Locus Robotics to Demonstrate Fast Picking at MODEX 2016

Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, GA from April 4-7

New York, NY - March 10, 2016 - Massachusetts-based warehouse automation company Locus Robotics ( has announced that it will demonstrate its new, innovative order fulfillment solution at the MODEX 2016 tradeshow in Atlanta, GA from April 4 - 7 at booth #4670.

Locus Robotics will present the unique concepts and technology that will allow operations to pick orders faster. The collaborative process, where humans and LocusBots™ work side by side in the same space, is characterized by a 5-8 times improvement in user productivity, an ability to support different types of operations ranging from eCommerce to wholesale to store replenishment, and an approach that uses existing infrastructure to drive down solution cost and speed time to deployment.

"This will be Locus Robotics' first public event," said CEO and co-founder Bruce Welty. "We look forward to demonstrating to attendees how our innovations dramatically and simply increase productivity without sacrificing operational flexibility."

Building on years of direct warehouse operations experience and deep firsthand knowledge of warehouse robotics, Locus has engineered a new approach to mission critical fulfillment operations. The Locus platform delivers greater throughput, reduced costs and unparalleled flexibility in moving inventory and orders through a fulfillment center. This efficiency and flexibility in turn allow operators to keep up with the increasingly complex demands of channel partners and consumers. Simply pick faster. For more information, visit

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
