  • Open Roads

    '21/04/2015'

    President Barack Obama and Mexican President Felipe Calderón met in March to negotiate a solution to the border discrepancy affecting commercial transportation flow between both countries. Stipulations, made between the trucking industries of both countries in the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), were not implemented by the U.S and after a period of unrest, both presidents agreed that the solution needs to be based on a program of reciprocity, safety and efficiency of the system.

  • The Weakest Link

    '21/04/2015'

    In the last decade, numerous pandemics have walloped the logistics field. Preparing a supply chain to be flexible for any challenge the market bears is a multi-pronged strategy not only to subvert breaks in the chain, but also to weigh options between delivery speed and cost.Multi-sourcing one’s supply chain is not a new idea, and despite the assurance that disasters will eventually strike, many companies remain undecided on the best way to divide and hedge their suppliers.

  • Never make the Second Hand the First Option

    '20/04/2015'

    Smaller companies in the United States see the used marked as their first option when outlifting storage installations. While used racking might make sense if all components are in perfect condition, there is never guarantee of a used rack´s calculated strength. Apart from knowing in advance aspects of the rack such as what connector should be used, what is the maximum weight it was made up to resist, etc., aspects like the structural length of the components have changed over the years and should be taken into account. Nevertheless, among the advantages of buying used rack, we find that their price is right if they are in good condition; they are more readily available with shorter lead time, and better for the environment.

  • Smarter warehouses save energy and money

    '05/04/2015'

    The energy saving strategies used in automated storage mean lower electric bills and many solutions are simpler than one may think. Automatic warehouses save energy in many ways; from using efficient, lighter engines in the AS/RS systems, intelligent motion calculations and regenerative power supplies to the simplest of all energy saving methods: turning off the lights.

  • Inside the margin of success

  • The dueling promise of 3-D printing

    '24/03/2015'

    In a in a mass production-led world, those inside the material handling industry have thus far not felt the tug of urgency from additive manufacturing (AM). 3D printing is when 3D solid objects are made from a model on a computer. 3D printing is done by building up the object layer by layer. The trajectory of 3-D printing suggests that the manufacturing process will eventually create replacement parts for weapon systems, marine products and land and air vehicles.

  • Fueling Sales of Fuel Cells

    '22/03/2015'

    Fuel cells are leading the way in alternative energy innovations. American industries have started deploying fuel cell technology. Though it will almost certainly be automobiles that eventually bring fuel cells into the homes of average consumers, it has so far proven to be the warehousing and manufacturing industries bringing fuel cells to the automotive industry.Part of what makes lift trucks a more viable outlet for fuel cell technology is that lifts are smaller, carry less daily risk and are not produced in the same quantities as automobiles.

  • The Clouds Roll in

    '09/03/2015'

    With third-party computing, all actions are performed through the Internet on the host’s website and then saved to the third-party’s massive hard drive, rather than the user’s personal computer memory. The implementation of third-party computing (known as "the Cloud") in the material handling industry has developed in the form of warehouse management software. While clouds offer clients lower operating costs and increased availability of programs, the lack of privacy remains the biggest deterrent for customers weighing the pros and cons of cloud computing, apart from other items such as the delay in troubleshooting and the question of data ownership within the cloud. Nevertheless, alternative solutions as Software as a Service (SaaS) make the difference since they allow working in a shared server but it permits to store private information separately. Similarly, Interlake Mecalux offers a subset version of its EasyWMS, EasyWMS Autoinstall as a SaaS, that allows multiple warehouses to have a centralized point of connectivity and data storage, which gives the client the ability to access data from multiple warehouses, rather than simply the warehouse they are in.

  • Rising to the top

    '15/02/2015'

    Vertical lift modules (VLM) are incorporated as strategic implements that address specialized storage needs, reducing labor costs and optimizing warehouse floor space. Among the AS/RS modules produced by Interlake Mecalux, the Clasimat Vertical Lift Module is climbing to the top as the eminent member of the VLM family, taking advantage of a warehouse's vertical space. Among its advantages can be counted in the higher placement at a lower cost; the safety of its use and the reduction of personnel footprint thanks to the combination of EasyWMS + Clasimat, among other items. .

