Just like travel time can cut into the profits in your warehouse, so can the number of touches a product experienced before it goes out the door. The more your team has to handle an object, the greater the chance there is for human error in processing and damage to the product. Not only that, a high number of touches indicates an inefficiently run warehouse, and that means you are losing money. Conveyor systems could be the solution that you need.
We recommended automation through conveyor systems as one of the ways you can cut down on travel time within your warehouse. Likewise, they are a great way to cut down on the number of touches on each order. The right conveyor system can move products through the warehouse or along an assembly line and get them where they need to go without being handled by staff, who can then, in turn, focus their energies on other projects. Conveyor systems do automatically what you would normally otherwise depend on skilled labor to handle, losing you money in the process.
When it comes to the right conveyor systems, you’ll have plenty to choose from when you work with DAK Equipment & Engineering. Our project managers can gather information from you about what and how you’d like to automate your materials handling and then they’ll get to work finding you the best options.
