The Successful Climb of another Mountain – Newamstar Debuts Intelligent AS/RS


A few days ago, on the “2014 China Tea·Coffee·Plant Beverage Development  Conference” hosted by the China Beverage Industry Association, representatives of Newamstar shared the technique of “digital beverage plant safety intelligent storage and logistics solutions”, which aroused strong repercussions and deeply shocked participants. After years of research and development, Newamstar becomes the first to introduce intelligent AS/RS(automatic storage and retrieval system)  in China liquid (beverage) packaging machinery industry, which makes Newamstar as ”an innovator” in the front of the industry again and more competitive to participate in market competition.

As an enterprise of thoughts, deposit and responsibility, Newamstar always offers reliable and optimized designs for the planning of customers’ whole packaging production line according to the diversified needs, creatively and proactively providing super value equipment and services.

Over the years, Newamstar found that traditional factories used discrete layout, and packaging line or packaging workshop and storage were relatively separated. Materials and products were carried out by single logistics equipment or personnel. On this day in 21st century, it has become the restriction factor of production development, which is not only adverse for the enterprise to reduce cost and improve efficiency, but also seriously influence green sustainable development of enterprises.

In 2004, Newamstar firstly put forward the concept of “AS/RS of bottle”, and went on to help Danon, Wahaha, Runtian and other enterprises to implement “AS/RS of bottle”, which largely reduced space and labor power. In 2005, Newamstar pioneered robotic case packing and palletizing system in the industry, replacing workers labor, reducing amount of work, and highlighting the application effectiveness of automation technology in secondary packaging. In 2010, with the comprehensive promotion of Newamstar high-speed blowing-filling-capping combiblock, AS/RS of preform, bottle caps and other packaging materials was put into research and then to the market in 2011. Today, the spread of Newamstar mature intelligent AS/RS concept will trigger a new round of intelligent packaging innovation boom in the industry, leading the industry towards the direction of intelligent packaging.

Automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS), can not only automatically access the operation unit of goods by computer control system, but also use automated storage device with the computer management system to reasonably place storage, so as to reduce errors, speed up goods access and improve operation efficiency; improve space utility ratio, reduce storage and land investment cost; reduce labor intensity, improve the working environment and reduce the manpower cost; optimize whole system, improve the production efficiency and the management level; improve customer satisfaction, achieve the speediness, reliability and traceability of food safety.

A mountain passed, a peak again. For many years, with rich practical experience in packaging field, Newamstar vowed to provide the entire solution for intelligent packaging production line and storage physical systems for customers, at the beginning of 2014, China first 80,000 bph blowing-filling-capping combiblock was successfully developed, and now, Newamstar pioneers intelligent AS/RS, dedicating himself to a digital factory.

Think about further and pack this wonderful. Newamstar changes for you and creates for you.

Sanitary and washable capper:Optimized cam surface design ensures the minimum
impact force of the capper .Bottle discharging starwheel is screwing decently, so it is unnecessary to adjust the conveyor height during bottle format change.

Driven by innovation and win the market by quality!

Newamstar has focused on liquid packaging industry since from its establishment. Taking innovation as guide and basis, we have been forging ahead constantly.

As an outstanding company in China high-end equipment industry, Newamstar has built a dimensional product system gradually including beverage, milk, alcohol, condiment and daily used chemicals. We have won many innovative “China First” for various products. All these achievements and milestones will be fixed and memorized in the long history of Newamstar.


In recent years, with the increasing of automation and production capacity of liquid food packing line, contradictions between inventory and production capacity have become increasingly prominent. At the same time, with the increase of land cost and labor cost,traditional discrete model of warehousing and logistics using single logistics equipment or personnel to carry out the transportation of product and raw materials has been outdated.

With the deepening of “industry 4.0” and “Internet +” concept, the Chinese industry is transforming from the traditional labor-intensive to the industrial automation, and the traditional management mode based on people is turning to computer-based Information and modern management. Intelligent equipment represented by robot and a new generation of logistics model with the function of data collection, management and data tracing is being more widely used in the market.

Intelligent stereoscopic warehouse system: the first choice of beverage factory to upgrade the modern warehousing and logistics

As the Chinese leader in the field of liquid packaging, Newamstar accumulated rich experience in long-term development. By industry research, product technology development and the integration of industry resources over one year, Newamstar introduced the concept of “Internet +” into the production line followed by the pace of “Industry 4.0”. On the basis of rising the capacity and stability of liquid packaging production line, Newamstar optimized the structure of production lines and improved the level of automation of the production line by reducing the cost, and improving the quality and efficiency.

System composition:

  • Goods transition and storage – high rise shelf, tray and container.
  • Check in & out device – palletizer.
  • Check in & out distribution system – roller and chain conveyor, distributing vehicle, lifter, etc.
  • WCS control system – includes check in-out device controlled by computer, distribution system, various kinds of inspection and safety device controlled by electricity.
  • WMS warehouse management system – warehouse account management, data analyzing, goods site arrangement, device operation and warehouse storage display, etc.

A double extension tunnel stacking machine is adopted in the projects of“Moon over a Fountain Co. Ltd”, which achieve an effective balance between capacity and efficiency by improving space utilization and flexibility of warehousing in a limited space. The production line is connected with the warehouse directly, so a lot of material transfer links was saved. With advance internet technology, it realizes the resources and data sharing and connection between the ERP(enterprise resource management system), MES (manufacturing execution system) and WMS (warehouse management system) to reduce the mistakes and speed up access of the goods. Compared with the traditional discrete warehouse, Intelligent stereoscopic warehouse system can save the cost of land investment, reduce labor intensity, improve the working environment and reduce labor costs, finally improve the production efficiency and the level of modern management by making packaging and storage system Integrated, automated and intelligent.

In 2015, with excellent R&D design team and processing advantages of equipment manufacturing, Newamstar completed the development of automated warehouse system with tunnel stackerand RGV rail transport trolley. In the same year, Newamstar successfully presented it on CBST exhibition in Shanghai, and received wide attention from lots of companies in the industry. In 2016, automated material transport under special circumstances is solved by researching and developing non-rail AGV transport trolley. Through the introduction of advanced visual logistics simulation software, we can make simulation test in the project planning process, and do all kinds of system analysis and engineering verification for the model to get the final optimized the design. It can also quickly confirm the logistic equipment solution, further verify the feasibility of the project, provide improving and management basic data for the system, and reduce operating costs of production enterprises.

Currently, Newamstar are upgrading internal logistic system within the enterprise based on stereoscopic warehouse system, which is going to build an automated logistics system by using AGV non-rail intelligent trolley to distribute the raw materials, and create a new automated management system with the product lifecycle management, process management and information management.

A new era, a new chapter, a new dream. With the evolution and promotion of intelligent stereoscopic warehouse system, it will help beverage manufacturers to clarify and refine requirements, quantify data target and accuracy control of the production process, and finally help to realize the intelligent, automation and modernization of plant.
