AR Racking installs a 32-metre-high warehouse
23 April 2019
Leku-Ona Global Solutions S.L. has relied once again on AR Racking for its last expansion of its warehouse in Deba (northern Spain).
Leku-Ona is a company specialised in the manufacture of components related to automation in the fields of Pneumatics, Hydraulics, Machining, Laser Cutting, Tube Forming and Assembly. It is a reference in the industry and its success has led the company to carry out various expansions of its facilities.
In the last extension -completed last summer- the installation of a Clad Rack system with a single-stage stacker crane was carried out. The main characteristic of this system is that the shelving is part of the structure of the building. In this system, the racking not only supports the load of the stored goods, but also the load of the building envelope.
In this warehouse of 531m2, a storage area of 15,909m3 has been achieved due to an exceptional height of the 32-metre structure that is only possible in Clad Rack warehouses. The total capacity of the warehouse is 3,040 positions and in this last installation the loads are managed with a single-stage stacker crane, an automatic system that uses robotic equipment to handle loads.
This system has been developed by AR Racking in close collaboration with the logistics engineering of Ulma Handling Systems, the company responsible for supplying the automated mechanisms for the storage structure designed and developed by AR Racking.
For Alex Zabala, Leku-Ona’s Commercial Manager: “once again we have relied on a group of specialists who had already shown us, in the previous expansions, that with an improvement in logistics capacity, we can be more efficient and offer a better service to our clients".
AR Racking is part of the Arania Group, an industrial group of companies of great experience and scope, with a multi-sectoral activity based on the transformation of steel that dates back more than 75 years. AR Racking produces as standard all its racking in a pre-galvanised finish to ensure optimal storage even in extreme temperatures. Being part of a large steel group and having an in-depth knowledge of the composition and behaviour of materials give AR Racking high reliability when it comes to meeting delivery deadlines.
