Weetabix ‘fuels the family’ with TGW technology

2012-15-02

To enable further expansion, The Weetabix Food Company decided to invest in a state of the art pallet warehouse. TGW was awarded the design and integration of this warehouse solution.

TGW designed a cost effective solution for Weetabix, where the pallets are conveyed and handled two pallets high, to optimise throughput and space. There are 22,000 pallet locations in the warehouse, serviced by three highly dynamic fully automatic TGW Magnus pallet handling cranes, supplying multiple pallet deep storage tubes with the TGW Muli satellite vehicles. This new solution allows for a performance of storing and retrieving approximately 200 loads per hour.

TGW deployed a load recovery access system, which allows safe access for this type of application, for qualified operators to enter the storage tubes to recover a failed or damaged load. The access system is also used in support of the maintenance and health and safety activity. "The design is very robust, we are seeing really good performance. I am pleased to say that thus far, we are very pleased with the investment that was made with TGW.”
