Intelligrated to showcase conveyor, sliding shoe sortation systems at POST-EXPO Hong Kong

China-based team to highlight automated solutions for post and parcel operations

(SHANGHAI: April 28, 2016)—Intelligrated® (www.intelligrated.com), a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider with operations in Shanghai, announces its lineup for POST-EXPO 2016, May 24-26 at the Asia World Expo center in Hong Kong. At booth #10018 in hall three, the company will feature its conveyor and sliding shoe sortation systems, designed for high-throughput post and parcel operations.


IntelliSort® sliding shoe sortation systems draw from more than 100 years of experience and thousands of installations to deliver efficient, reliable handling of a wide variety of packaging types and product sizes, from malleable polybags to rigid cases. Patented soft touch divert technology provides high-speed, gentle carton control and divert accuracy, and reduces item impact speed by 500 percent, enabling operations to minimize the risk of product damage without compromising throughput.

Intelligrated conveyor systems provide fast, gentle handling of letters, soft packs, polybags and corrugate cases to support the needs of ground-based and overnight delivery. Patented neighborhood mode enables accumulation conveyor to operate at the highest speeds in the industry while reducing carton rotation and side-by-side products. Configured as modular components, Intelligrated conveyor systems occupy minimal facility space and seamlessly integrate with other automated equipment, backed by complete integration and support services for a lifetime of reliable service.

"As post and parcel carriers are challenged to meet increasingly higher standards of efficiency, they require best-of-breed, reliable conveyor and sortation technology backed by a trusted local presence," says Danny Liang, general director, Chinese operations. "Intelligrated's Shanghai team is well-positioned to give businesses a competitive edge and support sustained growth with increased flexibility, accuracy and speed."

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.
