Making a Move on Material Handling Automation
As humans continue to move out of material handling operations and more automation moves in, an ever-increasing amount of material handling process data is becoming available to manufacturers. To assist manufacturers in affordably automating material handling processes and capturing, monitoring, and controlling critical material handling data, OEE Datawatch offers the UAK1000 Universal Automation Kiosk.
The UAK1000 uses powerful PLC and PC hardware and robust SCADA software to help manufacturers manage their material handling data and to realize significant improvements in productivity without the high upfront cost of engineering and schematics that are associated with traditional automation systems. Manufacturers can also quickly and affordably tie in additional kiosks downstream for complete, start-to-finish monitoring and control from raw material to work in progress (WIP) and finished product.
