The automated material handling system provides a total process solution for moving highly fragile food product through multiple process operations into bulk storage for temporary holding prior to final packaging. The system features a process rate of 12,000 pounds per hour, as well as an NTEP-certified weigh system to ensure a weight accuracy of ± .01% of the tote's 4,000-lb. capacity. Conveyor and container routing is directed from a single, menu-driven HMI. The system-wide control, communication, monitoring and data reporting is integrated to the facility's central control system architecture.
