Caviro S.C.A: automatic warehouse for beverages

Sector: Food & Beverage

Automatic warehouse for beverages: Automha’s solution.

Automha’s partnerships with major brands in the beverage field continue and have led to the creation of an important project for Caviro S.C.A, a leader in the Italian wine market and, for several years, projected increasing internationalization.

Problem

The company’s significant growth is what has led to its collaboration with Automha, an enterprise that has always stood out for its attention to customer needs and capacity for customization. The intense production and the speed of order fulfillment had made the previous semi-automatic warehouse inadequate to the ever-increasing needs of Caviro, which saw the idea of an automatic warehouse as the ideal solution to everyday problems. In addition to this, the internationalization process had brought to light the difficulty of the old system to manage diversified pallets according to the customs of the countries to which the shipments are addressed. The company must manage 7 different types of load units, intended for specific customers or specific geographical areas.

Solution

The best solution presented to the leading company in the wine sector is that of AUTOMHA, which has studied a specific project for the complex needs of the sector: maximum precision, speed in order and storage, diversification of the load units.

The project for the realization of the automatic warehouse for beverages proposed includes:
2 bi-column stacker cranes with satellites on board, designed for multi-depth goods storage. The two machines move along 75-meter lanes and serve 6-level articulated shelving. A third lane for the insertion of an additional stacker crane has already been prepared in observation of the client company’s constant growth.
2 Captive Backup Supercap satellites on board: these are satellites designed by Automha to manage warehouses with FIFO logic; in addition to the supercapacitor, they possess a lithium battery of 10 Ah, useful for powering the vehicle while waiting for the mother machine. The presence of this battery guarantees maximum safety in case of maintenance or unforeseen events and is in fact a safe level PL = D technology
1 RUSHMOVER circuit with 4 shuttles inserted in the loop. This is a new technology launched by Automha in 2017, an evolution of traditional transport wagon loops; RUSHMOVER can communicate distant parts of a logistic system and trace articulated and flexible routes even over long distances. However, what made RUSHMOVER the best possible choice for Caviro is its ability to bend in any direction and, therefore, to adapt perfectly to the pre-existing structure of the warehouse. The T-shaped structure designed by the loop is served by a bay of incoming goods coming from production, an exit bay to the area of order fulfillment, and two entry / exit bays from the storage lanes.
– 14 gravity roller conveyors that connect the RUSHMOVER system with the goods exit bays to the order fulfillment area
– 2 AGVs that automatically transport the load units from production to the input bay in the loop and 8 AGVs from the output bays to the order fulfillment area.

Advantages

The system created by Automha allows for an extreme speed in the management of storage activities and for keeping track of any movement of the load units, signaling production, entry, and exit dates. The Automha warehouse is also able to manage all 7 different types of loading units managed by Caviro, keeping the optimization of storage space and time extremely high; in fact, the system guarantees 36.6 single cycles / h and 21 combined cycles / h.

The attention that Automha has paid to customer needs and their preparation to create innovative, highly technological, and engineered solutions have allowed Caviro to fully optimize the management of their new fully automatic warehouse.
