The dock “thinks” for itself
The dock “thinks” for itself 23/05/2019 Decentralised Control in Bulk Material Handling

The world of bulk material handling seems easy at first glance: moving, filling, delivering. The art of dealing with a variety of different materials, however, lies in the details, such as the docking and undocking of containers at weighing stations. In the process, crosscontaminations

and the release of dusts can occur. AZO CleanDock prevents this
