A systems integrator oversees your entire project, making sure your systems work together seamlessly and give you the performance required. They provide expertise, design, installation, onsite support and more. The primary benefit of working with a systems integrator, like DAK Solutions, is that you have one team of experts working for you, rather than individual contacts at several different manufacturers, technology companies and contract houses.

Warehouse Automation
& Conveyor Systems

In a warehouse with a lot of square footage, you want to have a system that supports your productivity, cost, and operational efficiency goals. That means you need to have a system that optimizes material movements and eliminates wasted labor hours on non-value-added tasks. Warehouse conveyor systems from DAK Solutions are one way to do it. Transport, cartons, totes, and entire pallets with systems that range from portable, non-powered conveyors to customized warehouse conveyor systems that send goods throughout your warehouse for storing, retrieving, picking, and packing. By using warehouse conveyor automation, you can free up labor and equipment to handle more skilled labor tasks, allowing the material to flow with minimal human interaction. To view the full list of DAK Solutions’ warehouse automation and conveyor systems, check out the details below.

Our Equipment

Carton and Tote conveyor

The role of Tote Conveyor is to transport boxes, totes and packages between order fulfillment steps. By providing accumulation buffers throughout the process, a conveyor system allows for workflow balance caused by the different processing rates at each step in the process. Accumulation buffers also allow ongoing production during delays downstream in processing.

Pallet Conveyor

Pallet Conveyor is used to transport pallets between order fulfillment steps. By providing accumulation buffers throughout the process, a conveyor system allows for workflow balance caused by the different processing rates at each step in the process. Accumulation buffers also allow ongoing production during delays downstream in processing.

Pick Modules

For high-volume order processing, a Pick Module is a tremendous boost to productivity. Pick Modules integrate pallet storage, carton flow, conveyor systems and other technologies into a turnkey order processing unit that can decrease labor costs and pick times. Serving customers better means a huge competitive edge in today’s markets, and the right order picking systems can help you do just that.

Product loads are moved from pallet storage through the system before being broken into cartons and pieces, where they are sent to carton flow pick areas for processing and shipment. Pick Module pallet storage may include push-back, gravity flow, selective rack, bin shelving, heavy duty racking, and other storage methods.

A Pick Module may be the solution to your warehouse problem if you:

  • Have high order volumes
  • Require maximum order picking throughput
  • Believe cost is less important than gaining a competitive edge
  • Want a technologically advanced distribution system

To draw together the systems required to effectively implement Pick Modules, true systems integration is required. Hundreds or thousands of hours are required for the design and on-site management of the installation and start-up. Highly engineered rack systems, carton flow, conveyor systems with accumulation and sortation, pick-to-light or voice technology, and advanced control systems all must come together as an integrated solution. Lighting, sprinkler, data, phone, trash removal and stairwell systems must be considered as well.

Pallet shuttle

DAK’s toughest challenges are combining high productivity and dense storage. Pallet Shuttle systems (and their many nicknames) excel when it comes to high density storage and automated rearranging and retrieval of pallets.

Although the initial investment can be high, companies can benefit from an automatic Pallet Shuttle system when:

  • High throughput is required
  • High product rotation exists
  • Limited space is available and vertical space can be utilized
  • You have a high number of stock counts and varying consumption SKUs
  • Large number of pallets per SKU

A Pallet Shuttle system is a 24/7, 365-day operator and can in many cases eliminate traditional labor costs and costs associated with labor including, training, lift trucks and maintenance which can drive a relatively short term ROI.

Automated Storage & Retrieval System (ASRS) - Mini Load

To automatically store and retrieve standardized totes or bins, Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems are a proven technology. These systems improve productivity, throughput, operating costs, and accuracy.

AS/RS can completely transform your operation. You’ll benefit and experience relatively short-term ROI by implanting AS/RS when you:

  • Need to reduce labor costs associated with storage and picking
  • Are limited by labor constraints or expertise
  • Have repetitive tasks that can be easily automated
  • Have long travel times for storing and/or picking
  • Need to achieve a better use of space
Automated Storage & Retrieval System (ASRS) - Unit Load

To automatically store and retrieve pallets, Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems are a proven technology. These systems improve productivity, throughput, operating costs, and accuracy.

AS/RS can completely transform your operation. You’ll benefit and experience relatively short-term ROI by implanting AS/RS when you:

  • Need to reduce labor costs associated with storage and picking
  • Are limited by labor constraints or expertise
  • Have high throughput volume with larger/oversized pallets or heavy inventory
  • Have repetitive tasks that can be easily automated
  • Have long travel times for storing and/or picking and palletizing
  • Need to achieve a better use of space
Automation & Systems Integration

Companies are continually challenged to become faster, better and more cost effective. One way to help get there is an increased use of automation in your facility, which requires systems integration to implement.

Automation and Systems Integration go hand in hand in the material handling industry. Automation is defined as the use of robotic equipment for a warehouse or distribution facility process to gain efficiency. Common processes that benefit from automation are order processing, box erecting, carton sealing, picking, packaging, storing and retrieval, sorting and palletizing among others.

Systems integration is the process of using design solutions and technology to ensure automated processes are streamlined, consistent and continuous. A critical step in automation design and implementation is to ensure each system works seamlessly together to achieve the most cost effective and efficient solution–in other words: successful system integration.

Implementation of automation via systems integration has the added benefit of enabling a robust warehouse management system that provides the ability to extract data and scientific knowledge to find answers, identify problems and quickly respond to issues and improve processes.

Automated systems will benefit you if:

  • Simple, redundant tasks and manual processes exist
  • You have a high order inaccuracy rate
  • High labor costs or limited access to labor
  • Throughput rate is slow
  • Increased volume is required
  • You have long retrieval distances
  • Your business has seasonal fluctuations
Vertical Storage Carousel

When security of inventory is a concern, or space is at a premium, a Vertical Storage Carousel may be the solution. Also alled vertical lift systems, vertical lift modules, vertical storage systems, and vertical carousels, these systems secure inventory and control its release carefully.

Companies can experience explosive growth and may or may not have enough capital for facility expansion. Vertical Storage Carousels are a logical solution to optimize the space you have and drive improvements in key operational areas.

Vertical Storage Carousels are best utilized when:

  • Every square meter of space counts and space optimization is required
  • Your inventory requires careful release due to its value or fragility
  • Improvements in storage and inventory management are desired
  • You want to achieve higher order accuracy rates
  • You want to improve throughput without risking damage to inventory

Vertical Storage Carousels make sense, make use of what you have and provide a relatively quick solution to limited space, consistent inventory release and controlling costs.
