Efficient flow of goods throughout the whole production process, even across different floors

At RDL Engineering, we are specializing in designing and setting up automation and internal transport systems, such as conveyors, lifting and hoisting systems, robot projects and automated guided vehicles. We complete projects from A to Z, from design to commissioning, with a staff of some 30.

Backed by an expertise acquired over many years in goods handling, horizontal and vertical movements, RDL Engineering presents a new logistics concept, the RDL Backbone. 

RDL-backbone

RDL backbone ensures an efficient flow of goods throughout the whole production process and across different floors.

Thanks to the accessibility of each pallet or box within this new logistics system, all items (raw materials, semi-finished products, final products, order-picked goods, etc.) can be stored in the same warehouse. RDL backbone ensures an efficient flow of goods throughout the whole production process and even across different floors.

THREE VERSIONS, ALL BESPOKE TO YOUR NEEDS

  • 1D-backbone
    This entry-level version comes with a lifting system and infeed and outfeed roller conveyors that combine seamlessly with one another.
  • 2D-backbone
    Here, the 1D backbone version is modularly extended with a mobile lifting system that can control multiple roller conveyors and workstations.
  • 3D-backbone
    Here, the lifting system is rotating inside a mesh shaft.

 

BENEFITS TO THE WHOLE PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENT

  • Space Efficient
    • Vertical production, order picking, transport and storage
    • Located centrally in the building
    • Raw materials, semi-finished products and final products in 1 buffer storage
  • Modulair
    • Additional rails and racks can be added
    • More entries and exits can be easily added
    • Manual entries and exits can be automated
  • Proper Order and Efficient Flow
    • The imbalance between manufacturing cells is redressed
    • FIFO, LIFO, urgent pallet request,… can be flexibly called
    • No missing pallets any longer

Numerous applications

  • Production / assembly at ground floor level – Order picking at storey level
  • Production / assembly at ground floor level – Pre-production at storey level
  • Production / assembly at ground floor level – Packaging at storey level
  • Connection between manual and automatic production
