AUTOMATED SOLUTIONS FOR THE FLUID POWER INDUSTRY
Common Challenges in the Fluid Power Industry
The Fluid Power Industry encompasses businesses and technologies focused on the use of fluids (liquid or gas) to generate, control, and transmit power.
These systems are found in a vast array of applications, from the smallest medical devices to the largest construction equipment. Companies in this sector face several challenges in terms of material handling and inventory management:
Complex Inventory Management
The diversity of components, such as valves, tubes, seals, and connectors, each with different specifications and applications, makes inventory management complex.
Storage of Diverse Components
These industries require storage solutions that can accommodate a wide range of component sizes and shapes, from small fittings to large tubes and cylinders.
Maintaining Product Quality
Many hydraulic and pneumatic components are sensitive to environmental conditions like humidity or contamination, necessitating careful storage to maintain product integrity.
Quick Access to Parts
Rapid retrieval of specific components is crucial to minimize downtime in critical hydraulic and pneumatic systems maintenance.
Tracking and Traceability
Companies in the fluid power industry need to efficiently tracking components through their lifecycle, from storage to deployment, for quality control and regulatory compliance.
Adapting to Technological Advances
As new technologies emerge, companies in these sectors must update their inventory management to include new types of components, while efficiently handling the obsolescence of older parts to prevent dead stock.
