Xinjiang built the first unmanned RFID smart warehouse for power supplies
On November 11, in the Laomancheng warehouse in Urumqi, Xinjiang, a transport vehicle carrying a 10 kV power cable entered the loading and unloading area from the warehouse's No. 2 gate at the appointed time in advance. The materials in the vehicle passed the smart eye loading and unloading robot system. The realization of fully automatic loading and unloading of materials is only one of the "beginning" skills of the company's smart warehouse. On November 5, the Old Mancheng Smart Warehouse with a total area of approximately 13,290 square meters was successfully accepted and officially put into operation.
Since the beginning of this year, State Grid Xinjiang Electric Power is based on the strategic deployment of State Grid’s modern smart supply chain, and continues to promote the construction and deepening of the application of modern smart supply chains. Take the Laomancheng smart warehouse as a pilot, and use big data analysis technology on the basis of data visualization to establish the interaction between warehousing entities and the digital world, build an intelligent operation and maintenance system, and strive to build a regional material management ecological chain to achieve business and data double Drive change.
Automatic loading and unloading "one-stop" service
“Laomancheng Smart Warehouse is not only the first unmanned smart warehouse for electric power materials in Xinjiang, but also a benchmark for modern warehouses in Northwestern China.” said Wang Fengjiao, a warehouseman in the Materials Department of Urumqi Power Supply Company, through the use of three-dimensional dense warehouses, automated handling equipment, and vision sensors. And other Internet of Things equipment and information technology means can realize unattended and black light operation in old Mancheng warehouses.
Next to the loading and unloading area at the entrance of the warehouse is an in and out tally area with an area of about 65 square meters. In this area is an all-round "housekeeper"-the smart eye loading and unloading robot. Wearing an orange coat, it has an appearance that resembles a forklift. , Can load 3 tons. When the transport vehicle loads the materials into the loading and unloading area, the warehouseman uses remote operation and after the UWMS (Intelligent Warehouse Management System) system issues the operation instructions, the smart eye loading and unloading robot moves the inbound materials from the truck to the pallet in the inbound temporary storage area After the goods are bound to the pallet information through RFID (radio frequency identification), the materials are transported to the connection port of the conveyor line in the storage shelf area, and the stacker receives the operation instructions issued by the UWMS system and automatically puts the materials into the designated cargo space. Formed a warehouse-in/out model of "goods looking for people" and "goods looking for locations", greatly saving material handling time.
The Smarteye loading and unloading robot has functions such as deep visual recognition, automatic pitch fork, and cargo separation sensing. During loading and unloading, it scans and builds a digital virtual map through the Skyeye system. Under the guidance of the digital map, it can automatically and intelligently load and unload conventional materials.
This time, the Smarteye loading and unloading robot, panoramic 3D digital map technology and three-dimensional storage system are combined to realize fully automatic unmanned loading and unloading in the storage area, and the efficiency of in and out of the warehouse is greatly improved, reaching more than 36 pallets/hour. Among them, the three-dimensional storage method and the application of intelligent equipment compared with the traditional method, the material throughput is increased by more than 3 times, the storage capacity is increased by 4.8 times, and the work efficiency is increased by 10 times. Wang Fengjiao said: "Lighting is the basis for the goods in and out of the warehouse at night, but the smart eye loading and unloading robot "Night Elf", because it can rely on the Sky Eye system, unimpeded in the smart warehouse at night."
Efficient and intelligent management of small materials
Adjacent to the warehouse shelf area is the bin shelf area. There are two "little partners" named bin robots in this area. Compared with the smart eye loading and unloading robots, they are mainly for the storage of spare parts or small commodities. , Sorting and handling.
