Taking Up Less Space with Your Conveyor Systems

Space in most warehouse is at a premium. Warehouse managers are forced to constantly assess their current space usage and look for ways to maximize it. Sometimes that means putting in a mezzanine level, rearrange their industrial storage racks, or going without new equipment that could take up too much valuable space. If you’ve been putting off the installation of a conveyor system because you are concerned it’s going to take up too much space in your warehouse, DAK Equipment & Engineering has great news.

 

We Can Help You Save Space

Industrial conveyor systems don’t have to take up a lot of room in your warehouse. There are several things you can do to get the conveyor system you need installed without sacrificing your space.

 

Use a manual system.

Some non-powered systems take up less space because you don’t have to make room for motors and command centers. Don’t write all powered systems, though; some are more space-efficient than you might think.

 

Elevate your conveyor.

Just like a mezzanine level can help make use of the space over your head, a conveyor system can do the same thing. Powered systems can provide lift to move products up from the warehouse floor, transport them across the warehouse, and take them back down to floor level again.

 

Consider what you are saving.

While you are going to take up some space with a conveyor, you may be saving space elsewhere. Are you eliminating pathways that will no longer be needed for human access? Are you eliminating cart storage by moving things automatically? You might actually be gaining space.
