Egemin Automation retrofits Samsonite warehouse
Operating from its headquarters in Belgium Samsonite is the worldwide leader in the travel products market. The Belgium site of Oudenaarde comprises both production and distribution facilities with three warehouses at present and a fourth still to come. Samsonite recently engaged Egemin Automation for upgrading the 8 26-meter high diverter driving pallet cranes in the B warehouse. Egemin Automation will replace the obsolete PLC's controlling the cranes with new Siemens S7 PLC's with E'car® control and higher-level E'car® Manager software. The modifications will be realised during the weekend in order to minimise disruptions in production and are planned for the end of this year. All modification works will be finalised during the first quarter of next year.
