New hall – new processes – new software
Stahlwille from Wuppertal-Cronenberg, as one of the leading tool manufacturers worldwide, relocated its logistics to Radevormwald last year. All processes were bundled and modernised in the new logistics centre.
For more than 20 years now, Stahlwille has relied on the competences of the Dortmund software company w3logistics AG. In the past, w3logistics took over the maintenance, care and further development of the existing WMS system and also integrated new solutions such as pick-by-vision technology. So it was no surprise that Stahlwille decided to entrust this task to w3logistics as well when the new location went live and the extensive adaptations to the software that were required as a result. Thus, the opportunity was taken to completely replace the old software with the new w3/max, which is now in use in Radevormwald and meets modern requirements.
At the new location, the tool manufacturer from Cronenberg operates an automated small parts warehouse with twelve picking stations, which was completely integrated into w3/max. Work processes for production and end customer order picking are initiated, scheduled and processed.
Another new addition is the forklift guidance system for the narrow-aisle forklifts needed for order picking, which bring the articles to the workplaces in a route-optimised manner.
In addition to the transfer of the existing process flows into the new software, Stahlwille now also benefits from the modern usability of the latest generation of w3/max. Intuitive operation for the users in the office and for the workers in the logistics centre contributes to the quick familiarisation of the employees with the software.
"Thanks to years of cooperation with the same contact persons, we were able to successfully realise this large-scale project together with w3logistics in a short period of time. With the new software and the new faster process flows, we can further strengthen our position in the market," says logistics manager Andreas Putsch about the cooperation at the new location.
With this project, Stahlwille and w3logistics are committing to continuing the successful cooperation of the past years and are taking the next steps together towards a digitalised future.
