LogiMAT 2018

True to the motto "TIME TO CHANGE", the LogiMAT 2018 exceeded all our expectations.

Well equipped for the future: The new PW 800 with inline option

The engineers of Baust material flow systems responded to the wishes of their customers and improved the proven pallet changer PW 800 even more.

Praise from our customer

Music to our ears – our customer Stabilus made an extremely positive mention of us in its employee newspaper. It goes without saying that we are always pleased to hear that our customers are satisfied with our products! That’s the motivation for us to give our best.
 

“As we all know, the devil is in the detail. For quality assurance and industrial hygiene reasons only plastic pallets can be used in pneumatic spring assembly areas. Obviously, splinters in production machinery or operators’ skin are not something you want. The catch? The small load carriers (SLC) with components which are required for production must be transferred from wooden euro pallets onto plastic pallets. By hand. And this applies to 640 of the approximately 2000 SLC’s which are in use each day. A significant physical burden for the employees concerned.

This was not a satisfactory solution from either a logistics or an ergonomics point of view. Thanks to extensive project work it is, however, now a thing of the past. Experienced logistics specialist Martina Baumann and her team discovered a solution offered by a well-known provider of materials handling systems which they then investigated in more detail. SLC’s are now transferred from wooden to plastic pallets without any physical effort being required. The new solution involves a loaded wooden pallet and then an empty plastic one being inserted into the system, which pushes the load from the first onto the second pallet, thus completing the transfer. No-one has to bend down and move the containers, which can weigh up to 15 kg, by hand anymore.

A number of test runs had to be carried out on the premises of the supplier, Baust & Co., in the Rhineland region before the solution could be implemented. Winfried Roth reports that they all went smoothly, even those which were carried out under difficult conditions such as varying types of SLC and weights or with a second material number. The warehousing specialist was highly impressed by the supplier’s professional attitude and cooperation, as was project manager Martina Baumann. They were both assisted by Jennifer Gödtel-Dragon from Procurement.”

 

Fully-automatic 1000 square metre system

The new customer was sceptical: Won’t our pallet changers squeeze their sensitive products too much? Is it also possible to change pallets with high stacks without any problems? The customer tested our pallet changer extensively with various products. We were able to completely convince the customer ;-) Ultimately, the supplier for car manufacturers immediately ordered two PW 6000 pallet changers with the pushing method.

Our challenge in this was that 120 pallets were to be changed per hour in an extensive material flow system. Now, all products are identified automatically based on their labels and sent in the right direction. Pallet magazines are also part of the large, approximate 1000 square metre, fully-automatic system as well as labellers and strapping machines. 100 conveyors ensure that everything runs smoothly.

Our engineers had to plan every detail of this large system exactly, so that the different components communicate with each other perfectly and work according to the exact procedure. Thank you for your tremendous commitment! The new pallet changer system now easily changes 120 times per hour from  high-quality in-house pallets to lower-cost shipping pallets. The customer is delighted to get all the services from a single source and be able to discuss all the details with a fixed contact person. The factory acceptance has already taken place on our premises. Now, our technicians and engineers are assembling the system at the customer’s site and connecting it to its warehouse system.

 

Our new representation in France

The Baust pallet changers fulfil many special requirements and requests. Each of our products has its strengths and fields of application for which it is particularly well suited. Therefore, our representative must know all our models well. That is the only way they can offer customers the best-suited pallet changer in each case. We often travel ourselves to the various countries, Europe, the Americas and Asia, to explain our products.

We now have our own representative in France with technical experts, who also speak German and English in addition to their mother tongue, French. Our partner Serpac contributes a great deal of experience with logistics and packaging. We showed our different pallet changers to our French colleagues at the Baust Materialflusssysteme company headquarters, and explained to them how they can be integrated in logistics systems.

We are delighted to have found a competent partner with Serpac. Have fun with the high-quality Baust products and good business in France.

 

Clean solution with the slip sheet holder

Many Euro pallets have already clocked many years of service. They have travelled all through Europe and have transported a great variety of goods. And, they look like it too. Therefore, anyone sending high-quality or sensitive goods protects them with a paper layer. The danger with conventional pallet changers is that the paper will slip during the pallet change and cause a paper jam in the system.

In contrast, our slip sheet holder uses suction to hold the paper firmly during the pallet change. Hence, it remains reliably where it is, while the goods are being packed on a new pallet. That way, even the corners and edges lie securely on the protective paper. In addition, if the goods are to be protected by a coversheet, then our integrated coversheet applicator places it on the goods or alternatively pallet. Hence, the pallet change is carried out without problems even with sensitive goods.

