Mecalux will handle the automation of Papeterie de Mandeure's warehouse

14 Jul 2017

Mecalux will install an automated warehouse with a capacity for 7,300 pallets in the French company Papeterie de Mandeure, which belongs to the Clairefontaine Group and focuses on the production and distribution of paper products. Three AGVs and the Mecalux Easy warehouse management system will also be included in the supply.

The warehouse, set up with three aisles of double-depth racks, will measure 86 m long and 16.3 m high, occupying an area of approximately 1,600 m2. In each aisle, a stacker crane will circulate capable of moving pallets of 800 x 1,200 x 1,800 mm with a maximum unit weight of 750 kg.

Inflowing and outflowing merchandise from the warehouse will be carried out by means of conveyors, a transfer car and automatic guided vehicles (AGV), which will collect the pallets and deposit them on the warehouse input conveyors. The Mecalux Easy WMS will manage the new Papeterie de Mandeure warehouse.


The three double-depth stacker cranes, apart from optimising the open space to increase storage capacity, will provide the company with a number of advantages, among which being fully-automated and an increase in pallet loading and unloading speeds are worth mentioning.

Papeterie de Mandeure, founded in 1871, is part of the Clairefontaine Group and specialises in the production and distribution of paper for cards, tickets for events, packaging, etc. Committed to sustainable business practices, the company is continuously investing in this field to limit the environmental impact of its activities.
