Ketten Gép, a dealer in the earth-moving and construction machine industry, head-quartered in Nagytarcsa near Budapest, Hungary, has modernised its spare parts warehouse with a warehouse solution from OHRA: By replacing the existing pallet warehouse with a mobile racking system, the storage capacity in the existing warehouse could be increased by 60 percent. To do so, the existing pallet racks were reused and OHRA pallet racking added and assembled on to three mobile trollies. Each of these mobile trollies carries up to 108 tons.
Ketten Gép not only trades with earth-moving equipment and construction machines, but also repairs these and offers relevant spare parts. The quick resolution of customer problems is the company's top priority – construction machines that are not being operated, do not earn money. For this reason, the company always has a large range of spare parts in stock, such as for example, rubber and steel chains for excavators, chain sprockets and even motor parts and axles. In addition, Ketten Gép also offers hydraulic auxiliary tools such as breaker heads or demolition shears for construction machines. Due to the ever-increasing range, the existing warehouse reached its limits, and Ketten Gép needed to find a solution that would allow them to significantly increase the storage capacity in the existing building.
For this, Ketten Gép integrated OHRA into the planning phase: The specialist for storage technology located in Kerpen near Cologne developed a customised concept for a mobile racking system.
The old, pallet racks, which had been installed by third party manufacturers, were assembled on to mobile trollies and OHRA pallet racks were added. At Ketten Gép, the 8.6 metre long mobile trollies run on four tracks. When accessing a storage compartment, only the aisle required is opened – with a width of 3.5 metres the side loader used by Ketten Gép can easily load or unload the goods. This results in a high level of use of space which is a great plus for the available storage capacity.
With a compartment load of 3 tons across five storage levels, the 5.5 metre high racks move at a speed of up to 4.8 metres per minute – an impressive sight, which customers love to watch, says Ketten Gép.
Ketten Gép also found the speed with which the new warehouse was completed impressive: It took OHRA less than one month to dismantle the old racks, lay the tracks and assemble the mobile racks, including the control. According to Ketten Gép, OHRA is a perfect fit for their corporate philosophy: Quality products at affordable prices, speed and efficiency.
The success story of OHRA Regalanlagen GmbH
officially begins in 1979: Ottokar Hölscher founded a company for the production and sale of racking systems. Thanks in particular to the innovative cantilever racks, the German company was able to quickly establish itself on the market: In contrast to the competition, the arms of the cantilever racks are simply clipped into the punched upright profiles - thanks to this patented solution, the cantilever arms can be adjusted at any time without tools. Cantilever arm and pallet racks from OHRA are characterised by their particularly high load-bearing capacity, robustness and durability. The portfolio ranges from simple shelving solutions to complete racking to complex, fully automatic storage and picking systems. With customised logistics solutions, OHRA has established itself in a wide variety of industries and now has its own sales offices in 13 countries. In 2019, the European market leader for cantilever racks celebrated its 40th anniversary.
