In order to optimise the storage space on the hall, we implemented six automated magazines TwinTower for the storage of PVC profiles. All storage systems have an automated loading-unloading station equipped with a safety scanner, fencing on three sides and Smart WMS software with a control panel. It allows inventory control and the process of moving shelves. The TwinTower makes full use of the storage space – it is 11.7 metres high, with a width of 8.5 metres and a depth of 6.25 metres. The entire system has 61 shelves with useful dimensions of 6800 x 1400 x 250 mm and a load capacity of 1000 kg per shelf. The shelves are arranged in two storage columns, between which there is a lift that transports the shelves to the loading and unloading station and the corresponding locations. Each shelf is equipped with 8 adjustable separators, which enable a more precise separation of the stored materials on one shelf.
The automated storage system is equipped with an loading-unloading station on the short side to facilitate the loading of profiles. The mobile station, which stops outside the storage space, runs on a specially developed track integrated in the warehouse floor. The implemented solution has allowed Eko-Okna to significantly improve material flow and storage process, making full use of the available space in the hall.
