Mark Stevenson, Chief Sales Officer at BALYO, a leader in innovative robotic solutions for material handling, recently discussed how space utilization can increase 10 – 30% by simply adding elevation of storage capacity. Read more in Industrial Technology magazine.
According to Stevenson, “There is a reason 3PLs (third-party logistics), distribution centers, warehouses, and manufacturing work cells have not considered adding a layer of shelving, racking, and conveyance. The limitation of the reach trucks needed to strategically ‘go up’ have prohibited getting access to the extra level of mezzanine capacity. This constraint has been solved with robotics and industrial technology.”
“With access to higher racking levels, up to 55 feet, pallets of finished goods can be stored prior to shipping. Robots using the latest 3D technology means pick and drop reliability is available even at the highest elevations. Starting at level three, mobile robots actually provide faster cycle times and higher throughput than manual forklifts.” added Stevenson.
Thanks to these new robotic solutions, neither automation nor elevation are scary. Most importantly, these robotics solutions provide the same level of speed and reliability at every elevation as they do at ground level. This translates directly into increased volumes at the same operating costs.
