Abstract [en]

This thesis aims to change the way Sandvik Coromant handles their chip managment system. The need arose when a larger project, involving the implementation of AGV (automatic guided vehicles) fork lifts to handle all the internal transports of goods. This forced Sandvik Coromant to change the current system of transporting metal chips.The work started with three days orientation in the factory. This was mainly to get a sense of how the chip managment system works today and what kind of solutions that could work given the circumstances.Idea generation resulted in a number of candidates, where only one was found to be realistically implementable, namely having the AGVs transport big bags placed on EUR pallets.Tests were conducted which showed that the big bags leak cutting fluid along the seams. Discussions have been established with suppliers regarding having specially made big bags which would be waterproof. If it is not possible to find waterproof big bags there are complimentary equipment that solves the problem discussed in Chapter 11 Recommendations.
