Smart Warehousing Solutions from SAT Technologies Enable Safer, More Efficient Fulfillment Using OnLogic Computers
The Stack Assist Tool from SAT Technologies uses machine vision and laser-assisted stacking instructions.
SOUTH BURLINGTON, VT (JUNE 22, 2021) - With demand for shipping and fulfilment solutions at an all-time high, global industrial computer hardware manufacturer and IoT solution provider, OnLogic (www.onlogic.com), has announced that SAT Technologies (optimizedorderpicking.com) is using OnLogic computers to power their Stack Assist Tool (SAT). The SAT solution combines machine vision, visual display and laser guidance to enable pallet stacking by instruction, resulting in increased productivity, lower costs and higher, safer stacking of products.
"The Stack Assist Tool makes stacking by instruction possible. SAT ensures a smooth process whereby order pickers can pick and stack stable pallets in one flow without restacking, without errors and with minimal training," said Peter Boorsma from SAT Technologies. "Our customers have shared that their investment in the Stack Assist Tool has lowered their overall facility costs by 55%."
SAT Technologies turned to OnLogic for a rugged panel PC solution that could be mounted on an order pick truck in a distribution center, or combined with an Automated Guided Vehicle. The panel displays color coded stacking instructions to optimize the stack, while an overhead laser array indicates the location for the next item.
"Since the SAT is a mobile unit, the computer needs to be able to withstand shock and vibration. Since some distribution centers can get quite cold, they also needed a solution that could withstand extreme temperatures," said OnLogic Account Manager, Andrea Dekkers. "The large screen and durable design of our rugged panel PCs made them an ideal choice."
The two companies recently shared the story of how SAT Technologies is integrating OnLogic hardware, and how the Stack Assist Tool is being deployed by SAT Technologies' customers to improve warehouse operations.
"OnLogic as a hardware partner offers a number of key advantages: they are quick with their technical information, the service is complete and when we have technical difficulty OnLogic is a partner who works with us in our search for solutions," said Boorsma. "Their service and communication is top notch. They are a valued partner to us and would be for any software or hardware business."
