FANUC Robotics Integrator Remtec Automation Announces Growth in Automated Robotic Material Handling Projects

Remtec Automation sees uptick in automated robotic pick-and-place, palletizing and case-packing conveyor projects due to tight labor market in manufacturing.

Mason, OH - November XX, 2016 - Remtec Automation, LLC, a leader in flexible robotic automation, today announced it has seen a sharp rise in the number of automated robotic material handling pick-and-place, palletizing and case-packing projects. The company is a Level IV servicing integrator for Fanuc Robotics, and has a 35-year history of designing and installing turnkey robotic automation solutions for material handling applications.

"There is currently a great demand for material handling systems, especially those focusing on using automation to solve labor shortage issues," said Lisa Ryle, president of Remtec Automation. "Its an easy investment for manufacturers to make because of the quick return on investment. Robotic pallet and case handling conveyor systems are highly-efficient, low-risk automation projects. Our customers have been very pleased with their outcomes."
The current low unemployment rate in the US has led to shortages for key experienced material-handling operators in the manufacturing industry. The labor shortages have resulted in increased demand for automated robotic systems in order to keep the manufacturing production lines running at required capacity. Remtec Automations success with automated robotic material handling systems has also been enhanced by the quality and efficiency of their completed projects.
Remtec Automations material handling systems are designed to the clients specifications, and offer handshake integration to existing upstream or downstream equipment. Automated robotic systems typically include such features as multiple integrated conveyor lines, robotic palletizing cells, pneumatic manipulation, photo-eye sensors, powered conveyors, multiple HMIs, vision inspection and state-of-the art light curtain integrated safety features.
In addition to being a Level IV Systems Integrator for Fanuc Robotics, Remtec Automation recently announced its appointment as a Cognex Certified System Integrator (CSI) in North America.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
