Sukhoi has implemented a smart warehousing system in Novosibirsk
Tuesday, 25 May 2021

In a number of shops of the Novosibirsk Aviation Plant named after V.P. Chkalov, a branch of PJSC Sukhoi Company (part of PJSC UAC of Rostec State Corporation), have installed automated storage systems (ACS). Their use, due to the optimisation of warehouse space, will increase the size of the working space by 2.5 times.

"Installation of ACC is part of the process of modernisation of production of NAZ im. V.P. Chkalov and improvement of working conditions at the enterprise. The innovation, due to the optimal use of the working space of the shops, made it possible to solve the problem of lack of warehouse space, to increase the degree of preservation of workpieces, and therefore, ultimately, to improve the quality of our products. We consider this experience to be successful and plan to install similar equipment in the future on the territory of other facilities of the plant, "said Sergey Panasenko, director of NAZ im. V.P. Chkalov.

Thanks to the use of ACC in shop No. 43, it was possible to place 12,500 additional parts and significantly reduce the amount of time spent by employees of the enterprise in search of them. The ACC structure consists of three freight elevators with a height of 11.5 meters. "Previously, in order to take something off the shelf, workers had to climb a stepladder. Now the operator needs one keystroke for this. The shelf automatically goes down, the necessary part is supplied to a specialist for further assembly of the assembly," explained Ulyana Kopylova, Deputy Head of Shop No. 43 for Production Preparation.

For the workers of shop No. 72, we purchased sheet metal ACC. The installation, consisting of two racks, takes only 70 sq. m, and allows you to store 93 tons of metal. "The operator controls the process using a computer, lowering the cell down onto a special table, which then automatically moves out into the loading and unloading area. - said Anton Gramotin, Deputy Head of Shop # 72 for Production Preparation. - Thanks to the "smart" installation, we will be able to avoid defects that sometimes occur during transportation. This unit is presented at the plant in a single copy and has no analogues."
