  • Weland Lagersystem is changing its name

    26/09/2018

    Weland Lagersystem, with their space saving warehouse- and effective logistics solutions, is expanding and now sell more on the export market than in Sweden. – Today we are a global company with an international target. We are now strengthening our organisation and expanding our offer in order to grow along with our customers. At the same time we are changing our name to Weland Solutions AB, says Björn Karlsson, CEO.

    From Småland out into the world
    The company was started in Smålandsstenar in 1999 and has grown steadily ever since. Today the company's products and solutions can be found in installations in 28 countries. – Our largest single market is still Sweden, but export sales are since long larger and continue to grow. We are now adjusting our sales organisation to keep growing, but we are also strengthening our service and support division. To us it's a big difference between simply selling and being able to fully work together with our customers.

    Expanded export offerings
    The business concept has been the same since the beginning. The company develops and manufactures vertical storage lifts and storage equipment to achieve the best possible storage capacity for the available footprint. – To us, flexibility and quality will always come before standard. Customers get complete, customised warehouse management systems that optimize logistics in an optimal way. That is one of the reasons we gained the trust to follow our customers throughout the world. Small and medium sized companies, but also large global brands like Procter & Gamble, Jaguar and Landrover, Scania and Volkswagen. Nevertheless, all our development, construction and manufacturing still take place in Gislaved.

    Kickoff at Elmia Subcontractor
    For a closer look at Weland Solutions and a chance to talk more about customised vertical storage lifts, innovative warehouse management systems and cost-effective logistics, we'll be exhibiting at Elmia Subcontractor on November 13-16. – We look forward to the trade fair. It's always good to meet customers and colleagues in the business. For us, the trade fair will also be a clear start to our global venture, with a sharpened organization and a new name, says Björn Karlsson, CEO of Weland Solutions AB.

  • From a traditional shelving system to an acclaimed storage system

    03/09/2018

    Rimaster is a leading company in the development and manufacture of cable harnesses, electrical cabinets, electronics, cabs and mechanical systems for special vehicles and industrial systems. Rimaster never compromises on the quality of its products and, when it decided to invest in a more efficient storage system, it got in touch with another supplier that puts quality first: Weland Solutions.

    A smart, customised storage system

    Weland Solutions calculated how much space, time and labour Rimaster would save by choosing the right products. The figures spoke for themselves. Rimaster ordered an end-to-end system comprising three Compact Twin 3660 vertical storage lifts, extra load trays, the WMS system Compact Store including Compact Talk, Picking Display and LED Strip. Weland Solutions recommended combining this with a Put to Light system, which has become an increasingly popular solution for further improving picking operations and storage management.

    An excellent start and a promising future

    Rimaster had its new storage system installed in September 2017. It is too early yet to talk about results, but there is a huge difference. Rimaster is more than satisfied with its new automated storage management system.

  • Control the vertical storage lift with mobile devices

    06/07/2018

    Compact vertical storage lifts mean faster and easier handling on a significantly smaller storage area. Now, the efficiency has been upgraded again. – The news is that you can now control Compact vertical storage lifts via mobile devices instead of via a computer, which means you save time on every order. A small investment that gives large gains, especially for pick intensive businesses in e-commerce and the retail trade.

    Customisation personified

    The person at the warehouse starts the order directly from his or her mobile phone or tablet computer and only sees his/her order on the screen. This saves a great deal of time and walking along aisles, while the risk for making picking mistakes is reduced. This new and modern way of working improves the work situation and the efficiency of the storage management for each employee.

    The full solution in the mobile device

    Compact vertical storage lifts are controlled by our own WMS system, Compact Store, which has been delivered to more than 200 companies. Including Rolls Royce, TetraPak and Ur&Penn. The system includes support for all of the work steps that are included in normal storage management. All of this is now available on a mobile phone or tablet computer via good WiFi.

  • Scandinavia's largest vertical storage lift system

    06/07/2018

    Volkswagen Parts Logistics in Nykvarn supplies authorised workshops with spare parts for the Volkswagen Group's makes of cars in the Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish markets. Compact vertical storage lifts have increased the picking rate. – Every day, more than 14,500 rows a day are picked for 240 dealers. The spare parts warehouse has 54 vertical storage lifts, which probably makes it the largest vertical storage lift system in Scandinavia, says Peter Johansson at Weland Solutions.

    Hub for the whole of Scandinavia

    The partnership with Volkswagen began back in 2004. – The spare parts warehouse was located in Södertälje in those days. However, the expansion of the business drove the need to increase storage capacity and a brand new spare parts facility was built in Nykvarn. This would serve as a hub for the whole of Scandinavia. Weland was entrusted with supplying space-efficient vertical storage lifts with a high picking speed because the client wanted the maximum storage capacity possible in the least possible amount of space.

