Material handling equipment is utilized across all industries and comes in all shapes and forms. System requirements range from bucket conveyors unloading a barge to overhead power and free systems moving a car to high-speed sortation systems moving the mail. The control requirements for these systems can be quite different but in general, they all utilize the same tools for getting a product from point A to point B. The key to success is to move the product in an expected time frame with expected results. Other factors that play a key role in the performance of the systems are the ability of the control system to identify problems and provide direction for a quick recovery by the user. PREMIER has a track record for providing these types of control systems for customers across multiple industries and has proven results.
