In the scope of the Blue Competence sustainability initiative of VDMA, GEBHARDT takes on board complete responsibility for economy, ecology and society. The objective is minimisation of the energy and resource consumption by innovative technology.
Lowering costs, protecting the environment
The Blue Competence initiative of the VDMA helps to find sustainable products and companies who adopt sustainability. GEBHARDT decided early on to place its products and services under the Blue Competence flag of the VDMA. It has always been our objective to develop machines that keep the energy consumption as low as possible. This objective becomes more and more important particularly in times of increasing energy prices. GEBHARDT combines innovative software with advanced mechanics to achieve this objective. Optimisation that only includes individual components utilises only a small part of the optimisation potential. In intralogistics the overall system must be monitored. One example of this is the GEBHARDT dynamic handover system. The combination of shuttle and ASRS technology increases efficiency considerably. The reduction of energy consumption often goes hand in hand with the also welcome effect of wear reduction. Both together reduce the operating costs and make the logistics centre more efficient.
