Cassioli continues its advance as one of the main suppliers of automated systems for airport intralogistics.

After the recent news of the supply of numerous ATRS systems for the main Spanish airports, our company is awarded the tender for the installation of 8 new Fast2Checks at Bologna’s Guglielmo Marconi Airport.

Together with Smiths Detection, world leader in the production of security screening technologies, Cassioli will supply the new lines for the control of hand baggage for the Bologna Airport.

The installation will include the new C3 type X-Ray machines, with three-dimensional scanning technology, certified according to the “C3” regulations. This particular X-ray unit, already successfully installed at Fiumicino Airport, is a big step forward compared to traditional control systems, as it allows passengers to carry out the usual inspection procedures without having to remove anything from their hand luggage.

This means that passengers will no longer have to remove liquids, PCs, mobile phones and tablets from hand luggage and deposit everything that is usually considered as “unsuitable” in the trays, but will simply leave everything inside their bags: it will be the special Smiths Detection X-ray machine to inspect these objects directly inside the hand luggage, thanks to the innovative tomographic technology.

All this will lead to speeding up the control operations for passengers and therefore to a substantial streamlining of procedures, due to the considerable time savings achieved by avoiding removing the objects first and repositioning them inside the bags at the end of the inspection.

Thanks to its automated systems, Cassioli once again contributes to increasing security within the main Italian airports, thanks to the more effective threat detection capability of these new devices.

 

After numerous projects carried out by our company in the Iberian Peninsula, Cassioli returns as winner in Spain by winning the construction of the new ATRS systems of the most important Spanish airports.
In fact, Cassioli won the tender with the Spanish giant Telefónica for the construction of 95 Fast2Check in the airports of Madrid, Palma de Mallorca, Valencia, Alicante, Pamplona, Vigo and Girona.
Seven airports joining Fast2Check ATRS (Automatic Tray Return System) and the numerous BHS baggage handling and delivery systems that have been built in the past for these and many other Spanish airports, including Barcelona, Seville and Santiago.

 

 

Cassioli wishes you a Merry Christmas
and a peaceful and prosperous New Year!
We hope your holidays will be filled
with joy and happyness.

At the gala ceremony, held on 2 December at the Special Economic Zone in Łódź, the prize for Cassioli Polska was collected by Mario Roghi, Member of the Management Board of the Polish branch of our company, who said: “It is with great pleasure that we welcome with enthusiasm this recognition, that repays us for all the efforts made by employees in recent years and motivates us to achieve ever more ambitious goals, which strengthen the entire Cassioli Group “.

Among the winners, there were also important companies active in the construction, chemical, fashion, legal, consulting, IT and television production sectors.

Cassioli Polska, one of the most important production centers of our company abroad since 2005, is once again confirmed as a solid and concrete reality, capable of representing the values, efficiency and quality of Cassioli systems even beyond outside national borders.

Thanks to the Cassioli automatic systems, Palazzoli has significantly improved the picking phase for the preparation of orders and the internal organization of its warehouse

Italian company specialized in electrical equipment for industrial plants and for the distribution of electricity, Palazzoli has been active in the electricity market for over 100 years, both in Italy and abroad, presenting itself as one of the leading companies in the electrotechnical and in the lighting market.

The company turned to Cassioli with the aim of significantly improving the picking phase for the preparation of orders, increasing the number of bays and allowing operators to complete  up to 3 orders simultaneously through batch picking.

In addition to picking phase improvement, Palazzoli needed to organize the pallets (Europallets), which until then were arranged on the ground, in a new automatic warehouse, which should have been guided by a new management software, capable of interfacing with both the company management system and the existing automatic warehouse where supports other than pallets (Skid) were used. The goal was to have a single management system capable of organizing all the material flows addressed to the picking bays, in order to increase their efficiency and productivity.

Cassioli therefore designed a solution organized in 3 parts:

  • upgrade of the existing warehouse and the warehouse logistics by replacing the conveyors and modifying the electrical panel of the old stacker cranes, in order to increase performance and safety;
  • installation of a new automatic warehouse with 2 double-depth stacker cranes and 4 new picking bays, capable of processing both materials handled on Skid and Europallet;
  • implementation of the Cassioli management system in a single system able to manage both the warehouses and the flow of products to the picking bays.

In order not to hinder the company’s production processes, Cassioli implemented the automatic warehouse in several steps, integrating the existing plant one part at a time, thus allowing Palazzoli to carry on production without interruption.

Thanks to the Cassioli systems, Palazzoli completely reorganized the logistics of shipments: the new ASRS made it possible to store up to approximately 4,500 pallets, eliminating the previous excessive traffic of personnel and forklifts in an already densely operational area. Furthermore, the new picking bays have allowed operators to receive materials handled both on skids and on pallets – without moving from the work area – and to be able to use them to satisfy up to 3 shipping orders at the same time, thus increasing productivity and ergonomics.

