HAIGER/LAUFEN - Since the end of 2020, Stöcklin Logistik AG has been welding lifting platforms and mast modules for stacker cranes with a new 2-station robot system of Carl Cloos Schweisstechnik GmbH. The specialists for intralogistics systems and software as well as for forklifts moved to a new location last year and invested heavily in innovative manufacturing technologies. By switching to automated welding technology, Stöcklin was able to significantly accelerate production processes, reduce non-productive time and raise the product quality to a new level.
Individual total solutions for logistics "As a manufacturer of complete storage and logistics systems, we have been planning, projecting and implementing turnkey systems tailored to individual customer needs for more than 80 years," says Peter Voser, who as a member of the Executive Board at Stöcklin is responsible for the Supply Chain Management and Production divisions. "Our goal is to strengthen the competitiveness of our customers on a long-term and sustainable basis."
Whether automotive, pharmaceutical, food, mechanical engineering or general industry - the Stöcklin logistics systems are used in all industries. Due to the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic, the company recorded a strong increase in orders, particularly in the e-commerce sector. "High availability of the systems is of enormous importance for all our customers," emphasises Voser. To ensure a quick response in the event of service, Stöcklin has numerous subsidiaries and service partners worldwide. In addition, customers are directly connected to the company headquarters via a remote system in order to rectify any errors easily and quickly.
New location with innovative production technologies The company has 550 employees worldwide, 350 of them at the main site in Laufen. The move to the new company headquarters took place in May 2020. When building and equipping the three production halls with a total of 10,000 sqm, Stöcklin attached great importance to innovative production technologies and sustainability.
For example, the production line for the manufacture of mast modules for stacker cranes was completely redesigned in this course. In addition to a new laser cutting system and a new processing machine, the welding technology should also be modernised and automated. "With CLOOS, we have found a reliable and competent partner who supplies us with all components for a complete automation solution from a single source," says production manager Morand Gaisser happily.
