Warehouse automation is when the warehouse is operated by machines and computers. Common automated operators are conveyors, carousels, cranes, and more. One of the advantages of an automated warehouse is to increase profitability by reducing labor costs and to streamline productivity.
Conveyors use belts to move goods from one place to another. They can also commonly be used for sorting. Common conveyor belts in everyday life are escalators, moving sidewalks (commonly in airports), and at the post office. Conveyors are usually used to move goods horizontally.
Another common operator for an automated warehouse is a Carousel. A carousel is a rotating machine or mechanism that will move goods in a circle or cycle. An example of this would be the system at the airport for passengers collecting their luggage. Carousels in a warehouse are much like shelves but they move and rotate in a cycle.
Cranes are machinery used for moving objects by using one or more arms or beams. Warehouse cranes are great for moving heavy objects vertically and to high places. A crane can also be used as an alternative to using conveyors belts where a flat surface is not possible. A good example of where cranes are commonly used is automated storage systems. Much like how you organize all your movies on shelves the crane moves goods to much larger shelves but they use computers to keep track of the inventory. The computer will tell the cranes where to go to pick up items as well as place them. The benefits of automated warehouse machinery for storage facilities are in areas where property is expensive and vertical storage is more profitable.
Warehouse automation is great for use in warehouses that require cold temperatures or for creating small electronics that are fragile that could be easily damaged my humans. Warehouse automation machinery is an ideal way to make more efficient production and reduces costs that would usually go to labor.
