Material handling systems are vital elements on the shop floor that could make or break an organization’s bottom line. Today, concerning the sharp increase in ecommerce and intralogistics needs, the market is witnessing a growing demand for solutions to better manage high flows with simple, low maintenance, and highly reliable material handling systems. That said, finding the right experts in the field can be difficult, especially ones that thoroughly understand the minutia of flow management. Fortunately for organizations all across the globe, Italy-based ECS maintains over 30 years of experience in the areas of material handling and has developed a slew of immaculate railguided vehicles (RGV) that promise robust movement, improved inventory management, storage, and protection of various goods and components throughout a facility.

Currently exporting 80 per cent of its products to countries worldwide, ECS manufactures turnkey systems for industrial handling and storage. The company recognized how challenges like poor energy conservation, undesired level of capital expenditure, and slow scalability were curtailing the success of several enterprises. As surprising as it may seem, many industries still employ traditional forklifts or extensive conveyor lines within the production or material handling workflows. ECS, with its vast experience in combating such factors that negatively affect productivity, offers the most efficient and cost-effective RGV solutions, each tailored to meet a client’s individualistic needs. “Optimizing the costs and time of an intralogistics operation is one of the keys to business success,” expresses Enrico Magagna, Business Development Manager at ECS. The intralogistics expert’s team of veteran professionals is equipped with the best mechanical, electrical, and software resources to innovate solutions that conform to each client’s handling needs.

Furthermore, the organization’s after-sales maintenance and remote assistance services play a crucial role in ensuring the longevity of the RGVs with minimal cost and downtime.

The company’s transport systems consist of self-propelled trolleys that run along electrified rails, moving variable loads weighing anywhere between 25 to 5000 kilograms. The RGVs are automated and supplied in the Overhead and Floor Mounted version. They can be connected quickly to different areas in warehouses and facilities to deliver goods from their production to receiving stations. ECS’ solutions empower clients with improved workflow efficiencies that move pallets from one side of a building to the other expeditiously—even in temperatures as low as -30° Celsius. Such capabilities are extremely desirable in the Food, Tyre, Pharmaceutical, and Automotive industries and more. “These features, carried out in a dynamic and flexible manner, are particularly appreciated by our clients for all logistics processes within their factories,” states Magagna.

To best elaborate on the company’s expertise, the case study of a client that wanted to eliminate the 24 hour-long operation of their trucks every day to transport materials from the production facility to a new storage area. They reached out to ECS for a solution that achieved their intralogistics objectives quickly and affordably. At this juncture, team ECS set up overhead lines— spanning 2.5 kilometres—that connected not only the two locations together but the distribution centre as well. And on these electrified rails travelled 50 trolleys that transported various goods expeditiously. The intuition of placing the RGV at an overhead level was optimal: forklifts and other operations on the shop floor are not objected, thereby establishing a new level of workflow efficiency.

ECS has helped many companies overcome various intralogistics challenges over three decades; and, as the world moves towards continually increasing product demand, the company is gearing up to meet and exceed the expectation of the market. Moving forward, Magagna and his team intend to work with various system integrators and consultant companies to bolster the innovation of intralogistics solutions on an international level.
