Thistle Systems has used its Max the Cube principles to develop a bespoke shelving solution for a global semi-conductor company as part of an expansion to its Scottish manufacturing facility.
The client was looking to maximise the storage capacity within its main storage area whilst maximising accessibility and minimising picking times.
Thistle developed a solution which included 80 bays of shelving, combined with 6 bays of heavy duty long span, and a dedicated storage area for specialist heavy duty chrome Kitting Trolleys which are used to pick components for projects in the semi-conductor industry.
Thistle recommended changing the depth of the shelving to 500mm, introducing a longer span of shelving, incorporating some small components drawer storage and maximising the height of the area by using a 3.3 metre high shelving system with 10 shelves per bay to minimise the dead space between shelves. The end result was a shelving solution which offered higher density storage, increased capacity and improved accessibility within the minimum footprint possible.
