In the past, a number of warehouses that previously existed individually in the workplace were integrated into MGPC. Install its own auto-warehouses and store maintenance components and consumables, such as distribution systems, machine tool, and IT equipment (= photo).
MGPC is also used as an after-sales service center for logistics systems and machine tool, and a showroom for automated warehouses. To achieve more efficient parts supplies, the company introduced its own IoT technologies.
The automated warehouses are equipped with cameras and sensors to “visualize” operating status and inventory of components. Business Continuity Plan (BCP) measures are also in place.
The warehouse utilizes the latest seismic isolation equipment, and the operating software is also standardized with the parts warehouse of other locations. It has established a system that enables alternative shipments even if the MGPC is damaged.
