Initial situation

  • Lean production concept introduced several years ago
  • Just-in-sequence supply
  • LKE KLT shelf wagon and platform wagon already in use
  • Small raw units are collected from the production line in KLT and picked > Risk of overflow as employee operates several machines simultaneously
  • Use of production racks for material supply at the workplace, these are inflexible and not ergonomic

Customer request

  • Holistic transport of small load carriers (KLT) - from the warehouse to the provision of KLT boxes at the workplace
  • Modification of existing KLT trolleys so that their shelves offer space for a multiple number of components
  • Volume reduction at the workstations
  • Ergonomic solution for the reception and picking of the small raw units
  • Space-saving, flexible and ergonomic solution for material supply at the production lines

LKE solution

  • Modification KLT Shelf Trolley > Inlay

  • KOMBIX rack/carriage systems replace the production racks

  • Ergonomic spring floor trolley for the collection of the pipe parts

Spring floor trolley

Optimal, ergonomic solution - vertically movable base, if the weight of the contents drops, the small parts still remain at the same handle height

  • Vertically movable floor - always keeps the load at a constant height
  • Back-friendly due to ergonomic working height
  • No canting of the floor with one-sided loading
  • Individual spring force possible
  • Various sizes and volumes available


  • Material supply of the units in the tugger train system > Especially in the peak times with high throughput: more flexible and accelerated process

  • Individual use of the KLT shelf trolleys

  • The modular, flexible shelving/carriage system allows employees to assemble an ergonomic and ideal companion for all process steps within assembly from individual tubular elements, shelves and rollers within a very short time and without tools
  • The spring floor trolley reduces the drop height of the production parts, the crate is eliminated, the production parts are collected directly in the trolley and can then be picked ergonomically
  • Significantly increased productivity
  • Ergonomic work - employee downtime demonstrably minimized
