Storage capacity and a swift picking system


Pellenc, a French farm equipment manufacturer, will equip its distribution center in Pertuis (France) with an automated warehouse for boxes by Mecalux that will supply its production lines. In doing so, the business will be able to store 3,500 pallets and 2,312 boxes with a 110 lb maximum unit weight.

The AS/RS for boxes will consist of a single aisle with two double-depth racks on both sides, measuring 55.8’ long and 20' high and divided into 17 levels. These racks will house two different box models: 16" x 23" x 9.5" and 16" x 23" x 4.7". Miniload Mecalux project Pellenc

Ein Miniload-Regalbediengerät nimmt die Ein- und Auslagerung der Ware vor. Es verfügt über ein Entnahmesystem für zwei Behälter und mit doppelter Tiefe, das zwei Behälter gleichzeitig handhaben und auf beiden Seiten des Ganges arbeiten kann.

A miniload stacker crane will be tasked with managing the inputs and outputs of the goods. It will include a double box, double-depth extraction system, capable of handling two boxes at once, either from one side of the aisle or the other.

Two picking stations will be enabled at one end of the racks. The preparation of orders will fulfill the “product-to-person” criteria, i.e., the stacker cranes will supply the operators with the goods needed to put each order together.
