Lift Systems (TORNADO) - Svenska Bil, Sweden
Svenska Bil i Norden AB is an agent of domestic and imported cars and are associated with brands such as SAAB, Nissan, Opel, KIA, Chevrolet, Cadillac and Mitsubishi. With new models being launched every year there was a continuous demand for storage, so increasing their efficiency was a logical solution.
The company had recently moved to a new sales and service centre in Stockholm and were keen to invest in a highly efficient machine storage systems to meet the demand for quicker access to spare parts. But they had a problem, space was limited at their new premises.
The solution was to replace the old manual picking shelving systems with two Paternoster and one Tornado machines. This solution resulted in a space saving of 450m², reducing it from 600m² to 150 m². Plus there was a reduction of warehouse employees from 9 to 5. In addition a new small warehouse was built to store 4,000 tyres and we installed 18 mobiles with between 3 and 5 levels in each.
One Tornado Machine: Height 4500mm, 21 pallets 4000mm x 820 mm
Two Paternoster machines: IPN, height 4500mm, 90 shelves
Tyre storage: Capacity 4000 tyres, 18 mobiles with 13 double racks. Length 6220mm, height 2500mm, 188 sections.
