Innovative Dutch co-engineering designOptimization of the warehouse
During wonderful long summer evenings, We love to keep the doors and windows open for fresh cooling and healthy ventilation. We also like to keep the insects outdoors, because they do a good job there. The most environmentally conscious and animal-friendly way to do this is with the screens from Unilux B.V., without chemical pesticides. Also in this sector, DM Wheel Systems knows how to contribute to a logistics solution.
Optimal use of available spaces
Unilux B.V., the largest screen manufacturer in the Benelux and our neighbor in Boxtel, was looking for a way to make optimal use of the available space of 15,000m². Innovation and improvement are a continuous process at Unilux. Raw materials that arrive in long lengths with a very high total weight are difficult for workers to handle. On the other hand, a large stock needed to be able to meet promised fast delivery times, especially during the high season.
In order to achieve a targeted result, it is important that the wheels meet the following specific requirements
- High load-bearing capacity
- Rail mounted
- Fixed castors
A lack of space is a common, annoying fact in many workshops. In addition to Unilux B.V.’s space issue, the weight of the stock trolleys could amount to 7 tons. Due to the many carts, the load-bearing capacity of the concrete floor had to be taken into account. The idea was to let these carts, despite the weight, rolled into position so that they were accessible and stock could be picked. In this way the carts could be placed closer together, saving a lot of space. The challenge for DM Wheel Systems was to ensure that these carts could roll up and down safely on rails.
Specific question and answer
The choice of a cast iron track wheel mounted in a steel-welded fork, was a bull's eye solution for Unilix and its warehouse problem. The saying "better a good neighbor than a distant friend" certainly applies here. This highlights the fact that every problem, no matter how specific, has an appropriate answer.
