Dynamic – using nature to move loads and the best: paying nothing for it
You know that classic scene of the apple falling on Newton’s head or the black holes scattered across the galaxies that don’t let the light escape, so dense. Yeah, it all involves the force of gravity. Speaking like that, it seems like something exclusive to theoretical physics.
But did you know that gravity – yes, the same force that keeps us “stuck” to the earth – can impact business and increase profits?
For example, a cargo handling system with zero cost in relation to electricity. Not only is it possible, it already exists and is available on the market! Dynamic is developed by Águia Sistemas and harnesses exactly the gravitational force to make pallets slide on rollers. Simple, efficient, sustainable.
Each tunnel in the arrangement supports up to 1,600 kg per pallet and is capable of receiving goods at room temperature or in cold and frozen chambers. It means that Dynamic can be used in various industry and service segments.
Maintenance and efficiency
Sliding loads using gravity is not necessarily new. The difference here is the optimization of this idea through a solution that is custom designed, customer by customer, which ensures efficiency and economy, not only in the electricity bill (which would be no small thing), but in maintenance , also.
The speed control is done by means of a gearbox coupled to the rollers, which is extremely precise. Because roller movement is slow – utilizing gravity as the design predefined – the need for track maintenance is minimal because the bearings are designed for even higher speeds. In practice, pallets glide smoothly, evenly, without “digging in” over the other, leaving the ability to meet different demands.
In addition to lower energy and maintenance costs, Dynamic is also ideal for products that need more attention to shelf life, such as food and refrigerated items. The solution uses the FIFO system – “first in first out”. This means that the first pallet placed in the tunnel is always the first on the list to leave, which facilitates (and greatly) inventory control. There is no risk that a charge that is about to expire will be caught in the midst of others with longer validity.
Different demands, different projects
Although some bottlenecks are common to different ventures, each company has specific logistical needs. Efficient handling has to take this into account. When developing a project, Águia Sistemas analyzes which product will be stored and which pallet models will be used, as well as the equipment that will transport them according to the physical characteristics of the warehouse.
After that, the structures are designed based on the building layout, so that the best configuration for incoming and outgoing goods can be reached.
In the assembly stage, the tracks are carefully regulated and tested, as pallets that pass through the same tunnel must have equal weight to maintain the harmony of the assembly. With this, it is possible to build a smart arrangement for the most diverse loads.
