Industrial automation

Industrial Automation Solutions For Over 30 Years

Is your operation running at its full potential? Our industrial automation solutions and picking logistics systems improve efficiency, accuracy and ergonomics. We'd like to introduce an exciting industrial automation solution: an automated picking solution customized to your specific needs.
Creativity and proper application is the key to batch picking and automated picking solutions. At Kuecker Logistics Group, we are experts at implementing many industrial automation solutions like pick-to-light distro lines, batch picking systems, or pick-to-voice. Our experience truly shines, however, in those unique situations that force us to think outside of the picking logistics box.
In addition to offering those standard picking solutions for industrial automation, KLG has been a leader in innovation using put carousels, put to light monitors, light directed batch carts and other unique solutions for our clients.

Automated Storage & Retrieval Systems

Do you think that an Automated Storage & Retrieval System is the right solution to meet all of the needs of your company? The first thing that most companies do when they think about implementing an automated storage and retrieval system is call an AS/RS manufacturer. There are many AS/RS manufacturers to choose from but each manufacturer has different specialties and technologies that they truly excel at.
You will find that some of the manufactures specialize in high speed systems, others in maximizing vertical space, some are better at mini-load systems while others are better at unit load systems. It is possible that a crane based solution is not going to be the right type of AS/RS to meet your needs and a carousel with an inserter extractor is. Maybe a unit load with high density depth capabilities would be the tipping point that makes an AS/RS justifiable for your operation.

Choosing The Right Automated Storage & Retrieval System

Many companies try to provide you with a solution, but sometime it is not always the right one for your automated material handling system. Rather than selecting a manufacturer who is only going to recommend the best solution that "they" can provide you with, why not go to a systems integrator with experience in all types of AS/RS who has access to many of the best products on the market and all types of AS/RS? This is just one of the advantages that you will benefit from when choosing Kuecker Logistics Group to assist you in the implementation of an automated storage and retrieval system that is custom designed to meet all of your specific and unique requirements.

Retail Shoe & Apparel DC

A bit about us:
When receiving a new product in containers, this retailer was encumbered by a totally manual unloading and palletization process, harming the retailer's value chain.  After manually sorting the product and palletizing, much of the product would then be cross-docked by loading the cartons onto a conveyor line to either be transported to a unit sorter or be labeled and sent to the shipping sorter to enhance both speed and the value chain.

Additional Photos:

This retailer worked with KLG to design a system that would provide labeling, partially automate the palletizing and automate the flow to cross-dock or unit sortation to improve the value chain.
After being placed on one of five telescoping truck unloaders, the cartons proceed to a top apply printer and receive either a shipping label or a carton SKU label.  The cartons proceed through a merge and are dimensioned as they are inducted onto the 45 lane sorter. The sorter delivers the carton to a palletizing lane or cross dock divert.  For the cartons to be palletized, the custom WCS program uses the dimension information to provide a stack pattern and layer diagram for each SKU to improve the value chain.  The palletizing graphic is displayed on monitors at the end sorter lanes to assist the operators in building pallets to enhance the value chain.
The system is capable of receiving, labeling and sorting up to 7,500 cartons per hour, improving the retailer's value chain.  Almost half of the cartons received are cross-docked to shipping or to a unit sorter.  All cartons that are not cross-docked are palletized. This system has had proven results in improving the retailer's value chain.
