LIPU – more capacity and safety

LIPU warehouse storage systems are designed for the storage of large steel, wood and composite plates, including thick plates and sheets. The modular storage system is hydraulically operated and consists of a selected number of frames and pivotable storage seats. LIPU stores plates and sheets in the vertical position, and the storage is loaded and unloaded while the selected storage seat is in the horizontal position. This means that each storage seat can be filled and emptied by means of a bridge crane or a forklift from four different directions: from both sides, from the front, and from above. Horizontal handling also significantly improves work safety.

More space and time

Thanks to the vertical storage solution, LIPU warehouse storage systems reduce the floor space requirement by as much as 80 percent. The minimal space requirement allows plates to be stored in close proximity to the processing station, which eliminates unnecessary transfer, impact damage and waste of time. Thanks to the use of separate storage seats, the correct plate is found immediately and accessed for processing without delay, since the content of a single storage seat can be scrolled in just 35 seconds. This means a significant improvement in production machine utilisation and productivity.

Everything can happen automatically

LIPU warehouse storage systems can be controlled manually or by an automation system. The storage system control may be connected by a cable or wireless contact. Automatic control uses a production program to identify each subsequently required plate. It then opens the correct storage seat, removes the plate and transfers it to the processing station with a crane. The system prepares itself automatically to transfer the next plate during processing.

The automation system can also be connected with the warehouse information system, which enables real-time monitoring of the warehouse situation. In addition, an automated LIPU system can use remote diagnostics, which speeds up the analysis of even the most exceptional malfunction situations.
