Duci, founded in 1983, is headquartered in Chiuduno, in the province of Bergamo and is a leader in the global rubber seals industry. Over the years, Duci has specialized in the production of O-Rings and rubber technical details, establishing itself at the European level.
The company has grown and developed thanks to the competence, tenacity and resourcefulness of its people. The service and the excellent quality-price ratio have allowed constant and continuous growth, contributing to the creation of one of the most important companies in the sector.
Because of the rapid growth of daily shipments Duci found itself in the conditions of having to rethink the internal logistics of the warehouse. To find someone competent and professional to whom to entrust his project, Duci has “played at home” and turned to Automha, whose head office is only a few kilometers from that of Duci.
Automha shared a project with Duci that was immediately appreciated and perfectly responsive to the new needs for efficiency improvement in the movement of warehouse flows. The client’s need was to exploit a pre-existing, recently constructed building. Automha has approached this project starting from a careful analysis of the building conditions and above all of the operation of the Duci activity, in order to provide it with the most suitable solution. The choice fell on the installation of two miniload stacker cranes, called Booster. These machines guarantee efficient collection and storage of goods from storage locations, responding to the high handling needs required by Duci.
The plant is composed of two lanes, inside which the Booster machines move for the interlocking of the shelves of storage of the shelving, through the use of a combined telescopic fork. Depending on the size, the boxes can be stored at 4 or 6 depths. The warehouse occupies an area of 100 x 30 x h 12 m and interfaces with the outside on two distinct areas: the first, located on the ground floor, includes two pickinge bays refilling more than one line for direct loading from production; the second, placed on the first floor of the shed instead has only one pickinge bay refillinge as on the ground a bay for loading from production.
The warehouse is able to manage the storage of 60.000 loading units. All controlled by the AWM software designed by Automha.
Duci was very satisfied with the solution designed and implemented by Automha. The need was to transform its warehouse into a fundamental part of its supply chain, making it a basic element to reduce costs and increase the level of service. Thanks to the AWM software designed by Automha, all the operations are managed automatically, thus allowing to reduce the margins of error considerably and to speed up the storage practices. Moreover, thanks to this solution, the material is available at the same time both on a line and on the other allowing the shipment at any time of any type of article available.
“I recommend Automha for the availability and preparation that makes it able to assist the customer in every phase, from the design to the realization”, Eng. Mazza, Purchasing & Logistic Manager of Duci.