"Old Mancheng Smart Warehouse is the first power warehouse in China to use multi-machine collaborative bin robots. The purpose is to create an advanced management model for the rapid in and out of small materials." Wang Fengjiao said, each bin robot is equipped with 5 layers of load 50 The temporary storage area of the kilogram back basket, which is based on the guidance method of machine vision, realizes the effective recognition of the robot running path through the two-dimensional code navigation label recognition technology, and its parking positioning accuracy is better than 10mm, and it has automatic charging and laser obstacle avoidance functions. .
The bin shelf area uses bin robots as the carrier and adopts trackless flexible navigation technology. By establishing an adaptive multi-channel dual-machine collaborative robot mode, it can quickly access small insulators, fittings, auxiliary tools and other scattered materials, with an access efficiency of up to 70 boxes /Hour or more. That is, after the staff completes the sorting of small materials and the binding of the bins, the console will automatically measure the weight of the bins and RFID (radio frequency identification) identification, and the bin robot will perform the operation after receiving the instructions for the storage of small materials. Go to the console to hold and clamp the selected material bins to the back basket, and send them to 864 corresponding storage locations, to realize the automatic, digital and efficient intelligent management of small materials in the system.
Under the guidance of the “digital new infrastructure” construction, State Grid Xinjiang Electric Power takes advantage of the overall network resource allocation and rapid material storage, transportation and supply, promotes the integration and sharing of resources and information, and drives the material supply chain management direction with intelligent equipment and digital technology upgrading and innovation. Smart and outstanding transformation, and strive to build a smart warehouse with unmanned circulation and automated warehousing operations in the field, and improve the utilization of warehouse resources and work efficiency.
Information linkage uses data to speak
"The biggest advantage of the smart warehouse management system is that it can make the warehouse, materials, personnel, vehicles, "three defenses", automated equipment, business operations and other warehouse elements panoramic visualization, and realize the real-time status holographic perception and information of the virtual warehouse and the physical warehouse. The linkage is parallel." Wang Fengjiao said.
On the one hand, State Grid Xinjiang Electric Power relies on intelligent manufacturing and IoT perception technology to build a multi-state, large-capacity, high-throughput three-dimensional warehouse, combines the warehouse’s IoT data with an intelligent warehouse management system, applies VR and three-dimensional simulation technology, and introduces mobile Operating mode and three-dimensional panoramic virtual warehouse, staff can "immersively" locate materials in the three-dimensional scene, check the usage of the warehouse and the storage of materials, realize real-time inventory of materials, real-time monitoring of inbound and outbound, and automatic verification and analysis. All links of the whole process are fully perceived to improve the management and control ability of materials in the warehouse. At the same time, supporting the construction of a service hall and a smart access control system to realize paperless office and supplier collaborative services, and help build a good business environment.
On the other hand, starting from the deepening application of the modern smart supply chain, the old mancheng smart warehouse has also innovated to establish a dual-core big data center, creating a multi-dimensional visual data "cockpit", forming a global warehousing network and full amount of materials in an intranet environment The four management interfaces are integrated, full-chain business digitization and management decision-making coordination, to enhance business interoperability, data availability and resource sharing, realize global material coordination optimization, and upgrade supply chain management.
"The important point for us to create a "digital resource warehouse" is to find out the company's various materials' "family status" through this move, and deploy various materials better and faster, so as to achieve'global warehousing, full materials, and full chain business' Integrated management." Wang Fengjiao said, the company's management personnel at all levels can find real-time data and indicators related to their own business in the "digital resource warehouse" web interface, so as to realize the comprehensive data-driven business transformation, from "guided by experience" Transform to "speak with data", greatly enhance the scientificity of management and decision-making, and provide management decision support for problem correction and work plans.
In the next step, the State Grid Xinjiang Electric Power will continue to build a more precise and realistic "digital resource warehouse" management interface, and continue to dig deeper into the value of data, so as to enhance the company's lean management, quality and efficiency, and value creation capabilities, while further strengthening the management of all materials and the entire territory Warehousing network construction is committed to creating a 15-minute urban supply circle to provide stronger material support for the company's grid development.
