卷Delivers Smooth Operation for World’s Largest Online Retailers

去年,消費者比平常在線花費了900億美元。從電池到生日禮物,人們越來越依賴電子商務來獲取他們需要的東西。Rollon®線性運動技術幫助世界上最大的在線零售商通過自動倉庫快速,高效,安全地填寫這些訂單。

Many of the world’s largest warehouse automation equipment manufacturers have integrateda wide range of Rollon solutionsinto their systems. Rollon, which加入了2018年品牌的Timken公司組合, produces linear actuators and telescopic guides that equip everything from rack-style automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) to automated guided vehicles (AGVs).

當消費者倉庫開始實施內窺裏的學生或通過設施進行自動化,管理和優化貨物流動的過程時,這些應用的領導日期回到了十多年。

“項目項目,我們將我們的電力傳輸專業知識應用於這些係統並與客戶演變,”Federico Banti,Rollon的業務發展經理,物料搬運和物流。“今天我們擁有最強大的技術知識和最靈活的產品係列,擁有90%的解決方案,為每個倉庫的獨特設置定製。”


“In an industry changing this fast, we have to move fast as well. We are focused on understanding the technological innovations ahead of us and growing our product portfolio to help customers grab new opportunities for efficiency and performance.”

Labor and efficiency challenges, solved

自動化材料處理顯著提高了倉庫效率,允許使用垂直空間增加零售商的庫存,而不會增加平方英尺。自動化釋放人們可以為包裝和質量控製角色提高人體工程學和安全性。在今天的勞動力短缺時,需要更少的工人來運營倉庫,這是有利的。

Rollon解決方案對於這些自動化材料處理係統的無瑕疵操作至關重要。在ASR中,多班車沿Rollon®線性執行器係統上下移動以訪問貨架。班車使用配備Rollon®伸縮載滑的臂,以從架子上挑選儲物室。雙臂將儲物單元放在梭子上,返回工人檢查和包裝貨物的包裝站。這是一個高度積極的“舞蹈”,需要一切都是完美的一切。

無與倫比的技術能力產生高性能產品

卷products manage high speeds, repetitive motion and environmental debris to deliver smooth and precise operation, even when loads are heavy. This is made possible by Rollon’s engineering and manufacturing expertise.

Many telescopic rails undergo induction hardening, a heat treatment during manufacturing that creates an extremely tough outer layer of material around a soft core. This enhances the product’s mechanical properties, improving strength and wear resistance.

In telescopic slides with extreme requirements — like reaching 200% of their normal length to retrieve a storage unit — special, customized pins are used to increase durability and fastening.

Banti notes these design elements are the result of observing linear motion challenges across industries, then using that knowledge to create a catalog of standard products that can be efficiently customized.

For instance, when designing linear motion solutions for battery-powered AGVs, weight is a top concern. Telescopic slides must be strong enough to perform, but light enough to optimize power usage and reduce electric motor strain.

“We drew on our experience designing for linear motion in aircraft interiors,” Banti said. “We modified AGV telescopic rails using special machining to reduce weight while retaining the performance characteristics of the steel. It’s a great advantage to AGV manufacturers and their customers.”

卷’s collective knowledge is also reflected in its internally built engineering tools, which help design, select and customize products based on application needs and product life calculations.

進入未來:擴展支持下一代自動化倉庫趨勢

In the next five years, the global market size for warehouse automation is expected to double to $30 billion. One trend significantly influencing future warehouse design is a drive toward more flexible equipment that improves efficiency and helps facilities scale appropriately based on demand. Examples include modular material handling solutions that can be easily reconfigured, and more use of AGVs that can navigate any type of existing floor plan.

卷intends to address those advancements the same way it did in the very beginning — by staying close to customers and expanding its product offering to meet their needs.

In a move to expand its product portfolio and capabilities into larger, heavier-duty automated warehouse applications, Rollon recentlyacquired Intelligent Machine Solutions (iMS)。“收購IMS為我們提供了一個獨特的機會,”Banti說。“從伸縮式幻燈片到龍門,世界上沒有其他製造商在這個行業的產品係列更強大。”

IMS係統使用鋼材,因此它們擅長鑄造運營和飛機等較重應用和汽車生產。組合組合 - 以及它們背後的工程能力 - 將導致在整個設施中融合沉重和輕型需求的客戶混合解決方案。

“In an industry changing this fast, we have to move fast as well,” Banti said. “We are focused on understanding the technological innovations ahead of us and growing our product portfolio to help customers grab new opportunities for efficiency and performance.”
