KLINGSPOR, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-quality abrasive products, was quickly outgrowing its manufacturing and distribution center in North Carolina. A planned expansion was an ideal time to bring automation into the facility. 

KLINGSPOR adds CarryPick automation to manage expanding inventory

Watch KLINGSPOR executives explain why Swisslog’s CarryPick mobile storage and picking system was the ideal choice. The solution has increased productivity, reduced travel time for pickers and gotten employees excited about automation. 

New employees now reach their productivity goals in a week, rather than several months.

CarryPick eliminates the need for employees to learn the locations of products within the warehouse.
Working with Swisslog, KLINGSPOR deployed 16 CarryPick AGVs supporting 962 storage racks, two pick stations and one replenishment station. Swisslog’s SynQ CarryPick Director was integrated with KLINGSPOR’s warehouse management system for automation control.


CarryPick has a number of advantages for a company like KLINGSPOR. It can be deployed in an existing facility without modifications, offers exceptional scalability for future growth and can provide the continuous reliability the business needs. If a robot has to be taken off-line for service, the remaining robots automatically compensate for the missing robot to keep orders flowing.

Thanks to CarryPick we were able to reduce our inventory errors by 50%
