w3/max – Material flow for all seasons
You have automatic warehouse equipment that needs to be controlled and connected to your warehouse management system?
In this case, w3/max is the right solution for you: The material flow component of the warehousing suite by w3logistics supports various materials handling equipment. Even the mixed operation of different equipment by diverse suppliers does not pose problems, as convincingly proven by many installations at our customers:
Automatic high bay warehouses
Classical, stacker crane operated high bay warehouses are a standard part of the material flow component of w3/max. This kind of integration was implemented by w3logistics for example at Cosmolux in Luxemburg, at Deutsches Milchkontor in Erfurt and at KHS GmbH in Dortmund.
Especially in the cold store industry automatic movable racks belong to the standard equipment. No problem for w3/max of course: Proven for years at Coldstore Hamm.
w3/max can also control shuttle warehouses of various manufacturers (compact high-bay warehouses, which operate on the goods-to-man principle), thus isolated solutions can be avoided and these systems get fully integrated into your WMS software. This has been successfully implemented for example at KHS Corpoplast in Hamburg.
The materials handling equipment simulator of w3/max offers the possibility to test all functions of the material flow system and to train users before taking a system into operations, so that the commissioning can be well prepared and will be hassle-free.
In live operations, the warehouse equipment can be supervised by the visualization module, which is available as optional component of the w3/max warehousing suite.
