Material handling

Material handling is the movement, protection, storage and control of materials and products throughout manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, consumption, and disposal. As a process, material handling incorporates a wide range of manual, semi-automated and automated equipment and systems that support logistics and make the supply chain work. Their application helps with:
  • Forecasting
  • Resource allocation
  • Production planning
  • Flow and process management
  • Inventory management and control
  • Customer delivery
  • After-sales support and service
A company’s material handling system and processes are put in place to improve customer service, reduce inventory, shorten delivery time, and lower overall handling costs in manufacturing, distribution and transportation. KUECKER LOGISTICS GROUP is a leader in the materials management solutions business!

Our services!

Services

Kuecker Logistics Group, Inc. is a turnkey systems integrator providing logistics management solutions to businesses all over the United States. We can guide you from the planning stage through test and debug, along with after sale service and support.
1. Planning and Purchasing
KLG's sales representatives provide an average of 18 years logistics management solutions industry experience to our clients. Our objective has never been to just knock on the door and hope to sell equipment and services. We pride ourselves on being able to offer valuable guidance toward finding the best solutions for our customers. We know every company we work with has plenty of choices when deciding who they want to do business with. We provide innovative logistics management solutions ideas and a vast knowledge of industry products and practices in order to facilitate productive meetings with solid analysis. At KLG, we feel this sets us apart from other companies in our industry.
2. Design
KLG has been on the cutting edge of designing material handling systems for many years. Our design department constantly works with the latest version of AutoCad. This ensures the ability to utilize existing layouts as well as develop detailed three-dimensional views of a complex system. We have created an extensive library of three-dimensional materials handling products. These assist in system layout and development. Each project no matter the size is created in 3D and produced in color. This simplifies and eases understanding and helps keep the planning process running smoothly.
3. Project Management
Our project management department takes a team approach to all system projects.  A lead manager is assigned to every project. This is the customer's primary point of contact. This person is your go-to for every question or concern. Our director of project management and your sales account executive are also involved from the beginning to the end of the project. We feel with this approach, all details are covered and each customer has multiple resources to communicate with as the project proceeds.
We use Microsoft Project to produce detailed schedules. This ensures everyone understands the overall timeline in the logistics management process and their individual role in accomplishing each step. Continuous assessments of those timelines, as well as the actual installation details, are made throughout the project. The lines of communication are always kept up between all parties to make sure each project runs smoothly. After all, project logistics are what we do best -- ours for you, our customer -- and yours for your customers.
4. Mechanical Installation
KLG has a staff of trained personnel who work on the installation of systems as well as custom fabrication of specialty items and service-oriented contract work. In addition, we have excellent working relationships with some of the best mechanical and electrical installation companies in this industry. The lowest bid is not always the best solution and we are well aware of this philosophy. Our number one priority is to always produce a high-quality installation which creates a satisfied customer and we know this will not happen without the right people on the job. Although portions of the installation process may be subcontracted out, the project management and design of a system are always done internally. KLG manages and assumes responsibility for all projects from start to finish.
5. Maintenance, Service, Spare Parts
KLG has a department devoted to keeping logistics projects fully serviced after the sale. Our Field Support Service Team is composed up of uniquely experienced and talented logistics project professionals, each of whom provides a full spectrum of support services. They ensure the system provided by KLG will operate smoothly and consistently, providing maximum production through the years.
The Field Support and Service Team's commitment is to provide a proactive, customer oriented resource which is always available to respond immediately to your needs. Our logistics management services are designed to maximize the productivity and utilization of your system through its entire life. We are constantly striving to better understand and fulfill your needs by keeping you current on the latest service capability for your system.

Retrofit systems and your business!

Advantages of Choosing a Retrofitted Inventory Management System

There are a number of benefits that can be gained when selecting a retrofitting solution to fulfill the needs of your company.

1. Cost-Effectiveness

The primary advantage that many companies look at when making this decision is cost. Through the retrofitting of an inventory management system, a company can take advantage of updated technologies without the full expense of developing a solution that consists entirely of brand new components. Depending on the scope of the inventory management system, these savings can range from thousands to millions of dollars.

2. Repurposing Equipment

In a retrofitted inventory management solution the companies existing equipment can be re-used or equipment that has been lightly used in another operation can be integrated into the solution.

3. Gaining Efficiencies

Retrofitting allows individual elements or the entire inventory management system as a whole to be easily optimized for maximum efficiency.

4. Adaptability

The flexibility of being able to adapt machinery to accommodate new or different products or processes is a benefit that meets the unique requirements for many companies, manufacturers and distributors.

The Robots are coming

Robots That Pick Up and Sort Objects Created for Simplifying Warehouses

Researchers have developed a robot that can pick up and sort objects to help improve warehouse efficiency.

Sorting and organizing may not always be the most difficult tasks, but they can certainly get tedious. While it has been difficult in the past to teach machines to do that task, researchers at MIT and Princeton have developed a robot that can do it just that. In the future, it could be used for things like warehouse sorting or cleaning up a disaster area.
The team first trained the robot how to determine the best way to grip an object. They showed it bins of various items and then demonstrated which of four main grasping behaviors was the best option for a particular object. They did this over and over again, labeling which attempts were successful and which were not. Eventually, they plugged all of the information in a deep neural network. 
Once the object is gripped and lifted out of the bin, the robot then has to figure out what it is. In their setup, the researchers have a set of cameras that take pictures of the object from all sorts of angles and those images can then be compared to a library of other images the robot has access to. Once it finds a close match, the robot then moves the object to another bin, based on what the item is.
At the Amazon Robotics Challenge last July, the robot was able to successfully grasp objects 75 percent of the time and it correctly classified each novel item it was presented with.
