Efficient Material Flow Solutions for Production Logistics

White Paper

Automating the Last Mile in Manufacturing

Demand for labor tightens as the economy grows and the pool of available workers shrinks. Automation is an obvious answer — the question is, where and how?

Dematic helps manufacturers manage the specific needs of the production environment, including effective use of floor space, just-in-time strategies, balancing/sequencing of material flow, labour ergonomics, and high system uptime.

Each Dematic solution created for Durable Manufacturing has a modular, scalable design and strategic management software that provides real-time control, visibility, and operational insight.
