Automated Guided Vehicles in operation at Orkla.

Increased efficiency and modernised production with help from Jungheinrich.

The Orkla Group needed a new transport and handling system at their Skælskør plant in Denmark that would speed up processes without compromising on quality. Jungheinrich installed Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV), creating a reliable and flawless system – without interrupting normal operations.

Challenges

  • New automated trucks required with capacity to work in mixed operational modes.
  • Variety of operations at plant required hand-picked trucks.
  • New system desired that did not need to alter existing production system or routes.
  • New operational system desired that allowed for future expansion possibilities.
  • New system needed to be installed whilst operations were in progress.

Solutions

  • Laser navigation installed that integrated into existing warehouse layout with no changes to existing systems.
  • Automatic Guided Vehicle (AGV) ERC stackers delivered, capable of mixed operation modes.
  • System and trucks implemented without interrupting normal operations.
  • Options to link packing stations to pallet wrappers thoroughly explored.
  • Personal protection systems installed to ensure safe operations.

Benefits

  • Normal warehouse operations continue uninterrupted.
  • AGVs ensure flexible and optimised production operations.
  • No operational downtime for installation of navigation system.
  • Minimal interruptions assured when installing future expansions.
  • State-of-the-art automation creates an efficient and modernised workplace.
