The increase in demand for general use products throughout the pandemic, as well as the surge in online shopping, is causing a number of company leaders to actively assess warehouse operations and address logistical dilemmas with robotic automation to meet on-time delivery. With the majority of distribution centres currently operating manually with a limited labour pool, the value of integrating flexible easy-to-use robots with compatible storage bins is increasingly more prevalent.
PALLITE® recognizes the importance of automation within the warehouse environment and are working with several robotics suppliers to facilitate these requirements with both standard tailor made PIX® unit storage solutions for both Goods-to-Person (GTP) and Collaborative (Co-bot) autonomous mobile robots (AMRs)
The standard PIX® family of storage bin units are all mounted on a skid that can easily be adapted to allow GTP AMRs to efficiently and safely pick up and move the units without damage to either the unit or the inventory it contains.
‘The robot segment for the automated material handling equipment market continues to dominate the market size for installed automated material handling equipment. As it is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.0% from 2021 to 2026, company leaders that hesitate to implement advanced technologies, including robotic automation, run the risk of falling behind in today’s high-mix, low-production industrial landscape.’ (www.mhlnews.com)
