Cabela's Touts Seegrid Robots Improve Throughput and Deliver Cost Savings

Robots have streamlined our process flow through centralized route management and improved in our dock-to-stock timing

Pittsburgh, PA, March 26, 2012 - Cabela's Distribution Center, located in Wheeling, West Virginia,has been using Seegrid's unmanned robotic pallet trucks since July 2010. Seegrid replaced manned

double pallet jack riders and forklifts to reduce labor costs and improve dock-to-stock throughput

According to Aaron Purman, Operations Manager for Cabela's, "Seegrid robots provided Cabela's
with the cost savings solution we needed." He also noted that Cabela's looked to Seegrid robots to
reduce manned long haul transports, handle the high variety of product flow, and provide the flexibility
to change routes easily.

"Robots have streamlined our process flow through centralized route management and improved
in our dock-to-stock timing, as we now partner our delivery process with the use of the robots,"
stated Purman. The robotic pallet trucks have increased operational efficiency by improving receipt
to putaway time, optimized product flow, and reduced labor costs.

"Cabela's is a loyal Seegrid customer that shares our vision for innovation and driving cost savings
by eliminating non-value-added movement within a warehouse," said David Noble, Director of Sales
and Marketing.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
