Electromagnetic clutch and brake solutions for warehouse intralogistics

The key requirement of warehouse logistics is to accurately and reliably transport a quantity of goods to a desired location, intralogistics is the function of optimising and automating operations within fulfillment and distribution centres. Significant changes in technology have allowed for improvements in these applications, increasing performance and providing both time and cost savings.

Modern warehouse technology offers a variety of solutions to improve efficiency within even the most simple tasks. Order processing, the process in which stored goods are selected from existing stock to form a customer or production order, can be optimised though automated sorting and picking shelves, computer-aided systems such as pick-to-light or pick-by-voice or fully automated robotic system­s.

Typically, electromagnetic brakes and couplings are the most popular option to control the movement within warehouse applications including conveyor belts, roller systems (motor rollers), sorters or gate channels. SG Transmission offers a wide range of electromagnetic clutch and brake solutions which can be customised to suit the specific requirements of any application.
