Logistics & Fulfillment

Over 30 Years Increasing Efficiency for

Material Handling & Fulfillment Solutions

Looking to increase efficiency in locating and marshaling components and materials within the production environment? Fighting a labor-constricted market? Are orders coming in faster than the human workforce can handle?

Midwest Engineered Systems provides automated material handling solutions that will keep logistics and fulfillment operations throughput running smoothly for years to come. Robot automation improves efficiency, accuracy, safety and flexibility in all aspects of material handling at warehouses and distribution centers which reduces labor costs, human errors and operational risks in those environments. 

By transitioning to robot automation, logistics operations can optimize their processes, increase their productivity, and meet the changing demands of customers and markets. Automation systems can seamlessly integrate with Warehouse Management System (WMS), Warehouse Execution System (WES) and Warehouse Control System (WCS).

Automation Applications

  • Palletizing and Depalletizing
  • AS/RS Buffer Systems
  • Conveyance and Sorting Solutions
  • Code Scanning Systems
  • AGV and AMR Integration
  • Case Packing Operations

Warehouse Storage & Retrieval

Our automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) can store materials not only in an efficient manner, but it allows in production environments to quickly manage materials as needed. The system does this by cataloging materials and their locations by how they integrate into the production process. Our material storage and monitoring system can become a central hub for the factory: with both the tooling and materials in the same location and an overarching management system to run it. The MWES AS/RS buffer system allows for the collation and management of asynchronous production processes and helps keep production efficiency high by retrieving materials, tools and finished parts without needing human help. Also, material arrival and removal data can be harvested for production performance analysis.

Packaging & Palletizing Operations

While speed is a factor of the products and packaging involved, MWES’s standard palletizing system is designed to operate at rates at or above similar manual operations. Some performance highlights of the system include up to 20 boxes per minute stacking rate with up to a 500 lb. layer weight. the system can operate on taped, stapled, or strapped corrugated boxes, as well as many shrink-wrapped and able to pick layers as short as 2 inches in height.

Warehouse & Distribution Center Conveyance

Midwest Engineered Systems provides a wide range of conveyance options. We specialize in automated package handling systems from start to finish, including design, integration, conveyor control systems, and retrofits. Our conveyor systems are designed to handle items at high speeds and with high precision. When you combine automatic weight-scale verification with code tracking, you have greater quality control and complete digitally recorded traceability for each product or shipment.
