Mecalux will automate the JC Valves warehouse to streamline storage and speed up order preparation

21 Sep 2016

JC Valves, a multinational company that specialises in the manufacture and sale of high quality industrial valves, will be set up with an installation with a capacity for close to 5,000 pallet in Sant Boi (Barcelona).

The automated warehouse will be composed of two 56 m long, 13 m high aisles, where 3,760 pallets of 800/1,000 x 1,200 mm and each a maximum weight of 1,000 kg will be housed. The racks, double-depth and composed of nine load levels, will be served by two twin-mast stacker cranes responsible for handling the goods. In addition to the automated warehouse, JC Valves will also have an 8 m high conventional warehouse in which 1,104 pallets will be stored and two, 12.5 m high, automated (Clasimat) vertical warehouses.

In the front of the automated warehouse, a circuit of conveyors will be installed with two picking stations to prepare orders and for the input and output of full pallets. In the provision, the Easy WMS warehouse management software by Mecalux will also be implemented, which allows the real-time identification and monitoring of the status of all goods.

JC Fábrica de Válvulas, SA, founded in 1968, offers their customers a comprehensive service, from technical advice on the choice of the appropriate valve, to the design and manufacture of custom valves for special service requirements.