    57 vertical storage lifts later

    Ten years on, Volkswagen Parts Logistics is now one of Scandinavia's largest vertical storage lift facilities. – This massive facility houses 54 Compact Twin automated pickers and three Compact Lifts, which are high-grade, customised, fully-automated buffer systems that are designed for unmanned operation. The buffer systems make it possible to keep an order open all day and fill it as needed, and still have it delivered the next day.

  • Rollco streamlines with Weland Solutions

    19/02/2018

    Rollco specialize in components for linear movements and automated solutions for industry. To attain a more efficient and structured way of working with their warehouse management they contacted Weland Solutions. The foundation in the new system are three vertical storage lifts of the type Compact Twin Heavy 2440 which are supplemented with additional load trays, different picking aids, and the WMS system Compact Store (Warehouse Management System).

    A unique vertical storage lift

    With the Compact Twin Rollco could save floor space, increase the picking rate and ensure that the storage space was utilised in the best manner. Compact Twin is a unique vertical storage lift and the only one on the market that can handle two load trays simultaneously.

    Supplementary picking aids

    To further streamline the picking process Rollco chose to supplement the vertical storage lift with four different picking aids: LED strip, Put to Light, Picking display, and Foot pedal. The LED strip helps the operator by indicating where on the load tray an item should be picked. Put to Light, which allows Rollco to pick up to 20 orders simultaneously, then indicates the customer order in which the goods should be placed. The picking display shows an overview of the load tray and using the foot pedal the operator can acknowledge the picking hands-free.

  • 100 tonnes in-shop with space-smart vertical storage lift

    21/12/2017

    In the middle of their store, Göhlins has placed a Compact Double. The vertical storage lift can store up to 100 tonnes, which is a lot for a store, and perfect for an actor like Göhlins who deliver heavier products. The machine is also directly connected to the business system which means that as soon as a customer has placed an order, it's ready for pickup or delivery.

    A solid and safe machine

    Compact Double is a solid machine and the only vertical storage lift with this much storage space on such a small area. The principle is based on Weland Solutions' somewhat more common vertical storage lift Compact Twin, where the machine can fetch two trays at the same time. This means that one tray can move out ordered products while the other is working inside the machine.

    - When you place an order the vertical storage lift moves up to fetch the product, regardless of if it's placed online or in-store. The vertical storage lift will then serve the product on a tray for pickup. Customers can as such feel confident that no-one else can pickup their order, says Björn Karlsson, CEO at Weland Solutions.

    The vertical storage lift resembles a tall tower in which Göhlins stock their products. This safe system means security even for Göhlins as nobody can steal anything from the store, plus it saves a lot of time for personnel with automatic picking.

    Systems for the future

    To connect vertical storage lifts to business systems is becoming more and more common, Björn explains, but for custmers to get their orders directly in the store is something unique. With this investment Göhlins show that they are in the forefront of inventory management. Björn develops further:

    - Imagine if we down the road could place vertical storage lifts at delivery points. Then you need to stand in line to pickup a package and stores don't need to have personnel available. The end customer would just need to enter an order number to pickup his goods himself.

  • Easy warehouse handling with Compact Store

    15/06/2017

    Compact Store makes it easy to streamline the warehouse. The system is built to effectively manage Weland Solutions' vertical storage lift.

    Weland Solutions and Kodverkstan have jointly developed the Warehouse Management System (WMS) Compact Store. The system creates order at the warehouse and streamlines the picking at the vertical storage lift.

    Support for working moment

    The system provides support for all the tasks that are part of normal stock management such as delivery, compilation, prioritization and launching of picking orders, relocation and refilling of articles and inventory.

    Compact Store can be used as an entirely independent system, but it is usually linked to an ERP-system (Enterprise Resource Planning). The business system manages the economy and Compact Store can be seen as the warehouse module. The Compact Store has been linked with most commercially available business systems.

  • Trolley is an intelligent new solution

    04/06/2015

    In some operations, there is a wish for the option to take a complete tray out and ”borrow” it from the vertical storage lift. For this reason, we have developed a customized Trolley.

    Trolley can make the operator's job easier, when it is possible to borrow complete trays from the vertical storage lift.

    Areas of application

    In the following cases, Trolley can facilitate and rationalise the activities:

    • When tools and parts are on just the one tray prior to assembly.
    • When there are preassembled parts on the tray. The tray is borrowed and conveyed to assembly
    • Tools for a machine setup can be available ready-to-use on the tray, which is conveyed to the machine for setting up.
    • When there are heavy and cumbersome parts on the tray. The tray can be moved to an overhead crane or other crane for unloading.
    • Complete kit for service and replacement can be on the tray, which is conveyed to the machine/plant that is to be repaired.
