Material Handling: Storage and Retrieval

Storage and Retrevial Hero

Storage and Retrieval

How items are stored and retrieved is critical to the flow of products and goods throughout a warehouse. With the trend towards greater automation in the warehouse, facility managers are looking for ways to add intelligence to their equipment and systems to improve performance and increase overall efficiency at their site.

Banner sensors, safety equipment, LED lights and indicators, and wireless products improve the efficiency and effectiveness of warehouse equipment and systems and support increased automation. Our products are used for everything from dimensioning packages for storage space optimization to collision avoidance on forklifts, shuttle systems, stacker cranes and overhead crane gantries. Used together, our sensors, indicators and wireless products allow facility managers to remotely monitor the performance and health of equipment throughout a warehouse. To protect personnel from injury or accident, we offer one of the most comprehensive lines of safety equipment in the industry, including light curtains, e-stops, and safety controllers that simplify safety device integration and management.

Bin Picking for Order Fulfillment
Bin Picking for Order Fulfillment

In a book packing warehouse, the rack above each carton of books is equipped with a one-piece EZ-LIGHT PVD pick-to-light sensor. A worker fills orders by selecting the quantity of each book specified on the packing slip. To make it easier for the worker to find the cartons from which to pick books, the PVDs above those cartons are illuminated. The PVD detects the workers hand in the carton to verify that the title was picked.

Barcode Reading
Barcode Reading

The iVu BCR barcode reader scans pallets as they are loaded, identifying that pallets are complete. This ensures that operators know what truck or warehouse location the completed pallet will be directed. After the iVu BCR barcode reader verifies the pallet, the pallet is taken to the warehouse for storage or loading dock for shipment. Banner Engineering’s iVu BCR barcode reader decodes a variety of barcodes, including DataMatrix, Code 128, Code 39, Codabar and many more.

Depalletizer Guarding with Muting
Depalletizer Guarding with Muting

Banner’s Type 4 EZ-Screen with a muting is ideal for depalletizer stations with robots because the screens ensure safety standards are maintained while allowing for a free flow of pallets, increasing throughput. The muting allows for a pallet skid to be transferred without shutting down the conveyor or robot cell, helping optimize product flow throughout the distribution center. There is a timing function set at a constant speed that allows for a continuous flow of pallets.

Banner’s time-of-flight LT7 laser sensors provide long-distance ranges up to 250 m with a visible red laser spot for easy alignment. Depending on range needed, a diffuse or retroreflective time-of-flight laser sensor can be used. Retroreflective LT7 laser sensors provide ranges up to 250 m and diffuse LT7 laser sensors provide long-range background suppression up to 10 m.

Shuttle Tote Positioning
Shuttle Tote Positioning

SB12 positioning sensors are placed on multishuttles in order to confirm that product stays within the safety zone and confirms a product is positioned correctly to avoid hanging off the “safe zone.” SB12 sensors are cost effective and have cross-talk avoidance as well as light immunity, making them ideal for a warehouse environment. The compact size and easy installation makes them easy to place on multishuttle.

Retrofitting for Pallet Detection
Retrofitting for Pallet Detection

WORLD-BEAM QS18 Universal Voltage sensors are mounted along a conveyor to detect the presence and position of passing paletts. These sensors can be connected to either AC or DC power, allowing them to operate in large conveyor applications already using AC power without requiring a separate power supply. In addition to the universal voltage, this sensor also has a popular 18 mm barrel shape, multiple mounting options, and a rugged IP67 housing to withstand harsh environments. Having multiple power and mounting options in a single sensor allow for a quick and easy retrofit on the line.
