Founded in 1979, CERGY-VIS is the specialist in the distribution of hardware, bolts, screws etc. for individuals and professionals. CERGY-VIS now has three online stores (Cergy-Vis, Bricovis and Fix’N’Vis) and a physical store in Saint Ouen l’Aumône.
The need :
CERGY-VIS wishes to group the parts of orders prepared on 4 different points of the warehouse, to control them, repackage them and send them to their shipping areas. The customer also wants to reduce the movements of the preparers and thus obtain a better productivity. The customer needs to increase the number of orders prepared per day. The constraints are that the installation will take place during the opening hours of the store and order processing for online sites must continue to be assured.
The solution :
Parts of orders are prepared on 5 different points of the warehouse. These control parts are then sent via vertical conveyors to a carousel consisting of roller conveyors and transfer all located in height. When all the cartons composing a command will circulate on the carousel, these cartons will be sorted and evacuated. A roller conveyor and a vertical conveyor will route these boxes to the different control grouping stations. Orders can be controlled, grouped and packaged. Once the order boxes are circled and tagged manually, they will be directed via a new roller conveyor to their shipping area organized by carrier.
Benefits of the solution:
The mechanization of the site will allow CERGY-VIS to increase the number of orders prepared per day and thus be able to respond to its very strong growth. In addition, our solution will be silent and scalable.
The customer :
Founded in 1897, SAVERGLASS is the specialist manufacturer of high-end glass bottles. The modernisation of the historic site of Feuquières (60) makes it possible to better meet the growing demand of customers.
The need :
In order to improve the working conditions of the operators and increase productivity, SAVERGLASS wants to automate the transfer of boxes from control and packaging stations to the palletising area, the closure and automatic labelling of cartons.
The constraints are: the solution must be reliable because installed in a relatively hot and challenging environment, and working 24/7, 365 days/year.
In addition, the customer has little space and has important traffic requirements in the area where the system is installed. Finally, the solution must be installed without hindering or stopping production.
The solution :
At the exit of the production line, the glass vials are inspected by experts who package them in cartons which are then evacuated by vertical conveyors. Cartons continue to be transported up and over the arch exit belt, freeing up floor space. A last vertical conveyor moves the cartons down to an automatic scotch machine. The cartons are then labelled before joining their palletising area. TRANSITIC teams were flexible and responsive to minimise disruption to the production line.
Benefits of the solution :
SAVERGLASS personnel were immediately impressed by this robust, reliable, compact and innovative conveying solution that allows:
