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 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.

Why Experience Matters When Buying Pallet Racks in Milwaukee

Not all pallet racks are made the same and not all of them are going to be right for your Milwaukee warehouse. When you are setting up a new warehouse or need to re-equip your current one, you need to find the pallet racks that are going to meet your needs as well as stay within your budget goals. One of the best ways to do this is to work with an experienced warehouse designer like DAK Equipment in Milwaukee.

Working with an experienced warehouse designer offers several advantages to your company:

  • More efficient warehouse design. Our team has been designing warehouses for years and we know how to set up a warehouse in the most efficient way possible. Because of our experience, we can quickly identify your warehouse’s strengths and weaknesses and use them to build the best design possible.
  • Cost saving potential. Our team works with hundreds of clients all over the country, setting up their warehouses and supplying them with the material handling and warehouse equipment that they need. We also help many of these companies get rid of their old equipment, meaning we often have second-hand pallet racks that could be the perfect fit for your Milwaukee warehouse. That could mean a huge savings to your business.
  • On-going support. Setting up a warehouse isn’t a one-time happening. Your warehouse should evolve with your business and as your business’s needs change, the needs of your warehouse will, too. Our team can help you meet the challenges of your warehouse as time goes on with new solutions, system upgrades, and equipment that makes your warehouse run better than ever.
  • Help from beginning to end. An inexperienced team may not understand how to properly see your warehouse project through from start to finish. Our team knows the importance of planning, execution, and follow-up when it comes to your warehouse. We have teams that are ready to help you every step of the way.

Working with an inexperienced warehouse equipment and design company when purchasing pallet racks and other material handling supplies could actually end up costing you more time and money in the long run. These companies could suggest pallet racks that aren’t quite right for your business, making your employees work harder to get your orders out the door and slowing down the process inside your warehouse. That can lead to losing money on your bottom line. You’ll end up spending more time on your pallet racks, too, working to fix the issues and replace your equipment.

Instead of risking your time and money, talk to the DAK Equipment & Engineering team about your pallet racks and material handling equipment. We’ll make sure that you get everything that you need at a price that fits your budget and a system that helps your team work faster than ever. You can contact our project managers for help by giving us a call or contacting us through our website. We’ll connect you with a project manager that works in your area and will help you see your project through from beginning to end.

How Modular Offices and Mobile Computing is improving Chicago Warehouses

We’ve installed a lot of Chicago modular offices in warehouses. These semi-permanent structures are helping warehouse managers get closer to the action. It’s the best of both worlds! Instead of having a desk in the middle of a busy warehouse floor, they get some privacy, and instead of being tucked away on a second floor or in another building, they can be right there in the middle of the action. It’s a great place to do paperwork, have meetings with your team, and concentrate on making plans to improve your warehouse.

Many warehouses are now pairing modular offices with mobile computing to give their warehouse managers even more freedom. Thanks to the advances in mobile computer, warehouse managers don’t need to be tied to their desks to keep an eye on inventory, cost, or other computer-based information. Many warehouse systems are allowing managers to get the information they need right on their tablets or smartphones, so they can have information at their fingertips while connecting with their team out on the floor.

Of course, no manager can be out on the floor all day every day, and for those times they need to concentrate on the daily operations of their warehouse, DAK Equipment will make sure they have the modular office they need. Give our project managers a call today to learn more about our modular offices and how you can have one built that perfectly fit your warehouse. Contact the DAK Equipment team through our website or give us a call today!
