Efficient and accurate management of warehouse and material handling processes is a significant challenge for businesses in all industries. Due to ongoing supply chain issues, companies face pressure to shorten lead times to stay competitive. A solution that some businesses have found helpful is incorporating more automation in their warehousing operations. Automation enables the monitoring and tracking of products as they enter and exit the warehouse. It also reduces the burden on workers responsible for selecting products for shipment or transferring products to manufacturing lines. With the addition of automation in your warehouse, you will see productivity rise while keeping your workers safe.
Automated conveyor solutions use conveyors, robotics, sensors, and programming to create mechanical systems that scan, sort, and transport products to their desired locations at the appropriate times. In a fully automated warehouse, various intelligent motion systems may be used, such as automated storage and retrieval, AGVs (automated guided vehicles) or AMRs (autonomous mobile robots) for picking and transport, and conveyors for indexing and sorting. However, many facilities will not be fully automated, and combining these systems with human operators may be the most efficient solution. For example, using precision conveyors with a product management system can significantly increase the efficiency and productivity of a warehouse by providing accurate and repeatable processes faster than manual picking and sorting. In addition, this allows team members to focus on more complex tasks.
With the many automated solutions on the market, it can take time to pick the right one for your warehouse. Motion Ai makes it easy. Your warehouse's choice of automation system depends on the layout, goals, and current operations. For example, in a large warehouse with a high volume of inventory, a storage and retrieval system combined with AMRs can improve the speed and accuracy of picking and transporting products. However, a conveyor system for indexing and sorting products may be sufficient in a smaller warehouse that is easy for employees to navigate. Other factors when choosing a warehouse conveyance and automation system include the product size, warehouse environment, desired processing speed, and budget. These considerations will help you select a system that meets the needs of your products and facility. In addition, we always have specialists prepared to answer any questions you may have.
