TwinTower profile storage system
PORTOS is a manufacturer of high quality window roller shutters. Intensive development of the company combined with large investment outlays has ensured the company one of the leading positions among Polish roller shutter manufacturers.
Searching for articles in a traditional storage can be difficult and time-consuming, which is why PORTOS decided to implement TwinTower automated profile storage system, which deliver goods directly to the operator and provide easy and fast access to a wide range of assortments. Short waiting times for items to be retrieved from the storage for further processing increase production efficiency.
We initially implemented 4 TwinTower storages, two equipped with 15 profile bin shelves and 4 truss shelves with a load capacity of 1500 kg, they measure 9150 mm and make full use of the storage space and two TwinTower measuring 6500 mm with 9 profile bin shelves and 4 truss shelves with a load capacity of 750 kg. TwinTower automated storage systems consist of two storage columns and a lift whose task is to move the shelves to a loading-unloading station where the articles are retrieved or replenished. Storage management is performed by means of WMS software with an operator panel equipped with a colour touch screen, ensuring full control over stock levels and material flow.
After 3 years of implementation, with the construction of a new production hall, Portos company decided to implement two more TwinTower automated storage systems for storing profiles, measuring 9150 mm, with 55 trussed shelves with a load capacity of 750 kg each. The TwinTower systems allowed a significant saving in storage space and a quick and easy access to the profiles.
