As enterprises’ requirements for management efficiency and cost control move towards high standardization, the demand for optimization of three-dimensional warehouses tends to be highly rationalized, automated access and relatively economical and affordable intelligent three-dimensional warehouses. The stacker crane is a derivative of the intelligent vertical warehouse. As a “hercules” with both wisdom and strength, it is the core lifting and transportation equipment. Completing the warehousing and warehousing operations has the advantages of saving land and labor costs, and quick and accurate operations. The performance of the stacker affects the ability of the intelligent three-dimensional warehouse system. At the same time, its cost also affects the construction capital investment of the warehouse.
Stackers rely on mechanization and automation to complete warehouse operations independently, and can easily and 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 that of a single-storey warehouse. There are many types of stackers, such as single-column stacker, double-column stacker, four-column stacker, and rail-type stacker. There are differences between different lifting equipment, and each has its own application. .
The application of the stacker is inseparable from the storage shelf. The stacker and the storage shelf are assembled together arbitrarily and moved according to the commands issued by the computer. The lifting system can be used to store and take out materials very quickly, further improving the working efficiency of the intelligent vertical warehouse. The shelves that use the stacker need to be given a special number for each layer, column, and grid of the shelf according to the requirements, so as to facilitate the positioning of the stacker to pick up goods, fixed-point inventory, and facilitate the recording of the warehouse management system on the computer terminal.
Since the development of the stacker, the function and structure have been relatively mature, and the lifting technology of the stacker has been continuously improved and perfected. The stacker has saved the floor space and labor costs for the enterprise with its own superior performance. The use of stackers can achieve higher positioning accuracy and increase the speed of warehouse operations to achieve shorter operating cycles and greater productivity. The selection of various technical parameters will directly affect the operating efficiency and economic benefits of the warehouse, so it is also crucial to choose various parameters reasonably.
So, what are the specific advantages and characteristics of the stacker?
1. The storage and retrieval speed of the stacker is fast, and the horizontal height of the equipment can be directly and easily adjusted by the computer, so as to enhance the efficiency of the warehouse in and out of the warehouse and the utilization rate of the warehouse;
2. Remote control can be realized, and the operation process does not require manual intervention. The precise positioning function of the stacker is convenient for any search of materials, and can take out materials in the fastest time, with a high degree of automation and easy management;
3. The stacker has good stability, which can protect the surface of the material from damage to a greater extent during the actual work process and reduce the loss rate of the material;
4. The stacker has a load protection function, beyond the load range, the steel wire rope on the equipment will play a protective role. When an emergency occurs and the actual operation needs to be suspended, an alarm will be issued by itself as a reminder.
Stackers have different operation methods. In order to save equipment investment costs, not every three-dimensional warehouse will use computer management in the warehouse, and some will use manual or semi-automatic control methods.Manual operation is humanIndustrial controlThere is a driver’s station on the stacker, and the driver controls the material information in his hand and operates the mechanical handle or button to complete walking, lifting, conveying and other actions. Semi-automatic operation means that the driver is on the driver’s platform, presses the button of the required cargo number, and the stacker can automatically complete various actions and stop at the designated cargo position number. The movement of the fork in and out depends on the manual operation lever. Or operate the buttons to control.
Fully automatic operation is a mode of unmanned operation. The control panel is installed outside, using buttons or punched cards as instructions, as long as the start button is pressed, the stacker can be remotely controlled to automatically enter and exit the warehouse. Computer control is to set up a ground control panel directly connected to the electronic computer, and input the instructions of entering and leaving the warehouse into the computer for centralized control. While the computer controls the stacker to operate the target materials, it also performs calculations such as varieties and times to implement inventory management. Generally, large-scale three-dimensional automatic warehouses will use computer control methods.
At present, stackers are widely used in a wide range of industries, especially machinery manufacturing, automobile manufacturing, textiles, railways, tobacco, medical and other industries that are more suitable for large-scale intelligent three-dimensional warehouses. Basically, stackers can be seen. Rapoo Intelligent Equipment can customize intelligent warehousing and logistics solutions for enterprises, select stackers with different capacities and specifications according to warehouse needs, and minimize the cost input of automated three-dimensional warehouses to achieve fast and accurate access to materials. Help enterprises accelerate the intelligent upgrade of warehouses.
