Strong products are the result of innovation, strategy, clear processes as well as a customer-oriented and reliable team”
KASTO offers a wide selection of long material storage systems for bars, tubes, profiles and beams, all tailored to individual requirements or architectural conditions. KASTO also offers a broad range of metal storage systems for any tasks, storage quantities and handling speeds. Due to the various formats of sheet metal, it poses unique challenges to its storage and transport.
Just in time production: Fully automated KASTO storage - sawing systems produce exactly what is needed in this moment - without wastage”
Whether fully automated high rack or manual storage systems, the Warehouse Management System (WMS) Software Suite KASTOlogic supports your work processes and helps organise them efficiently. Thanks to the digitalisation of the order picking processes, you increase their safety and flexibility.
Greater operator convenience
A graphic user-friendly interface, designed based on a consistent operating philosophy covering simple controls through to job processing, supports the operator in daily warehousing tasks.
Integrated algorithms continuously generate statistics, enabling the detection of bottlenecks in the automated storage system. The system’s full potential is utilised by making adjustments to the material flow strategies. A modern 3D simulation checks and assesses potential system modifications.
KASTOlogic enables the integration of sawing machines and material handling equipment, such as robotics, bar singling devices, roller conveyors manufactured by KASTO or by other leading manufacturers. Integrated order and production management provides an improved overview of the capacity of the connected production machinery, focusing on the fields of sawing, stamping and laser cutting.
Capacity, running times and wear in the warehouse system are improved through the established and proven and individually adjustable algorithms as well as intelligent warehouse strategies.
KASTO. Warehouse system optimises sheet metal manufacturing
De Cromvoirtse, located in Oisterwijk in the Netherlands, specialises in semi-finished products. In 2008, the idea took shape, not only to automate the ordering process but also the entire parts manufacturing. The company began its search for a suitable project partner and quickly established its initial contact with KASTO in Achern-Gamshurst. The decision was made in favour of KASTO because, from the very beginning, the specialist in warehouse technology collaborated with de Cromvoirtse constructively, incorporated many new ideas into the project and established problem-oriented solutions.
In addition, KASTO is independent from the supplier of the laser machine on which the parts are manufactured. In this manner, de Cromvoirtse could integrate the most optimum machine for the company at any time. The tremendous scope of development, in particular, in the IT sector, created confidence and trust with the Dutch partners.
