Distributor of Biomedical and Blood Products

Requirement

The European Distribution Centre for a leading American biomedical and blood products supplier needed to increase storage facilities but, most importantly, to increase dramatically picking speeds to meet rapid expansion.

Some products required refrigeration (up to 4°C) and many needed to be kept frozen (minus 20°C) to maintain their condition.

Stock control, shelf life, FIFO, constant and measurable environmental control are all essential for these high grade medical products.



Solution

Various room enclosures were installed to cater for the different temperature requirements, some clear for bulk storage of pallets or box loads and others with automatic computer controlled horizontal carousel units.

The carousel units were linked to the computer generated order picking lists so that they rotate behind insulated glass doors and indicate on external light trees which storage location and what quantity should be picked. Doors open for the minimum time so the internal environment is not affected and the product is packed and dispatched Europe-wide within minutes of the order being received. The system was entirely computer controlled from receipt of the order from the US to the product being unpacked at its location.

We designed and supplied enclosures, mezzanines, conveyors and equipment and worked with Whites Carousels of New Jersey to design and install the carousel systems. All the systems met the operational and capacity brief since installation in 1997 and we are now considering the next expansion phase.

Comments

Although not strictly a Clean Room, this installation illustrates our design and engineering abilities and is an excellent example of a very controlled environment.

The carousel systems are unique in that they operate continuously at minus 20 celsius.
