Conbipel

The Italian clothing company Conbipel is Italy’s market leader in the sector of leather clothing. Its headquarters in Cocconato d’Asti is home to its administration, a factory outlet store and one of the most modern central warehouses in Europe. Today Conbipel is one of the largest manufacturers and retailers of clothing in Italy with a range that includes clothing for men, women and children.

Project aim

Increasing demand made it necessary to build a new distribution centre. Transport and distribution was to be effected either manually or automatically depending on the area of activity.

Solution

Conbipel decided on a trolley-less system that would cover its logistic needs ideally. The clothing is removed directly from the HGV via a telescopic conveyor located in the incoming goods area and hung onto a fence conveyor which moves the goods to the automatic incoming goods control equipped with barcode readers. The incoming goods buffer is designed as a manual slick rail system. In order to transport the goods into the warehouse blocks of goods measuring up to 4 meters in length are identified by means of control labels, read off by hand scanners and then pushed onto a fence conveyor that supplies the warehouse. A barcode scanner is used to allocate the articles to storage places in the high-bay warehouse. The employee is guided along the optimum path via RF terminals during picking. The picked articles are allocated via barcode scanner to the control label of the stock removal order. This completes the first step of the 2-stage pricking system.

The pre-picked garments are now moved to the batch buffer. Here the garments are separated and passed on to the shop sorter so they can be distributed to the individual branches. Each sorter discharging unit corresponds to a specific branch. Picking is completed here. The goods are put into interim storage in the outgoing goods warehouse until they are needed for dispatch by HGV. When the HGV arrives the garments are removed from the outgoing goods warehouse and conveyed directly into the HGV via a telescopic conveyor.

Project features

Solution implemented

Trolleyless-system

Our aim had been to develop an automatic conveyor and sorting system for hanging garments that could be managed without the need for any additional goods carriers, one that could transport single items as well as blocks of goods of several meters in length, would require very little maintenance and not need a buffer for empty trolleys. At the same time it would have to meet the demands of our customers for high productivity, throughput rates and sorting performance.
