What is artificial intelligence?
Put simply, artificial intelligence means that machines and devices can take decisions independently and that they are capable of learning by themselves. An example of this is an algorithm that searches for retrievable objects. Imagine that a database contains information on the best place to retrieve a number of objects in order to optimize product handling. The algorithm is self-learning if it is able to determine – based on known data – the best place to retrieve an object that is not yet included in that database.
The advantages of artificial intelligence
The use of artificial intelligence (also known as AI) can generate significant gains in terms of process optimization. Some of the advantages of AI are:
- Less human intervention, which means fewer human errors;
- Tasks that previously required a lot of manpower can be automated;
- Automated process optimization.
ARCO and artificial intelligence
Our Research & Development team investigates new and smart solutions that can be applied in a wide range of industries. For example, a machine that can scan a product and use information stored in a database to determine what kind of product it is as well as the best place to retrieve it. When the machine scans an unknown product, it can add this product to its database and automatically recognize it next time.
Besides delivering AI solutions, ARCO can ensure that all the data generated by your machines is securely stored in the cloud, locally, or on the server. We use stored data to reduce downtime. You always have access to your own data, and all stored information is used to continuously optimize your processes. You can also choose to store your data on your own server. In that case, we log into your server and take care of process optimization from there. We are more than happy to discuss the various options with you and find the right solution for your needs.

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.’
