WEST CHESTER, OH – Fastems, LLC is pleased to announce that a fully-featured scaled model of its Multilevel FMS System will be exhibited at IMTS 2014, in Methods Machine Tool Inc.'s booth S-9119. Fastems personnel will be on hand to demonstrate and explain the system, along with helping visitors assess whether increasing automation in their companies makes sense, and how different degrees of automation can be achieved with Fastems wide-breadth of automation system offerings.

The company provides a variety of extendable and flexible manufacturing systems and robot applications, including advanced MMS (Manufacturing Management System) controls, stacker cranes, conveyors, loading/unloading stations, pallet magazines and assembly organizers, and raw material stations.

The MMS5 can also be integrated with other manufacturing plant software, such as ERP and MRP systems, and is fully compatible with MT Connect.