  • The Guiding Force Within

    '15/02/2015'

    The adoption of automated warehouses has sought to mitigate human-error factors. Automated systems require guidance in order to execute their functions precisely. The Mecalux Group’s Galileo control software may be the companion of the Automated Storage/Retrieval Systems (AS/RS), and its reliable presence helps get the job done. Within a Warehouse Control System (WCS), Galileo acts as a general coordinator, establishing a control hierarchy enabling AS/RS units to carry out their tasks according to the protocols established by the Warehouse Managing System (WMS). The WMS — such as the Mecalux Group’s Easy WMS — assigns a series of orders to Galileo, which helps it determine a take-off order and regulates the object task once they are in the air.

  • Painting to Protect

    '18/01/2015'

    To ensure long lasting protection of its products, Interlake Mecalux uses the most advanced methods of paint coating. Protecting the environment from the harmful effects of paint pollutants is also a concern for the company. To do so, Interlake Mecalux uses cataphoresis, a painting process based on electro-chemical technology which produces smaller amounts of volatile organic compounds than in other coating methods. Mecalux also uses powder coating and water soluble paints, an advanced method of painting used for a wide range of materials and products, very usable against corrosion and other damaging factors, and a very profitable and ecologic paint.

  • Fire Works

    '18/01/2015'

    The most important fire protection a warehouse can have is a well-designed, fully functioning and properly installed sprinkler system.Fire grows three times faster in vertically stored commodities than those stored horizontally. This makes extinguishing warehouse fires extremely challenging because they spread quickly. So, matching the right storage facility with the right fire prevention system can make the difference between scorch and soot. The wet pipe system, the Early Supression Fast Response (ESFR), the In-frack Fire Sprankler System, the Quell Fire Sprinkler System, the Dry Pipe Fire System and the Ecoogical Five systems´advantages and disadvantages are discussed.

  • High Efficiency in Low Temperatures

    '18/01/2015'

    The refrigerated logistics sector is increasingly looking for ways to optimize industrial freezer storage units. Designing or maximizing an automated refrigerated storage space relies heavily on the type of goods being stored, the weight that will go on the shelves, input/output flows and equipment already in use in the facility. Among other advantages, automating cold stores offer several advantages, such as: goods accessibility, personnel reductions, comfort and safety and integration of all warehouse systems through the Easy WMS.

  • Atlantic Rack: Triple Threat

    '11/01/2015'

    Atlantic Rack is a multi-million dollar warehouse equipment and supply distributor. that distinguishes more as a solutions company than a racking distributor. Mecalux was both the first and second company to extend Atlantic credit to Atlantic in its very beginings, and Atlantic positioned itself as a destination to which customers turned, not just as simple suppliers of rack, but as a source for strategic solutions to their specific needs. Incorporating old rack with new systems, orchestrating machines to fit with new rack, and detailing how quickly customers will see a ROI – among other procedures -customer satisfaction is the Atlantic´s goal.

  • The well-slotted warehouse

    '02/01/2015'

    A well-organized warehouse saves money in labor, space utilization and inventory control. The economic benefits of a well-sorted warehouse have helped warehouse owners and facility managers recognize slotting as an often misunderstood and overlooked building block of warehouse optimization.It is indeed a very important component of storage design, and although there is not a one-size-fits-all method, there are some basic rules and considerations that make the process easier and more effective. Apart from those rules, fully explained, an excellent software such as the Easy WMS is the best way to set up them all.

  • Seismic Spike

    '14/12/2014'

    The number of “big box” stores in the United States has increased dramatically. Besides, a rash in natural disasters such as earthquakes has boosted the demand for seismic resistant construction. Although there are disaster elements beyond our control, stricter building codes for spaces in a facility’s architectural designs, could mean the difference between life and death. In this sense, manufacturers such as Interlake Mecalux strive for the highest level of safety when designing a seismic resistant facility and take many elements into consideration.

