Smart, Connected Material Flow: LFS As Used By Seeberger
In Seeberger GmbH’s new automated warehouse, LFS manages and controls the entire flow of materials. Headquartered in Ulm, Germany, the family-owned business produces several thousand tons of trail mix, dried fruit, and coffee every year. To ensure a targeted flow of materials, the company also employs four automated guided vehicles (AGVs) in addition to their warehouse management system. These AGVs form the connection between the high-bay warehouse and the production area. When a production order is received, LFS starts by issuing a command to the automated storage and retrieval systems in the automated warehouse. These systems then select the requested goods and carry them to one of the retrieval lines, where an AGV picks up the pallet and transports it to one of the production machines by way of a bridge.
