Mecalux will once again collaborate with Vins i Licors Grau, a company with extensive experience in the distribution of wines and spirits, with the installation of an automated miniload warehouse in its Palafrugell (Girona) centre. This solution will allow the company to store more than 900 boxes and speed up the preparation of online orders.
The 5 m high, 14 m long automated warehouse for boxes will consist of three single-depth aisles where a stacker crane will be tasked with executing the incoming and outgoing movements of the merchandise. The stacker crane will be connected to a conveyor circuit that will move the merchandise to the three picking stations enabled on one side of the warehouse. In addition, the conveyor circuit will link the automated warehouse with the central warehouse.
Mecalux will also furnish put-to-light racking in each of the picking stations. Each device will signal to the operator where the products extracted from the miniload boxes must be inserted.
With this solution, 918 boxes of 600 x 800 mm and a maximum weight of 100 kg each will be stored at Vins i Licors Grau. Concurrently, this will serve to expedite picking to fulfil the enormous number of incoming online orders smoothly.
Vins i Licors Grau is a renowned company dedicated to the distribution of wines and quality distilled beverages. Since its founding in 1977, with non-stop business growth, over the years it has succeeded in spearheading the sale of wines and liqueurs in the area.
