Dematic Debuts Automated Mixed-Palletizing System

Dematic, a supplier of material-handling systems for factories, warehouses and distribution centers, has introduced a new order-fulfillment system, dubbed AMCAP, for Automated Mixed Case Palletizing.

It was designed to accommodate a growing need for the more efficient assembly of pallets, Dematic said. The system is especially well-suited for grocery retailers, beverage distributors and producers of consumable products, it added. AMCAP supports pallet unloading at destination, typically a retail store. By arranging cases on the pallet in a specific sequence, the system optimizes shelf restocking. AMCAP pallets are typically assembled with the bases arranged by family group, to correlate with the appropriate aisle in store. Automation allows cases to be stacked more densely and higher on the pallet, reducing freight costs and maximizing the use of trailer space, Dematic said.
