CINCINNATI—Intelligrated, a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, announces its show lineup for Automate 2017, April 3-6 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

At booth #1616 in the integrated solutions center of the north hall, Intelligrated delivers a fully-automated each picking demonstration, a solution designed to help e-commerce and retail operations overcome challenges from labor availability and turnover in repetitive warehouse positions.

The demonstration uses a two-level automated storage and retrieval shuttle system and vertical lift to move inventory-laden totes from storage into position for picking.

Using vision technology and specially designed end-of-arm tooling, the robotic solution identifies and handles individual items, picking and placing them from one tote to the next. It offers the flexibility and accuracy to handle high volumes of diverse orders, allowing operations to adapt to changing order profiles and manage SKU (stock-keeping unit) proliferation while allowing operations managers to redeploy labor to more value-added tasks.

“As fulfillment operations contend with increasing demand for individual orders, they face challenges with sourcing and retaining labor for repetitive yet mission-critical picking positions,” says Intelligrated vice-president of product development and manufacturing systems Matt Wicks. “The dynamic demonstration leverages an integrated, multi-part automated system to extend the benefits of automation to the fulfillment process and provide continuous, reliable throughput.”

Intelligrated is an RIA (Robotic Industries Association)-certified robot integrator, with decades of experience designing and implementing robotic material handling solutions.
