Motors in Automated Warehouse Automation

April 11, 2024
The key to ensuring effective, reliable and efficient drive systems is to utilize the most appropriate motor for the equipment. Parvalux offers standard and custom gear motor designs for conveyor belt systems, picking systems, and pallet shuttles.

Warehouse automation has revolutionized logistics and supply chain management by introducing precision, speed, and error reduction in various tasks. AGVs and pallet and tray shuttles form the backbone of these automated systems, performing tasks such as material handling, goods transportation, and storage.

It’s important that the gearboxes chosen have a number of features as standard when being implemented into warehouse automation.

These include:
• Fitting within a small space envelope
• Withstanding high torque density
• Having a low backlash
• Demonstrating high rigidity and radial load capacity
• Being designed to be maintenance-free to reduce downtime
