Introducing the concept of industrial automation in companies means aiming at improving working conditions and increasing the level of efficiency. Kiwitron, a leading company in the field of Industry 4.0, offers intelligent solutions to innovate the structure of your company.

If up to 2018 the turnover of the logistics automation sector was valued at 27 billion dollars, by 2022 a further growth of 12.6 %. This proves the real impact of the automation systems in the world of work, but also the growing awareness on the part of entrepreneurs on the true value of automated solutions.

In warehouses and logistics systems, the systems that allow the automation of processes are carving out an ever greater application space. This allows companies to remain competitive in the face of competition and the new needs of the sector.

It should be remembered that automation can take over inside a warehouse in different degrees according to the needs. In fact, a process can be fully or partially automated, leaving room for the manual aspect of the work as well. 

Not all companies need to fully automate their warehouse. Sometimes it is sufficient to intervene only in some areas or on some processes (such as the packaging or the storage phases).

Therefore, they correspond to different needs different levels of automation. In general, however, the management of processes and flows can be significantly improved thanks to mechanization and digitalization at all levels of the supply chain. 

What are the benefits of automation and what impact does it have on production?

L'automation of processes can offer several advantages: greater speed and precision in order management, more capacity of storage or availability of goods, optimization of the space in the warehouse and, in general, greater security for workers and products.

In fact, one of the strengths offered by automation in logistics is the reduction of the severity of tasks. Since some more risky actions can be carried out with greater safety thanks to the help of specific devices.

From this point of view, human intervention does not disappear, but is retrained with other support or control tasks.

In general, a high level of automation implies, on the one hand, a less human intervention, therefore greater fluidity and uniformity of operations. On the other, a steady increase in productivity as it reduces execution times and production costs.
