Since 1937, Canon has been providing innovative imaging products to customers around the world. Today, the company is a leading provider of digital imaging solutions for consumers, businesses and industry. Over the past 80 years, Canon has evolved into an international company that is active in markets such as Business Solutions, Consumer Imaging, Broadcast & Communications, Medical Systems and Industrial Products. Canon’s corporate philosophy is, in a nutshell, “Kyosei”. It forms the core of the value system. The term comes from the Japanese and means something like “living and working together for the common good.
Canon in Europe
Canon Europe was founded in 1957 and is one of the company’s three regional headquarters, generating about a quarter of Canon’s global sales annually. Canon Europe, based in London, UK, and Amsterdam, Netherlands, takes over regional sales and marketing activities for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Canon Europe and its group companies employ over 13,500 people in around 120 markets across the region.
Canon in Giessen
Canon Giessen GmbH is the first production site for office machines established by the Canon parent company outside Japan in 1972. The current role of Canon Giessen in the EMEA (European, Middle East & Africa) group is to provide service and support to the European and national sales companies. The core business is based on the 2R + strategy, i.e. Reuse, Recycling incl. repair, with particularly positive contributions to resource conservation, waste avoidance and CO2 emissions reduction. The remanufacturing and maintenance of copier systems and professional printing systems, the repair of high-quality service assemblies and optical products, is therefore a mainstay of the Canon Group’s sustainability strategies. With these recycling activities, a clear signal is given for an effective and efficient implementation of circular processes and end of life solutions, which mean an alternative for the traditional linear economic strategies. In order to perform this function of a central recycling center in Europe, modern logistics concepts are required that make it possible to react efficiently and flexibly to requirements and customer wishes. The quality and environmental management has been successfully certified for many years and is a guarantee for high-quality products and services, as well as the continuous improvements in the environmental performance of the company.
Canon in the neighborhood of TELOGS
At its site in Gießen, Canon has a total of eight stacker cranes from the manufacturer PSB. For this purpose, the intralogistics specialist TELOGS takes over the service and replacement of drives. The initial collaboration was reinvigorated by Canon’s participation in TELOGS Logistics Maintenance in 2017, a trade event regularly organized by TELOGS around intralogistics. The joint works were expanded. TELOGS now also took over for UVV testing and DGUV regulation 3 testing. The DGUV Regulation 3 test is a legally required test, but it is still considered little known even among experts. In doing so, it is a test that saves lives in the event of an emergency, as it is a matter of preventing occupational accidents and the associated personal injury and property damage. But that’s not all. DGUV Regulation 3 is also intended to ensure that malfunctions and production stoppages resulting in lost sales are avoided. With modern measuring equipment, such as the FLUKE “369 FC” leakage current clamp, TELOGS offers the possibility of testing logistics systems during operation. The measurement technology used allows the test specialists to detect and log residual currents by means of residual current measurement. The process should also make it easier to locate defective components or lines and replace them more quickly. The new measurement methods should even enable TELOGS employees to evaluate insulations without insulation resistance measurement and to create test reports about them.
TELOGS presents itself to intralogistics professionals as the service and RetroFit specialist with the latest technologies and extensive know-how. The latter is also to be demonstrated by the TELOGS Campus training facility, which is in great demand. By offering a wide range of specialized service and maintenance services, TELOGS aims to help international giants such as Canon ensure that intralogistics systems retain maximum safety and availability.
Timo Reitz, Manager Production Engineering & Facility Services at Canon, confirms the success: “The renewal of the drive and safety technology of our stacker cranes was implemented by our partner TELOGS very professionally and to our complete satisfaction. This has significantly increased the operational reliability of our stacker cranes.”
