In general, the automatic storage system (AS/RS) can carry 40-50 pallets per hour in each lane, which is related to the height and width of the laneway, the physical characteristics of the pallet, the high and low space between the shelves, and so on. If the elevator needs to change laneway, the time of single conversion and the frequency of conversion will affect the speed of operation.
Light shelving can be used to store containers. By automatic storage, 80-100 containers can be stored in each lane per hour. If some special equipment is adopted, it will further improve the speed of operation. If the physical characteristics of the equipment and products are allowed, and there is a practical need to increase the volume of warehouse operations, each operation can carry two or more containers.
High speed sorter can pick 20 thousand orders per hour, and some manufacturers even claim higher picking speed. But it is important to note that processing speed is closely related to the size, weight and properties of objects. When the bar code browser is installed on the RF (radio frequency) terminal and connected with WMS, the picking speed can be improved by using RF terminal. Although it is difficult to specify the extent to which the RF terminal improves the warehouse operation, it is easy to see that the operator's activity gets more supervision, more accurate picking, and more real-time information in the picking process.
In addition to the benefits mentioned above, the reasons for the approval of automation can also reduce the dependence on operators, reduce work injuries and damage effectively, and improve the corporate image, especially when there are special needs in the storeroom and the shortage of operators. At the same time, however, there are some objections to automation, including the lack of flexibility in the variety of cargo throughput and types of goods, the lengthy period of the project implementation, and the decline in the quality of the intermediate service in the implementation of the project.
