When it comes to warehouse automation, the right mechanical components are key to maximizing the efficiency of your operation, increasing order accuracy and fulfilling customer demand. From shuttle systems to automated storage, our linear guides, actuators and telescopic rails provide high-speed, reliable performance in a wide variety of warehousing systems—improving the overall productivity of your automation efforts.
We develop and deliver both standard and customized rail systems that meet the needs of many warehouse applications—from drawers to automated storage systems. Thanks to their induction-hardened raceways, high load capacity and self-aligning capabilities, our linear and telescopic guides and actuators enable precise, smooth robotic handling—all while helping you maximize warehouse space.
When designing and configuring an automated warehouse, you want to keep the system as light and compact as possible. Depending on the size of your load, there are two common types of automated warehouses: In lighter applications, aluminum structures can handle loads up to 100 kilograms, while steel structures are good for heavier loads more than 100 kilograms.
Most traditional warehouses use forklifts with limited height, while automated warehouses make use of vertical space. Choosing the right components is key to making sure your automated warehousing system optimizes logistics management. And linear actuators are a good place to start.
