Finished goods warehouse. Conveyor for processing 120 pallets per hour
Globino is one of the leading sausage and meat items producers in Ukraine, setting trends in the production of meat and sausage goods for the entire national market.
In addition to expanding its assortment, the company is implementing and modernising new production facilities in order to provide customers with high-quality food in a timely manner. Given the main characteristic of the finished goods warehouse – pallet storage – and the high work intensity seven days a week, the following targets were defined together with the customer:
- Achieve a transport capacity of 30 pallets per hour for downward movement and 30 per hour for upward movement;
- transport of pallets with finished goods weighing 1,000 kg up to a height of 5.5 m;
- realisation of a solution in which the loading and unloading of the pallets in the warehouse can take place simultaneously and without overlapping.
With the expansion of the plant and the addition of a second floor to the finished goods warehouse, the need arose for automated pallet transport from the first to the second floor and vice versa. To meet this need, we designed and implemented an automated conveyors. It consists of conveyors from our own production – chain, roller and vertical. The entire complex provides the necessary productivity and transport of pallets with finished goods weighing up to 1,000 kg up to a height of 5.5 m to the second floor of the finished goods warehouse.
Furthermore, the pallet reception and delivery had to be optimised during peak loads in the finished goods warehouse. To ensure that pallets are received and issued simultaneously, we installed two cantilever elevators with transporters. With a number of functions on the HMI panel, they can be set to run in parallel in one direction – both up and down. Our team has designed and programmed them so that the mode of operation changes automatically at the push of a button. Thanks to this adjustment, the operation of the finished goods warehouse can achieve an hourly capacity of 120 pallets up and down.
Installed equipment of own production for the finished goods warehouse:
- Chain conveyors for the transport of pallets;
- Roller conveyors for pallets;
- Cantilever elevator.
Technologies used in the automation of the finished goods warehouse:
- Automated system for pallet transport;
- Conveyor control system with user-friendly interface and HMI touch panel;
Results of the automation of the finished goods warehouse. Today, with the help of the implemented system complex, Globino’s finished goods warehouse has already transported more than 30,000 pallets in 6 months and operates 24/7. We would like to thank Globino for their trust and the first jointly implemented project.
