Starbank’s Storage Retrieval System
Starbank’s latest investment is the FH6 Cut-To-Size Saw linked to the VS16 Board Storage Retrieval System. This investment has improved working practices and reduced the time involved in sorting and finding boards to cut. As boards can be stored in a ‘chaotic’ random order floor space has been optimised with the ability to store up to 2500 boards. The storage retrieval can feed both saws therefore reducing the manual handling involved and improving overall productivity.
As the software for the storage retrieval system understands what jobs are needed and in what order, the storage retrieval can independantly start to organise the boards within the holding area overnight to ensure that they are close at hand and in order for the next day’s jobs. This efficient process enables Starbank to more effectively get jobs out without the need for extra operators.
