Demag Cranes received the order to supply eight fully automated process cranes and a warehouse management system from the Chinese company Anhui Shanying Paper Industry Co. Ltd. The cranes will be used in what will be in future the largest paper-roll shipping store in the world, constructed by Shanying Paper at its headquarters in Maanshan/China. In the store, the rolls produced by two new paper machines will be stored temporarily and prepared for shipping. The required high handling rates will be achieved by virtue of the fact that the cranes are equipped with mechanical roll clamps, which can hold up to four rolls at a time. Commissioning of the store is planned for the end of 2012.
The largest paper-roll shipping store in the world
The Chinese company Shanying Paper, based in Maanshan in the province of Anhui, is considerably expanding its capacity for paper for corrugated cardboard tubes. To this end, in the second half of 2013 the company will be commissioning two new paper machines with capacities of 1,540 tons of corrugated medium and test liner paper and 1,380 tons of test liner paper and Kraft liner paper in daily operation. In order to ensure that this high production output is channelled, put into storage and delivered on time, Shanying Paper is investing in a new paper-roll shipping store. Over a total area of more than 23,300 sqm, the store is divided into two mirror-image buildings, with two bays each. With a theoretical filling level of 80 percent, the store operated by Shanying Paper will hold a volume of 105,000 tons of paper and will thus be the largest paper-roll shipping store in the world.
