Seegrid to Sponsor Robotics Solutions Webcast on June 3, 2014

Seegrid, makers of automated guided vehicles (AGVs), is sponsoring an upcoming Robotics Solutions webcast for Warehouses and Fulfillment Centers on Tuesday, June 3 at 2:00 pm EST. Mitchell Weiss, Chief Operating Officer for Seegrid, will also serve as one of the panelists.

The webcast will address flexible and reliable robotic picking, handling, depalletizing, and palletizing solutions for wholesale, food service, and retail store replenishment and maximize order fulfillment efficiency. The webinar will also cover the labor cost savings through increased reliability, line speed, workplace safety, and order accuracy. This webcast presents an overview of robots and automation: together with monitoring, controlling, and supporting robot solutions for peak performance.


Weiss has extensive experience as a Senior Executive at High Technology robotics and automation companies. He has been involved in significant installed base of automation systems in semiconductor manufacturing, electronics manufacturing, automotive, and warehousing and distribution. Weiss is accomplished in product design and development. Additionally, Weiss holds twenty patents.

Dan Kara, Chief Research Officer, Myria RAS, addresses questions during this exclusive live webcast. He will offer an industry-wide look at how robots with advanced vision systems and robotic arm technologies are driving change in the entire goods-to-man process flow, which are leading to the inevitable reality of the "lights out warehouse."

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
