Dematic, one of the leading global suppliers of integrated automated technology, software and services to optimise the supply chain, has announced 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,” commented 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 fulfilment speed today and maximises space efficiency for tomorrow.”
