Prima Power saved floor space with Tornado Automated Storage Machines

Two wide Constructor Tornado storage machines were installed at the Prima Power factory. The Tornados work as storage for the production and dispatch.

Floor space was saved by replacing the fixed shelves with two Tornado Storage Machines and at the same time many picking locations ware combined to one at Prima Power factory. Thus the freed space could be used for production area.

The other Tornado is equipped with two openings as it operates as warehouse for factory and dispatch. The Storage machine has also in-out feeders for handling of heavy goods. And the other Tornado Automated Storage Machine is equipped with one opening and light position indicator. Both machines have approx. 2,500 items, and 250 rows are picked from one machine and 100 rows from the other per day.

With large tray (4000x820mm) the user gets 20 % more items in front of him comparing to normally tray sizes that are used on the market. In addition to more efficient picking also the inventory management and tidiness improved significantly. By centralizing the picking work also truck traffic declined, which increased warehouse safety.

"We chose the domestic Kasten Storage Machines because they are big and wide. The large tray can accommodate more products and thus two machines were enough for us. We save also in maintenance costs as there are less fetches, and with large tray the user gets more items in front of him, "says  Purchasing Manager Mika Passi.
