The logistics field offers a lot of potential
Besides the bar processing, welding and cleaning of profiles the internal logistics becomes more and more important. The optimisation of the product cycles and the automated linking of window- and glass elements are the purpose in the logistics section.
Urban individually plans and realises logistics installations and not only organises the window production but also offers a highlight such as the pre-sorting of glass panels in stand-still times (brake times of the machinist) whereas the processing times can get shortened again and cycle times can get reduced.
But optimisation is not only a matter of saving manpower. Instead production cycles should get optimised, distances reduced, production steps ideally linked and damages prevented.
Whereas high potential can be found in the work area after the welding and cleaning process, sashes, frames and glass need to get merged precisely accurate. This can only work with a sophisticated strategy and suitable equipment.
Urban offers a wide range of automated transportation belts, buffer shelves, sorting systems, loading- and unloading stations incl. the necessary work cycle optimisation control software.
Die The advantages of the automated glass sorting logistics of Urban are multifarious:
equired glass panels get provided automatically and ‚just in-time’. The infeed of the glass panels is effected by means of an automated transportation belt. Thanks to an order related pre-registration of the glass panels via scanner and barcode, the appropriate panel can get moved in and asked for. The manual searching of the correct panel is no longer necessary and this reduces damages such as scratches and glass breakage considerably. In addition to that the heavy glass panels no longer need to get transported with virility but the panel crane and different transportation system undertake this task. So the glass panels get sorted into different shelves. The number of shelves varies and can get extended at any time. In addition to that various logistics systems are available which allow an individual connection of the glass sorting unit to every existing PVC window production unit.
With glass sorting logistics of Urban not only the organisation and the logistics can get improved considerably but clearly more time can be saved too.
