What is Material Handling?
Material handling is the movement, protection, storage and
detection of materials throughout manufacturing, distribution,
consumption, and disposal processes. Managing the movement of packages, containers, or products at specified
speeds with a variety of controls and displays becoming increasingly
important to conserve both space and power, while safety and sensor
intelligence capabilities fulfill industry requirements for protection
and information. It encompasses a collection of
movement and processing equipment with the purpose of gathering,
analyzing, and communicating information supporting a number of key
business activities including:
The material handling industry is segmented into either complete turn-key systems or integrated systems, where a combination of devices are designed and packaged into one system. Integrated systems are typically designed by either in-house engineers or system integrators. TE offers a wide array of multi-medium interconnect and cable assemblies to solve material handling needs for material handling subsystems.
