Nowadays, the continuous improvement of automation and informatization has promoted the rapid development of various intelligent logistics equipment of logistics information technology and automation technology. Among them, automated three-dimensional warehouse is a representative equipment, which is widely used in automobile, tobacco, medicine, machinery, food and beverage and other industries.
There are also many classification methods of automated three-dimensional warehouse. There are different classification methods according to different classification standards. At present, the automatic storage rack can be classified into three-dimensional and rotary storage rack, which can be classified according to the format of vertical and rotary storage rack.
Classification of automated warehouse
Unit cargo format: it is a common mode. There are lanes between shelves, which account for about one third of the area.
Through type: it is mainly applicable to warehouses with small variety of goods and relatively large quantity. It can greatly improve the utilization of the warehouse.
Horizontal rotation type and vertical rotation type: the shelves of this kind of warehouse can run along the circular route in the horizontal plane or vertical plane. It is mainly suitable for occasions where the operation frequency is not too high. It is very suitable for the picking of small items.
Compared with traditional warehouses, automated three-dimensional warehouses have many advantages:
Improve space utilization
The automatic three-dimensional warehouse can store randomly, cooperate with the system to automatically record the accurate position, and greatly improve the utilization of space. The traditional warehouse must store items by category, which will cause a lot of space to be idle.
Realize material first in first out
The automated warehouse can automatically bind the warehousing time of each batch of materials, and automatically realize the first in first out of materials. However, due to space constraints, traditional warehouses stack materials, resulting in first in and last out, overstock and waste of materials.
Intelligent operation account real synchronization
After the automatic three-dimensional warehouse management system is connected with the ERP system, the whole process automatic operation can be realized. Traditional warehouses are mostly entered manually, which is easy to make mistakes.
Meet the environmental requirements of goods
Through bar code technology, accurately track the flow direction of goods and realize the traceability of goods.
Save the cost of human resources
In the three-dimensional warehouse, all kinds of automatic equipment replace a large number of manual operations, greatly reducing the cost of human resources.
Deal with dead materials in time
The material warehousing of the three-dimensional warehouse system automatically creates accounts without dead materials. It can search for materials that have not been operated in a certain period of time and deal with dead materials in time.
When deploying and planning automated three-dimensional warehouse, manufacturing enterprises should comprehensively evaluate its operation speed, operation mode and continuous working reliability according to their own material characteristics, and customize an automated three-dimensional warehouse solution more suitable for enterprises.
