Automated Material Handling FAQ

What are the key reasons companies choose automated material handling systems? How do I choose between a gantry or a robot for my stacking needs?
Labor issues are in the forefront of most automation decisions. Most manual handling jobs are high speed, result in repetitive motion injuries and are undesirable (hard to find workers). Human interaction with forklifts are accidents waiting to happen. Robots, AGV’s and other automation along the packaging line eliminate these labor issues forever.

There are many factors to consider when choosing the type of automation to use as the primary. Robots and Gantries have a lot of overlap, but each has its advantages with certain product sizes and configurations. The list of things to consider is too long to put in this answer, but the good news is MESH offers both and will provide you with an unbiased recommendation.
