Handle Unpredictable Markets

Material Handling

Manufacturers are looking for ways to produce and ship product to end users faster, less expensively and above all with increased quality – all while looking for ways to reduce overhead and meet new security and safety requirements. These challenges represent new opportunities for material system integrators, OEMs and their control systems.

The material handling industry covers an unusually wide range of applications and end user sectors. Traditionally, machine builders and integrators in the material handling industry divide themselves into the following categories:

  • Warehousing & Distribution
  • Airport Baggage Handling
  • Manufacturing
  • Bulk Handling
  • Postal & Parcel Delivery

Our range of material handling solutions can improve your customer's operation by finding the optimum configuration of equipment and information technology for an effective material-handling system — a solution that gives you a competitive advantage.