Thanks to the new WMS, the single management of material flows has streamlined traffic on the transport lines; finally, the modification of the existing stacker cranes made it possible to integrate them into the new WMS and to improve their management in complete safety.

 

Redistribution and optimization of the ATRS lines in the new Terminal 1 of Rome Airoport

The importance of automation in the pharmaceutical industry chain.

The efficiency of the production system within pharmaceutical companies is a fundamental aspect to ensure rapid and timely distribution of products. Medicines must be produced in a completely safe environment and above all they must be traceable, in order to guarantee compliance with standards and rapid response to the orders placed.

The automatic warehouses developed by Cassioli are strategic and able to ensure not only high productivity for pharmaceutical companies thanks to the correct storage of raw materials, but also the complete traceability of the latter and the drugs themselves.

The use of automated systems for handling and storage of sensitive goods like pharmaceuticals undoubtedly requires systems with a high level of efficiency and great attention to safeguarding the quality and safety standards.

The pharmaceutical sector also requires strong control over incoming and outgoing materials, which sometimes require special conditions, such as low temperatures.

An automatic warehouse for the pharmaceutical sector may, for example, need specific devices for temperature control, as the products need to be kept within precise ranges to preserve their quality and therefore their effectiveness in absolute terms.

In addition to automatic warehouses in the pharmaceutical industry it is fundamental the use of cobots (collaborative robots) which allow to significantly accelerate production processes in small spaces and with numerous functions.

Robots and cobots can in fact be used not only in the production line, but also for the packaging of goods, for the preparation of orders and for the preparation of shipments to end customers.

The collaborative robot performs repetitive tasks with little added value: delicate in its movements, it manipulates the packaging of medicines by setting up the orders sent by pharmacies; moreover, it does not need large spaces for maneuver, but can operate safely in confined spaces. The robot therefore guarantees a reduction in product costs and standardization of the quality of work, as well as extreme ease of installation.

With the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic and with the worsening of the health emergency, pharmaceutical companies have increasingly felt the strong need to react promptly to the demand for hospitals and pharmacies: thanks to automation it has been possible to maintain high productivity even in environments where manpower had necessarily failed. Thanks to industrial automation, in fact, the plants were able to work 24/7 autonomously.

Pharmaceutical companies have thus been able to ensure continuity in the supply of individual protective devices and drugs of primary importance, without losing sight of the objectives of efficiency and preserving the health of the operators.

Cassioli, a leading company in the automation sector, has been the official supplier of the most important Italian and international pharmaceutical companies for many years: an example of this is the numerous collaborations with companies of the caliber of IBSA, Estar and Novartis.

Cassioli offers the customer customized automatic systems for every type of need, from the storage of raw materials and medicines – also for sub-zero temperatures – to automatic handling and servicing systems for production lines, up to packaging and preparation orders, providing cutting-edge machinery capable of guaranteeing speed, precision and safety at every stage of the production process.

AENA, the company responsible for Spanish airports and air navigation, after the works carried out at the airports of Madrid, Santiago and Seville, chooses again Cassioli as a partner for hand baggage control operations through the innovative Fast2Check Cassioli; this will ensure high safety standards and, in addition, will be able to optimize space and speed up the flow of passengers, significantly improving both the travel experience and the airport staff operations.

The Cassioli systems for the automatic management of trays at security gates and their return (ATRS) will therefore be part of the renewal plan of Terminal 2 of Barcelona Airport and will be installed in the new departure area. It will be placed a total of 25 new Fast2Check lines with lengths up to 24 meters. The 25 lines will be divided into 18 Fast2Check Advanced and 7 Fast2Check Easy, already prepared for the installation of the new x-ray computed tomography machines (category C3).

The installation of the new Fast2Check will guarantee important advantages from a safety point of view thanks to the innovative sorting line for suspicious baggage, which will allow the selection of rejected baggage, that is not compliant with safety regulations, in a rapid and completely automatic way; this will also allow the automatic transport of them in a section of the line, intended for more detailed checks or for reconciliation with the passenger.

The innovative design of the lines uses highly technological materials that gives antibacterial and even antiviral properties thanks to the ability of photocatalysis, besides allowing to obtain hygiene certifications (the tests carried out have also confirmed the ability to eliminate coronaviruses such as covid 19).

Cassioli has always been an official partner of the Rolling On Interroll (ROI) program, an international program of the worldwide Interroll group aimed at creating a network of global skills of partners specializing in material handling industry, has been selected by Interroll as Approved Accelerator increasing the multi-year commercial relationships between the two companies and guaranteeing the use by Cassioli of the ROI quality mark.
The Rolling On Interroll program is based on the fundamental belief that in today’s fast-paced and ever-changing world, no one can do it all alone. It is therefore believed that joining forces with trusted partners and investing in true long-term partnerships will lead to significantly better results for all stakeholders.

Cassioli is pleased to be part of this program and to have been awarded this status in recognition of our experience and expertise in Interroll products.
