Grand Rapids, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/19/2016 -- viastore Systems, a leading material handling automation systems and software company, addressed the benefits of manufacturing leaders speaking to warehouse automation specialists. Adam Smelker, viastore customer service sales engineer noted, "A warehouse automation specialist brings an intimate understanding of how certain pieces of equipment—whether from the same OEM or different manufacturers—can (or cannot) be synchronized to work together. Wiring and commissioning programmable logic controllers (PLCs), photo eyes, scanners and integral other control devices, as well as establishing an interface with host software are skills typically outside the comfort zone of most warehouse engineering or maintenance teams. Ensuring that a new or used piece of equipment functions as expected likely requires more functional knowledge than you have in-house."
