Intelligrated rebrands aftermarket service group as Lifecycle Support Services

Name change reflects commitment to proactive approach, value-added service

(CINCINNATI: July 29, 2015)—Intelligrated® (www.intelligrated.com), a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, announces the realignment of its aftermarket services group to better reflect its focus on maximizing uptime and return on automated system investments. As a result of the realignment, the company has renamed Customer Service and Support as Lifecycle Support Services.


Material handling operations strive to maximize uptime while driving down overall costs and Intelligrated's lifecycle approach emphasizes proactive value-added solutions that reduce the risk of downtime and increase system longevity and efficiency. The new name better represents how the company strategically partners with customers on lifecycle planning to maximize return on investment.

"Supporting customers through technical and maintenance support calls is simply not enough in today's environment," says John Sorensen, senior vice president and general manager, Lifecycle Support Services. "The industry expects strategic, proactive support to maximize asset performance."

Intelligrated Lifecycle Support Services operates a team of over 435 employees geographically deployed and networked through a service management framework. The group provides comprehensive lifecycle management programs to the material handling industry that incorporate critical focus areas such as technology refresh, equipment modifications, maintenance and system assessments, spare parts strategies and track-driven training programs.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
