Intralogistics automation: improve efficiency and throughput

Maximize OEE and cost-effectiveness with automation for intralogistics from Balluff


In intralogistics, where the movement of raw materials to finished goods demands fast throughput, precision and traceability, efficiency is not just a goal, but a necessity. The automation of key processes such as warehouse management, inventory management and material handling, including conveying, transporting, loading, unloading, sorting and order picking, is critical to increasing availability and uptime as well as reducing costs and ultimately improving Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).

Traceability, speed and quality in each area of intralogistics automation

Automated storage and retrieval systems: improving efficiency and accuracy​

Efficiently managing inventory and material movements is a persistent challenge for businesses in various sectors and virtually every industry. The solution lies in the adoption of automated storage and retrieval systems, like dynamic shuttle systems and rack feeders, which are now often supplementing or replacing manual warehouse processes. These systems not only ensure precision and high throughput but also offer transparency through innovative identification solutions and software-driven control options.

By harnessing Balluff's cutting-edge technology, such as advanced sensors, networking and identification technologies, you can revolutionize your storage and retrieval systems. The integration with IO-Link streamlines communication between sensors, actuators, and control systems, resulting in improved inventory management and optimized overall operational efficiency, ultimately boosting your bottom line.

Transportation and conveying solutions: advancing material flow

Streamlining automated intralogistics processes, including transporting, sorting, loading, unloading, picking, buffering, storage and stowing, is crucial for optimizing throughput and availability. Efficiently conveying materials from point A to point B is essential, especially with decreasing batch sizes due to growing individualization concepts.

Balluff's innovative identification technologies and software enhance your automated transport and logistics system, ensuring accurate goods tracking. Furthermore, Balluff provides advanced sensors, cables, and network technologies that optimize internal logistics processes, from load carriers to controllers and conveying solutions, to maintain high availability and throughput.

Automated sorting and picking systems: correctly assembled - whether partially or fully automated

Reliable sorting and picking - whether for production or customer orders - is one of the most complex and labor-intensive processes in intralogistics. To save costs and improve quality, picking and sorting are increasingly being partially or fully automated.

Balluff automation components and solutions for intralogistics help you to implement such projects efficiently, focusing on cost optimization in identification and quality control as well as in transport and marking in your picking and sorting logistics. Even in semi-automated logistics or manual work environments, there is great potential for savings, e.g., through collaborative robots or pick-to-light systems that reduce the workload of employees.
