There are two reasons why you should automate your warehouse. On the one hand, there is human error. In traditional warehouses, errors are common, as people can make mistakes when picking orders or searching for items. On the other hand, the increase in productivity and the speed at which products must be prepared means that manual warehouses are no longer competitive.
Automating your warehouse using barcode or RFID technology is the solution to both of these problems.
One of the most important elements of a warehouse are labels and barcodes. Every day, warehouse operators must identify a large number of products, capture their information and collect it in the WMS. Doing all this work by hand is not feasible and can also lead to errors.
The most efficient solution ranges from label printing to data collection in your WMS. You can identify products automatically by printing on the production line itself. The operators will also capture the data, sending it directly to the WMS.
Depending on your needs, you can use portable solutions for field operators or mobile solutions with up-to-the-minute data. Or warehouse equipment that allows full freedom of movement such as bracelet or ring type equipment. Even the most industrial solutions for the most demanding environments, such as warehouse handhelds, or forklift truck mounted readers.
One of the most effective solutions is to automate the warehouse using RFID technology. The aim is to use radio frequency to avoid errors and improve productivity.
Radio frequency identification is a remote data storage and retrieval technology, the main function of which is to transmit information by radio waves between a tag and a handheld.
It is the ideal solution for warehouses where many SKUs are moved. You can print RFID tags from your own workplace. These tags collect more information than normal barcodes, allowing you to control stock more effectively and to know the traceability of the product in real time.
RFID handhelds will also optimise the reading and collection of data. The operator can take readings without having direct contact with the item and can even read a complete shelf, packs, or pallets.
Tecnipesa will carry out a coverage study and place the Wi-Fi hotspots and RFID antennas in the appropriate places. We will also design the software you need to manage your warehouse efficiently.
In addition, we offer you the option of integrating our new Warehouse Management System (WMS) that will allow you, without large additional investments, to have your stock under control at all times, as well as maximising space and improving the route of the operators when preparing an order.
The RFID Technology Solution will enable you to automate your warehouse and make it smarter. Improve stock control, traceability, productivity and efficiency in your warehouse.
Depending on the characteristics of your warehouse, you will need a specific type of RFID reader.
We advise on the antenna that best suits your needs and we carry out the entire installation so that you have coverage throughout the warehouse and can work without interference.
With this web application you will automate your warehouse to the maximum, and you will have the information completely updated in real time.
