Can an entire manufacturing plant be relocated without interrupting delivery schedules? Steyr Powertrain, a fledgling company within the automotive sector, has shown how it can be done. agiplan gave a helping hand.
They were out of the starting-blocks! As part of the corporate restructuring plan within Steyr-Daimler-Puch Fahrzeugtechnik the components unit of the Austrian automotive supplier was to be spun off as a separate company. The new affiliate, manufacturer of drivetrains, engine components and axle modules, was christened Steyr Powertrain, or SPT for short. It would now have to stand – and indeed run – on its own two feet.
Here at Cooperativa Terremerse, a well-known manufacturer of animal feed, we once again proved that we are equal to just about any challenge. Taking the bull by the horns, we developed a cutting-edge dynamic storage solution by the name of „Wheel Flow“.
Until recently, Terremerse had relied on a conventional drive-in system to store a small range of products – in large volumes. However, the company was soon pursuing a more flexible strategy, with an extended product portfolio, smaller volumes and faster stock turnover. Too much for the drive-in storage system to handle.
Interroll to the rescue! In close co-operation with GS Scaffalature, a leading producer of storage systems, we integrated its state-of-the-art Wheel Flow technology into the existing storage system, thus creating additional space for Terremerse’s products. A consistent and tailor-made solution with minimal capital expenditure. Refreshingly different!
The operation is performed in the supine position with the upper arm in a blood-reducing cuff. The arm, washed as far as the shoulder, has only the elbow exposed.
In addition to the cable instruments, we use small Hohmann retractors and two small pointed repositioning forceps.
The slightly curved incision begins three finger-breadths above the epicondylus ulnaris and extends to the level of the joint gap. Directly on the lateral side of the bone the fascia is separated and the fracture exposed. In extra-articular avulsions the joint remains closed; in intra-articular fractures it is opened, lavaged, aspirated, and inspected (Fig. 108).

Biomarker Scientist (Lab Technician)
Assigned to the Cellular Biomarker Group, you will be responsible for conducting experiments and managing the unit’s extensive range of technical lab activities within this area. In particular, your duties will include developing and validating innovative cell-based assays, the focus being on flow cytometry, proliferation assays, receptor occupancy assays and other related technologies deployed for the purpose of measuring cellular biomarkers. Additionally, your work will extend to immuno-assays, with an emphasis on single ELISA and multiplex-based assays (Luminex, MSD, etc.). The role of Biomarker Scientist will also involve implementing validated biomarker assays in clinical and pre-clinical studies. At the same time, you will be expected to design, perform and oversee specific experiments with minimal supervision. In addition to providing input for data analysis and evaluation, you will be responsible for supervising the process of assay development and implementation at CROs. Finally, the role will involve compiling reports and statistical data.
Incorporating premium-quality materials and produced with the help of cutting-edge process technology, the highly robust and durable miniature drive boasts torque of up to 120 mNm while measuring just 32 mm in diameter and 72 mm in length.
Its exceptional performance is down to the advanced ironless stator coil, which is integral to the overall design. At a nominal voltage of between 12V and 48V, it delivers high torque and also ensures that the slope of the n/M curve remains extremely flat – while reducing the total weight of the DC-Micromotor to just 312 grams.
Conveying means storing, and storing means distributing. It’s the lifeblood of any intralogistics system. And because all three elements are inextricably linked, we offer an all-embracing range of products tailored to your requirements. Components, modules and systems – efficient, sustainable, certified.
Although Pushback has been designed as a dedicated LIFO system, it can also be used for buffer purposes, i.e. for the interim storage of goods later to be transferred to dynamic FIFO-based systems. In this case, the last batch to be stored within the Pushback system would subsequently become the first to be transferred to the dynamic storage area and the first to be available for picking. The perfect partnership for fast-moving goods in peak seasons.
