WesTrac using Dematic’s AutoStore

Dematic AutoStore

Dematic will provide its AutoStore solution to WesTrac, an equipment provider to construction, mining, and agricultural industries, which is automating operations at its DC in Tomago New South Wales (NSW).

The intelligent automated solutions provider says AutoStore is an automated storage, goods-to-person (GTP) picking and fulfilment solution, designed to maximise warehouse space and minimise manual labour.

It adds that when compared to a typical manual warehouse operation, AutoStore streamlines the process significantly, creating a highly efficient picking system – with one picker working at the equivalent of four to five pickers.

“Like many businesses, the pandemic created an unprecedented set of challenges for WesTrac as we worked to maintain high service levels to our customers across NSW and the ACT despite global supply chain delays and disruptions,” Danielle Bull, GM of Operations at WesTrac, says.

“The high level of productivity and redundancy we anticipate from the AutoStore solution will ensure our orders are fulfilled and delivered on time, with optimised movements and operator interactions, and the flexibility for the system to match our business growth,” she adds.

Dematic says AutoStore is a unique and scalable solution. With its grid, it can be easily expanded with minimal interruption and progressively filled with bins as storage demand grows.

“AutoStore is ideal for industries looking for an advanced, fully automated solution to maximise storage capacity and streamline warehouse picking operations,” Seth van Dijk, Business Development Manager at Dematic, says.

“AutoStore delivers the latest in warehouse automation technology while serving as one of the densest, small footprint storage systems on the market,” he adds.

He says the solution can be modified to deal with any potential future challenges.

Dematic says AutoStore is one of the most sustainable warehouse-picking solutions available with its robots using power regeneration technology to reduce energy consumption.

“Built to cater for a variety of business demands, whether it be upscaling for future growth, or gaining valuable insights into warehouse operations to deliver business-critical improvements, AutoStore is a solution designed for proactive planning, better productivity, and a self-sufficient warehouse,” Seth says.

“We are excited to see WesTrac reap the benefits of this system upon the project’s completion.”
