Mobilrot shelving furnishes the new GKN Driveline premises in Monguelfo
A COMPLETE SYSTEM FOR THE STORAGE OF MATERIALS IN VARIOUS AREAS OF THE WAREHOUSE, CONSISTING OF THREE SPEARHEADS OF OUR RACKING SYSTEMS. WITH FIXRACK PALLET RACKS, SPECIAL FIXRACKS AND PROCOSS MULTI-STOREY RACKS WE HAVE CREATED THE TECHNICAL EQUIPMENT FOR THE NEW GKN DRIVELINE PLANT IN MONGUELFO.
GKN Driveline is located in Bruneck, in the heart of the Puster Valley, and is one of the most high-tech and progressive companies in the region of Trentino Alto Adige. This large company employs more than 600 people at its headquarters in Brunico alone and is engaged in the production of all-wheel drive and electrical systems for the automotive industry. GKN Driveline in Brunico is the perfect description of an “international giant” and we at Mobilrot had the opportunity to furnish the new building in Monguelfo with our racking systems.
The technical furniture we have installed in the new GKN Driveline headquarters includes 3 different product lines, namely Fixrack pallet racks, Fixrack specials and Procoss multi-storey, installed in different areas of the building.
In the first area of the warehouse, in order to make the most of the available space, we have installed the Fixrack pallet racks. This special system stands up to 8 meters high, allowing us to store a large amount of material with a peak load capacity of 600kg. At the request of GKN Driveline, we made special modifications to the Fixrack pallet racks, adding closed shelves to the 2 standard beams in order to prevent material from falling and to guarantee perfect safety at the workplace.
In the warehouse area where GKN Driveline stores hazardous chemicals, we at Mobilrot opted for a special Fixrack, which has containment tanks that prevent any harmful substances from spilling onto the floor.
The breakers that form the shelves are positioned at a distance of 2 cm from each other and, in this way, any spillage of chemicals is collected very quickly inside the tank below. Thanks to this system, the work area is, once again, made perfectly safe and the warehouse floor maintains its integrity.
The last area we have furnished is the spare parts warehouse, where we at Mobilrot have installed a Procoss Multi-Storey with an integrated external platform. The latter has been positioned further out than the plant, like a sort of balcony, to facilitate mobility around the multi-storey shelving and facilitate the loading/unloading of materials. In order to make the plant complete in all its forms, we have also provided Depofix plastic containers to optimize the storage of components.
