System solutions as an integrated approach to automation
By “system solution” H+H means an integrated automation approach for material transport in an entire operational area, and indeed an approach that covers all the necessary process sequences including communication with the customer’s ERP system. This consists of tailor-made, problem-orientated internal logistical systems agreed in advance with the customer, with tried and tested conveyor and handling equipment (components) and the combination of specially designed and existing production equipment.
The way toward a system solution
The starting point is always a detailed and forward-looking material flow analysis prepared by H+H. On the basis of that analysis H+H develops and supplies the appropriate transport systems, having regard to all the boundary conditions (product properties, local conditions, the customer’s wishes, etc.). After the system has been commissioned, the customer has access to all the services on offer.
To the customer’s benefit
The customer benefits in many ways from the complete automation of material transport: lower personnel costs, no damage during transport, increased flexibility during periods of fluctuating workload, operation in restricted space, and often much more. Experience shows that the ROI (Return of Investment) ranges between 3 and 5 years. On the basis of decades of experience H+H can guarantee availability levels of 98 percent.
Numerous work sectors
In the load range up to 30 tonnes H+H has supplied conveyor systems for tasks of the most varied types (among others, in the normal, high and low temperature ranges, in corrosive environments):
