Short-Term Buffer Storage & Transfer Production Lines
Automated production flow line modules provide a highly efficient short-term buffer storage and transfer for lightweight, small-volume items. With up too 500 order lines per picking station per hour, the flow line modules allow higher performance, increased accuracy, energy savings, and improved productivity in a compact footprint.

Automated Production Flow for Short-Term Buffer Storage
The short-term buffer storage modules are a modular and scalable solution for small and large applications alike. Energy efficient, fast, and high density storage and retrieval modules use the goods-to-person principle to deliver requested items directly to the operator, eliminating walk and search time. The modules are great for kit assembly, supplying assembly areas, slow-mover management, and more.
The vertical automated production flow lines provide highly efficient buffer storage and transfer. Its highly intelligent design and integrated software is ideal for assembling components for pre-picked assembly sets. Smart automation ensures continuous flow lines in assembly areas with just-in-time retrieval or conveyed directly to assembly workstations. With goods-to-person delivery, the modules can increase throughput by up to 200%. The units are especially suited for slow-moving goods and picking of items in small quantities. Its high density vertical design also provides more storage capacity for a large number of items in a space-saving footprint.
Additional advantages of the automated production flow lines for short-term buffer storage and transfer include:
- Faster & more efficient order picking
- Energy efficient design
- Ergonomic picking stations
- Flexible tray arrangement
- Fast access with shorter travel times
