As enterprises’ requirements for management efficiency and cost control move towards high standardization, the optimization requirements for three-dimensional warehouses tend to be highly rationalized, automated storage and retrieval, and relatively affordable intelligent three-dimensional warehouses. The stacker is a derivative of the intelligent warehouse. As a “Hercules” coexisting with wisdom and strength, it is the core lifting and transportation equipment. It has the advantages of saving land occupation and labor cost, quick and accurate operation, etc. The performance of the stacker affects the ability of the intelligent three-dimensional warehouse system, and at the same time, its cost also affects the construction capital investment of the warehouse.
The stacker independently completes warehouse operations by virtue of mechanization and automation, and can easily achieve “first-in, first-out”. With the stacker, the storage capacity per unit area of the warehouse is 4 to 7 times larger than the storage capacity of a single-storey warehouse. There are many types of stackers, such as single-column stackers, double-column stackers, four-column stackers, and rail-type stackers. There are differences between different lifting equipment, and each has its own application. .
The application of the stacker is inseparable from the storage rack. The stacker and the storage rack are arbitrarily assembled together and move according to the commands issued by the computer. The lifting system can be used to store and remove materials very quickly, further improving the work efficiency of the intelligent warehouse. The racks using the stacker need to be given special numbers to each layer, column and grid of the rack according to the requirements, so as to facilitate the stacker to locate and pick up the goods, and to facilitate the record of the warehouse management system in the computer terminal.
The function and structure of the stacker have been relatively mature since the development of the stacker, and the lifting technology of the stacker has been continuously improved and perfected. The stacker saves floor space and labor costs for the enterprise with its own superior performance. The use of stackers can achieve higher positioning accuracy, improve warehouse operation speed, and achieve shorter operation cycles and greater productivity. The selection of various technical parameters will directly affect the operation efficiency and economic benefits of the warehouse, so it is also crucial to select various parameters reasonably.
So, what are the specific advantages and characteristics of the stacker?
1. The stacker can store and store materials quickly, and can use the computer to directly and easily adjust the level of the equipment to enhance the efficiency of warehouse entry and exit operations and warehouse utilization;
2. It can realize remote control, and the operation process does not need manual intervention. The precise positioning function of the stacker facilitates any search of materials, and can access materials in the fastest time, with a high degree of automation and easy management;
3. The stacker has good stability, and in the actual working process, it can ensure that the surface of the material is not easily damaged and reduce the loss rate of the material;
4. The stacker has a load protection function. If the load exceeds the load range, the wire rope on the equipment will play a protective role. In the event of an emergency that needs to suspend the actual operation, it will automatically issue an alarm as a reminder.
The stacker has different operation methods. In order to save the equipment investment cost, not every three-dimensional warehouse will be managed by computer in the warehouse, and there are also manual or semi-automatic control methods.Manual operation is humanIndustrial controlThere is a driver’s desk on the stacker. The driver controls the material information in his hand and operates the mechanical handle or button to complete the actions of walking, lifting, and conveying. Semi-automatic operation means that the driver presses the button of the desired item number on the driver’s desk, and the stacker can automatically complete various actions and stop at the specified item number. or operation button to control.
Fully automatic operation is a mode that realizes unmanned operation. The control panel is installed outside, using buttons or punch cards as instructions, as long as the start button is pressed, the stacker can be remotely controlled to automatically enter and leave the warehouse. Computer control is to set up a ground control panel directly connected to the electronic computer, and input the instructions for entering and leaving the warehouse into the computer for centralized control. While the computer controls the stacker to operate the target material, it performs operations such as varieties and times to implement in-warehouse management. Generally, large-scale three-dimensional automatic warehouses use computer control methods.
At present, the application industries of stackers are very wide, especially in the industries of machinery manufacturing, automobile manufacturing, textile, railway, tobacco, medical and other industries that are more suitable for large-scale intelligent three-dimensional warehouses, and stackers can basically be seen. Rapoo intelligent equipment can customize intelligent warehousing and logistics solutions for enterprises, select stackers of different capacities and specifications according to warehouse needs, minimize the cost of automated three-dimensional warehouses, and achieve the role of fast and accurate access to materials, Help enterprises to accelerate the intelligent upgrade of warehousing.
