Machine Tools

Be strong, stay strong. Quite simple.

Optimal: with Kardex Remstar not only do you raise your efficiency and save storage space you also create the leeway to shape your future. 

The machine tools sector has achieved what other sectors can only dream about: fantastic growth rates, record turnover, a share of about 20% of the world market. But even if the machine tools industry is booming in the longest period of growth for 25 years cost reduction and increasing efficiency remain relevant. Because: international competition in technology is getting harder, competitive pressure in the world market is getting stronger. So medium-sized companies, above all, are forced to outsource jobs to “cheaper” countries. Only those who can reduce costs but improve service and quality can buck this trend.

Logistics is the key

Better performance, even better service, the highest quality – with lower costs? A challenge that can only be met by greater efficiency. A glance at internal logistics processes is worthwhile because about four per cent of costs in the machine tools industry relate to logistics according to the VDI (German Engineers’ Association) company for materials handling, material flow and logistics. It is exactly here where the experts from Kardex Remstar come into action: we will examine operating processes, manufacturing and storage strategies as well as organisational forms and help you to optimise the whole work flow. From your suppliers to the work station in your plant.

Freedom for your success

Storing, buffering, preparation of material, parts and tools: by perfect harmonisation of all logistics processes, in-house and inbound, with Kardex Remstar you can tap significant rationalisation potential. Maximum availability with the lowest possible storage and transport costs are our most important guiding principles: we will develop complete system solutions for you that can also be incorporated into complex processes.
