New York, Oct. 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report “Global Forklift Industry” – https://www.reportlinker.com/p05798622/?utm_source=GNW
Self-aware, self-optimized, self-configured equipment with the ability to wirelessly communicate with each other; advanced networking; real-time controls; more closer alignment of business management and plant floor activities and supply chains; additive manufacturing are few of the disruptive smart factory trends currently underway. Among these, “automation” lies at the heart of the smart factory concept. Almost like the beating heart, automation provides the foundation for the creation of knowledge-embedded manufacturing operations. Automating labor intensive operations is the starting point for automation, and as the most labor intensive process in manufacturing and warehousing, material handling is at the bottom of the automation pyramid. Defined as the movement of products and materials throughout the manufacturing process, material handling is labor intensive and expensive. Benefits of automating material handling include reduced human role in unproductive, repetitive and labor intensive tasks and the ensuing freeing up of resources for other core activities; greater throughput capability; better space utilization; increased production control; inventory control; improved stock rotation; reduced operation cost; improved worker safety; reduced losses from damage; and reduction in handling costs.
Forklifts are an essential piece of material handling equipment. They are powered industrial trucks used for moving large quantities of materials around the plant floor and assembly lines and also for loading goods onto delivery trucks. Used in the manufacturing industry for over 50
