Robotic induction - robotic singulation

The use of warehouse robots for singulation and induction can limit the need for tedious manual labor and reduce the risk of injury and error. Robotic singulation technology, coupled with robotic sortation processes, can help warehouses improve efficiency and cohesion in their operations.

Robotic mixed de-palletising

Fanuc robots and cobots can handle mixed depalletising, unloading materials of varying weights, shapes, and sizes without interruption. By integrating robotic depalletising solutions into your warehouse operations, you can save time, improve efficiency, and reduce the need for operator intervention.

Robotic piece picking - each picking

Warehouse picking and packing operations require speed, efficiency, accuracy, reliability, and quality control. In order to meet high demands without sacrificing precision or quality, integrating piece picking warehouse robots or cobots from Fanuc can help you achieve higher standards of repeatability and effectiveness without putting more pressure on your operators.

Robotic sortation - put wall sortation

By automating warehouse sortation, you can improve throughput, order accuracy, productivity, and profitability while reducing labor costs. Automated warehouse solutions from Fanuc are flexible and scalable, allowing them to adapt to changing needs and output demands.

Robotic decasing and decanting

Decanting operations typically demand high staffing requirements and can be hazardous to manual laborers, but with warehouse automation solutions from Fanuc, decasing and decanting operations alike can be made safer and more cost-effective. Widespread automation of decanting processes in warehouses is the logical next step after a push for other fulfillment automation solutions.

Robotic palletising

Robots and cobots can make palletising operations more expedient through automation technology. With flexible warehousing robot solutions from Fanuc, your operations can achieve higher levels of productivity through optimized robotic palletising processes and patterns.

Benefits of Fanuc robotic warehousing solutions

The integration of warehouse robotics innovations can improve your operations, from managing inventory to satisfying fulfillment requirements.

Fewer errors

Automation in warehousing limits the risk of human error with programmable, repeatable solutions. Fanuc designs and manufactures warehouse robots for high-efficiency and high-accuracy to increase productivity.

Reduced expenses

Many warehouse operations, such as picking and sortation, traditionally have significant labor requirements, demanding more workers to spend more time fulfilling orders. With the integration of warehouse automation, you will need fewer people to handle menial tasks, allowing you to allocate your employees to more complex tasks and reducing the need for an expansive workforce.

Better customer satisfaction

Warehouse automation allows you to operate on time and on budget, reducing delays and getting orders into the hands of your customers more quickly. With robotic warehouse solutions, you also gain the benefit of increased traceability, which gives customers a sense of control over their orders and allows you to keep a more accurate record of your inventory.

Enhanced warehouse safety

Integrating robotic automation solutions into a warehousing facility can ensure safe material handling processes. Robotic material handling systems can help to prevent accidents by reducing the need for human intervention in tedious and potentially-dangerous tasks.

Advanced efficiency and productivity

Warehouses, especially those operating in the e-commerce industry, have witnessed a massive surge of growth and demand in recent years, increasing the need for innovative solutions. Using robotics in warehouse material handling operations can increase productivity by automating repetitive tasks and optimizing specific processes using warehouse robots and data input.

Enhanced ability to meet high capacity demands

High, continually-increasing demands, coupled with labor shortages, has put a lot of pressure on warehouses. Relying solely on manual labor can jeopardise productivity and result in injuries, delays, and errors. With fully-automated warehouse robots, you can optimize menial tasks and reduce the possibility of error, promoting more efficient fulfillment and ensuring customer satisfaction. 

Space Efficient

Maximizing the use of space within a warehouse promotes efficiency, consistency, and optimizes resource utilization. Vertical integration can help warehouses save valuable floor space, especially with automated warehouse storage robots and retrieval processes.

Economic environment regulation

Climate controlled warehouses are few and far between due to the astronomical costs associated with heating and cooling needs. Strategically using robots and cobots in warehouses can isolate areas that should or should not be temperature-controlled; areas in which only robots maneuver do not need air conditioning or heating, and keeping these areas separate can keep temperature regulation costs down while also providing a comfortable environment for your employees.
