TePe Munhygienprodukter in Malmö manufactures, among other things, 11 million toothbrushes a year.
To cope with increased volumes, the production of toothbrushes has been moved to new premises designed for an improved flow. The store for the raw materials and semi-finished goods is placed next to toothbrush production and in between stands a Compact Lift.
The vertical storage lift is filled from the store side, and in the production area the operators fetch components according to an order specification. This saves time, since the operators don’t need to look for parts in the store and the truck drivers, on the other side of the wall, can concentrate on handling the goods without any risk of incidents.
