Fourth sheet metal blanks high-bay warehouse for automobile production

James Hardie, a pioneer in fiber cement, is breaking the mold in the US with a new fully automated production line for facade siding. The integrated concept of heavy-duty expert Vollert includes in-plant transport, an air-conditioned, 100 m long high-bay warehouse, transfer tables, manipulators and automatically clocked autoclave trains. Tons of facade boards are loaded and unloaded within minutes. Automation accelerates the pace, reduces waste and saves space.

The transfer table allows for flexible arrangement of individual processing stations and offers the highest level of safety for crossing passenger traffic.
Up and away – Continental exchanges 75 meters of test track in a matter of minutes
Anything but small, the exchangeable pavement cassettes used in the world's first fully climatized indoor tire testing facility from Continental weigh more than 100 tons and measure 75 meters in length. The facility allows the tire manufacturer to conduct 100,000 dry and wet brake tests per year using up to five different sections of test pavement. Vollert developed the system that quickly changes the cassettes.
Battery-powered, emissions-free transporters that operate without a driver are being used for the first time at HHLA Container Terminal Altenwerder (CTA).
