The Material Warehouse is designed in order to fed magazines/boxes to the warehouse without manual intervention. The magazines are automatically identified, and all booking procedures are carried out with superordinate material management systems. At appropriate requisition, the warehouse makes the parts available to the subsequent process. In order to use large storage areas for magazines and other materials more efficiently as productive space, Material Warehouse uses the third dimension, i.e. the existing room height, to reduce the floor space of the storage area by up to 75 % compared to existing storage areas. The partitioning is based on a flexible grid system. Thus the warehouse can accommodate not only PCB magazines but also small load carriers such as boxes or trays. Due to the single place storage, a direct access to each stored PCB magazine is always guaranteed.
