Business success story: innocent's blender (Netherlands)
innocent’s demand was to design a state-of-the-art factory, fully automated and integrated, with strong focus on performance, safety and carbon footprint reduction. E80 Group has been able to fully satisfy the requirements by offering a turnkey solution, contributing to develop one of the most advanced Smart Factory in the beverage sector. From raw and packaging materials to storage and shipping of the finished products: all is managed, handled and controlled by E80 via its unique and powerful SM.I.LE80 software platform. At the blender, 9 E80 automatic laser guided vehicles (LGVs) efficiently coordinate the distribution of all the ingredients into a 1500-pallets capacity store up to 8,8 meters high, which is a temperature-controlled warehouse that allows to conserve quality at a temperature that varies from 0° to 4°C. Our LGVs then bring the ingredients to the blending department according to the juice’s recipes.
