AFT Schopfheim will provide a high-bay body storage with offshore material handling equipment.
The storage is provided as a buffer for the car bodies of the BMW Mini and located between the body- and the paint shop. For transportation and storage of the bodies the typical BMW transport trusses will be used. The high-bay storage will have 3-rack aisles and about 450 storage spaces. The used stacker cranes are an AFT own development. A special feature will be that the car bodies are transported without any transport aids (skid or similar) on the chain conveyors.
