An enormous warehouse necessitates mapping of thousands of positions, and for the system to track order numbers and individual products on the pallets while transmitting information wirelessly back to the central control room for collection and monitoring.
As the labor pool continually changes and work environment standards become higher, it is becoming more difficult to attract and retain employees that are willing to perform repeatable, monotonous tasks.
When it comes to warehouse management, there's a lot to consider. Overhead costs, employee efficiency, order fulfillment are just some of the many daily operations involved in warehousing today. However, there are ways to streamline these processes for greater productivity.
Even if you don't have immediate plans to add robotic automation to your order picking process, you can still leverage the benefits with pallet moving robots. These robots improve the workflow at the transport dock - improving the speed to unload and load trucks.
Modern manufacturing requires facilities to maximize efficiency and ensure product quality. However, space limitations can impede these goals. Integrating elevations and line egress solutions will grant your facility the flexibility it needs to succeed.
Downtime is particularly costly in an operation that relies on carefully coordinated logistics, so optimizing charging times and speeds based on operational needs is very advantageous.
To run at peak efficiency 24/7 and support the sophisticated systems of autonomous robots, automated inventory identification, and other emerging technology, warehouse management and IT teams must consider new networking options.
Robotics Pioneer Exotec Raises $335M Series D to Improve Supply Chain Resilience for Global Retailers
Goldman Sachs Asset Management invests in Exotec robotic systems to improve warehouse working conditions while also optimizing operational efficiency
Warehouse automation isn't brand new, and many units have some degree of automation integrated. The next step, and the key to ultimate efficiency, is to fully automate warehouse logistics.
For companies still without an automation infrastructure in place - and if we're honest, that's likely the majority - it's time to catch up. Robotics help meet supply chain demands and improve employee safety.
Yantra replaces Traditional Navigation with 'Natural Feature' Technology from Guidance Automation, Reducing Maintenance and Manpower Expenses
Leveraging third-party hardware, such as a robotic picking arm, and software, such as customized WMS, is crucial if you want true flexibility in your robotics system.
The Latest Evolution of High-Performance Laser-Guided Vehicles Streamlines Pallet Movement in Deep-Freeze Warehouses
Technology advances in automated deep-freeze distribution have provided advantages for increased throughput, system uptime and a better ROI. Laser-guided vehicles, playing a pivotal role in this sub-zero technological evolution, have recently taken a quantum leap forward.
In this article, let's dive deeper into how it works and what factors you should consider if you are thinking to switch to using the Goods-to-Person fulfillment model.
Through the combination of technology and our expertise in designing automated high-density storage and retrieval, we're able to achieve high levels of throughput that only automation working alongside people can bring.

To maximize the productivity of an autonomous mobile robot (AMR) or automatic guided vehicle (AGV) deployment, it's critical to create the optimal environment that allows the vehicles to perform at their peak. For that reason, Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products, LLC® (www.resindek.com) created the TriGard® ESD Ultra finish for its ResinDek® engineered flooring panels. The TriGard ESD Ultra finish is ideal for high-traffic robotic applications characterized by highly repetitive movement patterns and defined travel paths.
