Why Automate? To Modernize and Drive Productivity

In today’s marketplace, customers want your products, and they want them now. Their expectations for overnight delivery and access to fresh products are rapidly rising and driving operational changes throughout manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution channels.

To meet these demands, Food & Beverage and Supply Chain leaders must increase their readiness to integrate, and scale production to remain competitive. Operations and process managers should accelerate automation responsiveness from the food production floor to beyond the last-minute mile, reducing manual processes and maximizing space.

Integrate Human Interaction with Automation in Intelligent Ways

Defining how you must make, move, store, and pick items across your supply chain is the first step in evaluating your intralogistics systems flow.

  • Automate your storage, case picking, and transport processes with flexibility, enhancing functionality without human interaction
  • Evaluate human interactions and robotic operation integration, blending staff skills and training with technical requirements to increase efficiency.
  • AGVs (automated guided vehicles) and RGVs (rail-guided vehicles) can automate repetitive, manual handling tasks, allowing your employees to focus on more lucrative tasks.
  • Using your existing system, choose automated solutions to meet customer demands faster, more efficiently, and more accurately. 

Identify material handling solutions that improve operational efficiency and productivity.

AS/RS Sortation & G2P

When space and speed matter, consider vertical UniShuttle storage & retrieval systems where cases/totes are picked, sequenced, and transported in/out to a bi-directional Shuttliner, where RGVs feed G2P (goods to person) picking stations.

Automated Transport

Automate repetitive transport and manual handling tasks to reduce workplace injuries. Repurpose employees to more profitable value-added duties, increasing production and profits. Driverless AGV vehicles retrieve, transport, and deposit loads to/from ASRS or racking systems, reducing product damage.

Choose the right ASRS solution based on your product & load characteristics: (weight, height, case/tote, or pallet). Evaluate how Unit Load, Mini-Load or Quad systems will integrate with your floor space, environmental factors, and manufacturing processes to meet your throughput goals.
