Automatic sheet metal storage

Storage Systems

Automated sheet metal storage systems from Remmert are used worldwide by the most efficient metal construction and trading companies. The modular storage systems are specially designed for the storage of sheet metal and other flat goods. Remmert sheet metal storage systems are highly customizable and easy to integrate into machine and plant environments. 

Very compact tower storage system for storing sheet metal and other flat goods in the tightest of spaces close to production. The integrated lifting traverse provides fast, safe and ergonomic access to the sheets.

Highly variable storage system for medium to large quantities of sheet metal and other heavy and bulky goods. The fast storage and retrieval unit ensures an automated material flow to the connected processing machines and picking stations.

High-performance honeycomb cassette storage system for fast access times to large quantities of sheet metal and long goods. Remmert honeycomb storage systems are designed to customer specifications in order to optimize material flow and space utilization.

MAMMUT is the automation solution for efficient material flow of thick sheets and plates in CNC cutting processes. The system handles and buffers complete shuttle tables of raw and cut sheets up to 6 tons and 6000 x 3000 mm.

The advantages of automatic sheet metal storage systems

Increased Efficiency

Automated sheet storage systems can optimize material flow, resulting in a significant increase in efficiency. Automation allows for faster handling of sheets, which shortens production times and reduces cycle times.

Failure Reduction

Automation minimizes human failure and improves the accuracy of sheet infeed and outfeed. This reduces out-of-stock situations and waste. It also eliminates the need for troubleshooting.

Space Saving

Automated sheet metal storage systems can optimize usable space, as the machines and systems make better use of the available space at height. As a result, more sheets can be stored in a limited space.

Shorter Response Times

Automated systems allow sheets to be made available quickly when they are needed. This is particularly useful in production environments with continuous material requirements and just-in-time needs.

Improved Stock Management

Automated warehouse management systems provide real-time monitoring and tracking of sheet metal stocks. This enables better stock control and the timely reordering of material to avoid shortages.

Work Safety

Automation can also improve worker safety by reducing manual handling and transport of heavy sheets. This reduces the risk of injury to workers, and therefore the loss of manpower.


Automated sheet metal storage systems can be easily adapted to changing production requirements. They can handle different sheet sizes and types, which increases flexibility in production.

Data Management and Analysis

Automated systems collect data on warehouse activities, which can be used to optimize warehousing and predict future demand.

Reduced Costs

Although the initial cost of automated systems is higher, they can reduce overall costs in the long run by increasing efficiency, reducing waste, and lowering the need for manual labor.

Effective use of personnel

Manually moving and handling sheet metal, whether by forklift or crane, requires a significant amount of labor. Automation can make better use of skilled labor and help alleviate labor shortages.
