I am wondering if anyone has a good idea for a theoretical problem. Let's assume I have 3000 different designs printed on paper. I have about 100 pieces of each design. Each design is not a regular print you could print with a laser printer or inkjet printer. Every design is stored in a little shelf so we have 3000 shelves with each 100 paper sheets in it. Each day we have to pick designs from different shelves. We run from shelf 150 to 356 and then to 788 (just an example). This task uses a lot of time so I was wondering if there might be a clever possibility to automate it.
My thoughts so far: I use a linear system with 3 axis. A little mount with suction pads grabs the paper sheet from the shelves and dispenses it to a certain place.
Maybe this is not clever, maybe there is a better solution.
I appreciate your ideas and thoughts on this issue.
