Warehouse automation is the process of automating the movement of inventory into, within, and out of warehouses to customers with minimal human assistance. As part of an automation project, a business can eliminate labour-intensive duties that involve repetitive physical work and manual data entry and analysis. Automation can start with a warehouse management system (WMS), data collection and inventory control. While warehouse automation has significant upfront costs, there are many benefits, ranging from improving operations to minimizing human error. The future of automating the warehouse lies in robotics and integrating artificial intelligence (AI) onto the warehouse floor. PLC, SCADA and DCS system Contributing major portion of ware house management. We Providing End to End Warehouse automation technology includes,
Goods-to-person fulfilment is one of the most popular methods for increasing efficiency and reducing congestion. This category includes conveyors, carousels and vertical lift systems. When properly applied, GTP systems can double or triple the speed of warehouse picking.
AS/RS are a form of GTP fulfilment technology that includes automated systems and equipment like material-carrying vehicles, shuttles and mini-loaders to store and retrieve materials or products. High-volume warehouse applications with space constraints tend to utilize AS/RS systems.
This class of mechanized automation has minimal onboard computing power. These vehicles use magnetic strips, wires or sensors to navigate a fixed path through the warehouse. AGVs are limited to large, simple warehouse environments designed with this navigation layout. Complex warehouses with lots of human traffic and space constraints are not good candidates for AGVs.
More flexible than AGVs, AMRs use GPS systems to create effective routes through a specific warehouse. It uses advanced laser guidance systems to detect obstacles, so AMRs can safely navigate dynamic environments with lots of human traffic. They are easy to program with routes and easy to implement quickly.
These systems use mobile barcode scanning devices synced to digital light displays to direct warehouse pickers where to place or pick up selected items. They can dramatically reduce walking and searching time and human error in high-volume situations.
The use of voice-directed warehouse procedures, also known as pick-by-voice, uses speech recognition software and mobile headsets. The system creates optimized pick paths to direct warehouse workers where to pick or put away a product. This method eliminates the need for handheld devices like RF scanners, so pickers can concentrate on their task with improved safety and efficiency.
Sortation is the process of identifying items on a conveyor system and diverting them to a warehouse location using RFID, barcode scanners and sensors. Companies use automated sortation systems in order fulfilmentfor receiving, picking, packing and shipping.
In addition to all these, we could do any customization based on requirement. We could scaleup existing warehouse automation with advances technologies. We Investigate existing process and propose turnkey solutions.
