13th annual award recognizes top sellers of conveyors from intelligent materials handling solution provider

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Ill.--Wynright Corporation, a leading independent, U.S.-based provider of intelligent material handling systems, today announced the winners of its Top 10 Integrator-Distributors for Automotion Conveyor Solutions award. This year's award, which is the company's 13th annual, recognizes the integrator-distributors with the highest sales volume of Wynright conveyors and sortation equipment as measured in total dollars.

This year's winners include: Hy-Tek Material Handling, Inc. of Kentucky; Kuecker Logistics Group of Missouri; The Beacon Group of Massachusetts; Conveyroll of Mexico; Conveying Solutions of Georgia; DS Handling of Ontario, Canada; ETi Integrators of Georgia; Warehouse Systems Inc. of Illinois; World Source of Illinois; and Designed Conveyor Systems (DCS) of Tennessee. Each company received a plaque commemorating its achievement at Wynright's annual awards banquet in Chicago on May 16, 2012.

"Wynright had its best sales year ever in 2011, and our integrator-distributors were a huge contributor to that success," said Kevin Ambrose, CEO of Wynright Corporation. "We are delighted to recognize their achievements in designing systems which include our conveyor product portfolio. We are thankful for their continuing support."

The Top 10 Award began in 2000 when Wynright conveyors were sold only under the Automotion brand name. Wynright now offers a wide variety of materials handling solutions, such as conveyors (including its exclusive Autoroll+™ Motor Driven Roller conveyor that uses Ethernet connections rather than hard wiring back to a PLC to communicate between zones), sortation, warehouse control systems, picking, robotics (including its innovative Robotic Truck Loader), structural solutions (including mezzanines), storage and industrial cranes.

"We are grateful to all the integrator-distributors who contributed to our success in 2011, and look forward to working closely with them to achieve even more in 2012," Ambrose said. "Together we can help our customers continue to improve efficiency, reduce costs and deliver superior customer service."

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.
