STORAGE & CONVEYING SOLUTIONS AT A GLANCE:
Automated storage and retrieval systems are a perfect solution for warehouses that are running out of space, want to lower costs or improve order accuracy. Our AS/RS solutions offer value-added logistics process automation for both unit and mini loads, that help our customers improve accuracy, efficiency and productivity while reducing safety risks, accidents and errors. Thanks to full integration into the warehouse management system, AS/RS systems can increase the speed of information and optimise order visibility.
When space in warehouses is limited, AS/RS make the most of the available space by integrating vertical storage. At the same time, they offer a solution to the lack of skilled labour and safety concerns in the warehouse. Given the reduction in accidents and errors, AS/RS offer higher order accuracy and a competitive reduction in the cost to consumers. We offer solutions for storing and buffering a variety of goods from pallets and cases to individual items or “eaches".
Demand for efficient logistics space and rapidly growing e-commerce sales have caused warehouses to increase in size and height. Conveyor systems not only save valuable space but optimise internal workflows and create efficient and fast inter-unit transportation. They are central when operators seek to automate their intralogistic streams. By reducing the need for human intervention in repetitive and strenuous processes thereby improving safety and work conditions for operators.
Conveyor systems decrease accidents, product breakages and damage and make warehouse operations safer by reducing forklift traffic around operators. For warehouses that operate or hold stock in multiple buildings, conveying systems can be a real game changer. In the competiton for customers and lower operational costs, conveying systems help warehouses to improve the use of labour and space and increase both productivity and efficiency.
Impressions Conveying Solutions:
Automated guided vehicles (AGVs) for efficient and flexible warehouse operations
Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) transport goods in warehouse and distribution centres without manual intervention or fixed conveying systems. They provide a perfect transportation solution throughout the warehouse from trailer to storage or production, through to wrapping, shipping and dispatch. Omnidirectional and equipped with a variety of navigation technologies, they follow configurable guide paths to data-driven just-in-time schedules. They respond automatically to obstructions in their paths and represent a safe, fast and versatile method for optimising transportation in warehouses and distribution centres.
We integrate AGVs that improve not only shipping speed but also accuracy, reducing product touches, the opportunity for human error and stock discrepancies. Suitable for a variety of interfaces, AGVs, singularly or operating in fleets, can substantially increase the flexibility in your warehouse and extend the viability of existing shelving and transfer equipment. If you are looking to increase productivity, reduce accidents and product damage and need to scale your operations in line with demand, speak to us today.
