PeakLogix: semi-automatic storage of food supplements

Sector: Food & Beverage

Semi-automatic food supplements storage

Increased utilization and capacity for the nutritional supplement manufacturer.

The 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.

Services provided

  • 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.

The solution

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).

The results

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.
