Egemin Automation recently commissioned a new automatic warehouse to Rossmann, a leading-edge German health and beauty retail chain. The installation is integrated in Rossmann’s distribution center in Lödz (Poland) handling all kinds of chemist’s products on pallets. The hand-over occurred well in time, two weeks before the scheduled commissioning date.

High-bay warehouse and lift installation

The project comprises two main parts, a high-bay pallet warehouse reaching an impressive 34 meters and a lift installation for the transport of empty and full roll containers in between the ground floor and three higher levels.

Pallet Warehouse. The pallet warehouse functions as a buffer warehouse for incoming goods inside the DC. It comprises the following equipment:
  • Input/output conveyors at goods intake including profile, pallet and weight control

  • Conveyor system for automatic transfer of pallets between Egemin conveyor system and existing conveyor system
