(Marchtrenk, Austria, 21 February 2022) TGW Logistics Group is equipped with modern technology for the digital age. The automated warehouse systems integrator will be presenting the full spectrum of its digital services at the LogiMAT intralogistics trade fair in Stuttgart from May 31st to June 2nd. Those services cover the entire lifecycle of a system, including everything from planning to implementation to live operations. The spotlight will be on innovations that boost companies’ competitiveness.
"TGW can look back on more than fifty years of experience in the development of mechatronic modules and has successfully implemented hundreds of projects worldwide as a systems integrator. Thanks to our ever-expanding range of digital services, our customers are in an excellent position to face the demands of tomorrow," emphasizes Matthias Stötzner, Director of Sales at TGW Systems Integration. "TGW combines expertise in software and systems to offer customized, state-of-the-art end-to-end solutions."
In addition to modules, systems, and solutions, reference projects for notable customers such as Coop, PUMA, Fource, and Engelbert Strauss will also be highlighted at the TGW LogiMAT booth.
TGW’s Digital Lifecycle services and products cover all three phases of an automated warehouse system: planning, realization, and Lifetime Services. More than 600 TGW IT specialists look after over 500 systems around the globe. They develop new applications, implement tools, and maintain warehouses during operation.
Efficiency, transparency, and short return on investment are top considerations for customers. When digital services are provided by a systems integrator like TGW, all three are realized. This is because a wide suite of digital tools can be used by the one integration partner to design more efficient operations, speed up planning processes, test performance and reliability, maintain optimal operations after go-live, and offer insights on overall system performance.
TGW uses a variety of both well-established and newly developed digital tools. During the planning phase, these include 3D layouts, simulations, and intelligent data analyses. In the realization phase, TGW employs agile implementation, emulation, and performance checks. Once the warehouse system is operational, customers profit from TGW’s virtual testing environments, remote services, proactive monitoring, and more. Additionally, the multi-award-winning picking robot Rovolution boasts a digital twin: a complete digital representation that grows alongside the physical installation and is connected to it in real time. The use of these digital tools and others throughout the lifecycle keeps in line with the TGW motto: “We keep your business running.”
Companies that put their trust in TGW also have the advantage of receiving everything from a single source. Unlike software providers, TGW is able to plan and implement systems, produce the mechatronic components, and also handle the complex software integration. This enables TGW to easily gather data from all aspects of the automated warehouse system for evaluation, visualization, and optimization in a uniform manner.
The role of artificial intelligence in automated warehouse systems is also growing: with the help of self-learning algorithms, future scenarios can be modeled and evaluated. Working with an integrator like TGW, with access to all parts and processes of the warehouse system, ensures that such modern technology can be used to its full extent "Interconnected intralogistics systems that are capable of learning and self-optimization will play a huge role in the very near future. Our customers profit greatly from these advantages," affirms Johann Steinkellner, CEO Central Europe at TGW.
