Power Electronics, which specialises in the development of equipment based on advanced power electronics, is a leader in the manufacture and installation of solar inverters for photovoltaic plants and converters for energy storage systems worldwide. It has trusted AR Racking, a reference company in the European market for storage systems, to equip the new warehouse at its facilities in Llíria (Valencia, Spain).
AR Racking -a company specialised in designing, manufacturing, and installing industrial storage systems for all types of loads- has installed an adjustable pallet racking system (AR PAL), a system that allows each pallet to be located quickly and provides direct and immediate access to the load. The system is designed to store pallets mechanically using forklifts. The surface area of the installation carried out by AR Racking in the warehouse exceeds 1,300 m2 and reaches a height of 10 metres. The AR PAL system installed can store a total of 2,625 pallets.
In addition, a Carton flow rack for manual picking has been installed, a system that allows high-density storage of boxes and light products, saving space and providing a better control of stock rotation. Three levels of wheel carrier tracks have been included in the lower part of the system to facilitate order preparation. The zone reaches 1,100 linear meters of volume storage for picking and has a capacity for 8,200 Euroboxes.
“One of the main advantages of AR Racking’s systems is that they can be combined to achieve a solution that is perfectly suited to the customer’s requirements. At the Power Electronics warehouse we have provided a system that fits the need for both pallet storage and the storage of smaller boxes thanks to the Carton flow rack, perfectly adapted for order preparation”. In addition, “the order preparation aisles are duly protected with approved electro-welded mesh, to contain possible falling loads”, explain Vicente Marín and Javier Miquel, project managers at AR Racking.
“With 28 branches and points of sales in almost 40 countries, Power Electronics’ service is based on immediacy, guaranteeing maximum efficiency and operability. We also find these features in the new warehouse: the systems installed enable us to control stock and locate products quickly and efficiently”, says Enrique García (Director of the Industrial Efficiency Department), and Salvador Climent (Head of Supply Chain Efficiency) at Power Electronics.
