Jungheinrich showcases intelligent IT solutions for intralogistics at CeBIT

Mobile and integrated warehouse solutions


At CeBIT - the world's biggest information technology trade fair - Jungheinrich is showcasing its innovative intralogistics hardware and software solutions. Running from March 14th to 18th in Hannover, Germany, the event features integrated, holistic intralogistics solutions for manual and fully automated warehouses. The innovations on display at the Jungheinrich exhibition booth include the WMS Series 2 system for small and medium-sized enterprises and the new WMT 110/115 vehicle terminal.

Developed entirely in-house, the Jungheinrich WMS warehouse management system as well as its new WMS Series 2 entry-level version provides clients with a solution that can be used to manage any warehouse - both manual and automated - optimising travel routes and storage access operations in the process. Based on standardised, field-tested processes, the WMS Series 2 handles all basic logistics functionalities - from incoming to outgoing goods. In addition to a comprehensive master data management system and a periodic inventory function, the WMS Series 2 offers numerous other central control features. The HOST interface included in the package facilitates smooth communication with the customer's existing system environment. Jungheinrich is thus now able to offer an entry-level warehouse management system especially targeted at small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) which, thanks to standardised processes and Jungheinrich's extensive experience in project completion, can be rolled out at the customer's facility in just a few weeks.

Another highlight at the exhibition: the Jungheinrich WMT 110/115 Warehouse Management Terminal. Featuring a narrow, compact design, this high protection class device is especially designed for deployment in forklift and logistics applications in tough industrial environments. The terminal's high shock and vibration resistance as well as its dust and spray water protection have earned it the IP65 protection class. The Radio Data Terminal is ideal to operate, thanks to its brightly lit, easily readable 10.4 or 15.1 inch display which comes with capacitive or resistive touch technology and four freely configurable, duplicate assignment front keys. The fanless design features maintenance-free, shock-resistant components and a standard cold storage capacity down to -30°C so that the terminal can be reliably operated in any environment.

One of the key themes at this year's IT exhibition involves the increasing integration of machines and devices (the Internet of Things), with experts forecasting over 50 billion networked devices globally by 2020. Consequently Jungheinrich is highlighting its award winning middleware, the Jungheinrich Logistics Interface, which is installed on the customer's truck terminal or network server from which it communicates with manually operated or automated trucks, with sensors in the warehouse or with other warehouse equipment. The Logistics Interface has a number of standard frontends to virtually any warehouse management system (WMS) as well as other company-specific software. Jungheinrich has thus succeeded in creating software which can connect any type of IT system with other systems and the relevant hardware and which also takes into consideration the great diversity of warehouse IT solutions, intralogistics processes and applications.
