The last of the total of four production plants for TROSIFOL polyvinyl butyral (PVB) film have now been linked up to the new Mowital raw materials warehouse
At the end of August, the last of the total of four production plants for TROSIFOL polyvinyl butyral (PVB) film were linked up to the new Mowital raw materials warehouse (PVB resin). The first plant has been supplied from there since the middle of August, and the other three have since joined in succession. At the end of the year, the new fifth plant for the production of special automotive films will be served by this central raw material warehouse as well. A smooth supply of raw materials is thus assured for all the production lines at the location.

A laser navigation system steers the shuttle – an unmanned forklift truck (FLT) – to a conveyor belt on which the big bag is carried to the production plant in question.
When its battery depletes, the shuttle runs automatically to the charging station. There the battery is manually changed so that the shuttle can continue to work without interruption. Should the control system ever fail, the shuttles can also be operated manually at any time. A warehouse employee then simply takes his seat on the shuttle and drives it like a conventional FLT. Two such shuttles are currently in use, and there is space for a further unit.
The SAP software, warehouse management and shuttle control are interlinked via an int...
