Abstract [en]

This thesis has been conducted at Bosch Rexroth’s hydraulics

plant in Älvsjö at the section StoP/MFG during a time period of

ten weeks. The assignment has been an investigative work

connected to an investment project, where a vertical lift

module used for long goods, have been purchased for the plant.

Bosch Rexroth has a make-to-order approach when they

manufacture their hydraulic cylinders, in other words, the

hydraulic cylinders are not made to stock for later sales. By

having a make-to-stock supply chain, there are a lot of variation

between the different manufactured cylinder types. To respond

quickly to the customer needs, a large stock level of different

goods must be kept.

The manufacturing plant has for some time had some problems

regarding the handling of goods with lack of storage space,

faulty goods picking and unsafe lifting procedures. These

problem became significantly more noticeable when a new

material for piston rods got introduced at the plant. To reduce

the area on which stock are kept and lower the amount of

faulty goods picking, the plant invested in a vertical lift module.

This thesis describes a solution proposal in which large

amounts of Bosch Rexroth’s long goods are placed in the

vertical lift module. Instead of focusing on a fast handling, the

solution focuses on a placement in which it is difficult to make

picking errors and adding goods to the wrong place. The lifting

tools presented are easy to use and will be a safe alternative for

lifting goods.
