Conveying systems are critical infrastructure for many businesses. Fast, safe and efficient movement of goods through warehouses, factories and other workspaces is directly linked to the bottom line.
In the modern warehouse, the efficient processing of customer orders for quick turn-around has always been a necessary requirement for those companies with a customer focus.
With the advent of E-commerce in relatively recent times this is even more critical with new start-up companies wishing to grab a share of the market and those established companies wishing to tap into this rapidly expanding non-traditional market place.
With the overall majority of customer orders being for only one (1) single purchase item, very large customer order quantities are experienced by the product provider daily which invariably requires the introduction of some form of automated order processing and fulfilment system.
This will often involve the use of automated conveying systems to assist the order processors in the pick / pack / processing and despatch operations.
Those companies wishing to introduce conveyor systems can develop over time by starting off with simple or basic manual conveyor additions into the warehouse to enable the picked orders to be handled without the need for operations staff to walk large distances throughout the warehouse picking the goods, and can expand over time into quite large and highly sophisticated automated conveyor based systems that do the routing movement of the picked orders through elements of picking, packing, labelling, scanning , sorting and palletising even up to the point of using robot technology for some of the work elements.
Integrated conveyor systems present the company management with opportunities to obtain quite large efficiency improvements over their existing business practises by the ability to fulfil a much larger order quantity in the same time using the same number of staff, or in some cases by reducing staff numbers within the warehouse, offering significantly reduced labour costs throughout.
Further gains can also be achieved via the technology used in the manufacture and controls used within the automated conveyor system, even to the point of incorporating intelligent conveyor designs that use "run on demand" or "low energy use" components within the design. With power costs increasing exponentially, savings on electricity use by using the low energy consumption technology have been experienced by many users.
