Conveyor and Material Handling

Pendant’s first conveyor handling project was in 2011, and that year fewer than 3% of Pendant’s projects were conveyor handling projects.

We quickly realized we were good at it, and we were getting great feedback from you, the conveyor systems integrators, and from the end users.

We placed high priority on growing in conveyor handling, and now over 60% of Pendant revenue comes from producing conveyor handling control systems.

That means you will be working with a team of experienced professionals that “get it”. You will be able to rely on us to create a controls system that fits your vision for the project.

Pendant has experience interfacing our control systems with conveying equipment from a variety of OEMs, and we can work with controls equipment from a variety of suppliers, although the vast majority of the systems we produce rely on PLCs from Rockwell Automation or Siemens.

Our specific capabilities include:

  • Manual Sort
  • Automated Sort
  • High-speed Sorting, Merging, and Diverting
  • Scanning – Bar-code, weight, dimensions
  • Pick/Put to Light Interfaces
  • Pick and Pass
  • System Safety and E-Stops
  • WCS/Middleware Programs
  • HMI Customization

Pendant has designed, built, and installed conveyor handling control systems for the following business segments:

  • Parcel Handling
  • Logistics
