This automated warehouse, with a lot of innovative characteristics, has a storage capacity of 13000 tons of paper, with a space allocation dynamic organisation and 9900 locations which can receive pallets of different measures and heights, up to a maximum amount of 20.700 pallets.
The pallets of finished goods are directly picked from the manufacturing centre and then they are identified, sorted and automatically conveyed by different handling systems through an overhead travelling crane running along 140 meters up to the automated warehouse constructed in self supporting structure.
Along this conveying system, we point out the operation of 10 RGVs – MonoRail Guided Vehicles that can transport 2 pallets at the same time, up to a maximum weight of 1300 kg.
In the automated warehouse building, five transelevators of 29 meters height adjust the handling system to the type of pallets to be conveyed and load the pallets in the respective location of the warehouse.
The transelevators also pick and deliver the pallets sorted by the management system to the outgoing automated system, through 5 automated vehicles, 2 automated picking systems and around 60 conveyors that route these pallets to an expedition area of 15 discharge accumulation lines from which the pallet carrier will unload the pallets and load them on a truck of one of the 8 loading docks or railway platform.
The system has an ingoing maximum capacity of 120 pallets/hour, ensuring at the same time a 250 pallets outgoing and is able to operate 24hours/day.
The automated warehouse management software controlling the warehouse stock rotation and processing orders providing from the Austrian Central room was developed with a high degree of integration and customisation.
