TOYOTA MATERIAL Handling and Interroll, have installed a powerful and efficient conveyor system for nautical equipment specialist, Imnasa in Spain. Core components of the new material-handling solution are the Modular Conveyor Platform (MCP), the RollerDrive EC 5000 and the MultiControl from Interroll.
The state-of-the-art system, which spans around 360m, automates the flow of goods between two buildings, increases productivity, and improves customer service as well as the working environment of the personnel deployed. The system was fully designed and installed by Toyota Material Handling.
To seamlessly integrate the different work processes within the already existing and new buildings, the two sites were connected by a 360m conveyor system in a tunnel. Using a zero-pressure-accumulation material-handling solution, goods are automatically routed between the picking area in the existing building via the respective packing stations to the shipment area in the new building.
A total of around 250 EC 5000 RollerDrive and 120 MultiControl from Interroll are used for the energy-saving transport of boxes and totes via driven roller and belt conveyors.
