Larger - Heavier - Broader - the matching Stacker Crane from LTW
An Austrian material manufacturer approaches the LTW team with a very special request: He needs a fully automated high-bay warehouse to make the storage of his goods more efficient. He needs direct access to every single article. In addition, his stored goods require a maturing time under climate-controlled conditions, which requires an enormous amount of space.
The request itself is not a great challenge for LTW as a full-service provider for intralogistics solutions. But as it turns out, the requirements are something special: The goods to be stored are up to 31 m long and weigh up to 13,500 kg.
The most experienced LTW technicians gather and develop an unprecedented and previously unique solution. In order to be able to confirm the idea in practice, LTW builds an 80 m long and 5 m wide test setup together with the customer. The LTW team collects and evaluates findings on an area of about 400 m². Especially the departments of statics and automation engineering are facing a great challenge. LTW's great commitment has paid off - the customer is convinced and decides in favor of LTW as a full-range supplier despite other competitors. After intensive planning, project engineering and testing, the team succeeded in finding a unique solution.
LTW erects the first stacker crane with a push/pull device for this size of goods: It is composed of two stacker crane frames and carries a three-part lifting carriage with a total width of 31 meters. Including the payload of 13.5 tons, the total weight of the stacker crane is 80 tons.
After intensive planning and construction work, the project is completed after 18 months. At the beginning of 2020, the high-bay warehouse starts operations: The 31 m long goods are stored longitudinal single deep in about 600 storage locations. The customer is enthusiastic - he has expressed great compliments to LTW for the performance of the machines and the well-organized project management.
Convince yourself of our remarkable special solution:

Corona virus: Measures to protect employees, partners and customers
Due to the current situation LTW has taken appropriate measures to contribute against the spread of the corona virus.
In the interest of protecting the health of our employees, partners and customers, we have reduced social contacts with other people to a minimum. Our employees therefore mostly work at home or are at the office in shift work. LTW has already taken measures in recent weeks to counteract the spread: travel restrictions, compliance with hygiene rules, bringing back employees from endangered areas and much more.
Please understand that contact can currently only take place via telephone, email or other digital platforms.
Our staff will try to find a solution together with you.
Nevertheless, our head office is available for you as usual at +43 5574 6829-0 from Monday to Friday. Therefore, we can assure you that your requests will be processed. Delays may occur under certain circumstances, but we will always try to process all your requests as quickly as possible.
If we all contribute to the current situation, we can soon return to normality.
We make our contribution to society - together we can do it!

LogiMAT 2019 - Review
LTW Intralogistics- Solutions from a single source
This year LTW Intralogistics did participate as an exhibitor at the LogiMAT trade show. From February 19th to 21st, the 17th international exhibition for intralogistics solutions and process management took place in Stuttgart. As in previous years, the number of visitors was impressive - for the first time, the LogiMAT surpassed the 60,000 trade visitors' mark, with around 20% attendees from abroad. Besides, it has grown considerably in terms of space - with 7,500 additional square meters, the total exhibitor space is now beyond 120,000 square meters.
Not only the trade show evolved, also LTW´s booth got a new design by focusing to welcome many interested visitors on two levels now. The bright design, the openness and the “homely” feeling accompanied by the wooden design was very well received by our guests.
"The open exhibition stand proved to be an ideal platform to get in contact with interested visitors. In addition, the cozy atmosphere provided a good basis to maintaining and strengthen existing customer relationships," Christian Baldauf, Head of Sales and Marketing, announces a successful trade fair balance.
At the booth the visitors already had the opportunity to experience LTW solutions first-hand. Until now, we presented our product range on the component base, now we took the next step and focused on complete solutions for a wide variety of requirements. The large 3D rendering of a high-bay warehouse, illustrated in the picture above, visualized the LTW portfolio impressively: from stacker cranes and conveyor systems to software, various additional services, as well as service and system modernization (retrofit). New animations were presented on a touch screen. With this interactive tool our guests could convince themselves of our extensive product range as a full service supplier – LTW Intralogistics offers complete solutions for a wide range of intralogistics requirements.
We would like to thank all our customers, partners and visitors for their contribution to our successful LogiMAT exhibition and look forward to warmly receive them on future occasions.
