Vonpar Refrescos

Modula warehouse management system for the food & beverage and large-scale distribution industry

Vonpar Refrescos is one of the most important Coca Cola bottlers in Brazil, with a production unit in Porto Alegre (RS) which supplies both the Rio Grande do Sul (RS) and Santa Catarina (SC) areas.

Storing bulky parts intended for format changes in the automatic vertical warehouses Modula

In the Vonpar Refrescos production site all Coca Cola products are bottled, with a continuous production of 24/7. The change of equipment and matrices in the bottle filling line is a routine activity of the production process.

In the traditional process the equipment and dies, which are heavy elements, were stored in racks. The operators had to manually load them on trolleys for transport, take them to the machine, change them and bring the replaced elements back to the shelving, with a great waste of time in finding and transporting the pieces, and also with a great physical effort of the operators themselves.

With the implementation of the Modula vertical warehouse with trolley (drawer extraction and transport trolley), the equipment and dies are stored very close to the production line, reducing the search and transport time. The trolley reduces the physical effort for the operators, thus improving the ergonomics of the equipment replacement process.
