NGK Ceramics Polska builds a new production centre with an automated production warehouse

28 Apr 2016

Mecalux will equip the production warehouse in the new facility of NGK Ceramics Polska with single-deep racks, operated by stacker cranes. The new installation will be managed using the Warehouse Management Software developed by Mecalux – the Easy WMS.

The warehouse is intended for the storage of products used in the production of DPF filters for diesel engines.

The new production plant will also be equipped with automated guided vehicles (AGV) for the transport of load units between different production areas and the fully automated warehouse. The system has been designed in a way that will allow a future increase in the number of AGVs.

NGK Ceramics Polska Sp. z o.o. is a production plant, which forms part of the international group NGK Insulators Ltd., the world leader in the production of technological materials. The Polish branch was established in 2003. It specialises in the production of DPF – ceramic diesel particulate filters.
