Food Industry (packed, incl. cold chain and deep freeze logistic)
Merging materials or articles to fulfil orders is a key and labour-intensive process in production and distribution systems. Our broad product range allows industry-specific overall solutions for automated warehouses and distribution centres.
High customer requirements for readiness to deliver and availability call for new logistics concepts. Our conveyor and storage systems effectively implement logistics solutions for both simple and complex material flows. It is important to deliver the sensitive and perishable goods (already packaged) quickly and reliably. A high level of efficiency and process understanding is required here.
Modularly structured elements transport, sort, distribute, stack, store and pick the goods to be conveyed (trays, containers, unit loads, cardboard boxes, roll containers and pallets), in each case guaranteeing a solution adapted to the processes. A central and labor-intensive process in production and distribution systems is the merging of materials or articles for the execution of an order. Our wide range of products enables total solutions for automated warehouses and distribution centers in the food industry.
Frozen food has become a trend: today consumers buy increasingly convenience food or other frozen foods such as fish, vegetables and baked goods in the supermarket. Manufacturers and retailers have to adapt their structures and capacities continuously to this development. Even products from the chemical, pharmaceutical and health sector are kept because of their characteristics at certain temperatures during the entire supply chain.
Our conveying and storage systems are ideally suited for the automated storage and transport of temperature-controlled goods. The particular challenges associated with the distribution and storage of frozen goods are taken into consideration in all project phases. In the realisation phase as well in the implementing phase of the high-bay warehouse and corresponding conveyor technology the extreme temperature requirements will be taken into account.
The conveying systems for trays and unit loads mecom® effectively implements logistics solutions for both simple and complex material flows. Modularly structured elements transport, sort, distribute, stack, store and pick the goods to be conveyed, in each case guaranteeing process-oriented execution.
Roll containers are often used today when various items such as loose goods, packages, bags and containers are to be picked and delivered to respective branch locations. The roll containers are deposited onto the conveyor system either manually or by forklift and sent to an automatic interim storage unit.
With our combination conveyor system we can transport roll containers and pallets on the same system.
These standardised storage and stacker cranes are functional and economically efficient. Whether single- or double-masted, aisle-bound or aisle switchable version; the ideal device is available for any application.
