          • Systems

              • Receiving

              • Optimize Operations Right from the Start

                The labor crisis is shrinking your business profits every day, and manual inventory management produce unpredictable fulfillment results. In the end, your receiving strategy affects customer satisfaction and loyalty…and your bottom line.

                Automated receiving systems reduce your dependence on labor and reduce the high operating costs of manual processes. With Dematic receiving systems, you have predictability from the time inventory enters your facility, setting the optimal course for every order that leaves your operation.

                  • Receiving

                  • Whether bringing raw materials into a production facility or finished goods into a distribution center, efficient management of your supply chain starts at receiving.

                    All incoming materials are verified and checked for quality and quantity before being sent to high-density storage. Dematic iQ software ensures inventory accuracy, provides real-time inventory visibility, and intelligently routes the inventory for efficient retrieval. Dematic Receiving solutions support a range of manual to fully automated receiving and putaway of your inbound goods.

                    How Receiving Works
                    Incoming pallets (unit loads) and cases are unloaded and verified against manifests and purchase orders.
                    Items are inspected for quality, quantity, and damage.
                    If necessary, items are removed from original packaging (detrash) and placed in totes for storage in high-density buffers.
                    Items are directed to the most optimal storage location or dispatch area (cross-dock).

                  • Returns Handling

                  • Dematic returns handling solutions process items quickly and efficiently so you can restore salable merchandise to primary or short-term storage, depending on demand.

                    Dematic software guides each process and reduces the labor associated with processing inbound handling materials. It also facilitates inspection and reconditioning workflows before items are returned to stock. Finally, the software directs the workflow and ensures that items are returned to inventory accurately — whether for storage or sending back to a store.

                    How Returns Handling Works
                    Operators open the incoming packages and check each item against the expected receipt.
                    Items may undergo a detailed inspection and reconditioning (repack, labeling, etc.) before they can be returned to stock.
                    Salable products are returned to the primary storage locations or, if in high demand, placed in high-density short-term buffers for rapid fulfillment of incoming orders.

                  • Cross-Docking

                  • When cross-docking, Dematic solutions eliminate costly, space-intensive storage of inbound products. Whether you’re moving pallets of product or sorting high volumes of incoming cartons/cases to outbound trailers, Dematic has the cost-effective solution for fast, accurate cross docking.

                    Dematic software fully automates sortation by adjusting equipment speed depending on demand and volume. The result is an energy-efficient solution that reduces equipment wear and minimizes labor costs.

                    How Cross-Docking Works
                    Inbound cases are unloaded from incoming trailers and placed on induction conveyors.
                    Cases are scanned to identify destination.
                    Dematic high-speed sortation systems route the cases to shipping lanes.

                • Transport

                • Seamless. Safe. Reliable. Optimizing Your Facility for Today and Beyond.

                  Maintaining seamless facility performance and keeping product moving quickly, accurately, and safely are important for all organizations. The success of your business depends on knowing where your items are and where they’re going, and then trusting that the technology you’ve invested in will protect your goods from damage.

                  It’s not always easy to monitor what’s happening within your facility’s four walls, but automation provides that critical visibility while also simplifying your processes and reducing errors. With automation, you can streamline your operations, gain immediate value from your investment, and reduce the number of wasted movements in your facility.

                    • Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs)

                    • AGVs are automated industrial trucks used to lift, rotate, and shift materials in your facility. Dematic AGVs fetch and carry loads to and from racking, store and retrieve in block-stacks or deep-stack lanes, and deliver and collect at conveyors or process machines. They safely and securely increase process efficiency and improve business profitability — all without human intervention.

                      Typical AGV applications include:
                      Transport from receiving to production/warehouse
                      Transport between production areas/work-in-process buffers
                      Transport between production areas and warehouse areas
                      Stacking and storing (very narrow aisle, wide aisle and drive-in racking, deep stacking, block storage)
                      Roll handling
                      End-of-line automation (packing machines, palletizers, stretch wrappers)
                      Transport in consolidation and dispatch areas

                    • Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs)

                    • AMRs are industrial robots that lift and transport materials in your facility. Dematic AMRs safely navigate around people, equipment, and inventory by reading QR codes on the facility floor or by using Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) to sense surroundings and obstructions.

                      Typical AMR applications include:
                      Moving pallets between functional areas (receiving to storage, picking to shipping)
                      Line-side supply and delivery
                      What is the difference between an AMRs & AGVs?
                      AMRs are similar to AGVs, but with two major exceptions:

                      AMRs typically move lighter loads faster.
                      AMRs are more adaptable, especially when selecting routes and avoiding obstacles.
                      AMRs open up expanses of warehouse space typically consumed by conveyors.

                    • Conveyors and Sorters

                    • Conveyors
                      Dematic conveyors provide simple operational capabilities that keep distribution centers running at peak capacity for daily on-time fulfillment.

                      Typical conveyor applications include:

                      General routing and transport of product
                      Pallet transport

                    • Embedded Towline

                    • Embedded towlines automatically carry goods to destinations using carriers connected to an in-floor chain conveyor. The Dematic Embedded Towline system follows a fixed route based on clearly defined floor markings.

                      Typical embedded towline applications include:

                      Repetitive forklift truck transport over long distances

                      Support for very high throughput operations

                      Continuous transport between different zones

                      Transport of heavy and difficult-to-move loads

                      Transport between different levels


                  • Storage

                  • Secure Your Stock, Reduce Damage, Optimize Space, Increase Productivity and Accuracy

                    Whether for heavy unit loads like pallets or smaller loads like totes and cases, storage is a fundamental requirement of every distribution center.

