Partner Costo builds automatic warehouse for Intraplás
Portuguese company Consoveyo, represented in the Netherlands by system integrator Costo, continues to strengthen its position in the national territory by providing a fully automatic solution for Intraplás, producer of plastic laminates and packaging for the food industry.
The new automatic warehouse for finished product will be installed in the Lordelo industrial estate, Guimarães, and will have a capacity of approximately 14.400 pallet positions, being equipped with three 30-meter-high stacker cranes and capable of handling an estimated monthly output of 18,000 pallets.
Jorge Ferreira, Intraplás Manager, highlighted: "Our company is specialized in extrusion in the laminate production and packaging thermoforming for the food industry. The new warehouse’s operational optimization is another step for Intraplás’ continuous technological innovation, one of the main factors that distinguish the company and contribute to strengthening its position as leader in its sector of activity. Consoveyo, being a well-known international company in the field of industrial automation, was chosen as the partner for the development of our new automatic storage system."
Consoveyo's solution includes an Automatic Pallet Transport System equipped with two shuttle cars, which will link the production and shipping areas. In addition, the management of storage locations, orders and inventory and all automatic system movements will be controlled by the WMS/MFC (Warehouse Management System / Material Flow Control) software developed by Consoveyo.
"The tailor-made solution developed for this new project allows us to respond to our main goals, meaning greater utilization of the available space, reduction of operational times and optimization of human resource management involved in the process. The project is still in the execution phase, but the cooperation experience has been very positive, one of the main strengths being the proximity to the customer and the capability of adapting to our needs," concludes Jorge Ferreira from Intraplás.
The project is expected to be completed during the second quarter of 2018.
