Intelligrated features new robotic mixed-load order fulfillment solutions at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2013

Flexible robotic palletizing and variety pack solutions meet mixed-SKU fulfillment requirements

(LAS VEGAS: Sept. 23, 2013)-Intelligrated® (www.intelligrated.com), a North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, introduces two new capabilities to its range of mixed-load automated order fulfillment solutions at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2013. Intelligrated's mixed-load palletizing and variety pack solutions utilize advanced robotics and software technology to automate the creation of mixed-SKU pallet loads, retail-ready displays and variety pack cases. Both solutions integrate with other automated system components including software, conveyor, sortation and order picking systems. Intelligrated's booth (#2036) features an interactive robotic mixed-load palletizing display and variety pack video demonstration.


Intelligrated's Alvey® robotic mixed-load palletizing solution utilizes configurable end-of-arm tooling, software and controls to handle multiple product types. These features enable manufacturers and distributors to replace manual handling processes with the efficiency, accuracy and cost-saving benefits of automation.

The two order fulfillment enabling technologies showcased in the Intelligrated booth can integrate with the rest of the company's material handling components including software, conveyor, sortation and order picking systems to streamline operations in manufacturing, warehousing and distribution.

Intelligrated's scalable variety pack order fulfillment solution utilizes flexible end-of-arm tooling to automate tasks such as case packing and unpacking, depalletizing and product singulation. This allows retailers to accommodate consumer preferences for variety packs of foods, beverages or household goods with an effective single-source automated material handling system.

"Intelligrated's latest advancements in robotic integration, end-of-arm tooling and software controls bring the benefits of automation to more complex order processes," said Ted Clucas, senior vice president, manufacturing systems, Intelligrated. "Our newest mixed-load and variety pack robotic solutions help our customers satisfy retail and consumer demands reliably and efficiently."

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.
