Saving money with an automated complete handling solution

posted in: Industry Update | 0

Because of the ever-increasing demand for freight efficiency, materials handling and logistics specialist Industrial Conveying (Aust) Pty Ltd – ICA – design, manufacture and install cost-efficient technology for bulk loading (and unloading) of palletised product into, and out of truck trailers, shipping containers and warehouses.

Applications range across all advanced manufacturing and distribution sectors. Loads are prepared on the loading dock whilst trucks are in transit. Once the truck arrives, the vehicle / container loading time is less than 4 minutes rather than 20-40 minutes using a forklift. Effectively handing the user a competitive advantage in its own industry sector.

These systems are designed to cater for 20ft, 40ft and 48ft containers, and enclosed vehicle bodies. With this technology, the vehicle / container is raised to a correct height to enable efficient loading (and unloading) with powered docks.

Materials handling and supply chain management is much more than just warehouses, trucks and transport.

ICA consider how all these aspects combine to make a complete handling spectrum. By lessening the steps in product handling and the time associated with this, increased profit margins become the end result.

ICA systems increase ‘smart’ utilisation of truck fleets during the loading and unloading process. Applying the latest technologies for I/O interfaces with user friendly HMI controller, making systems Industry 4.0 ready.

Equipment controls are easy to use and minimal training is required. Being robust in design and construction, the technology easily copes with the demands of a 24/7 operation now and into the future.

ICA believe that complete integration is the key to a successful outcome.

Many companies have taken a piecemeal approach, adding solution components over time, yet the entire handling system can be fully integrated in one go to provide a smooth, lasting and very profitable logistics system.
