DESIGN & ENGINEERING PROCESS

From the earliest planning phase, Tech Logic works very closely with library staff and architects to insure a perfect fit for your self-checkout stations, security gates, automated materials handling system, and internal/external “Throw & Go” book drops. This “early and often” interaction results in installations without costly surprises and the successful launch of your new equipment.

We employ a comprehensive design/build strategy to make sure that automated materials handling systems are designed to guarantee long-term usability for staff and customers. Whether your project is a completely new building, an extensive remodel, or an installation in existing space, our engineers have the expertise and experience to insure a customized solution.

Our “People First” philosophy begins with a Solutions Specialist on-site to analyze your project goals and the space available to make sure your solutions are built for the best return on investment. Our engineering team has delivered such creative solutions as:

  • Installation of an AMH behind glass walls or viewing windows;
  • In-desk self-checkout “Combo” stations;
  • Conveying materials from book drops through the ceiling;
  • Conveying materials from drive-up book drops underneath a driveway into the library;
  • Conveying materials underneath the floor—with viewing panels built into the floor;
  • Conveying materials from one floor to another;
  • Joining two or more exterior and interior book drops to the same AMH;
  • Providing fire suppression chambers on exterior book drops;
  • Including the holds “Print & Apply” function on an AMH;
  • Designing ergonomically-friendly “staff induction” positions on the AMH.

These are just examples of the types of customized solutions Tech Logic has the capability to build and deliver. If your library can imagine the best possible solution, Tech Logic engineers can build it.

“Tech Logic designed and built automated sorting systems for each of our four newest branches starting with our early planning stages. Each building plan was different and each library was designed by a different architectural firm. Tech Logic’s engineers patiently worked with architects who possessed varying degrees of understanding of how these technologies fit into libraries for optimal workflow. Thanks to the interaction between Tech Logic and our architects, each installation went smoothly and each branch opened with fully operational technologies in place to serve our patrons.”
