Warehouse Automation dramatically reduces costs and increases whole warehouse profitability

WAREHOUSE AUTOMATION... is it right for your business?

Do you consistently have more orders than you can move in 24 hours? If any of these pressure points sound familiar, your warehouse may be your system’s “bottleneck.”

Five “pressure points” of modern warehousing:

  • Smaller orders: from cases to more “eaches”
  • More frequent orders: smaller cycles with faster response times
  • More demands on space: cramped shelves or racks and floor
    space for expansion
  • Pressures for greater accuracy: client penalties for errors
  • Customized Packaging and labeling for clients

 Three strains on todays distribution system:

  • Time: order fulfillment takes too long
  • Labor: payroll is too high in relation to overall costs
  • Space: growth is eating up limited space

ATI’s Carousel Automation reduces time, labor and space costs

ATI has been providing automated value-priced technology to warehouse managers for over 20 years. We specialize in reconditioned, automated, hi-density storage and retrieval equipment such as Horizontal Carousels, Vertical Carousels and Vertical Lift Modules. We also provide specialized middle tier Warehouse Management Software (WMS) enabling management to track inventory in every existing storage modality (shelving, flow rack, carousels, mini-load) utilizing every proven presentation method: Pick-to-Light, RFID, Voice Operated Picking (VOP).

Time saving: Automation shortens warehouse tasks

This breakdown shows employee time typically spent in the most common warehouse duties.

Automation, particularly carousel automation, impacts all of these factors, significantly reducing time spent on picking and stock rotation. Furthermore, the annual physical inventory can sometimes be entirely eliminated.

Labor saving: Automation improves productivity

Carousel Automation means one employee can often do the work
of four. Your employees are freed from time-consuming
checking and rechecking. Picking accuracy is ensured
through self- regulating systems. In some cases labor
savings have paid for automated systems in as
little as a single year.

Space saving: Automation expands shelf space

Carousel Automation contributes high-density storage, which often means converting more space to production. Instead of a costly build-out, companies significantly save money with a much less expensive buildup.

Automation software: Custom software for your system

Smart and scalable software provides accuracy and configurable features to meet
any operating scenario you may have, including custom labeling. Since 1994 ATI
has partnered with EDGE Software,  a leading creator of carousel software, to provide
software customized  for your system and situation.
