SENCO Příbram Embarks on Advanced Robotics Automation with KVADOS and Hai Robotics


SENCO Příbram, a leading Czech company that engages in the design and production of low-voltage electrical switchgear, has successfully obtained financial support for the modernization of its intralogistics thanks to the quality of the documentation and the return on investment of the project. For the implementation of the project, the company chose an experienced supplier of complex logistics solutions, KVADOS, a.s.

Project Description

Within the framework of the company's development, an opportunity was identified to increase the quality of production through reliable material flow by modernising intralogistics. The idea was to modernize the outdated logistics area and add management and automation elements. For the development of the idea, a cooperation was established with the specialized consulting company LOGICON Partner, s.r.o. and a logistics study defined the variants of possible logistics development. The company management decided to opt for a modern solution using automation. For the implementation of this important project, which involved the delivery of a complex logistics management system (WMS), but also a robotic solution for the storage of smaller parts in KLT boxes and the expansion of the pallet warehouse capacity, the company applied for a subsidy from the EU Digital Enterprise programme. Due to the well-prepared documentation and also reasonable return on investment, the company received the subsidy and in the open tender process chose an experienced supplier of complex logistics solutions - KVADOS, a.s., which proposed a solution from Hai Robotics for automation and robotization. The solution enables the effective use of the current warehouse space. This solution is central to this project, providing advanced robotic technology for efficient storage and handling of small parts using 10-meter-high KLT robots and contributing to the overall improvement of the warehouse's operational efficiency. Efficient handling will be complemented by 2 conveyor-supported workstations as well as the myFABER® PalletJack X20 autonomous pallet robot.

Project Progress

The tender and follow-up contract was signed in January 2023. Work began immediately on the development of a comprehensive solution design and a study was initiated on the deployment of the WMS and its integration with other information systems used by SENCO. After the development of the design and the technical part of the project, key components such as myFABER® HaiPick robots, conveyor, racking system and more than 7 000 KLT totes were ordered. In the warehouse, construction work and modifications to the premises, floors, and wiring began, even during full operation of the warehouse and production. Until the end of 2023, delivery and installation will take place so that, according to the project schedule, trial and test operations can take place from the beginning of 2024 to the middle of 2024, with a gradual ramp-up of operations to the end of 2024.
