Lineup features innovative solutions to optimize distribution and order fulfillment.
CINCINNATI—Intelligrated, a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, has announced its lineup for MODEX 2016, April 4-7, 2016 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
At booth #2747, Intelligrated will exhibit innovative automated equipment that delivers speed, accuracy and product-handling flexibility to optimize distribution and fulfillment operations.
The Intelligrated booth features a fully-automated picking demonstration, using the company’s automated storage and retrieval system integrated with a robotic arm and Intelligrated-designed end-of-arm tooling to pick and place individual items.
The solution leverages the company’s advanced robotic and shuttle technologies, as well as integration expertise to address the SKU (stockkeeping unit) proliferation, endless aisle, accuracy and labor utilization challenges facing retailers today.
Booth visitors can also view dynamic demonstrations of the IntelliSort sliding shoe and cross-belt sortation systems. Patented soft touch divert technology for sliding shoe sorters provides high-speed carton control and divert accuracy, while reducing item impact speed by 500 percent to preserve product integrity.
The cross-belt demonstration features Intelligrated’s patented dynamic discharge compensation (DDC) technology that ensures the most precise diverts to maximize chute density and minimize jams, recirculations and manual touches.
As retailers face challenges like next-day shipping of smaller order sizes, Intelligrated sortation solutions provide fast, accurate handling of polybags, cartons and totes for high-throughput distribution and fulfillment applications.
Representatives from Intelligrated’s Lifecycle Support Services team will be present to discuss the Intelligrated Reliability Intelligence System (IRIS), the company’s computerized maintenance management software. IRIS manages everything from work orders and parts inventory to reporting and budgeting to enable proactive lifecycle management and assist with regulatory compliance and performance reporting.
In addition to booth displays and live demonstrations, Intelligrated will participate in two educational seminars:
- 10 steps to improve operational efficiency – Tuesday, April 5 at noon in MODEX theater E;
- Robotics in the warehouse – Wednesday, April 6 at 10:30 a.m. in MODEX theater A
