BENEFITS

Because automated systems nearly instantaneously identify the locations of all items in a particular order, warehouse automation increases speed. Better yet, warehouse automation systems optimize routes and maximize productivity during the product retrieval process. Warehouse automation also speeds up order fulfilment when warehouses leverage robots and conveyors; as a result, these companies can offer free overnight shipping. Finally, warehouse automation speeds up inventory management processes by leveraging the technology to automatically count items.

Warehouse automation systems maximising warehouse space by utilising robots and other automated guided vehicles that complete product retrieval and storage tasks and reduce the need for wide aisles that accommodate large pallets and pallet jacks and workers. AS/RS systems also use conveyors and lifters that reduce the amount of space used for aisles.

By reducing human error, warehouse automation can streamline inventory management, allowing for more accurate inventory counts and related inventory data.

Many warehouse automation systems bring the products to the worker, rather than the worker going to the products. As a result, foot and equipment traffic throughout the facility is decreased, enhancing overall warehouse safety. This can also reduce product damage by reducing the need for warehouse staff to manually move products from location to location.

HOW WAREHOUSE AUTOMATION WORKS?

ARAPL conceptual design for AS/RS (Automatic Storage/ Retrieval System);

  1. Incoming material being(auto) unloaded from trucks to infeed conveyor.
  2. Incoming material being carried by the crane to be stored at appropriate shelf on the racks after barcode scan.
  3. Outgoing material, as called by the order fulfilment system, being carried by the crane to the outfeed conveyor.
  4. Empty totes, pre-assigned for specific customer order and sequenced as per order-fulfilment, are pulled by the operator.
  5. Turn-table for transferring the carton-box to the next operator.
  6. Operator filing individual totes as per customer’s order using Pick-to-Light system.
  7. After fulfilling Customer’s order, totes get assigned to a specific bay/truck as per geographical distribution.
  8. Cartons moving to the next operator as per customer’s order.
  9. After serving all operators, part-filled cartons are stored back on its designed shelf.
  10. Empty cartons being discarded.
