Automated Warehouse Solutions from Custom Equipment Company can provide your business with an affordable plan to automate your material handling operations.  Monotonous tasks can be overcome by automated guidance vehicles and robotics that provide an ROI within 18 months or less.

 

Automated Warehouse SolutionsComplete automation for your warehouse makes it a logistical center that maximizes the efficiency of various processes, including shipping and receiving, by utilizing mechanical handling equipment and conveying systems. Standard forklifts disappear from warehouses and reduces the number of personnel to operate machinery.

Warehouse automation is a trend that is becoming more and more common in material handling today, in a time when businesses aim to increase competitiveness. The objective is to increase production and efficiency because only automation can guarantee maximum throughput around-the-clock.

What Makes An Automated Warehouse Affordable For Your Company?

Automated Warehouse Solutions

A completely automated warehouse is a facility that manages every aspect of its material handling operations, from receiving items to processing orders and sending them out, using automation for its logistics systems.

These warehouses are known for low levels of operator involvement in their logistical procedures. Some establishments are now known as “dark warehouses” as they don’t require lights because no physical manpower in necessary.

Since automation in warehouses can be customized to handle a variety of items, they are becoming more and more prevalent in a variety of industries. This includes food, automotive, and e-commerce.

The current trend towards process automation is prevalent in the healthcare industry. Automation allows for output levels to be kept while adhering to safety regulations within laboratories where workers’ movement has restrictions.

Over the next five years, many operations will employ automation as artificial intelligence (AI) replaces the numerous repetitive tasks that material handling organizations carry out. Automation for high-rack warehouses with driverless cars cruising the aisles are here. Supervisors can “see” the entire process with augmented reality glasses. This makes it easier for them to manage both personnel and robots. Real-time inventory tracking using warehouse management systems will guarantee that the inventory matches the ordering system. Spare components made to order will be produced by 3D printers.

Manage All Aspects of Material Handling With Automation

Automated Warehouse SolutionsImplementing automated solutions for one or more warehouse tasks, such as order picking, stock management, and products receiving is known as industrial process automation.

Installing automation systems is primarily done to maximize facility action.  One of which is via Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) that increase production, and reduce mistakes that could hurt the company’s ability to compete.  All logistical processes in the warehouse will require very little human involvement. The following are examples automating procedures in various material handling operations:

Automated Receipt of Goods

The goods receiving procedure in a logistics facility is essential to efficient stock control. The docks may have automated truck loading and unloading systems in place for this purpose.

Pallet conveyors and roller conveyors for boxes, totes, and bins are examples of automated conveying systems that help to expedite the flow of items from the loading docks to the various storage and/or work zones. Warehouse management software in automated facilities manages every aspect of this process, coordinating machinery to maximize productivity.

Automated Internal Transport and Conveyance

Automated Warehouse SolutionsAutomated Warehouse Solutions include transportation systems to continually supply the storage, order picking, and dispatch sections in place of manual handling equipment like forklifts.

Examples of these are conveyors that carry boxes or pallets of goods more efficiently between the various parts of the facility, depending on the unit load. Integrated pallet conveyor systems link production areas and storage zones.

Automated guided vehicles can replace manual handling equipment in facilities with low product density.  Concurrently, monorails connected via closed circuit, can be put in warehouses that service many locations. These aerial or floor-mounted transportation systems are made up of self-propelled trolleys that move products to their respective work areas.

Removal From Warehouse Racks

One of the most often automated processes in a logistics center is the removal and placement of products on warehouse racks. This is due to automation like miniload systems for boxes and stacker cranes for pallets, guarantee accuracy and productivity while being run by a warehouse management system.

Pallet checkpoints are important in fully automated warehouses where conveyors are used to distribute items. These assure the goods’ and the pallets’ safety and condition during the moving process.

Automated product storage and retrieval from racks in rack-supported warehouses with large square footage can be split into two aisles that are supplied with pallets by twin-mast stacker cranes. Warehouse management software serves as the facility’s brainpower for all product storage.

Automated Picking and Delivery

Automated Warehouse SolutionsSince order preparation activities are rarely repetitive or stable, they are among the most difficult to automate. However, there are methods that significantly increase a facility’s picking throughput, like industrial robotic arms that are provided with product via conveyors. These robotic arms handle several boxes at once.

Automated Warehouse Solutions

Sorters, which reroute goods to various work areas or shipping containers, are one type of technology that can automate order picking and shipment. Similarly, value-added order preparation and shipment activities can be automated with available solutions, such as labeling machines and robots for palletizing and stretch-wrapping.

 

Automated Warehouse Management Software

Automated Warehouse SolutionsAutomation Solutions include software that manages the facility’s handling and transportation systems. This warehouse control system is in charge of coordinating the movements of the machines, communicating with the warehouse management system. It instructs where each product should go and what operations to carry out. This technology allows for error-free execution of intricate procedures including products reception and multi-SKU order picking, as well as optimal mobility across the automated warehouse.

One of the main features of new automated storage and retrieval systems for boxes, is easier storage operations. Easy warehouse management systems manage the miniload system’s and the conveyors’ tasks.  This accounts for important factors like product turnover and final endpoint.
