Automatic packaging warehouse installed in the food industry: efficiency, speed and control.
Basso Fedele and sons was founded in 1904 by Fedele Basso and it is at 4th generation with CEO Sabino Basso.
The site covers 12,500sqm and nowadays exports in 80 countries such as Europe, US, Canada, Australia, South Africa and Japan. In over one hundred years of olive oil production the company reached high levels of specialization in its key aspects. In order to grow and satisfy the market high demands, along with maintaining high quality standards, it becomes necessary to optimize the production and the supply chain.
Automha made an analysis of the plant in order to integrate the automation with the existing warehouse management systems. The works for this new automatic warehouse began in September 2011 and included three lines of action
Automatic storage containers
This warehouse is used for the storage of packaging such as bottles and cans. Automha created a self-supporting, 3-depth structure with a in-hole portion of the structure, in order to reach a height of 14 meters. This way, we were able to quintuple the stock. For the management of LU and refilling/picking operations, we used o1 stacker crane with AUTOSAT SUPERCAPACITOR satellite, with a handling of 25LU/hour input and output. The WMS software by Automha completed the perfect organization of each phase to the deliver the product.
Finished product warehouse
This solution includes 3 AUTOSATMOVER on 3 overlapped input lines. An automatic hoist takes the pallet to established quota. There are two output lines, each made of three overlapped conveyance sections. At the LU picking bays there is an operator with forklift, who carries the goods to the shipping area. Through the use of these machines and logistic solutions it is possible to achieve a movement of 75 unit loads per hour, both input and output.
The solution to connect the existing production lines (5 with a frequency of 40LU/hour) to the finished product warehouse was found by using a laser-guided ADV Fx.
The Automha plant for Basso company is officially tested on December and soon it reveals itself a great choice for the company. First of all the previous static packaging warehouse was demolished, liberating the area for production. The packaging warehouse was implemented going form a 100 SKU to a 600 SKU capacity with a 25 SKU/hr. The finished goods warehouse satisfied the client requests boasting a 75 SKU/hr movimentation and a 850 SKU capacity.
