An innovative automated warehouse in the precision engineering industry
The company with headquarters in Brendola is not exclusively specialized in providing in a range of solutions for precision mechanics for every need, but is ready to give concrete shape to ideas and projects of its customers by providing customized products. He began to imagine a new warehouse and consequently a supply chain totally restyling in 2006. On one side they needed to increase the storage volume by replacing a traditional warehouse already saturated, on the other hand that wanted to introduce an automation solution that can integrate added value throughout the supply chain also benefit the end customer.
Automha realized a Booster automatic warehouse interlocked by stacker crane which provides the handing of drawers for the storage of small parts, with a capacity of more than 4,800 locations, equal to more than 240 tons of goods. Input and picking bays placed on more levels allow the taking of goods but also to perform any finishing operations, assembly and quality control.
The Vitesse headquarter develops around the self-supporting warehouse, one that becomes the center of all activities. Customer service is critical to Vitesse and so is the ability of a higher performance in a very competitive industry. Therefore, the immediate response and quality of service were the top themes on which Automha built its solution. These specific requirements have led to the study of different picking/refilling bays in terms of mechanical structure, with accumulation for levies to sequentially dial customer orders, to drawer extraction for picking on high rotation coded managed by a display. The bays are allocated on two different levels. The ground floor is focused on the sampling operations for the handling of customer orders: there we designed two recirculating bays and 3 display-managed picking areas with quick drawer extractors for a total of 15 positions. On the first floor, where quality control and small operations are performed, we provided – in addition to the classic in/out bays – 12 drawer picking stations.
The automation adopted has generated important savings i terms of space, but also introduced a completely different way of working, more flexible and precise, with better traceability of flows and processe. “It is a smart warehouse that allows us to have at all times an accurate pictures of stocks and ongoing processes. Inanition evolves over time based on the activity carried out. According to the rotations of the references are self-organizing so as to allocate the goods in the most efficient as possible and thereby reducing time and consumption”
