Yale MODEX Seminar to Focus on Profitability of Alternative Power Sources

Below, please find a press release from Yale Materials Handling Corporation (www.yale.com), announcing its 2016 MODEX seminar, titled "The Profitable Energy Equation for Materials Handling."

GREENVILLE, N.C. (March 29, 2016) - Yale Materials Handling Corporation announces its 2016 MODEX seminar, "The Profitable Energy Equation for Materials Handling," scheduled for Tuesday, April 5 at 11:15 a.m. in theater D at the Georgia World Congress Center. The seminar covers the financial and environmental advantages of using lift truck solutions powered by hydrogen fuel cells, lithium-ion batteries and compressed natural gas.

Presented by Mick McCormick, Vice President of Warehouse Solutions for Yale, the seminar explores the productivity-enhancing benefits of alternative power solutions, including increased uptime, reduced maintenance and improved performance. The seminar also covers applications best suited to reap the most benefit from each power technology.

"In addition to maximizing throughput, today's distribution operations contend with evolving environmental regulations and fluctuating energy costs," says McCormick. "In such conditions, alternative power sources are an increasingly attractive option to overcome business challenges and improve performance and equipment lifecycles with less downtime." Yale will also be exhibiting at MODEX, April 4 - 7 in booth #3147. Stop by to learn more about its alternative power, asset management and automation solutions designed to improve performance and efficiency.

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.
