The automatic warehouse for the storage of lapped pieces, built in the first half of the 2000s, has a strategic role within the company; the woven pieces are stored in the warehouse inside bins before the subsequent wet and dry finishing phases. This operation has two advantages:
- compact storage with space saving in the departments;
- the automatic sorting of the pieces placed in the storage bins in order to ensure the uniformity of the fabrics for the subsequent finishing processes.
After more than ten years of service, the warehouse system showed obsolescence of the automation part, due to some components no longer available on the market.
The revamping activity involved interventions at different levels: mechanical, automation and management.
The automation of the stacker crane and ground services has been completely updated using cutting-edge technologies in positioning techniques and communication with the management system. This solution, in addition to solving the obsolescence problems of the automation components, has made it possible to significantly improve operational performance by recovering the dead times of handling and positioning and reducing the communication times with the management system.
