Why choose an automated material handling system over a manual system?

Manual material handling refers to using physical force to lift, move and store inventory. Manual material handling systems generally utilize human or animal labor to push, pull, lift, lower, carry, hold and restrain various items.

On the other hand, automated material handling employs robots and other devices to perform all these tasks. This can be done by a single piece of automated equipment or with multiple pieces of equipment, such as sortation systems, stackers, conveyers, totes, bins, automated guided vehicles, vertical lifts, trolleys and more.

An automated material handling system will offer your organization multiple advantages. In comparison to manual systems, an automated system is more accurate, more agile, and simpler to scale. You can carry out multiple tasks at a time with an automated system, and automated systems tend to have higher productivity in comparison to manual systems, as they rely on computerized automation rather than a human workforce. Automated systems will also optimize your storage space within warehouses since they allow the use of vertical ceiling clearances. Automated systems are also way less likely to cause on-the-job injuries among workers. Due to these benefits and more, many organizations are implementing automated material handling systems vs. manual material handling systems.
