Materialflow computer, visualisation, control for pallet conveyor technique, container conveyor technique and rack feeder.
The HAMA GmbH & Co. KG is the leading company of the product ranges telecommunication, computer, photo, video and audio. Domestic and foreign customers will be supplied from the logistic centre in Monheim.
With the modernisation of the existing pallet conveyor technique and extension of the logistic centre the increase shall be covered for the next years. Aberle Automation received the assignment for the modernisation of the pallet conveyor technique and under the lead management TGW Transportgeräte GmbH the assignment for the delivery of the complete control engineering for the new development.
The integrated components
Below of the warehouse management system supplied by the customer the material flow computer coordinates and controls the material flow of the connected conveyor technique control and rack feeder control.
As an Oracle partner Aberle has provided the PMS-M under an Oracle database. The database as well as the PMSM processes run on a Window Cluster on a high available redundant server hardware. The plant visualisation
for the total plant has been constructed with a WinCC server with web navigator and 12 Client operating stations. The subordinated controls are implemented via a Siemens S7-400/300 assembly as well as Profibus-DP/ASI-Bus. The manual operating of the pallet conveyor technique has accomplished with help of pluggable Siemens OP17. The acquisition takes place via 60 scanner sick CLV430/431/450 Can bus which is connected at the network controller type MUX400.
Modernisation! The direct connection of the warehouse management computer to the S5-controls has been cancelled and the material flow controller was integrated. At 6 weekends the existing S5 controls have been displaced by a S7-400 control.
The new plant
The start of operation of the new plants has been realised on the integrated test system and adjusted to the productive server of the plant into the real system. The activation of the traction units in the new plants of the pallet conveyor technique and container conveyor technique has been accomplished with the remote motor starter of the company Moeller.
The 5 pallet rack operator devices accelerate with 1m/s2 at a speed of 4m/s2 and provide 27.800 storing positions double-deep.The 16 control panels for the automated small parts warehouse accerlate with 4m/s2 at a speed of 6m/s and provide 110.000 storing positions double-deep.
Advantages for the customer
The automatisation realised by the company Aberle Automation based on a universal total concept which produced a fast plant understanding and fast plant acceptance at the operators and maintenance staff. The realised total solution allows the Hama company an important and higher order management per diem. So, today the permanently increasing sales market at Hama has already taken its advantage.
