Escubedo has reached an agreement with the German company SSI Schaefer, one of the world’s leading suppliers of intralogistics products, in order to implement the use of Weasel® ARVs in its main headquarters in Riudellots de la Creu (Girona).
Weasel® automated guided vehicles are small but very powerful; they’re an agile and simple solution for transporting boxes and various types of materials weighing up to 35 kg. These small vehicles travel along an optical rail that’s installed quickly, easily and flexibly.
Escubedo will operate a total of 12 Weasel® ARVs to transport boxes from production areas to automated warehouses. The dispatch of material from the warehouse will also be automated and a robotic palletizer will place the boxes on pallets.
The pilot test has been successfully completed and we expect to have the system up and running by February 2019. Boxes will then travel automatically from Escubedo’s machines to the transport that will take our products to end customers.
