HONEYWELL INTELLIGRATED TO SHOWCASE AUTOMATION, SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS FOR THE CONNECTED DISTRIBUTION CENTER AT MODEX 2018
Booth demonstrations feature solutions to overcome today’s labor, e-commerce fulfillment challenges
CINCINNATI, April 05, 2018 — This year's MODEX supply chain trade show is expected to attract more than $35 billion in purchasing power, with attendees in search of solutions to stay competitive and protect profits in the rapidly changing world of modern commerce. From April 9-12 at MODEX booth #B3239, Honeywell Intelligrated will feature the latest automation and software solutions to power the Connected Distribution Center - helping companies make the digital transformation necessary to increase reliability, improve utilization and maximize productivity.
The integrated booth demonstration shows a goods-to-operator (GTO) fulfillment workflow. It combines a shuttle-driven automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS), vertical lift conveyor, light-directed picking and put walls to make the most of limited labor for more productive, accurate fulfillment.
• AS/RS shuttle system - Keep inventory flowing efficiently with intelligent two-level shuttle systems capable of dynamic allocation based on workstation availability
• Vertical lift conveyor - Transition totes and cartons vertically in a compact footprint and merge with shuttle systems in GTO workflows
Additional booth features include:
• Momentum™ warehouse execution system (WES) - Simplify complex e-commerce fulfillment operations by bringing together automated equipment, workflows, orders and labor with real-time visibility.
• Labor management software (LMS) - Incentivize employee performance with powerful tools to improve engagement and reduce labor costs.
• TechSight connected maintenance solution - Leverages the power of augmented reality and smart glasses to improve live technical support, troubleshooting and diagnosis.
• Sortation solutions - Handle a variety of products and packaging types with push-tray, bomb-bay, tilt-tray, cross-belt and dual-tray loop sortation technologies.
