The Italian company Ferretto Group has strengthened its presence in India by bagging an order from Siemens India to reorganise the storage and management of PCB components (printed circuits) at its Goa factory. Siemens, one of the world leaders in the sector of electronics, has selected Ferretto Group’s Vertimag EF vertical automatic storage system for this purpose.
Vertimag EF vertical automatic storage system makes it possible, on the one hand, to reduce the size of the storage area, making the most of the available height, and on the other to optimise picking times and inventory management.
More specifically, two Vertimag EFs were installed side-by-side at the Siemens plant in Goa, equipped with a touch screen monitor pc with WMS designed by the Ferretto Group and integrated with the company ERP and Virtual Tray Division for better management of component positioning inside trays. To optimise space, the metallic vertical structure is provided with shelves which house 1 m deep trays where load units of different sizes and weights can be stored for customised stock management.
“What makes Vertimag EF the choice of many companies is precisely its functionality and its ability, thanks to the internal design of Ferretto Group, to respond to the different needs of our partners. Siemens is a giant in the electronics industry and has a strong presence in India, an area in which we have been active since 2007. Thus, for us this collaboration is a new step towards internationalisation, which has been our focus for a number of years now,” stated Miguel Fabra, CEO of Ferretto Group.
With a tray surface area of almost 150 square meters, the two Vertimag EFs by Ferretto Group installed at the Siemens plant in Goa consolidate the storage space and improve the way in which products are stored and managed, ensuring shorter picking times, improved traceability, optimization of the storage volumes, as well as guaranteeing a real reduction in errors and risks for the operators.
