Worldwide News Eisenmann

Worldwide News Eisenmann provides electrified monorail system for one of China’s most popular beers The system engineering company Eisenmann, based in Böblingen/ Germany, is providing an electrified monorail system for the new Guangzhou Zhu Jiang Brewery Group production facilities, one of China’s largest beer producers. The system boasts a throughput rate of more than 600 pallets an hour and will link production facilities with the high-bay warehouse and the shipping facilities. Chinese intralogistics specialist Gangyu has been commissioned as the general contractor for the project. The project value lies within the ten million euro mark and production is due to start at the end of March 2015. “This project is a prime example of collaboration between general contractor and sub-supplier. In the run up to the project, Gangyu had already opted for a collaboration with us and hence, we were able to take part in meetings with the end customer at an early stage”, Sebastiano Sardo, conveyor systems sales manager, explains. “This enabled us to build up a certain level of trust and win over the end customer with our expertise. What’s more, we were able to identify the specific demands of Guangzhou Zhu Jiang Brewery Group as part of our visit on site and provide an individually adapted EMS solution.” This specific solution consists of an electrified monorail system with hangers featuring three drive wheels each, rather than the standard, two drive wheels. As a result, the system is able to carry payloads of up to 1,500 kg. Standard EMS are designed for maximum payloads of merely 1,200 kg and the loads at the Chinese brewery facilities lie up to ten percent above this value. The Chinese “Zhujiang Beer” is named after the region where it is from, the Pearl River Delta in the province of Guangzhou, in southern China. Consequently, the beer’s brand name translates to “Pearl River Beer” and it is among China’s top three of the most popular beers. 500 metre-long mega high-bay warehouse in Zhongwang, China For the Chinese Zhongwang Group, Vollert is currently designing and constructing three fully automated high-bay warehouses at the company’s rolling plant site in Tianjin, China. The largest warehouse measures 504 metres in length and provides space for a total of 1,500 aluminium coils across 150 rows on five separate levels. Two further high-bay warehouses, which are currently under construction, provide around 1,300 and 2,100 storage bays respectively. Altogether, these allow for a total capacity of over 100,000 tonnes of aluminium coils. As production buffers, the warehouses are integrated into a comprehensive material flow system – from the ingot melting stage all the way to the loading of the finished products. To this end, Vollert is supplying, among other things, ingot tilting stations, 14 automatic cranes, and manipulators with spans of up to 31.5 metres. In addition, the project scope also includes crane runways up to 500 metres in length, tunnel shuttles, driverless transport systems, stacker cranes and 15 blade lifter pairs. All the support systems move in the high-speed area at speeds of up to 4 metres per second. To enable the coils to be further processed as quickly as possible following the hot rolling process, Vollert is integrating an active individual position cooling system into the high-bay warehouse. After less than 50 hours, coils at a temperature of 350°C can be cooled down to such a level that they are ready for further processing. By doing so, the Zhongwang Group not only saves times but also storage capacity. Interroll wins flow storage system contract from Indonesia Interroll, based in Sant’Antonino/Switzerland, a supplier of key products and solutions for internal logistics, has been awarded a contract for a project in Indonesia. The order was placed by the confectionery manufacturer Lotte Indonesia and comprises of a flow storage system with a capacity of 3,896 pallets including an Interroll Pushback system. Lucky Jurista, PPIC Manager at Lotte Indonesia, explains that the high throughput speeds and the smaller space the system requires were factors contributing to a decision in favor of Interroll. “More and more international companies are establishing their Asian production facilities in Indonesia. As a specialist for intralogistics we strive to helping current, but also future customers, to grow on the Asian market by providing the products to match their plans for expansion”, Gan Wee Seng, Managing Director at Interroll Singapore elucidates. 8 f+h Intralogistics 4/2014
