The impact of automated conveyor equipment on modern logistics warehousing

    With the need of high speed and highly automated development of the modern logistics and warehousing industry, fully automatic intelligent three-dimensional warehouses are being used more and more. As an important part of the fully automatic intelligent three-dimensional warehouse, the automatic conveying equipment demonstrates its unique superiority in the logistics storage and storage.

    According to its functions, the automatic conveying equipment can be divided into the inbound conveying line and the outbound transportation line. The inbound storage line quickly and accurately distributes the pallet containers transported from the inbound storage yard to the storage platform of each lane, and then The stacker puts it on the shelf. The delivery line is the pallet container that is taken out of the stacker and sent out to the warehouse, and then transported out of the warehouse by the conveyor equipment. In some logistics and warehousing enterprises, when the circulation of the inbound and outbound pallets is not too large, a storage line can be used together with the inbound and outbound conveyor lines, so that the inbound and outbound operations are carried out in succession.

    In addition to the two basic functions of warehousing and outbound operations, automated conveyor equipment adds some other functions to the logistics warehouses of different natures and uses to form a more complete and efficient automated conveyor equipment system. For example, if there is only a part of the goods in the pallet container in the warehouse operation, the section with the picking and restocking function should be set on the outbound conveyor line. In addition, if it is necessary to carry out the operations of packaging, weighing, palletizing and inspection before the warehousing operation, it is required that the inbound storage line and the shunting of these operations be matched or connected to the next equipment.

    The most commonly used mechanical equipment in the automatic transport equipment system is the roller conveyor line and the chain conveyor line. At the intersection of the trunk line and the branch line of the conveyor line, the common transfer machine, lifting platform, universal platform, etc. The division and confluence of logistics. In order to save the area, in the larger automated warehouse, often on the same line, the upper and lower layers are respectively arranged into the storage line and the delivery line. At this time, the elevator is used to connect the upper conveying line with the conveying line on the ground.

    The control requirements for automated inbound and outbound storage are:
   (1) Positioning control: The automatic conveying equipment system can accurately deliver the container to the Kushiro conveyor or the delivery ramp conveyor according to the address of the container. Analog coding is often used to track control.
   (2) Automatic adjustment function of automatic conveying equipment: It can intelligently and automatically adjust the logistics rhythm of the whole warehouse transportation, making the whole conveying system smooth and efficient.
   (3) It can be closely connected with all equipment of the entire automated warehouse and combined with warehouse management to form a complete automated warehouse control system.

    The position detection of the entire automated conveyor system is performed by the photoelectric switch, and the PLC coordinates the control of the delivery of the entire conveyor to complete the high-precision requirements of modern logistics. (In the case of making library control, it should be noted that the goods in the warehouse shall not collide with the goods on the conveyor of the inbound trunk. The general solution is to separate the trunk conveyors from the warehouse and the warehouse.
