Smyczek takes first step towards automation of material logistics
In the project shown in the video, all opened reels (approx. 6,000 reels) are stored in Totech's automated storage system, the Dry Tower - as well as another 10,000 reels from the main warehouse, thus covering most of the production material requirements. After the reels are first unloaded, they are stacked on a trolley and then fed into the Dry Tower. The logging and storage process is fully automated from this point. On the retrieval side, Totech developed a completely new and unique solution: The rolls are stacked in an upright container. This ensures that when a batch is retrieved, every reel is accessible to the operator.
