What problem does the product solve?

The LOGIMAT® Vertical Lift Module is a small parts storage and picking solution in one system: it is a space-saving alternative in which ergonomics, safety, and cost-effectiveness are the focus. The lift module can be used in any industry and provides targeted, efficient support for your internal processes.

What’s new/innovative about it?

Lift modules are the ideal solution wherever optimum utilization of the available storage height is a priority. Thanks to its compact design, the LOGIMAT® Vertical Lift Module fits into almost any space and works according to the convenient goods-to-person principle. Compared to conventional static storage systems, the LOGIMAT® only requires one tenth of the storage space.

Does the product have a USP? If yes, what is it?

o LOGITILT – For Ergonomic Retrieval of Stored Goods

LOGITILT is a tray tilting mechanism for ergonomic operation.

How does the LOGITILT option work?

With LOGITILT, the tilt angle can be individually adjusted from 0° to 30° for each tray. You benefit from a reduction in retrieval depth and ergonomic retrieval of the stored goods from the tray.

Your benefits:

The LOGITILT option from SSI SCHAEFER improves the visibility and accessibility of the rear tray compartments. Thanks to the ergonomic operation of the machine, operators do not have to perform physically demanding work, which increases their motivation, wellbeing, and efficiency.

o The LOGIMAT® Vertical Lift Module is equipped with a programmable logic controller (PLC) as standard, which represents the first step in IT-supported warehouse management. Basic functions, such as requesting and returning trays, a fixed storage strategy, intelligent height measurement (IHO) with automatic consolidation function, logging, and user management, are also available as standard.

o User-Friendly System Thanks to Self-Explanatory Interface and extra-large touchscreens with 12’’ or 17’’ screens

The LOGIMAT® Vertical Lift Module is easy to operate with its intuitive graphical interface and 7", 12", or 17" touch panel sizes. This extremely user-friendly system simplifies and speeds up your workflows meaning you benefit from an overall reduction in costs.

o LOGIDRAWER - Additional drawer under the operating opening

The LOGIDRAWER uses a drawer under the operating opening to optimally utilize the easily accessible storage volume in the storage lift.

o LOGISTAINLESS - Stainless, corrosion- resistant paneling of the access opening in chrome steel

o High Industrial Internet Security thanks to Industrial-Ethernet Firewall Router

Comprehensive internet security is becoming increasingly important in automation. LOGIMAT® is prepared for these current challenges by using NAT-Router + Firewall

What is the product’s main benefit for the customer?

SSI SCHAEFER’s LOGIMAT® vertical storage lifts provide you with a storage and picking solution in one system. The state-of-the-art storage lift utilizes the goods-to-person principle and sets standards in performance and ergonomic operating comfort.

The LOGIMAT® can be optimally adapted to all site conditions with eight different model widths and two model depths along with a freely selectable machine height of up to 24 meters. The compact design makes maximum use of the available height on site. The system adapts to all your site conditions, whether separate supply and removal sides, two-sided supply or removal one level higher, whether the system is located in the basement, as a ceiling breakthrough, or recessed into the floor. The LOGIMAT® storage lift can be fitted on the external facade of a warehouse, if necessary. This construction serves to reduce the construction costs for expanding the warehouse to a minimum.

Can these benefits be expressed in numbers?

o Streamlined warehouse processes (picking and replenishment)

o Scalable solution that can be easily connected to existing processes

o Up to 90% less storage space required compared to static storage solutions

o Elimination of unnecessary work steps: travel times reduced by more than 70%

o Automated processes and ergonomic design increase performance by more than 20%

o Minimization of the picking error rate

o Standard control (PLC) for seamless connection to the customer's ERP or SAP systems

o Intuitive user interface with touch panel

o Everything from a single source: from hardware and software to a sophisticated after-sales concept

In what way does the product relate to the motto of HANNOVER MESSE and/or CeMAT (“Integrated Industry – Connect & Collaborate” and/or “Connected Supply Chain”)?

The digital transformation is changing intralogistics processes. It is having a particularly large impact on the supply chain: the new, digitized supply chain is more interconnected, intelligent, scalable, and flexible. Whether it is used as a stand-alone solution, in conjunction with other lift modules or as a system integrated into an automated application with warehouse management software, the LOGIMAT® Vertical Lift Module from SSI SCHAEFER is the ideal solution for overcoming the challenges of the digital age. The LOGIMAT® Vertical Lift Module can be integrated into existing processes at any time and will adapt flexibly to your individual requirements.

In what way does the product contribute to integrated processes and/or Industry 4.0?

The LOGIMAT® Vertical Lift Module from SSI SCHAEFER can be operated either as an autonomous system or as a system connected to a higher-level ERP system such as SAP. Applications include extremely straightforward tray management and item management through to order processing – each project is based around a clear and reliable standard solution.

If required, this can be tailored flexibly to your logistics requirements through simple enhancements.

To what extent does the product reflect the idea of integration (of employees, external business partners, processes)?

The standard PLC from SSI SCHAEFER controls all drives via frequency control, monitors the storage bin, and ensures the safe operation of up to four operating openings per lift module.You can of course control the lift modules using your own warehouse management software. The LOGIDRIVER interface enables the trays to be controlled with your existing software. For further information, please contact your local specialists at SSI SCHAEFER.

Are there any other important points that you can think of?

The storage lift is equipped with numerous standardized functions. These eliminate the need for expensive expansions for additional options. The consistently modular design makes the LOGIMAT® storage lift a scalable solution and a highly reliable investment. As

SSI SCHAEFER always utilizes high quality components such as the robust rack and pinion drive, the system is also distinguished by its minimal wear and low-maintenance requirements.

SSI SCHAEFER offers a broad range of options, including various exclusive solutions, to customize and expand the LOGIMAT®.

The LOGITILT tilting system for ergonomic removal of the goods and gripping depth reduction.

LOGIWORK enables the height of the delivery table to be adjusted to the employee’s height.

The LMB container series as partitioning accessories for a trade depth of 800 mm guarantees maximum use of the storage space
