Keep all of your production lines flowing in the same direction: out the door and into your customers’ hands.

Automation is as much about coordination as it is about throughput, efficiency, and speed. Why? Because without a constant, reliable, manageable flow, you might find yourself in over your head.

An automated system designed to maximize workflow efficiency and to minimize labor, the SmartFlex RIVER delivers material-handling and inventory-tracking solutions for shops of all sizes and needs by providing virtually unlimited storage and machine capability.

It can automate the setup of small lots, plan multiple product runs in a single shift, manage and coordinate processes that span the entire shop floor, and much more. Because, at the end of the day, what makes the SmartFlex RIVER unique has everything to do with flexibility.

Start small or go big—the uses for this modular, multipurpose machine is limited only by your requirements and imagination.
