Intelligrated wins MHI Innovation Award for dynamic discharge compensation technology

Cross-belt sortation solution wins in best innovation of an existing product category

(CINCINNATI: May 10, 2016)—Intelligrated® (www.intelligrated.com), a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, announces the recognition of its dynamic discharge compensation (DDC) technology as a 2016 MHI innovation award winner. The IntelliSort® cross-belt sorter with DDC emerged from a pool of 98 submissions before judges selected it as the winner from a group of three other finalists in the best innovation to an existing product category.


The innovative DDC technology uses the same software and hardware already included on the IntelliSort cros-belt sorter, but combines an algorithm with a vision system to determine the most accurate discharge trajectory based on item location on the carrier belt, product dimensions and chute location. This increased precision results in 99.99 percent sortation accuracy, cuts energy consumption in half and minimizes manual touches.

"Innovation holds special significance to the material handling industy and Intelligrated. With the market looking to push supply chain performance to ever-greater heights, the commitment to new breakthroughs and continuous improvement is the perfect formula to push our industry forward and provide more value to our customers," says Jerry Koch, director, corporate marketing and product management. "We appreciate MHI recognizing the innovation efforts of Intelligrated and running an awards program that supports one of the cornerstones of our industry."

This is the fourth edition of the MHI Innovation Awards, honoring the best new innovations in the material handling industry on display at the ProMat and MODEX trade shows. The contest defines innovation as a new product, product line, technology, service or new application of existing products or technology that creates quantifiable and sustainable results in terms of ROI, cost savings and customer satisfaction.
