Business success story: Molinos (Argentina)

E80 Group S.p.A. Hall: Hall 2 Stand: B2-42
In 2018 Molinos Río de la Plata, together with E80 Group, undertook the design and manufacturing of an automatic layer-picking system to make pallets with mixed products ready for shipment at its main distribution center in Buenos Aires. The project's main objective was to standardize industrial processes in order to minimize risks and costs while simultaneously improving sustainability. The aim was also to improve productivity, the quality of supplies, and customer service. We achieved all these objectives thanks to our company's know-how: the flexibility and the reliability of our universal layer depalletizing gripper allows it to manage 340 SKUs and 5 product families; the implementation of automated and integrated systems made it possible to improve safety, eliminate errors in the creation of shipping orders, reduce time to market and even permit direct deliveries to customers. E80 Group's consulting expertise proved fundamental in accurately managing the pre-engineering activities needed to run the project since the automatic layer-picking system could be implemented without stopping completely the distribution center's operations. The Buenos Aires plant delivers around 40% of the total volume sold by the company, so the system availability must be 100% guaranteed, as ensured by the preventive maintenance service offered by E80 Group, together with round-the-clock assistance, 365 days a year.
