Why Your Business Can’t Underestimate the Importance of Industrial Shelves

One of the issues many businesses have is underestimating the importance of their warehouse. The warehouse may come last in the budgets and may be a distant thought when it comes to future business planning. It’s important not to underestimate the huge impact your warehouse, the industrial shelves, and the people working on them have on your business! Without an efficient warehouse, your Milwaukee business wouldn’t be able to grow and thrive.

The warehouse is like the heart of your business; it pumps merchandise in and out and supplies your goods to the rest of the world. Just like our own hearts, we want to take care of the warehouse. Keeping the warehouse functioning well is integral to ensuring the rest of the business works well, too. Take care of your warehouse by making sure there are enough industrial shelves for storage, safety equipment for your employees, and space to properly pick, pack and ship merchandise to your customers.

No matter what kind of business you have, if you have a warehouse it’s because you depend on it to get your product out the door and to your customers. Make sure the heart of your warehouse continues to pump with some help from DAK Equipment & Engineering. We offer affordable warehouse solutions for industries of all kinds.

How Automation Works With Your Industrial Shelves

International warehousing trends indicate that more and more warehouses are turning to robotic automation to speed up order processing and meet customer demands. Setting up this kind of automation isn’t something that your business can do overnight, though, and you’ll need to take the time to evaluate your current warehouse industrial shelves, set up, and employee skill sets to determine how to best implement automation in your Milwaukee warehouse. DAK Equipment can help you make sure that you have the industrial shelves that you need for smooth robotic automation integration.

Your industrial shelves and warehouse layout have a lot of impact on your automation success. If you plan on using robotic picking systems, you’ll need to make sure you have shelves that are open and organized enough for the system to work in. You’ll also need to determine if your current layout leaves enough space for robots to maneuver within while still allowing room for your human team as well.

Want to know if your current industrial shelves are going to be a good fit for future automation? Call the DAK Equipment & Engineering team. We can help you evaluate your current setup. IF you require new industrial shelves to pave the way for automation, we can help you find the right shelves for a great price and can even handle the installation for you. Get in touch with a Milwaukee project manager from DAK Equipment for more information. You can call us or reach out to us through our website today.

What Causes Milwaukee Industrial Shelves to Collapse

It is a disaster when the industrial shelves in your Milwaukee warehouse collapse. Collapsing shelves can cause thousands of dollars worth of damage to products and equipment, but even more importantly, they can pose a huge risk to your workers. Knowing what causes industrial shelves to collapse can help you avoid the issue in the first place and be aware of when your shelves are likely to need repairs. These are the most common causes of industrial shelving damage in many Milwaukee warehouses:

  • Overloading your racks. Know how much weight your racks can handle and don’t load them over that amount. The additional weight can quickly start to cause structural weaknesses in your industrial shelves.
  • Forklift damage. The importance of forklift safety can’t be stressed enough in your warehouse. A forklift backing into a rack may leave what appears to be structural damage but could actually be the beginning of a shelf collapse.
  • Buying cheap industrial shelves or racks with reduced capacity ratings. It’s tempting to try to save a few bucks, but when your warehouse experiences a rack collapse you’ll be paying much more in the long run.
  • Improper installation or rearranging racks without a professional. The way your industrial shelves are put together is vital to their performance. Make sure a professional installs and moves your racks to give you the best results.

DAK Equipment offers inspection services that can help you keep your industrial shelves in the best shape possible to avoid collapse, product loss, and injury in your Milwaukee warehouse. Give us a call today to learn more about how we can help!
