Logistica La Serenisima S.A. (LLSSA), a joint venture of Danone and Mastellone in Argentina, upgrades and expands its automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) in Buenos Aires to increase speed and throughput in its automated warehouse. In addition to adding a fourth storage/retrieval machine (SRM), software and conveyor controls were updated.
The new system, supplied by Westfalia Technologies Inc., was installed and integrated in 30 days and comprised of removing racks, installing a power bus, installing the SRM, revising conveyor controls, updating WMS, testing and re-installing the racks.
LLSSA’S original AS/RS was installed 11 years ago, and at that time was an ambitious project, involved placing three SRMs in two aisles. Each SRM handled two pallets at a time for maximum throughput. Integrated into the five level AS/RS are two lifts, three transfer cars for staging, pallet conveyors, pick-to-light, pick-to-light, case flow replenishment, each pick integration, re-palletizing and truck accumulation. Controlling and managing all the product flows and order processing is Westfalia’s pre-Savanna Warehouse Management Software.