  • Product Spotlight: Cantilevers

    '14/12/2014'

  • Nearshoring trends show offshoring

    '14/12/2014'

    Nearshoring, the act of maintaining production or IT in a country in close proximity to your own, minimizes some of the logistics and problems associated with offshoring, such as product quality and the enhanced risk of miscommunication. Inexpensive land and labor forces are not as lucrative as they were in the last decade, so companies are reconsidering to relocate their factories and logistics centers back to near their home.

  • Country Spotlight: Brazil

    '14/12/2014'

    While the United States and Europe have been reeling with a cumbersome economic recovery, the South America’s largest country has steadily become the eighth-largest economy in the world.The history of Mecalux in Brazil begins in 2005, when it incorporated its 290,500 square foot production plant in Sao Paulo to meet the challenges of a booming economy,and becoming one of the fastest growing industry leaders to the South American region. The warehouse solutions Mecalux provides run the gamut to a wide array of industries throughout the country: wholesale, food and beverage, textile, construction, pharmaceuticals, transport, international logistics operation services, etc.

  • Taking the Dents out of Bolted Rack

    '11/12/2014'

    Until 2001, the United States was an entirely pro-weld country, primarily because of the belief that welded steel is stronger, more reliable and costs less to install. The differences between welded and bolted racks range from their structure and connections to their safety, affordability and resistance. Welded structures are quicker to install and they are hard to transport to the warehouse, and any repair must be done safely and costs much more than repairing/replacing a bolted rack. These differences, among others, make bolted racks more attractive for the upcoming North-American warehouse industry.

  • Readers Between the Lines

    '11/12/2014'

    The introduction of high-speed, superior- accuracy image-based ID readers (IBR) has compelled the trend for business owners to consider transitioning their business toward a more scanner-ready operation. Image-based ID readers work by taking a picture of the entire image and reconstructing any damaged or unclear sections in an effort to override issues associated with unreadable barcodes (faded, scratched, uneven, badly printed, warped, etc...). Furthermore, the increasing capabilities of image-based ID readers are capturing more than just the attention of the materials handling industry.

  • Semi-automatic solutions

    '11/12/2014'

    Between 2000 and 2007 there was a period of widespread warehouse automation, but by 2008 the demand for automation decreased significantly, due to the financial crisis. Nowadays,we are seeing the first signs of recovery, instead of spending on full automation or sitting tight until the storm blows over, some warehouses are benefitting from creatively and systematically automating just portions of the facility.

  • QRC: The evolutionary barcode

    '11/12/2014'

    Like the more recognizable Universal Product Code (UPC) or bar code, QRCs are scannable images that hold information. QRCs are everywhere, but few recognize their use and even fewer recognize their potential to recast the material handling industry’s preferred method of scanning and tracking. The information available in a QRC is not only more robust and accurate than any other label code, but also shares more advantages than any other label code, even when has been slowly implemented in the US industry.

  • A turning point named crisis

    '11/12/2014'

    Interlake Mecalux has taken the global population’s crisis mindset as a decisive moment to grow and expand, to be a bigger and better rack manufacturer in the face of economic hardships by means of synergy and cooperation between each part of the company (engineering, manufacturing, customer service, sales and marketing). From having one foot on the door when selling the first rack to executing the order on time, everything counts towards providing an excellent and outstanding service.

  • ALAN: Wired For Relief

    '11/12/2014'

    The American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) is a not-for-profit organization that plays matchmaker between supply chain professionals and relief agencies in times of emergency. But it isn´t just an organization that looks for ladders and functioning trucks when the Red Cross is too swamped to do it themselves. It is one of the few organizations always preparing for disaster by wiring existing networks and tapping into groups or regions in which ALAN doesn’t have a strong presence.

  • Choosing the clean path

    '11/12/2014'

    Manufacturers address their hazardous waste byproducts in a way that enhances productivity while still complying with environmental regulation. Interlake Mecalux owns vital environmental devices that are helping it make great strides in the fight against industrial waste. To give an example, at the Sumter and Pontiac facilities in the South Carolina and Illinois respectively, an “all-in-one” and “worry-free” pretreatment solution was put into practice to reduce, not only the amount of effluent and environmental hazards, but also the number of stages required in a pretreatment process.
