Technology is constantly advancing for smart forklift trucks that communicate with one other to work together in the most efficient possible way. Research is continuously evolving where engineers are designing intelligent materials handling systems. These research projects are focusing on the design and prototyping of next-generation systems for fleets of autonomous forklifts and materials handling . . .
One of the main principles in every materials handling process is to minimise the amount of “touches” on an item. The less touches that is has, the less time a worker will be on the order meaning a lower cost-per-pick which is of course contributing to a higher totlal throughput. Automation is a key area . . .
Ventilation systems and cleanliness are two things that are imperative to maintain safe working conditions during the pandemic. Checking whether you need to service or adjust ventilation systems, for example, so that they do not automatically reduce ventilation levels due to lower than normal occupancy levels. Most air conditioning systems do not need adjustment, however . . .