                    Yet storage is a paradox. On one hand it adds value by providing a critical buffer between your processes and your customer. But on the other, it adds significant real estate, building, and inventory costs.

                    Dematic offers a wide range of storage solutions designed to minimize and mobilize your stock. We can help you organize and control inventory on pallets, cartons (totes), and garments-on-hangers. No matter the scale of your facility, the type of inventory, or how it's packaged, our storage solutions offer your business important advantages.

                      • Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems

                      • AS/RSs help organize stock, access it quickly, optimize space, and reduce reliance on labor.

                        A typical automated warehouse storage system includes a high-density shelving system and robotic load handling devices, which move products in and out of shelving. For pallets, this is likely to be a storage-retrieval machine (SRM) such as the Dematic 1200-U. SRMs are also referred to as cranes. For smaller items stored in cartons or totes, this could be a miniload AS/RS or a multishuttle system.

                        Switching to an automated warehouse storage system from a forklift or fully manual system can vastly improve product handling efficiency and provide a safer warehouse.

                      Effective order fulfillment has become a top priority for any company dealing with a high volume of e-commerce orders, major labor constraints, and the continual need to do more with less. Companies now are turning to technology to optimize their current operations and improve their inventory management to meet consumer demand.

                        • Case Picking to Conveyor

                        • Innovative waveless technology to guide operators by voice commands or by lights. Operators dynamically fill orders based on actual real-time conditions, ensuring accuracy, and reducing fulfillment time from hours to just minutes. Picks are made from pallets and/or case-flow racks in high-density, multi-level pick modules to maximize available space.

                          These systems are best suited for space-constrained operations that handle high volumes with large numbers of SKUs and work well in both ambient and temperature-controlled environments.

                        • Case Picking to Pallet

                        • Computer-generated voice commands guide operators to make quick and precise selections, instructing what to pick and where to send it. Dematic Software guides operators through every step, reducing idle walk and search time.

                          These systems are best suited for mid-volume operations with large numbers of SKUs and work well in both ambient and temperature-controlled environments.

                          General Workflow:

                        • Layer Order Picking
                          Mixed Case Palletizing

                        • Reduces the amount of labor required to build pallets with multiple layers of different SKUs. Robotic layer picking automatically creates compact, high density, store-friendly pallets. Dematic Software ensures fast, seamless, and error free picking.

                        • Products

                            • Automated Guided Vehicles - AGV Systems

                            • Whether your goal is reduced labor costs, higher order throughput, increased accuracy, greater productivity, or all the above, you’ve come to the right place. Automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are driverless robots used to transport materials in warehouses, distribution centers (DCs), and manufacturing facilities using designated pickup and delivery routines.
                                • Counterbalance AGVs

                                • Counterbalance AGVs have counterweights at the rear of the vehicle to eliminate the need for support legs around loads (such as with Straddle AGVs). This allows the lift mast to be integrated at the front, which keeps the AGV clear of the load. Counterbalance AGVs typically replace repetitive manual forklift tasks for all single, double, or quadruple pallet applications.
                                • Straddle AGVs

                                • Straddle AGVs are designed to replace repetitive manual forklift tasks. They have support legs that straddle loads with various fork designs and a slim body that provides a tight turning radius. This design allows Straddle AGVs to work in a diversity of areas and carry multiple pallets.

                                    Customers want their orders fast, omnichannel fulfillment is a competitive advantage, managing high return rates is expensive, and labor is hard to come by. These and other realities are all creating new and unique pressures within the order fulfillment environment.

                                    Dematic Pouch Sorter is a flexible storage system that consists of pouches suspended from rolling adapters running in a track. Each pouch carries a single item, which can be identified by its radio frequency identification (RFID) tag. Items of various types can go into the pouches, including folded garments, shoeboxes, accessories, books, and general merchandise.

                                    Items are inducted into the pouch system, which sorts, sequences, and delivers those pouches and hanging items to the packaging station for consolidation and further processing.

                                      • Loading

                                      • Items are loaded into a pouch manually or automatically, with the option to manage oversize items in dedicated bags.
                                      • Buffering

                                      • Long loops (up to 100 meters) hold inducted inventory and circulate continuously. Inventory can be new items or returned items that have been inducted back into the system, and returned items stay in the buffer until needed or processed back to storage.

                                        Items can be stored as eaches
                                        Buffers optimize loading and packing station performance

                                      • Transport

                                                  The persistent labor shortage, rising labor costs, and the e-commerce boom are all making warehouse operators reassess how to manage product palletizing and depalletizing. Operations can no longer rely on adding manual labor to increase throughput for production, fulfillment, and shipment. They must look to automation to boost work efficiency, reduce operational costs, and enhance productivity.

                                                  Dematic Palletizing and Depalletizing systems provide flexible, scalable, labor-saving solutions that address the complexities of distribution operations. They range from semi-automated workstations to comprehensive robotic modules.

                                                    • Powered by People: Semi-Automated Ergonomic Workstations

                                                    • Low-cost systems that provide safe, efficient throughput

                                                      Ideal for distribution operations that ship a large volume of cases of varying size and shape for direct-to-store delivery, and ideal for compact spaces. These ergonomic systems automatically lower the work surface to minimize lifting and increase performance.

                                                      Automated with Dematic Software, semi-automated ergonomic workstations can:

                                                      Organize cases in sequence so operators can simply slide them onto pallets or roll-cages
                                                      Organize the palletizing pattern to maximize the number of cases on a pallet, ensuring more product per delivery
                                                      Anticipate factors such as crushability and adjust picking operations to preserve product integrity — as each level is built, the pallet or roll cage automatically lowers and is stretch-wrapped to ensure load stability
