FIFO Semi-Automatic Storage Case Study
FIFO Semi-Automatic Storage
FIFO Semi-Automatic Storage Project
The client needed to update its staging and storing of incoming ingredients arriving in super sacks or bags stacked on pallets and stored in 3 high drive-in racks, we introduced our FIFO Semi-Automatic Storage.
- Warehouse Design
- Equipment Solutions
- Integration & Automation
Utilization rates were approaching only 55%. The client wanted to improve the overall flow of materials, increase the storage capacity, and implement FIFO.
After a data assessment, PeakLogix partnered with Automha to design a solution centered around semi-automated deep aisle storage to increase overall storage capacity, improve the overall materials flow, and facilitate FIFO.
The solution enables storage management with no product contact using Automha’s PALLET RUNNER® system that adjusts for load weight, product overhang, and inconsistent placement to effectively move and store product.
The design accommodates 768 pallets measuring 48” D x 40” W across 45 faces with a capacity of 2,600 lbs., and 26 combined pallet moves per hour (19 inbound and 7 outbound).
Capacity was increased by more than 60%, using 614 of 768 available pallet spots, and the utilization rate reached 80%. The client was able to increase its realized capacity by more than 60%, using 614 of 768 available pallet positions or a utilization rate of nearly 80%.
In addition, the client is benefiting from a clear receiving dock, which facilitates the unloading of additional inventory that can now be ordered more efficiently.
Capacity was increased by more than 60% and utilization rate reached 80%
