La Piamontesa maximises productivity with the automated Pallet Shuttle system

28 Nov 2016

Mecalux will build La Piamontesa, one of the first sausage manufacturers in Argentina, a 14 m high automated clad-rack warehouse with a storage capacity of over 2,000 pallets of 1,000 x 1,200 mm.

The warehouse will be composed of a single aisle where a stacker crane will circulate with a Pallet Shuttle. This shuttle is responsible for automatically moving the goods to their corresponding location. On both sides, two blocks of 7 m deep racks will be installed.

The inputs and outputs of the products will be carried out from the top floor and one side of the warehouse, by means of a conveyor circuit. On the bottom floor, a large area will be enabled where order picking will take place.

La Piamontesa has become one of the most well-known food companies in Argentina since it was founded in 1953. The most advanced technology on the market equips its industrial centre in the town of Brinkmann with the aim of producing superior quality products.
