Fibrisol's warehouse contains state of the art blending and research and development facilities, they had recently installed the electronic wire guidance system. The electronic wire guidance system is available from Electronic Wire Guidance Australasia .
The electronic wire guidance system installed at the Fibrisol premises had increased productivity. Fibrisol went from an 800 pallet warehouse to a 2500 pallet warehouse in a smaller space. The electronic wire guidance system has improved Fibrisol's productivity one hundred fold. They went from having 12 guys to 3 with an increased amount of stock. Everything ran much better. Fibrisol have a lot more control of the stock and better organisation after getting installed the electronic wire guidance system.
Fibrisol opted for a high rise high density racking system with turret trucks. Previously, with conventional reach forklifts and racking, the warehouse staff could only achieve a through-put of 12-15 pallets per cycle. With the electronic wire guidance system the through-put has been increased to 30-40 pallets per cycle. Turret trucks lift to 10m to 12m in height, creating more storage space within the same warehouse footprint using high rise racking.
The electronic wire guidance system has allowed Fibrisol to achieve a 200-300% gain in productivity, and a reduction in staff resulting in savings of between $60,000 and $80,000 per staff member per year.
Following are the benefits of installing high rise high density warehousing with electronic wire guidance system include:
- Maximise usable space
- Increase operator productivity
- Achieve higher storage densities
- Decrease damage
- Decrease cleaning costs
- Improve safety for operators, pedestrians and other vehicles
- Reduce operator fatigue
