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."

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
