Mettler-Toledo Eyes Bigger Pie in Indian Automation Market Targeting Transport & Logistics Industry
Mettler-Toledo India offers complete automation in Indian transport and logistics industry with the following procedural automation steps alligned with its complete in-motion data capture sulution - TLX MultiCapture™, designed to target the Indian transport and logistics industry -
1. Implement an Efficient Identification Method
The first step is deciding how to identify the items you handle. Your decision will depend on how much information you want a label to carry. Matrix labels contain more data than barcodes but require camera scanning, which is often a larger investment. RFID may be the future of identification but is only an option in an extremely organized flow. Decide at what stage labelling should be done. The leaner you want your process to be the earlier labelling should be done.
2. Decide on Operational Flow
To optimize operational flow, consider throughput and the items to be conveyed. The distance that an object must travel will determine what type of solution you need. If long conveyor lines are needed, automatic data capture is most appropriate, if you operate in a small warehouse environment, with goods moving over less distance, static measuring may be the best option. Independent of flow, strive to capture data within the same area, in as few operations as possible.
3. Decide on Necessary Data
The more data captured, the better control you have. However, not everything needs to be done in one step. First, identify the specific challenges in your operation and the data that is essential for efficient operation. If insufficient time for measurement is a key issue, then automatic dimensioning and identification will be a fundamental step in your process. If miss-sorts and conveyor jams affect you, you should consider a solution that offers parcel positioning.
4. Establish a Procedure for Handling Rejects
On a fully automated line, there will be a certain number of no-reads and there are different ways of dealing with them. Your system can be configured to stop for human intervention if a label is un-readable. A reject line can be set up to allow all un-readable items to be diverted. If speed is your priority, you may decide to let the no-reads pass through, but do all you can to make sure you have equipment employed that offers the highest possible read rate.
5. Final Layout and Infrastructure
Based on your chosen data capture method, supporting IT infrastructure should be selected. It is recommended that customer data be stored in a certified database. Dynamic systems are often slowed down by the slow response of a computer host system; make sure that you spend enough time and effort on building up an adequate IT resource.
