Solution Integration

In the design and optimization of our Client’s warehousing and production operations, we respond to complex scenarios that require specialized solutions. 

 

The integration of intralogistics solutions, which complement the HUBMASTER® automatic system is another of our strengths. We offer turnkey implementations of complementary solutions such as:

  • Automatic guided vehicles for the transport into different areas.
  • Conveyors, which for pickup and drop (P&D) stations.
  • Put/Pick to Light (PTL) systems.
  • Palletizing Robotic Cells.
  • Warehouse Management Software (WMS)
  • Rack-Clad buildings where the racking and HUBMASTER® System act as support for the building.

Consulting services

Our experts at HUBMASTER® Storage & Handling Solutions are also specialists in engineering projects, supported by:

  • Multidisciplinary and multicultural team with proven experience in delivering successful international projects.
  • Knowledge of the global intralogistics market.
  • The latest know-how in Industry 4.0 and automation technologies.

Our commitment is centered around three pillars:

  1. Improve the profitability of your business by maximizing the efficiency of your storage operations.
  2. Provide a first-rate advisory service totally customized to your needs, including technical visits to sites, budgets, designs, and final proposals.
  3. Provide an excellence after-sales service with remote technical assistance for preventive and corrective maintenance, extended warranties, and spare parts programs.

Project Development

Procedures followed for the successful implementation of a storage automation project by HUBMASTER® are described as follows.

Data Collection

We collect comprehensive technical data through scheduled site visits or through customer-supplied data. The data collection process requires the following gatherings: 

  • Loads that are going to be handled and their dimensions.
  • Current material flows between processes and their throughputs.
  • The necessary storage capacity and future projections.
  • Condition of the existing facilities and future expansion plans.
  • Forecast growth and future challenges.

Intralogistics Systems Planning

While developing an in-depth knowledge of the requirements and needs of our customers, we always look for wholistic intralogistic solutions to optimize the processes in the facility.

  • In this phase we identify the product flows in the system and plan the necessary storage and handling systems to improve the processes for efficiency and the storage density.
  • We make use of the latest trends and technologies on the market for the best possible development of the solution.

Development of the Solution

The technical specifications for the solution are now defined:

  • The detailed distribution plans.
  • The integration of solutions into the building.
  • Interaction with existing facilities.
  • Dynamic analysis and simulations to visualize the proposed solution.

We also design the fire protection system and analyze the transfer of loads onto the flooring when required.

This all can be accompanied by a financial study of the return of the investment (ROI) based on discounted cash flow methodology, which compares the cost savings that would result from the proposed design, and provides main financial profitability ratios to assess the investment.

Implementation of the Project

During the implementation phase our engineering leadership will take care of the good progress of the project.

We identify and adapt the project documentation to meet the legal obligations required by the project and any market regulatory requirements.

We identify risks and produce an HSSE plan according to the specific requirements of the product and customer.

We establish a compliance follow up system via regular meetings and documentation during implementation.

During project implementation, we manage the delivery of materials, the assembly of the systems, the electrical and mechanical assembly of the material handling equipment and the installation of ancillary systems and the fire protection system.

Finally, performance tests are carried out followed by the commissioning of the facility. A period for training and handover is granted, which includes training for rapid troubleshooting of the systems.

Equipment Financing
