Pedon Spa: automatic food warehouse

Sector: Food & Beverage

Automatic food warehouse: increase in space and reduce management times.

Problem
Founded in 1984, Pedon Spa is a company operating in the foodstuffs sector either with own-brand products either as private labels in the grocery chains. They are known in particular for a broad range of legumes, dried mushrooms and ingredients for dessert and bakery (also gluten free) sold all over the world. As company policy, the Pedon products are 100% NO GMO, without preservatives, additives and dyestuffs. All the production stages are carried under the control of the Quality Dept. in order to guarantee quality, safety and and an excellent-tasting products that contribute towards a nutritionally balanced diet.
These controls are also aimed at protecting the environment. The desire to maintain traceability of the whole chain has pushed Pedon to turn to Automha for the creation of an automatic warehouse for their packaging sector. The warehouse was previously placed close to the production area and was managed with a simple pallet rack shelving. The increasingly urgent need to expand the space of the production area, has led Pedon first to entrust a part of the packaging stock to an outside company, acquiring space, but losing the complete management of their codes, then to look for a completely new and automatic solution.

Solution
From here comes in Automha , which proposed a self-supporting warehouse at ambient temperature, adjoining and communicating with the existing structure.The warehouse created is composed of:

  • 1 input station for pallet
  • 1 output station for pallet
  • 1 picking/refilling bay equipped with a lifting platform for the pallet management of various heights
  • 1 shuttle to the ground for conveying pallets from 60  cycles combined/h
  • 2 stacker crane single column equipped with telescopic forks for double-deep storage; 57 cycles combined/h.

The pallets managed in the warehouse have 4 heights and 4 different weights.The storage capacity of the warehouse is 3300 pallet spaces, managed with FIFO logic. The selective type of stock made it almost mandatory choosing a solution with stacker crane, which is best suited to the presence of highly diversified references.

Advantages
The created solution allows today to internally manage all the deposit of the packaging and the respective codes; the internal handling practices develop in the direction goods towards operator and not the other way, allowing to significantly increase the efficiency and accuracy of the warehouse. The Automha project has fully respected the customer requirements, increasing the available space and shortening management time.
The Automha team is extremely satisfied with the collaboration with Pedon, company symbol of the Made in Italy quality.
