Material flow controller

What are material flow controllers?

A material flow controller is used in warehouse logistics to control, analyze and monitor storage units and the conveyor equipment used. For this purpose, the LFS MFC continuously collects information such as motion data and analyzes it.

A material flow controller LFS MFC is basically a computer that forms the link between the warehouse equipment and the central management software. It can also be used to control and monitor fully or partially automated racking systems. Data can also be collected from other conveyor technologies.

What tasks does a material flow controller perform?

A material flow controller LFS MFC fulfills several tasks in the warehouse. On the one hand, it can be used to control and coordinate the entire material flow of the warehouse.

The LFS MFC has many advantages over other warehouse management and control systems:

  • Flexibility in the networked trades, as systems from different manufacturers can be networked and controlled centrally
  • Practical when modernizing a warehouse, as the material flow controller can be quickly integrated into the existing structures
