Rocla AGV Solutions for paper industry

Mitsubishi Logisnext Europe has a long history and strong expertise in offering high-quality Rocla AGV Solutions specifically designed for the needs of the paper industry. The in-house transportation and warehousing of paper rolls, pallets of sheeted products and pulp bales are 24/7 operations, where automated logistics technology can offer great opportunities for increased efficiency and safety.

Bottlenecks in optimal efficiency: How to avoid them with the help of AGVs?

Even with the best warehouse management systems in place, manually operated forklift transportation is still a bottleneck to optimum efficiency:

  • Rolls and pallets are lost or misplaced
  • Incorrect rolls delivered to converting machines
  • Careless forklift operations causing damage to both product and equipment
  • Falling rolls and pallets due to improper or faulty stacking
  • Inability to provide cost effective 24/7 internal transport expertise

Implementation of an AGV fleet can have immediate bottom line advantages:

  • No more lost or misplaced products
  • Increased converting machine up-time with accurate and timely delivery of rolls
  • No machine or product damage from manual truck impacts
  • AGVs handle products gently and predictably reducing waste
  • Efficiency of operations through reliable on-time delivery
  • Improved housekeeping functions and lower inventory costs
  • Increased safety with collision avoidance capabilities
  • AGVs eliminate access issues created by conveyors or cranes
  • AGV solutions are flexible to changing production and product handling requirements
  • AGV system total costs of ownership are very predictable
  • AGV system can be implemented without production stops
