SKF Italia: implementing a new automated warehouse without losing a single day of production
SKF is a leading global company specializing in the production and sale of bearings, seals, mechatronics, lubrication systems and services. The head office in Italy is in Airasca (Turin), where the factory manufacturing products for the automotive industry operates and the warehouse gathering all Italian production for global distribution is located.
The most effective logistics solution
One project, many benefits:
- Replacement of the old stacker cranes with new Vectura cranes in only 12 months, a new record!
- The phased replacement of the stacker cranes did not affect the continuity of warehouse activities
- Better performance, ergonomics and safety, greater flexibility, reduced energy consumption and the ability to manage new types of packaging
From the early stages of the project, the collaboration with Swisslog steadily increased. We created a great team that has been by our side from design to implementation, helping us to evaluate the best investments to modernize our system and make it even more profitable.
