Fulfilment Centre / Automated Warehouse – 3PL

Fulfilment centres and automated warehouses are increasingly common in modern times where delivery is expected to be fast and efficient.

 

Such facilities often contain many complex lines that rely on large, dangerous automated machinery to make sure goods are processed as quickly as possible.

 

For this reason, it is highly important to make sure all of these machines are safeguarded in accordance with regional safety standards, both to ensure the safety of personnel and to minimise the risk of downtime.

ASRS Application Guide

Depalletiser and Muting Control System

In this example application, the depalletising robot is safeguarded by a light curtain and a muting system to ensure that personnel cannot be injured when entering the safeguarded space. The example Fortress solution will eliminate the need for an expensive I/O distribution box, greatly reduce cabling costs and combine access control and machine/conveyor control pods into a single device.

Conveyor Systems

Conveyor systems often consist of multiple conveyors that can span large distances across a warehouse, meaning the installation of safety devices needs to be carefully considered to protect employees and avoid huge cabling costs.

Thankfully, Fortress' solution is designed with the specific requirements of large automated warehouses in mind and can be customised to maximise personnel safety whilst minimising installation costs & downtime.

Our daisy chainable, single unit solution includes both access control & conveyor control pods whilst also containing a connection point for external I/O, making installation and operation easy.

Push Internal Release

Gantry Access

There is an increasingly common requirement to restrict access over conveyors, rolling roads, and moving production lines without stopping processes. Often these systems allow access and exit via multiple entryways.

In instances where only access control is required, the push internal release (PIR) can offer a solution in which the mechanical only unit is operated with a key that is held by approved personnel only.
