The new wire rod management system introduced in IBS, a Fontana Gruppo company specializing in fasteners for the automotive, is fully operational. Andrea Vercellio, Secondary rework manager at IBS, explains: «We created a vertical wire rod holder system, made from a steel load-bearing structure on which we can hang the rolls. Each module can carry up to six, for 9,000 kg.” The warehouse was finished two weeks ago. The operating staff evaluated the new wire rod holder for the possibility of speeding up loading/unloading times and because it allows us to avoid the risk of generating deformations in the wire rod rolls. «Not only that – adds Vercellio – some customers visiting the plant also showed appreciation.»
