Bulk Storage and Movement

Bulk Solid Inventory

Changing the market from level to volume

Acompany's inventory is extremely crucial to its operations. But with storage facilities across multiple sites in remote geographic locations, ensuring the accurate and reliable level measurement of bulk solid silos can be a challenging and time-consuming task. As such, businesses need an effective inventory control system that enables them to accurately monitor inventory levels wherever they are.

Measuring your inventory has never been easier and more accurate

Take the guesswork out of measuring the level, volume and mass of your materials

Using cutting-edge and innovative technology, APM has created a unique non-contact, continuous volume measurement system to generate a 3D visualisation of the material stored inside a silo or open bin to deliver real-time, accurate readings of silo content and inventory levels. In other words, you'll have "up-to-the-minute" information wherever and whenever you need.

Real-time information to eliminate financial loss

Steel grain bins are susceptible to collapse due to uneven sidewall loading. Real-time monitoring of volume and allocation of material provides early visual detection to greatly reduce maintenance costs, machine breakdown and material loss.

Optimised inventory control

Accurate volume material measurement dramatically improves operational efficiency and management capabilities, and translates into major cost savings and a fast return on investment. In short, knowing your inventory levels means waste is reduced, deliveries are optimised and the need for costly emergency fills are eliminated.

Enhanced safety with remote monitoring

By allowing managers to monitor the volume of stored materials remotely, we avoid the necessity of assigning maintenance or other personnel to this task, lowering costs and increasing productivity. More importantly, we minimise the risk of exposing staff to harsh conditions associated with certain storage environments.

ERP integration enables informed decision-making

We integrate our solutions with your ERP and other control systems so your production and business managers have access to rapidly changing real-life inventory conditions, enabling them to make informed and timely decisions that go right to the bottom line.
