What is LFS MFC?

The LFS MFC stands for "Warehouse Management System Material Flow Controller" and is a material flow computer. This is primarily used in logistical storage.

The steady increase in automation in warehouses and transshipment centers means that intelligent management and control systems are becoming increasingly important. They control and monitor storage units and conveyor systems. They analyze workflows to optimize logistics processes.

What advantages do LFS MFCs offer?

An LFS MFC enables a flexible and safe material flow, which has many advantages. These include:

  • Connection of conveyor systems (regardless of manufacturer)
  • Integration in warehouse management software possible
  • Independent control and monitoring of conveying equipment
  • Picking orders can be processed

The ability to combine systems from different manufacturers and control them via the material flow controller opens many doors. And this is not limited to a single warehouse. LFS MFCs also work across multiple locations and can coordinate and measure the flow of materials between several warehouses.
