Tel Aviv, Israel. – March 6, 2011 – Processing magazine gave its prestigious “Breakthrough Product of the Year Award” for 2010 to the BinMaster MLV Multi-scanner System based on APM Automation Solutions’ Ltd.’s innovative line of highly accurate level and volume measurement devices. The MVL Multi-Scanner System is comprised of two or more 3DLevelScanners Model MVL, and extends APM's novel volume and level measurement technology to cover very wide silos (with diameters over 15 meters / 50 feet), domes, and other very large open bins, bulk storage rooms, stockpiles and warehouses. This unique system measures practically any kind of solid material, and effectively provides accurate volume measurements critical for inventory and production process control across a broad range of industries and manufacturing operations.
APM co-Founder and CEO Ofir Perl commented: “We congratulate the BinMaster team – one of the best in our family of distributors – on receipt of the award. This achievement is due to their marketing savvy and vast experience as well as to APM’s advanced technology, which has attracted the attention of corporate financial and operations executives for its potential to optimize inventory and even reduce inventory requirements in large-scale manufacturing operations. These top managers,” Perl noted, “are impressed with APM’s technology because it allows them to significantly reduce inventory costs. And their production and plant managers are very satisfied because it accurately measures the level and volume of the bulk solids being stored, maximizing the smooth and timely flow of raw materials through the production chain,” Perl concluded.
