• Storage system with ChannelCar from de Man


Are you also annoyed by too little space in your warehouse? Are the storage and retrieval processes taking too long? Has your warehouse order lost its logic and practicality in the meantime? Then let's work together to make your warehouse processes much more efficient! For 50 years, de Man has been planning and building automatic storage systems. Our warehouses are characterized by their high handling capacity, storage density and availability.

Whether it's an automated small parts, pallet or special warehouse: Together with you, we develop the storage system that is ideally tailored to your requirements in terms of space, necessary storage capacities and speed!

Depending on the requirements, all variants are available in single, double or multi-deep storage. Our patented and cordless ChannelCar, a system for space-saving multi-deep storage of containers or pallets, is used for this purpose.

Special form: long goods storage

For our long goods warehouses, we rely on the form of cantilever racks, as these are ideal for the storage of long goods. In the standard version, the long goods warehouse offers a total capacity of 34 storage locations (other sizes are also available as an option). The stored goods are deposited in tin trays (tubs), in this way even small parts can be stored without any problems. The trays are transported to the lift system via a manually controlled, pneumatically moved roller conveyor, by means of which the load units are stored and retrieved within the racking system.

The cordless design makes our ChannelCar extremely easy to maintain and flexible to use. How it works: The stacker crane runs on a rail in front of the rack aisles, each of which has several storage locations for the stored goods. The built-in ChannelCar can detach from the stacker crane, retract into the shelf below the storage boxes and thus also reach the rear seats. Due to this mode of operation, in which only one lane is needed for the stacker crane, the warehouse is very compact. Thus, the system is also ideally suited for existing premises. The investment is comparatively low, as only one stacker crane is required.

de Man Simulation: The virtual commissioning of your plant

On request, we can create a 3D simulation of your new system during the planning phase. In this way, future motion sequences and the factors acting on them can be simulated and optimized even better and, if necessary, components can be adapted. This minimizes the risk of time-consuming and costly rework. At the same time, you get a realistic insight into the appearance and function of your system.


Advantages of a 3D simulation: 
- Carrying out accessibility analyses
- Exclusion of collisions
- Reduction of downtime
- Simulation of different production/warehouse scenarios
- Preparation of offline programming of a robot
- Faster commissioning

de Man control software: Intuitive to use

Our systems are very complex. This makes it all the more important that the operation is simple and convenient. Our intuitive operating concept enables your employees to operate the system error-free after a short training session. The visualization of all system components as well as self-explanatory symbols make it easier to understand the processes. In the main view, a clear, schematic representation of the entire system allows the operator quick access to all areas. As usual with smartphones or tablets, all menus and functions are selected by a simple click on the touch panel. The modification of parameters and process data as well as the creation of new palletizing schemes can also be carried out in just a few steps. Thanks to the high level of ease of use, the training period and operating errors can be significantly reduced.
