Our automation and robotisation solutions have supported many companies of all sizes in a wide range of industries.
Increased volumes, diversification of preparation processes and the increased need for responsiveness are all operational challenges that, combined with quality requirements, require an efficient and adapted solution.
As a designer, manufacturer and integrator, our objective is to provide, no matter your context, a global response to your intralogistics challenges:
and quality of preparation
Guarantee the global traceability
and management of the activity
with an ever-increasing number of SKUs
the customer experience
Goods-to-person and goods-to-robot systems are especially suitable for logistic centres that have to combine high reactivity with high-level preparation quality. These compact and upgradeable systems enable significant preparation performance gains, a reduction in the picking storage surface area as well as in the associated operating costs.
The goods-to-person and goods-to-robot systems can be upgraded, in accordance with developments in the business, in a new or existing warehouse alongside other intralogistics processes.
All order and product flows are synchronised in preparation stations so that retrieval and delivery operations can be carried out.
Full packages are temporarily kept in the storage aisles before entering manual or automated palletisation stations depending on the departure times of the transporters and palletisation rules.
SPLIT-CASE PREPARATION AND PALLETISATION BUFFER
The prepared packages are stored in the storage aisles before being removed from stock to enter manual or automated palletisation stations.
In view of the wide range of order profiles and the significant disparities in the dimensions and rotation categories of the of the SKUs in inventory, the ideal split-case preparation solution must allow for a combination of different manual, automated or completely robotic processes.
Person-to-goods processes are particularly effective and suitable for high or very low turnover reference items as well as bulky products, and are quick to implement.
PREPARATION IN STATIONS
Semi-automated pick-and-pack process in which a line of conveyors transfers parcels from station to station, with each station corresponding to part of the inventory picking. The operators take items for one order at a time, thereby reducing the risk of error, from dynamic storage units, static shelves or pallet positions.
MANUAL ORDER-BASED PREPARATION
Fully manual pick-and-pack process involving trolleys, allowing for the preparation of 1 to n orders at the same time.
Pick-then-pack process involving collecting products from stock corresponding to n orders, sorting them one by one, as a single or repeated process, in units in put-to-light mode with high-speed sorters.
Automated system involving shuttles that restock dynamic storage units in preparation stations.
Numerous possibilities with radio-frequency terminals, voice solutions, preparation units, heads-up displays, LED displays and banners used in pick-to-light and put-to-light mode.
|Optimisation of preparation time by using the most suitable process for the order profiles and product rotation categories involved||Scalable solutions, from manual to highly automated processes, allowing for investment phasing||Optimised scheduling of activities depending on priority criteria and available resources|
The automation of the packaging process, which has traditionally been a manual process, creates productivity, operational reliability and improved overall responsiveness. At the same time, the perceived value of packaging is an essential element in the customer’s experience. Automation must, therefore, go hand in hand with specific responses in terms of protecting and securing parcels and adapting packaging sizes to the products ordered.
Parcels are formed automatically from flat cut-out sections: trays, cardboard boxes and PAC 600 cartons are then ready to be launched and associated with an order..
Products can be wedged in place for optimum protection during the transport phase, using heat-shrinkable film or by adding a cardboard wedge for single-component packaging..
ADAPTING PACKAGES TO THE VOLUME SHIPPED
The reduction of the height of parcels to correspond to the products that they contain significantly reduces the empty space transported and means that all sizes of orders can be handled.
DELIVERY OF DOCUMENTS
Picking notes, delivery notes, invoices, etc. are automatically delivered with every parcel dispatched.
As an alternative to taping or strapping parcels, the automatic application of fairing with pre-cut openings guarantees tamper-resistance and facilitates customer returns.
Automated pallet storage
The automated pallet storage solutions can be used either alongside an item picking solution solution to manage the reserve stock, or in their own right for pallet preparation and case picking solutions.
MAGMATIC technology, which can be used in environments at ambient, refrigerated and frozen temperatures, is an omnidirectional shuttle system that is both flexible and modular.
PREPARATION AND BUFFER PALLETS
The pallets are consolidated before supplying buffer zones upstream according to the departure times of the transporters. The pallet output is sequenced in order to comply with the expected loading order for a particular trailer.
The pallets are removed from stock in order to supply the palletisation stations, allowing for the creation of heterogeneous, multi-reference pallets from homogeneous, single-reference pallets.
Automated pallet storage after acceptance prior to supplying replenishment assignments intended for stock picking.
DEEP FREEZE WAREHOUSE
The system must be perfectly adapted to the specific constraints of deep freeze warehouses: structure of the building, compactness, temperature, humidity, etc.
Storage of raw materials, semi-finished and finished products in order to supply workstations, production lines and preparation stations.
