Adaptive Conveying Centers on Efficiency and Scalability According to Alfacon Solutions

Alfacon Solutions coined the phrase, Adaptive Conveying. The hallmarks of adaptive conveying centers on efficiency, versatility, scalability, and reconfigurability. The increased consumer expectations and demand for greater efficiency, economy, and productivity present new challenges and opportunities in warehouse automation. The steady increase over the past decade in e-commerce is driving a large majority of the need for innovation. Consumer expectations for faster order fulfillment and the need to quickly replenish brick and mortar site inventory is driving the demand for speed and efficiency by the distribution centers. As a result. supply chain management and material handling technology have advanced over the past several years, providing higher throughputs, accuracy, and efficiency. These requirements support the need for supporting systems in the supply chain to be flexible.

Adaptive conveying prepares for the future of conveying technology as modular systems allow new technology to be integrated easily into existing systems. Self-aware systems can provide maintenance warnings as well as in some cases make necessary adjustments to minimize maintenance and maximize productivity.

An adaptive solution must always provide for scalability. Whether growth is realized in increased volume, thus increasing the size or scope of the system, or the need to adapt to new technology, the solution must be able to accommodate future needs. The conveying system must be viewed as the foundation in which all other components are integrated.
