AUTOMATION ACCORDING TO YOUR INDIVIDUAL REQUIREMENTS
In film logistics, the paths to the storage areas of partially used film rolls and the path to the rewinding machine (and back) make for a considerable cost item. Due to the large variety of types of film, it is nearly impossible to accommodate all respective rolls in compact rows on your shelf racks. Even if sorting with the aid of high-speed runners, considerable retrieval times remain, which certainly does not help generate added value.
In order to automate this retrieval and transport process, NEPATA GmbH has developed an automatic storage system for roll media. With it, the rolls are stored in a block warehouse in an extremely compact manner, sorted into certain areas according to diameter and stored vertically. A robotic arm picks up the individual rolls from above and transports them to a handover area, usually in the form of commissioning trolleys. The rolls required for the respective jobs are then positioned on the individual trolleys or combined there (in case of small jobs requiring few rolls).
Accordingly, the subsequent storage of partially used rolls follows. The supplied software fully integrates with the well-known NEPATA software ConvertPlus2, in which the production queues ensure that the pick-up of film rolls is initiated at an early stage.
Naturally, the control software optimizes the storage locations of frequently used films in order to reduce travel distances. The automatic storage system also notifies the user whenever a new roll of a certain material is needed, which can then also be set up at a handover station.
The automatic storage system can be customized with regards to size and scope in order to ideally suit the customer’s requirements. Further configurable parameters include the aspect ratio, maximum roll height, total capacity, and distribution of individual diameter ranges.
AUTOMATIC WAREHOUSE SYSTEM FOR ROLL MEDIA
The automatic storage system can be customized with regards to size and scope in order to ideally suit the customer’s requirements. Further configurable parameters include the aspect ratio, maximum roll height, total capacity, and distribution of individual diameter ranges as well as cycle times and the level of integration with ERP systems and ConvertPlus2.
