ABOUT PTT LUBRICANTS
PTT is the biggest company in Thailand. PTT Lubricants is a subsidiary of PPT that produces automotive lubricants. The headquarters and main production site is located in an industrial park.
Due to being located in an industrial park, PPT Lubricants have a high investment cost when it comes to land. When PPT Lubricants decided to expand their warehouse, they wanted to utilize their space efficiently so PPT Lubricants looked for a solution that utilized height to store their goods. Moreover PPT Lubricants also stored various types of product in one facility therefore they needed a sorting system that could handle packages of various sizes and dimensions.
The system implemented at PPT Lubricants focused on utilizing the vertical storage capabilities of the ASRS system to it’s advantage to increase the ROI of the land. The system features 7 high bay stacker cranes each with the height of 32.5 meters, which was the tallest system we implemented. The system also has an auto sorting system utilizing roller conveyors, belt conveyors and switch sorters to handle products of different size and shape, without the need of sorter trays. To further enhance PPT Lubricant’s efficiency in product handling, the system integrates third party solutions such as Toyota’s AGV forklift and ABB’s arm robots to help reduce labor and human error.
