Intelligrated to showcase automated solutions at MODEX 2016

Lineup features innovative solutions to optimize distribution and order fulfillment

(CINCINNATI: March 1, 2016)—Intelligrated® (www.intelligrated.com), a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, announces its lineup for MODEX 2016, April 4-7 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 each 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 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

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
