Sensor technology provider Balluff has expanded its fulfilment offering in Veszprém, Hungary, by merging four warehouses in an effort to establish a more centralised logistics operation.
The company, which provides smart devices for logistics processes, has said its new operation will provide increased capacity.
A major part of the expansion includes a fully-automated small box storage system for parts and semi-finished products, plus a new narrow-aisle storage system for pallets and long goods.
Both systems were designed to enable high conveyor and lifting speeds with optimal space utilisation, with the new 5,000m² site marking ‘a significant milestone for both the company and the logistics area’, according to Balluff.
Currently, Veszprém is Balluff’s second largest development base after its headquarters in Germany.
What’s more, the Balluff site in Veszprém in western Hungary, which is southwest of Budapest, is the company’s largest series production site, along with its two plants in Chengdu, China and Aguascalientes, Mexico.
Balluff will be exhibiting at Stand 726 at Robotics & Automation Exhibition 2024. The latest developments in robotics and automated technologies will be on show at this event, which will be held on 19-20 March 2024 at the NEC Birmingham and co-located with IntraLogisteX, the UK’s biggest warehousing show.
