Are you looking for ways to improve the efficiency, profitability, and safety of your bulk materials facilities? Apex automation products offer an integrated solution for automation and optimization.
Apex Auto ID module is an add-on to our existing ticketing system that allows for attended or unattended ticketing, weigh-ins and check-ins. Radio frequency (RF) truck tags and/or hand-held RFID cards may be used to quickly identify trucks when entering or leaving the site. The module can communicate with other devices such as loadout scales, gates, and lights, to further automate your processes.
Apex Kiosk provides unattended vehicle identification, check-in/check-out, tare-in/ticket-out, loader notification, auto load, and allows driver input/verification of load information, purchase order number, trailer number, inbound material, and other required information via touchscreen. The Kiosk can also communicate with a variety of input/output devices including traffic lights, site lights, traffic gates, and vehicle position photo sensors.
Apex Asphalt Batch solution efficiently automates the entire batch and load out process for an asphalt batch plant. While the system’s design enables trucks to check-in, load, and ticket without interruption, it also provides the tools to set up, manage, and monitor all of your asphalt batch operations with ease.
Scale Watcher is an integrated solution for providing photo verification of the weighing process. During ticketing printing the module captures a still digital photo of the vehicle on the scale. The ticket information is superimposed on the captured photo. This file provides ironclad proof of vehicle pickup without requiring driver signatures.
Remote Printer Enclosure is designed to house either a thermal ticket printer (with cutter) or a laser printer. When installed at cab height, the driver may pick up his scale ticket after weighing without leaving the vehicle or obstructing other vehicles. A moveable stand ensures that the entire enclosure glides out of the way if bumped.
Remote Displays can be used in conjunction with the Apex Auto ID module to display messages to drivers to assist in knowing where to go and/or what product they will be loading.
