The development stage of warehouse shelves

Warehouse shelf industry, so we must understand this industry. As the saying goes, as the saying goes, "seeking things in your place" is the truth,


Manual and mechanized warehouse stage:


 At this stage, the transportation, storage, management and control of materials are mainly realized by manual and auxiliary machinery. Materials can be moved and handled by various conveyor belts, industrial transport vehicles, manipulators, cranes, stackers and elevators. Materials can be stored by rack pallets and mobile racks. Materials can be accessed by manually operating machinery and can pass through limits Switches, screw mechanical brakes and mechanical monitoring equipment operate. Mechanization meets people's requirements for speed, precision, height, weight, repeated access and handling, and real-time and intuitiveness are obvious advantages.


The second automatic storage stage:


Automation technology plays an important role in promoting warehouse technology and development. Since the end of the 1950s, automated guided vehicles (AVG), automatic shelves, automatic access robots, automatic identification and automatic classification systems have been developed and adopted one after another. By the 1970s, handling equipment such as rotary racks, mobile racks, and lane stackers have all joined the ranks of automatic control, but only the partial automation and independent applications of each device are called automation islands. .


With the development of computer technology, the focus of work has shifted to the control and management of materials, requiring real-time, coordination and integration. The communication between computers, data collection points, mechanical equipment controllers and between the main computer can summarize information in time, and the warehouse computer can record orders and arrival time in time, and display inventory. Planners can easily make supply decisions, and managers can grasp supply and demand at any time.


The application of information technology has become an important pillar of warehouse technology. By the end of the 1970s, automation technology was increasingly used in production and distribution. Automation islands need to be integrated, thus forming the concept of integrated systems. In the integrated system, the organic cooperation of the whole system makes the overall benefit and the adaptability of production greatly exceed the sum of the independent benefits of each part. As the center of material storage in the computer integrated manufacturing system, the integrated warehouse technology has attracted people's attention. The integrated system includes people, equipment and control systems.


Three stages of intelligent warehousing:


Continue to research on the basis of automated warehouses, realize the integration with other information decision-making systems, and develop in the direction of intelligence and fuzzy control. Artificial intelligence has promoted the development of warehousing technology, namely intelligent warehousing. Intelligent storage technology is still in the initial stage of development, and the intelligentization of storage technology in the 21st century will have broad application prospects. In the early 1970s, China began to study three-dimensional warehouses using roadway stackers. In 1980, China's first automated three-dimensional warehouse, developed by Beijing Institute of Machinery Industry Automation and other units, was put into production at the Beijing Automobile Manufacturing Plant. Since then, 3D warehouse has developed rapidly in China.


Although warehouse shelves have gone through these three stages, it does not mean that each stage is a new change that is abandoned. According to our analysis of the market demand of Teng shelf, the development of these stages is only an extension of shelf functions, and these shelves are still widely used in various fields.
