LTW AT THE LogiMAT 2018
PERFECT INTERACTION OF HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE
LTW Intralogistics will present itself at LogiMAT as full-service provider with expanded expertise in the field of software. In the area of internal material flow, the merger with the company Metasyst enables LTW to now also score with picking software and forklift management systems in addition to warehouse management systems.
In line with the current trend, customers are increasingly looking for more complete solutions from one reliable and capable partner for the complete task. Aspects that are becoming more and more important in the implementation process are the optimal interaction of all the system components, the responsibilities in case of interruptions and the smooth functioning of aftersales service.
HARDWARE MEETS SOFTWARE
As a machine builder, we are mainly associated with the subject of hardware – our products are functional, reliable and of high-quality. For more than 15 years, precise software solutions for material flow have also been part of our portfolio.
However, the development of the last few years has elevated the importance of software in the most diverse industries to a new level. In intralogistics, too, broadly based software is more frequently used as a merging element in exchange for electromechanical solutions. A wide range of system components is coordinated, networked and communicate at the process level. If these components also speak the same language in terms of software, as is the case with LTW complete solutions, they are close to the ideal state of interaction or, simply stated: in the flow.
A CONFIDENT LOOK TO THE FUTURE
We are confident that, thanks to our extended product and service range, there will only be a few challenges in the future in the area of high-bay warehouses that we cannot turn into a LTW solution. We invite you to work together with us to shape the path from idea to smooth system operation (Hall 1/B35).

CONCENTRATED SOFTWARE SKILLS UNDER THE UMBRELLA
HARDWARE MEETS SOFTWARE
An automatic intralogistics system consists of hardware and the appropriate software. If both parts speak the same language they are in an ideal state of flawless interaction, to sum up: in flow.
We aspire this ideal state, so we can arise as a stronger full-service provider in future and are able to fulfill customer requirements even more precisely - from rack to software.
The Team of our new Viennese branch: decade-long experience in the field of logistic-software.
Since the beginning of the year 2018 the Viennese LTW Intralogistics branch supports us due to their software skills. As a result of this alliance between Metasyst and LTW we are capable to implement even more complex software requirements. The projects put into practice together so far intensified and strengthened our cooperation.
Located in beautiful Vienna we found a strong partner and we want to very warmly welcome the new members to LTW.

METASYST ENHANCES LTW
COMBINED SOFTWARE COMPETENCE FOR INTRALOGISTICS
On 10 April 2017, LTW Intralogistics took over the Viennese software company, Metasyst Informatik, thereby enhancing its software competencies The merger process with the specialist for warehouse management systems, which started in the middle of 2016, was successfully completed.
“For several years already, we have maintained a successful partnership with Metasyst Informatik GmbH, which was founded in 1990. The great relationship is now resulting in a complete integration,” said Konrad Eberle, chief executive officer of LTW Intralogistics, explaining the situation. Metasyst has an industryneutral warehouse management system that meets the requirements of both standard logistics processes as well as dynamic order-picking processes.
In addition to this, Metasyst, which is active throughout Europe, also offers comprehensive multilingual solutions in the field of material flow control and 3D visualisation, plus forklift management systems as well as software for the optimisation of inventory, packaging and shipping processes.
The Metasyst team consisting of around 30 members of staff will be providing support to the LTW Software Department in the future from Vienna.
“By means of the merger with Metasyst we are strengthening our own software resources and creating additional opportunities for entering new business segments”, said Konrad Eberle, putting it in a nutshell. “We are thereby making considerable headway for the further growth of LTW in the global intralogistics market.”
The chief executive officers (CEO) of Metasyst, Karl Kaufmann and Günther Laber, expect intensive synergies to take place: “In a rapidly changing competitive environment, this new organisation is crucial for Metasyst’s continuous further development. We see great potential in the even closer collaboration of both companies in the future.”
