Technology and Innovation
It has now been 60 years since the opening of the first “automated” high bay warehouse (HBW). Since then, thousands of HBWs and other automated warehouses have been built and some of them have been going for decades. After years of operation, though, very few systems still exist in the same format as they were installed. Steel components may be sturdy, but IT and control elements, as well as mechatronics, must be regularly updated. And when product ranges, volumes or customer demands change, modernization and expansion become necessary.
