L

Due to the unique nature of food products, including shelf life constraints, the food industry demands high accuracy in batch tracking. This necessitates warehouses and logistics to have enhanced timeliness and superior order processing capabilities. Furthermore, heightened safety and quality standards for food products, especially under the impact of the pandemic, have led to more stringent requirements for warehouse environments.

Boosts Grain Storage Transformation, Tripling Storage Efficiency

Amid the normalization of the pandemic, coupled with population pressures and complex international dynamics, the importance of grain storage has become increasingly prominent. How to enhance warehouse storage capacity and efficiency, ensure the stability of grain storage environments, and achieve intelligent warehousing transformation, are pressing challenges for many grain enterprises.

In response to the existing storage model of a major grain storage enterprise, Zikoo Robotics custom-designed an intelligent three-dimensional warehouse transformation project. The company’s previous manual storage model was not only costly in terms of labor but also prone to operational errors. Frequent staff movement in and out of the warehouse disturbed the environmental stability, affecting the quality of stored goods. Additionally, the irregular layout of the warehouse limited usable space, leading to wasted land costs. Therefore, an urgent need arose for intelligent and automated warehouse transformation to achieve cost reduction and efficiency enhancement.

After considering engineering costs, storage density, and flexibility for subsequent upgrades, a four-way vehicle three-dimensional warehouse was designed and constructed. The upgraded warehouse, covering over 600 square meters with a net height of 6.5 meters, comprises about 1000 storage positions and three levels of shelving. It is equipped with three intelligent shuttle vehicles for storage and retrieval operations, along with telescopic belt machines, depalletizing robotic arms, pallet destackers, elevators, and associated conveyor lines, creating a fully automated workflow system.

Project Impact

Zikoo Robotics’ grain storage intelligent warehouse transformation project has maximally met the client’s demands for high efficiency, low cost, high intelligence, and low coupling in warehouse transformation. Post-transformation, the warehouse’s work efficiency has increased threefold, significantly enhancing the enterprise’s storage capacity and operational efficiency.

This project showcases Zikoo Robotics’ precise understanding and response to customer pain points and the high applicability of its self-developed intelligent shuttle vehicle products in the grain storage field, earning customer recognition. Moving forward, Zikoo Robotics will continue its path of independent research and development, enhancing the depth and breadth of its product services, expanding more application scenarios, and empowering the construction of more intelligent, safe, and efficient warehouses.
