Modernisation: Optimising Existing Warehouses and Plants

Flexible Responses to Suit Different Life Cycles

Even a warehouse system can become out of date. Or changing boundary conditions could make it necessary to modify or optimise a warehouse or add new functions. And the individual components of a warehouse system have different “lifetime expectancies”. Whereas the mechanical components might remain in use for 20 years or more, the efficiency of a control system could need upgrading after just 10 years or even earlier. In other words, some components in a warehouse age faster, thus constituting a risk and curbing progress.

DAMBACH has been established in the warehouse systems market for 40 years. The fact that the market is constantly changing and suppliers come and go is therefore irrelevant. Because our efficient modernisation concepts can also optimise installations when their manufacturers have gone out of business or no longer provide support for warehousing technology. This is where DAMBACH can exploit design and production synergies and offer convincing concepts for all modernisation projects.

Modular modernization concepts mean it is possible to respond quickly to increased demands—whether you need subsequent performance upgrades or the replacement of complete units. That means even existing warehouses can benefit from the very latest technology and the efficiency and innovation of DAMBACH products.
