With the advent of the era of machine substitution, coupled with the needs of business development, the development of food companies has become more and more obvious for intelligent transformation, and it has clearly proposed standardized management, collaborative efficiency and intelligent manufacturing. As an important carrier in the smart logistics system, unmanned forklifts can realize unmanned handling operations, improve production line efficiency and reduce enterprise costs.
Recently, Multiway Robot joined hands with a food company giant in Hunan to jointly build a smart logistics system and realize the launch of smart packaging and paving. With the unmanned forklift as the carrier and the mobile micro-upper system, the tailor-made smart logistics solution realizes high precision, high efficiency and unmanned handling.
Project scene: After the incoming materials are placed, they are transported to the loading according to the rhythm of the production line;
Handling materials: carton packaging materials;
Handling process: incoming material storage area → automatic door (information is not open) → production line;
Project Pain Points:
1. According to the needs of the production line, the materials are ordered from time to time, and the efficiency of manual collaboration is low;
2. Personnel work in two shifts, repetitive manual operations, and the cost has risen year after year;
3. There is no storage location information management on site, and the efficiency of picking up and finding goods is slow.
1. Unmanned handling improves man-machine efficiency
The packaging materials of the food company's production line are located in different areas, and they need to be transported from the material storage area through the automatic door to the production line. Manual handling alone is inefficient, and there are many repetitive tasks. With the continuous expansion of the business, the cost continues to rise. In this regard, according to the on-site environment, Multiway Robot customized the pallet-type unmanned forklift MW-T20 to adapt to warehouse conditions, realize unmanned handling, and improve operation efficiency.
2. Real-time monitoring, efficient operation
There is no warehouse location information management on the customer site, and the personnel work in two shifts. It is inefficient to pick up and find goods manually, and if there is insufficient inventory, it is impossible to know the first time. In this regard, the Multiway AMR robot is introduced into the on-site management system to monitor the inventory information and location status of the auxiliary material warehouse in real time. Through the tray gesture recognition function, the overall fault tolerance rate is improved, the accuracy requirements for manual placement of the trays are reduced, self-correction is realized, and the labor intensity of manual alignment is greatly reduced.
3. Flexible plan, adapting measures to local conditions
In response to the irregular business needs of the production line, and the handling process needs to pass through an automatic door with no information open, this will undoubtedly increase the difficulty of unmanned handling. In response to this doubt, a flexible and intelligent logistics solution is customized to meet the irregular needs of customers. Call the material demand, and import the universal docking module at the same time, realize independent communication with the automatic door, and realize free and automatic passage.
With the development of intelligent technology, labor costs are increasing year by year, and the advantages of intelligent automatic trucks based on unmanned forklifts/AMRs are more prominent in intelligence, flexibility, safety and operational efficiency. In terms of product definition, product development, methods and methods, the micro-robot adopts the strategy of system platformization and algorithm universalization. In addition to the necessary strict quality inspection, the unmanned forklift/AMR does not require every vehicle to be debugged. The self-calibration system, the self-adaptive system, ensures the flexibility of delivery and the reduction of cost, which can further feedback on the more value provided to customers.
