Agristo Netherlands and Egemin Automation have closed a multimillion contract for a major automatic deepfreeze silo warehouse. Reaching a staggering height of 40 meter, it will be the highest automatic warehouse in the Netherlands and the Benelux. The deepfreeze warehouse will provide space for approximately 25,600 euro pallets for the storage of deepfrozen fries at -25 °C. The project has started in the meatime and will be operational at the end of 2012.

Egemin Automation is now offering external energy recovery for automated warehouse systems. The residual energy of stacker cranes is fed back into the mains supply and used for other processes. This means that savings in stacker crane consumption of up to 20% can be achieved.

Agristo Netherlands and Egemin Automation have closed a multimillion contract for the design and construction of a major automatic warehouse. With a hight of 40 meter the warehouse will be the highest automatic warehouse ever built in The Netherlands and the Benelux.

Egemin will build the deepfreeze warehouse in a silo construction. This means all pallet racking is mounted first. In a next stage the skyscraper stacker cranes –eight in total– will be installed in between the racks. Next, all roof and wall plating is fixed to the racking. The impressive scope of the project includes eight 40-meter high pallet cranes, the conveyor systems and turntable equipment in the front zone of the warehouse and the silo construction. In addition, Egemin Automation also delivers all controls for the equipment and the higher level software for warehouse control and management (E’wcs and E’wms®).

Egemin Automation is now offering external energy recovery for automated warehouse systems. The residual energy of stacker cranes is fed back into the mains supply and used for other processes. Egemin is increasingly offering this new function as an option for its new warehouse projects.

The transformer, which makes energy recovery possible, is located on the control panel of pallet cranes, miniload cranes and aisle-switching cranes. When a stacker crane brakes or lowers, the residual energy is first used to continue an internal action. When the residual energy cannot be used any more, the transformer feeds it into its own mains supply to be used for other processes.

At the end of 2011, Egemin Automation closed a new AGV-contract with laminate flooring manufacturer Unilin, well-known for its Quick-Step flooring. The contract comprises the delivery and commissioning of three automated Still FMX trucks for storing laminate packs in block storage and in racks. At a later stage Egemin will be supplying 2 additional FLV1010/S laser-guided AGVs for the manual picking areas. Increased automation of the process allows for greater cost efficiency and more structure, leading to operational benefits.