One of our Norwegian customers recognised these benefits: The pharmaceutical firm ordered multiple pallet changers with slip sheet holders. That is because clean transport plays an important role for medication.

 

Gentle, but fast and reliable

On the one hand, the side walls have to be gripped firmly so that the flexible tower doesn’t topple during the change; on the other hand, the highly stacked rolls should naturally not be crushed.

We were quickly able to convince a French customer with our PW 500-Inline pallet changer. It exchanges the pallets containing kitchen rolls 40 to 60 times per hour for any other type of pallet. The product is optionally changed from Euro pallets to plastic pallets for the hygiene sector, or smaller Düsseldorf pallets for supermarkets, or disposable pallets for transport outside Europe. It simplifies the logistics enormously. And the users are thrilled by our robust and easy-to-operate PW 500-Inline, the automated pallet changer with a clamping process. 

 

AIDAnova – Changing pallets at sea

The team at Baust supplied a special system for the cruise liner.

Good logistics are crucial to the smooth running of cruise liners. To ensure that the needs of up to 6 600 passengers can be met without any difficulties, pallets stacked high with supplies must be stored optimally in a very confined space. In response to this, the engineers at Baust created a customized system for the AIDAnova which allows efficient changing of pallets while at sea.

As is always the case for production areas in food and pharmaceuticals applications, the goods on board the ship must be stored on clean plastic pallets. The Baust pallet changer plays a key role in this. Its installation on board was a particular challenge, as was the low ceiling height of the storage area. Thanks to the pallet changer, which is now in its second year of operation, the crew of the AIDAnova have a much easier job looking after their guests’ needs.

60 years of Baust – Anniversary trip

The Baust group of companies has been your partner for demanding material flow systems and complex material handling since 1958. A fact worthy of a big celebration.

The difficult post-war years had just ended when Franz Josef and Tillmann Baust went set up their own company. It quickly developed from a specialist manufacturer of rollers and cylinders to a provider of integrated materials handling systems and has continued to grow and further specialize ever since. In 2002 the company was restructured to create a group of four independent companies. Today Baust, a family-owned group, is managed by Franz Baust, a member of the second generation.

To mark Baust’s 60th anniversary the company’s management invited all the employees to join them on a trip to Cologne. The journey there, by ship from Monheim, was already the first highlight of the day and was followed by others, such as a variety show performance and a lavish meal above the rooftops of Cologne. Baust’s employees will remember this day for a long time – and the good working atmosphere is a guarantee that we will always be able to find the right solution for every customer wish.

LogiMAT 2018

True to the motto "TIME TO CHANGE", the LogiMAT 2018 exceeded all our expectations.

The Baust exhibition highlights for you at a glance:

  • Innovative design: the pallet changer PW 800 E live
  • Complete pallet changer consulting & know-how: clamping, inverting, tilting or pushing
  • New options: slip-sheet handling, product centering and even more performance
     

We would be pleased to help you finding the best pallet changing solution.

 

Well equipped for the future: The new PW 800 with inline option

The engineers of Baust material flow systems responded to the wishes of their customers and improved the proven pallet changer PW 800 even more.

The pallet changer now has a tilting angle that can be set to any tilting angle up to 135° thereby also enabling reliable re-palletising of big bags and bagged goods. 

Other requirements were a purely electric main drive, precise centring in all directions and at best the possibility for integration in a conveyor line at a later stage with little effort.

The result exceeded all expectations

Design manager Sven Lorry is satisfied with the results achieved for the new PW 800: “Thanks to the electric drive and installed pneumatics, we are able to reduce the noise emissions to a minimum, and at the same time we avoid having critical service fluids in the system such as hydraulic oil. In addition, all movements can be executed quickly and carefully at the same time through frequency control.”

Baust is expanding its product portfolio of pallet changers without hydraulic drives even further with the PW 800. The response by Baust customers to this development is positive across the board. Customers appreciate the advantages of the electronic drive in practice. 

Tilting up with air: Use in practice

Last year, not one but two Baust customers decided to take the option for the subsequent inline design. That way, the automated stand-alone machine can become a fully automated pallet changer system with conveyor technology in the near future with just a few changes. The feeding height is then at the future conveying level and allows loading and unloading with a forklift or electrical pallet truck.
