Integration between Ongoing Warehouse and SGA Conveyor Systems

SGA Conveyor Systems builds conveyor-based systems for material handling. Their solutions can be fully integrated into the Ongoing WMS to create an automated flow of material and information. The solution uses the Ongoing Warehouse Automation API, which enables powerful automated logistics processes in the web-based standard system Ongoing WMS.

Example installation: package sorting and measurement

SGA has installed the below conveyor system at one of our customers in Sweden. The conveyor system is used for automatically sorting and measuring packages.

Example SGA Conveyor installation
Example of an installation of a conveyor belt used for sorting packages.

The conveyor system works as follows:

  1. The roller belts move at different speeds to separate packages so a gap is created in-between them.
  2. The package moves through a scanning unit, a scale and a volume measurement unit.
  3. The values are sent to the Ongoing Warehouse Automation API.
  4. The destination of the package is retrieved from the API, which allows the conveyor to automatically forward the package to the correct destination.
