The main task for KAPELOU was to ensure the efficient operation of the Pick-up Centre, which has an intensity of 14/7:
- speed up the work of the warehouse;
- automate the transportation of goods from the place of storage to the pick-up point;
- ensure careful and fast lifting of goods;
- facilitate the work of staff.
To help Epicenter K achieve its goals, KAPELOU specialists have developed a comprehensive turnkey solution for automating the Pick-up Centre. Through the modularity of conveyor systems manufactured by KAPELOU® and the skill of our engineers, we quickly and efficiently performed the installation, adjustment works of equipment and integration of the system with the WMS at the warehouse.
In the process of implementation, it was established:
- 38 meters of drive roller conveyor with a range of speeds from 0.2 to 1.0 m / s;
- 6 meters of non-driven roller conveyor with the manual drive;
- vertical conveyor lift with a maximum load of 35 kg.
We conducted special training and instruction for the staff, on how to work with the system. Also, we prepared all the necessary documentation, which includes technical passports, detailed instructions with all the rules of operation and service agreement. Moreover, we have selected the optimal set of spare parts. In addition, our service engineers provide comprehensive service support throughout the system life cycle. The first year is under warranty, and then under the support agreement.
Our specialists are always in touch and ready to help with any organizational and technical issues. Regular diagnostics and prevention make it possible to maintain the smooth operation of the conveyor system. And even in case of any breakdown, we will promptly repair the system and replace the necessary parts.
Thanks to a comprehensive automation solution from KAPELOU, the process of moving goods from the place of storage to the pick-up point has become three times faster, and the work of the warehouse more efficient.
Epicenter K is a reliable partner and a leading retailer of building materials in Ukraine. We are grateful for the partnership and the opportunity to work on such interesting and innovative projects.
