Faurecia Autositze GmbH

Faurecia operates worldwide as a supplier of automotive parts and is present in 34 countries with over 320 sites. The company ranks among world’s the ten biggest suppliers of automotive parts and designs, develops and produces automotive seating, emissions control technologies, interior systems and automotive exteriors. At its production site in Neuenstadt Faurecia Autositze GmbH manufactures the seats for various Audi models on a JIT basis.

Project aim

It was necessary to optimise the warehousing system and JIT provisioning. The seat covers were formerly buffered in a static storage location and removed manually in sequence. Due to the many different types of items removal was extremely complicated and prone to error. In order to improve storage and speedy JIT provisioning Dürkopp implemented an automatic seat cover warehouse with sequencing technology at Faurecia. Advantages achieved: space-saving storage, gentle handling, fully automatic provisioning, reduction of errors.

Solution

The warehouse was constructed on 2 levels. Each level is equipped with 7 storage tracks and the system has space for a total of approx. 1,500 Faurecia seat covers. Allocation of items and roll adapters takes place at a loading station. The transponder of the roll adapter is recorded and then allocated to the barcode of the seat cover. The storage conveyor distributes the seat covers to the individual buffer tracks automatically. Allocation is effected via the control system. The covers are passed from the downward tracks on to a retrieving conveyor according to the JIT call-offs.

Roll adapter

For many years now the roll adapter system has proved its strengths in the transportation and sorting of hanging garments. It is a reliable, efficient and flexible system made possible by a standardised adapter equipped with an RFID transponder. Loaded automatically with a hanger or fixed to a sorter bag, it moves via a rail system to various stations such as automatic storage, labelling stations, sequence sorters and packing stations.
