Interroll drives technology saves energy at Hermes Fulfilment

Interroll drives technology saves energy at Hermes Fulfilment

Hermes Fulfilment, an Otto Group company that manages all services along the supply chain for European distance dealers at its four own logistics centres, introduced a master plan on climate protection that involved replacing its conventional 400 volt technology with energy saving 24 volt drive technology from Interroll. Initial measurements have shown energy savings of about 25% thanks to the Interroll drive technology.

Michael Schekatz, head of the technical services department at Hermes Fulfilment and responsible for sustain-ability, is therefore extremely impressed: "We installed this technology in order to save energy. At the same time, however, we noticed in trials how quiet it is. This is a success we never really expected and are quite pleased about. Furthermore, we have found that maintenance has become much easier now."

The technical service department of Hermes Fulfilment in Haldensleben is upgrading the logistics centre step by step during operation. But only four hours per day are available to do this. Thanks to how easy it is to configure and wire the Interroll ConveyorControl system, it can be installed and put into operation very quickly.

A system driven by RollerDrive always has a decentralised structure. The drives are installed in all of the individual conveyor zones. This means they can be switched on or off separately. Movement throughout the entire conveyor takes place only when goods are actually transported with zeropressure.

Only those RollerDrives that are needed to transport the goods to be conveyed are actually driven. This offers enormous potential for energy savings and noise and wear reduction.
