KlingelGermany

Klingel Germany

Founded in 1920 K – Mail Order, better known as Klingel, is one of the largest mail order companies in Germany. There are over 2,500 people working at its headquarters in Pforzheim, where the administration and central warehouse are also located.

Project aim

The aim was the fully automatic handling of returns and fully automatic picking of hanging goods. The shortest possible order throughput time with extremely high picking accuracy were also on the wish list.

Solution

A roll adapter system from Dürkopp Fördertechnik now ensures that everything runs smoothly. Returns arriving from incoming goods are scanned automatically and transported directly to automatic picking buffers without any manual intervention. For order processing preference is given to this stock which is automatically removed and sorted into the required sequence for the order. Due to the great efficiency of the process the system was subsequently expanded to include an area for flat goods in sorter bags. This means that both flat and hanging goods can now be processed and consolidated in a single system.

Project features

Hanging and flat goods handling in a single system

Efficient handling of returns

Fully automatic operation with direct access to every single item

High degree of inventory accuracy

Very short throughput time

Roll adapter

For many years now the roll adapter system has proved its strengths in the transportation and sorting of hanging garments. It is a reliable, efficient and flexible system made possible by a standardised adapter equipped with an RFID transponder. Loaded automatically with a hanger or fixed to a sorter bag, it moves via a rail system to various stations such as automatic storage, labelling stations, sequence sorters and packing stations.

Sorter Pocket

This system is also based on a roll adapter that is equipped with a special goods carrier – the sorter bag. Combined with the roll adapter the system also sorts articles such as shoes, books and foil-covered textiles – in fact anything that will fit into a normal shopping bag. Thanks to this combination it is now possible for the very first time to transport and sort both hanging and flat goods in a single system, a particularly interesting solution for the e-commerce sector.
