Intelligrated opens expanded Minnesota district office

Automation and software supplier grows to provide greater localized support for key accounts

(MINNEAPOLIS: July 29, 2014)—Intelligrated® (www.intelligrated.com), a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, demonstrates its commitment to robust, responsive customer support by opening an expanded district office in New Brighton, Minnesota.


The district office, an extension of the company's Chicago-based Midwest regional operations, allows Intelligrated to better meet the increased local demand for automation systems, service and support. Located at 900 Long Lake Road, the expanded location enables quick-response support for companies in the greater Minneapolis-St. Paul region, throughout Minnesota and in adjacent northern states.

The Minnesota-based team provides turnkey system design, including concepting, estimating, engineering and project management services. Customer outreach efforts are led by Scott Gillette, district sales manager, and Mike Bruno, sales engineer. The expansion supports increased demand for efficient automated solutions from the state's growing warehousing and manufacturing operations, due to low unemployment and labor shortages, while laying a strategic foundation for future growth.

"The Minnesota district office allows us to be closer to our customers and enhance our overall presence in the region," says Chuck Harris, vice president, Midwest regional sales and operations. "This enables us to provide even greater levels of service and shorter response times."

Intelligrated's Midwest regional operations, which include the Minnesota district office, provide the company's complete lineup of material handling automation solutions and logistics software to companies located in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin. Intelligrated's network of regional operations includes locations in California, Georgia, Ohio, New Jersey and Texas, along with a growing international presence throughout North and South America, and China.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
