FLEXIBLE WAREHOUSE Back to list
Description: A brand new patented automation, 'PIERO', a flexible loading/parking/unloading warehouse which dispenses with the need of a costly forklift operator in the area where the panel working machine is, or parts of panels to be recycled are.
This robust platform ( 3.500 kg ) will load 5.000 kilos in several, flexible stations to solve the real 'bottleneck' of any machine inserted in small batches flexible working islands. The small batches- and just in time orders depend entirely on the efficiency of machine and forklift operators moving from the panels stockage to the working islands.
The forklift operator coming from the main panels warehouse or from the supplier can organize the supply in advance, by loading the 'PIERO' flexible stations in masked time (when the operator is working on the machine). It also can remove the rejects from some stations which are not immediately recyclable and leave - close to the operator - panels with different colour, thickness, size and material required to complete the most urgent flexible orders. It also allows the operator to change sequences according to demand (for example just in time orders networked to the machine PC ) by selecting one picking station and taking it to the machine loading/unloading height at the right time in a completely independent way.
The dimensions of 'PIERO' can be customized.
'PIERO' perfectly matches the rotating air flotation table- with Macmazza’s international patent - providing an alternative and intermediate solution between a front loading machine and a machine with rear loading platform. In fact the real gap between the two applications can be filled by removing the only 'bottleneck' that is the front handling, to invest in an automation which maximizes the efficiency working with reduced labour, optimum recycling of rejects reduced to a minimum with minimum effort.
