Mitr Phol Group: Autosatmover automatic warehouse

Sector: Food & Beverage

The Mitr Phol Group is today the largest producer of sugar and bioenergy in Thailand and Asia. Founded as a small family-run company in the province of Ratchaburi, today it is considered the world’s fourth largest sugar producer, the largest in Thailand and the second largest in China, where it entered into a joint venture with East Asia Sugar.

Problem
The company’s continuous growth highlighted the limits of the warehouse located in Khon Kaen, which was unable to cope with the workload.

Mitr Phol considered the automation of its warehouse as the ideal solution for making the warehouse and order fulfilment process more efficient. The supplier chosen by Mitr Phol would therefore have to overcome two obstacles: first of all, the contained dimensions of the area identified for the construction of a new warehouse, and the constant humidity and temperatures of around 45 / 55°C, poorly tolerated by energy intensive systems.

Mitr Phol recognized Automha as the ideal partner for supporting it in this important investment.

Solution
Automha responded to Mitr Phol’s needs and constraints by proposing a automatic warehouse with Autosatmover, a new generation, fully automatic modular system that is able to position goods in multi-depth storage areas at high speeds and with maximum precision.

The warehouse constructed by Automha is 11.5 m high and guarantees a flow of 80 incoming pallets/hour and 120 outgoing pallets/hour, for a load capacity of 6,900 pallets and with a maximum weight of each loading unit of 1,600 kg.

A feature that distinguishes this system served by Autosatmover is the size of the Supercap, an on-board satellite controlled by a mother shuttle, intended for automatic pallet picking/depositing operations in the various storage channels. The Supercap was specially constructed in this case to hold the customer’s product, which has smaller dimensions than the standard size.

Advantages
The automatic warehouse Autosatmover enabled full optimization of the spaces while considerably reducing the management times of incoming and outgoing movements of goods in the warehouse, without however affecting volumes; increasing instead the capacity of the warehouse and achieving considerable energy savings.

In particular, this has been accomplished by using Supercap, the satellite vehicle, equipped with technology with Supercapacitor, which has enabled problems typical of systems powered by accumulators to be overcome; problems such as long charging times (in the case of satellites with integrated batteries) or the need for operators to change the accumulators (in the case of machines with removable power source).

The warehouse designed by Automha has therefore guaranteed a reduction in the costs of spare parts and power consumed without sacrificing production efficiency.
