Material Handling is the movement, protection, storage and control of materials and products throughout manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, consumption and disposal.
The demands being placed on intralogistics are continuously rising as a result of factors like growing variety, increasing product individualization, reduced in-house vertical integration and rapidly changing production and distribution processes. These difficulties can be offset through the use of partially or fully automated systems and equipment, including automated high-bay stores and operatorless transports. This is already technically possible at today’s stage of development. But these gains are offset by potential losses of flexibility. Given these parameters, a good Material Handling system is one that strikes a balance between flexibility and automation. On one hand, special customer requests are to be addressed to the greatest extent possible. On the other hand, the technical advances of automation are to be exploited.
Inther ensures that you have the right balance between flexibility and automation and therefore always the right Material Handling system.
