For our customer Hauff-Technik, Europe's most important manufacturer of cable, pipe and line bushings, standstill is out of the question. A load train solution consisting of a Jungheinrich EZS 350 lithium-ion tractor together with the IT510 Industry Train load train with three EF2 load carriers ensures maximum productivity and lean processes there.
The challenges at Hauff-Technik consisted in improving the processes in the area of material supply to increase efficiency. Improved plannability in production loading was also a priority. And finally, Hauff-Technik wanted to replace the existing drawbar trucks with the route feeder and thus achieve the best possible cost savings per goods movement.
The best possible solution for the customer was quickly found: The Industry Train IT510 load train with the Jungheinrich EZS 350 lithium-ion tractor. By using the load train, productivity was significantly increased with a halving of throughput times, while at the same time saving 30% in costs. Supply frequency and reliability were also massively increased.
Tobias Mayer, Head of Logistics at Hauff-Technik: "Halved throughput times, a reduction in transport volume of 40% and an enormous increase in supply frequency – that's something to be proud of."
