Intelligrated showcases robotic each picking at MODEX 2016

Integrated AS/RS, robotic demonstration performs fully automated each picking

(ATLANTA: April 04, 2016)—Intelligrated® (www.intelligrated.com), a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, presents a dynamic demonstration of its goods-to-robot each picking capabilities in booth #2747 at MODEX 2016.


To fully automate the order fulfillment process, the solution integrates Intelligrated's AS/RS shuttle technology with an articulated robotic arm. The shuttle system retrieves totes and delivers them to a robotic arm equipped with vision technology and suction end-of-arm tooling to identify and handle individual items.

Designed with flexibility to handle the high volumes of individual orders common in e-commerce fulfillment operations, the solution offers productivity and accuracy advantages over manual processes. It allows operations to adapt to changing order profiles and manage SKU proliferation while redeploying labor resources to more value-added tasks.

"Distribution and fulfillment operations are always under pressure to find the most efficient method to meet customer service level demands and find a competitive edge," says Matt Wicks, vice president, product development, manufacturing systems. "Demonstrating this solution at MODEX allows attendees to see firsthand how the integration of shuttles and robotic technology enables them to optimize labor utilization and bring the benefits of automation to fulfillment processes."

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
