Linear Motion For Robotic Handling in Automated Warehouses

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.
