La Briantina S.p.A. has been operating for over 60 years in the trade of objects of great utility in the daily housekeeping.
Starting from the traditional production brooms of the craft area in which the company was born, the assortment has adapted over time to market demands, opening the business to other product categories such as carpets for the home, household accessories and waxes scented and ornamental. Over the years, La Briantina has expanded its distribution chain in several European markets. In parallel with what was achieved in terms of sales, the search for sources of supply was characterized by the progressive expansion in terms of geography, from a purely national purchasing market, and the supply chain to the global market widened.
La Briantina has always wanted to be the point of reference to its customers for a service modeled on their needs, offering an extensive range of quality products guaranteed and becoming able to play the role of only reference interlocutor in the industry. Reconciling the high and diversified demand for products with the need for an efficient and fast service was starting to become a problem for La Briantina. For this reason it turned to Automha with which it designed a automatic warehouse for pallets in accordance with the picking warehouse designed to accommodate the stocks of products from various international suppliers.
The plant was built inside a new building, built adjacent to the existing warehouses and divided into two macro-areas: storage / warehouse and external operators / conveyor interface. The result obtained perfectly matches the needs of the customer with the potential of the 4.0 technology. The area used for loading / unloading pallets in the warehouse is managed by forklift, in interface with motorized roller conveyor systems. From here on, the whole process is computerized. In fact, after checking the barcode, the pallet advances and the conformity of the shape and weight is checked automatically. After verification, if the pallet is not compliant, it returns to the loading position for further checks by the operator, otherwise if everything proceeds well, it advances to the orthogonal transfer unit where it remains waiting to be taken by the stacker crane to be stored in the position defined by the AWM software, through the use of the BK Supercap satellite. The pick-up of the pallet for the unloading is always carried out by the satellite Supercap BK that picks it up from its position, then take it on board the stacker crane, from here you return to the position in interface with the orthogonal output driver and further downstream on the roller conveyors of exit.
The plant is composed as follows::
– Nr 1 bi-column stacker cranes
– Nr 1 Backup Supercap satellite on board;
– Nr 1 entrance bay;
– Nr 1 exit bay.
Everything is managed with the management software of Automha AWM in interface with the ERP of the customer. The automatic warehouse for pallets is able to store up to 2700 pallets and guarantees inside and outside flows of 24 hours.
The systems of storage and distribution of materials today are an integral part of the logistics system, and represent the link in the chain that connects producers and consumers.
The solution designed by Automha has allowed La Briantina to continue to provide its numerous and demanding customers with a quality and efficient service, with a considerable reduction in order management times. With the stacker crane, the inputs and outputs of the loads are executed by optimizing the movements (combined cycle). This increases the productivity of the plants while decreasing the use of resources for their operation. Currently the company occupies a covered area of 20,000 m² distributed in 4 real estate units capable of accommodating up to 18,000 pallets.
The customer was very satisfied with the solution proposed by Automha and the profuse availability of all.
