New warehouses are propagating that offer radical advantages in flexibility and modularity along with notable net reductions in both material and cost. While traditional warehousing relies heavily on fixed infrastructure, equipment operators, and capital-intensive material handling equipment, micro-fulfillment operations combine more intelligent and built-to-purpose automation solutions that are designed to be more flexible and scale with the business.
These warehouses have had a head start in emerging economies such as those found in the Asian pacific where labor costs are relatively low and demand for viable ROIs leads to lower footprint, lower cost, and flexible approaches to automation. Today’s technology offers many different types of material handling and storage solutions like ASRSs, shuttles, AGVs, AMRs, ACRs, rack-based climber/puller mobile robots, and lifter cranes. Each of these storage solutions can then be combined with picking robots to form a total automated solution, but the right combination of technologies for maximum throughput is still up in the air and many companies spend tens of millions of dollars on trial-error and proof-of-concept systems to see what works for their flow. In this seminar, we will review the various combinations of technologies found in the industry, their advantages and disadvantages in production scenarios, and describe the trend of the logistics sector as it gets more and more automated with robotics technologies. Central to this trend is how to fully automate picking tasks and arrange the material flow in a way that such tasks can be automated in a more cost-effective manner.
