GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN – Dematic, a global supplier of integrated automated technology, software and services to optimize the supply chain, has a new solution for customers looking to save space and improve product handling.

The new Roller Non-Contact Accumulation (RNCA) Decline allows systems to accumulate and decline items on a single conveyor, reducing cycle time.

The RNCA Decline combines accumulation, transport and decline functions, which provides reduced cycle times in a smaller space. This can benefit any operation, but is especially ideal for urban areas where space is expensive and same-day delivery is expected. In addition, improved positioning, tracking and control of containers prevent collisions, which limits product damage and saves money by preventing expensive re-work and returns.

“As a business partner, Dematic is committed to assisting customers meet current challenges while anticipating future ones,” stated Jim Brumels, mechatronic product manager at Dematic.

“The RNCA Decline is a great example of how we worked with our customers to create a solution that increases order fulfillment speed today and maximizes space efficiency for tomorrow.”
