Chocolate Manufacturing - Buffer Storage

Kardex carousels store chocolate bunnies

Chocolats Halba in Wallisellen, Switzerland has been manufacturing and distributing the finest chocolate and confectionery products since 1933

A Megamat RS 350 vertical carousel by Kardex Remstar was installed as a buffer store.

Today, it is possible to temporarily store up to 3,000 chocolate bunnies.

If production at the filling station or in the cooling department is interrupted, the staff can take the semi-finished products from the buffer store and finish and wrap them without interrupting the production process

The result was a 30% increase in productivity
