Traditional enterprise factories generally have many production lines, and different production lines correspond to different materials. It is time-consuming and labour-intensive to rely on the human distribution. The management of warehouse material information could be more efficient, and the efficiency of query inventory and shipment could be higher, which affects production and shipment. Moreover, multiple production lines are running at the same time in many factories. Various tasks are triggered simultaneously, and man-machine mixing makes production management difficult. and it is necessary to dispatch matching models for cargo handling as the goods' size at different production line stations is different.
The enterprise is a professional environmental protection equipment manufacturer integrating R&D, production and sales, and one of the country's largest oil fume purification equipment suppliers. The original logistics design of the factory was very complex and labour-intensive. They want to use the intelligent logistics solution of Multiway with an autonomous forklift as the hardware carrier. The goal is to upgrade and optimize the handling mode of the factory and improve the efficiency of logistics turnover and the level of digitalization.
The project involves an electrical equipment area, bending area, punch parts area, finished product warehouse and more than a dozen production lines. Autonomous forklifts are applied to complete the transportation and distribution of materials such as punch parts, clean box products, and fan products from the line side warehouse to the production line.
SolutionIn response to the urgent production demand of enterprises, Multiway, a leading intelligent intralogistics solution provider, took on this challenge and launched its powerful hardware and software product. The hardware is a stacking unmanned forklift MW-SL14, and the software is the WMS warehouse management system and RCS fleet management system. It allows for efficient vehicle dispatching, flexible task delivery, and optimal path planning and opens up the entire information flow and equipment flow for effective management of material and inventory information.
The whole set of solutions allows for automatic and intelligent handling of the production line process and finished products. It solves the compatibility problem of more than 40 different vehicles on site, improves the production efficiency and logistics handling efficiency of the whole plant and solves the difficulty of recruiting and expensive labour for customers and other issues. Based on cost reduction and efficiency increase, automated, intelligent, informative, and transparent intelligent handling has been achieved.
