Oakland Park, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/13/2016 -- Manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler authored the feature article reporting on how Hytrol's Pivot WMS gathers order information from the customers' system and provides instructions to the conveyor control system (CCS) regarding how to route products as it moves on the automated material handling system. Pivot Warehouse Control System (WCS) has been installed in many operations because customers commonly request that the product complement existing information systems without duplicating functions managed by other systems. This keeps the cost low and reduces risk by decreasing the implementation complexity. The WCS was highlighted in the recent issue of Robotics and Automation News magazine.
The WCS communicates with the print and apply labeling equipment to generate and validate that the proper label was attached to the shipping carton. This critical step facilitates the logistics as the product moves outside the building. Connecting the information gathered from the WMS, CCS, weighing system, cubing systems, and rate shopping software is vital when sorting products to the correct lane assigned for the carrier.
