With the continuous development of AI and robotics technology, intelligent and automated warehousing has become a key measure to enhance productivity and service experience. From e-commerce to production lines, "intelligent warehousing and logistics" has become an inevitable path and a future battleground. Wellwit Robotics has over a decade of dedicated automation experience as a professional manufacturer of AGV/AMR, and provides OEM and ODM service for clients globally.
Due to the scarcity of land resources and the continuous increase in warehousing costs, as well as the gradual reduction of warehouse operating areas, many companies are faced with the challenge of maximizing warehouse space utilization. In this context, narrow aisle forklifts have become an increasingly sought-after solution for many businesses. Compared to traditional forklifts, narrow aisle forklifts have a smaller turning radius, which can increase storage capacity in warehouses by 30% to 40%, allowing companies to effectively utilize every inch of valuable space.
Unmanned forklifts are fusion of the technology of forklift and AGV. With the help of advanced guidance technology, mapping algorithms, embedded vehicle software, and safety avoidance technology, unmanned forklifts achieve automatic guidance, handling, and stacking functions, thereby realizing automated forklift operations. The distinctive feature of these unmanned forklifts lies in their ability to autonomously navigate and perform handling and stacking tasks, making the operational processes more efficient and intelligent.
With the continuous advancement of Industry 4.0 and smart logistics, unmanned forklifts have become essential equipment in the mainstream application scenarios of the logistics and warehousing industry, playing a crucial role in intelligent warehouse management systems. Compared to regular AGVs, forklift AGVs not only perform point-to-point material handling but also enable logistics transportation that integrates multiple production processes. When unmanned forklifts are used for material handling in intelligent warehousing, the handling efficiency can be improved by 2 to 3 times. Moreover, the unmanned forklift can seamlessly integrate with the AGV scheduling system and the e-commerce warehousing WMS system to achieve fast order response.
Specific features of the WMF1000 from Wellwit.
With the increasing demand for automated handling in the industry, the forklift that integrates stacking functionality with automated guided handling has been favored by enterprises in recent years.
