Order Fulfillment Accuracy & Efficiency

Manual Handling / Acme Solution

Manual Handling

Manual order-picking processes can be time-consuming and error-prone. Retrieving products from various locations in the warehouse and assembling orders manually may result in delayed shipments and customer dissatisfaction.

Acme Solution

Implementing WMS software enhances inventory management, tracks orders, and optimises picking routes, offering real-time visibility into inventory levels.

Conveyor systems can automate the movement of materials and products throughout the warehouse and between different stages of order fulfillment, reducing manual handling time.

Robots can be employed for order-picking tasks with high precision and speed.

Handling Complexity

Manual Handling / Acme Solution

Manual Handling

Consumer goods come in a variety of sizes and shapes. This can make it difficult to find efficient ways to store and handle them. 

They also often have short product life cycles. This means that manufacturers need to be able to quickly and efficiently move products through their facilities.

Acme Solution

Our conveyors as well as robotic solutions facilitate the handling of diverse products efficiently and smoothly and are adaptable to changing production needs. Integrated 3D Vision & AI Systems for robots or cobots facilitate easy identification and handling products accurately. PLC and software solutions enable following the FIFO principle. 

Space Management

Manual Handling / Acme Solution

Manual Handling

Warehouses often require wide aisles for forklifts to maneuver and are restricted in height due to their reach limitations. Inadequate space utilisation can lead to clutter, disorganisation, and difficulty in locating materials. Increasing and fluctuating demand may require the storage of higher volumes of various products.

Acme Solution

Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems and smart software solutions allow for better use of existing warehouse space, maximising vertical and horizontal storage space.

Manual Handling

Labour-intensive processes such as loading and unloading, palletising, picking, packing, and safe material movement and storage can slow down operations significantly.

Acme Solution

Automating goods handling improves efficiency, and frees up workers for other tasks. Conveyor systems can be used to transport products without the need for manual lifting or carrying. AS/RS help safely store and retrieve items in high-density racks. Robots can be used to perform a wide range of applications, including (de)palletising.

Limited Scalability

Manual Handling

Scalability is a constraint in manual warehouses, making it hard to handle growing order volumes and diversified product offerings.

Acme Solution

Automation solutions are scalable and can be implemented gradually. Conveyor Systems, AS/RS and WMS streamline operations, enhance space utilisation, and accommodate rising order volumes and product diversity. Automated picking robots and packing machines can significantly increase order processing speed.
