One-Stop Shopping for Material Handling Solutions
Recognizing the need of many customers to purchase an integrated material handling system from one source, this manufacturer started providing complete systems some time ago and as a result recently organized a Global Systems Engineering Group, with expertise in the company’s core technologies of feeding, vacuum conveying, weighing and controls. So far, the group says it has successfully delivered hundreds of successful custom engineered solutions to the pharmaceutical and other industries at company sites around the world.The Systems Group has extensive experience supporting customers with the FDA validation process and ATEX or NEC requirements for hazardous areas. Capabilities range from small skid-mounted systems that can be shipped from the factory to large projects, such as pharmaceutical dispensaries, requiring custom PLC integration and on-site supervision of installation.
