How our WCS software work
ARCO’s warehouse control systems ensure control of all your mechanization systems. The WCS is responsible for ensuring that your installations work as well as possible. The PLC (programmable-logic controller) passes on instructions to the installations and the WCS is the overarching program that oversees whether things are going well and whether the machines are doing what they are supposed to do.
The WCS continuously displays the current state of affairs and immediately reports if one of the systems is not running as it should. The WCS can manage several subsystems under itself and balance system activities. In addition, the WCS also collects relevant information about the systems, so that unnecessary downtime can be detected and eliminated.
Use of our WCS software
Within a production hall with multiple systems, it is important that you have an overview and that the safety of your installations is guaranteed. A WCS is mainly used as a control system that controls and monitors several machines. This is an important application in the agri-food sector as well as in the logistics sector and the recycling and bulk sector.
Advantages of our WCS software
The advantages of an ARCO WCS software are:
- An ARCO WCS can be linked to various programs (a parent warehouse management system, or an underlying PLC system);
- The WCS provides current data about the machines and the operation of the machines;
- The WCS stores data that can be used for process analysis and process optimization;
- Access to the WCS is possible via a remote web interface.

What our customers have to say
‘When you both believe in solutions, great results come naturally.’
‘ARCO has simplified our production process. Thanks to the comprehensive package of services and the customized solutions, ARCO is the ideal supplier for us.’
‘Looking back on this project, we have to say that the cooperation with ARCO was very smooth. We joined forces and implemented the best solution for our production line. Where we previously used many manual and labour-intensive processes, we now have a fully automated system that enables us to work very efficiently.’
‘Thanks to ARCO’s installation, we can do the same work with fewer operators. The system ensures a faster throughput of products and the best possible conditions for our operators. ’
‘Because we worked hand in hand with ARCO, everything was developed in consultation and the mega silo bunker perfectly suits our needs. It was an enjoyable collaboration that produced good results.’
‘We greatly appreciated ARCO’s ability to respond quickly. But not only that, they demonstrated exceptional creativity when devising the solution and the various test set-ups that they developed to test the design. The close cooperation between ARCO and ourselves facilitated the successful implementation of this particular packaging line.’
‘We know ARCO as a no-nonsense company that believes in workable and affordable solutions. This is what sets ARCO apart from other companies. They also have all the necessary knowledge in-house to create a strong and efficient line. We don’t know what the future holds, but we will certainly be happy to work together again.’
‘ARCO’s weighing line has had a major impact on our production. Our new system cuts product losses by up to 6%. It was a successful project and a rewarding collaboration.’
‘We were looking for a dosing system that could fill containers with clay and also ensure an even distribution. When emptying the containers, we are now able to deliver a good mixture of the ground clay to the factory. Thanks to ARCO’s dosing system, there are far fewer fluctuations in the clay, which in turn improves the quality.’
