhoff – dynamic order buffer system for flexible processes


The Böllhoff Group, a leading provider of fastening elements headquartered in Bielefeld, Germany, offers their customers first-class service. To be able to optimally handle the necessary processes, Böllhoff analysed its logistics operations with external consultants and invested in a new automated system. This system was implemented by TGW during live operation - doing open heart surgery so to speak.

Objectives and Requirements:
- Independence of goods-in, picking and goods-out areas
- Fully automated buffer system
- Integration into existing conveyor equipment
- Creation of buffer spaces for small load carriers
- Implementation during live operation

Customer Benefits:
- Increased productivity in all areas of the logistics centre
- Pre-sorted retrieved goods according to different criteria
- Reduced weight load for employees
- Due to the new buffer, an overload is not immediately realised in other areas
- Complete package – as one-stop solution
- Commissioner solution saves energy
