Managing complexity is in TecnoFerrari’s DNA, as TecnoFerrari dealt with automation since 1973, following the growth and development of the ceramic industry since the very beginning to this day, gaining knowledge and experiences in an industrial sector that has identified in automation the key to success before others. Today TecnoFerrari can boast expertise and flexibility in its approach to storage systems and applies this valuable know-how and many other working areas as paper, food, beverage. The over 2,000 AGV systems installed with laser or inductive guidance vehicles allow designing and implementing the most suitable customized solution for the required application. TecnoFerrari can boast expertise and flexibility in its approach to storage systems and applies this valuable know-how to many other working areas.
We meet each customer’s specific needs with customized and dedicated solutions
There are many production processes that require one or more storage phases before the completion of the final product. In these cases TecnoFerrari’s system, based on AGV technology (or LGV according to the guidance system used), can connect the various production stages and manage the intermediate product parking, with extreme precision, improving performance and productivity. The range is completed by all the fixed loading, unloading and handling machines necessary for conveying the product until the end of the working cycles.
TecnoFerrari offers a fast track towards success to every company, regardless of their size, since automation means: maximum safety level for operators; completely automatic functioning; process control and optimization of the production cycle; time and working precision; perfect control over all process stage; cost reduction; ability to interface with other production technologies; data protection and collection; and also versatility of the system and limited working for track extensions, modifications; Reliability and sturdiness of the vehicle.
Key of the success: customized and innovative solutions
TecnoFerrari’s automatic vehicles are provided of laser or magnet guided automatic system, adaptable to every plant needs and to any kind of product.
For both systems the structure of the vehicle is the same, with many advantages for what concerns the maintenance and the spare parts. The automatic guide of the TGV is suitable to manage any type of pallets.
Change Battery system
Automatic battery change for continuous operation 24 hours per day without the need of man power for the change. When the battery charge is low the vehicle, when finished the mission, goes automatically to the battery charging station. Charge happens in few minutes. Models also exist in which re-charge takes place automatically in a partial re-charge station. In this case the vehicle dedicates all block times to the auto-recharge of the batteries, without operator intervention. It allows for continuous operation.
Automatic vehicles for heavy transport
TecnoFerrari’s automatic vehicles (TGV) are battery-powered shuttles that move automatically following a track of permanent magnets inserted into the floor. They allow a wide variety of applications, they are heavy duty designed and can transport up to 15,000 Kg. The four lifting device placed at corners of the shuttle can simply lift structures where jumbo rolls can be stored or structures with roller or chain conveyors. The structure is lifted, transported to the destination where is lowered on the floor pan. Structure can be left there waiting to be freed from the load. The shuttle without the structure can start a new mission. In case of the structure with conveyors they transfer the load to other conveyors. One application is the handling of pulp bales.
The vehicle have sophisticated and reliable active and passive system for continuous control of the surrounding space, to prevent accidental blows: these safety devices are virtual programmable laser bumper, mechanical bumper, side straps, sound and flashing signals.
TecnoFerrari, together with the companies of the A.Celli Group, were present at the last CIDPEX fair in Whuan (China). The two companies have presented the result of their precious collaboration, from a “smart factory” perspective, focused on the global integration of the Tissue, Paper and Nonwovens production machines, extended to offer integrated end-of-line solutions, which allow the management and the handling finished coils with the use of AGVs. TecnoFerrari and A.Celli, thanks to their recent successes in the Chinese market, are preparing to consolidate their international presence, participating in all the most important trade fairs in the sector.
