Hannover, 23 April 2018 - Robotics and supply chain automation company, GreyOrange, announced installations for the deployment of its ButlerTM robotics system at three new sites, located in Japan and Europe at CeMAT 2018. The upcoming site in Japan is for Trusco Nakayama Corporation (TSE:9830), a leading wholesale trading company specializing in machine tools and equipment for production sites, wholesale distributors and retailers. Its range of over 335,000 products includes over 2,300 brands and manufacturers.

A multinational technology company, GreyOrange is a market leader in AI-powered robotics systems for automation in warehouses, distribution and fulfilment centres. In recent years GreyOrange has rapidly expanded its presence across Asia-Pacific and the Americas and is now at the forefront of supply chain automation innovation, providing solutions for e-commerce, Retail, FMCG and logistics companies across the globe.

Nalin Advani, CEO - APAC, GreyOrange commented, "These sites will deploy an advanced combination of robotics and Artificial Intelligence which will increase their efficiencies multifold. GreyMatterTM, our warehouse execution software platform optimises large and complex operations in real-time. The Butler system was selected to improve productivity in distribution centers located where finding labour is a huge challenge."

GreyOrange has acquired marquee customers in Europe. These include a Global 3PL using the Butler system for one of its pan-European distribution operations in Benelux and a leading e-commerce platform for their regional Fulfilment Center. Both have selected the Butler goods-to-person solution for its improvements in accuracy, flexibility and productivity. There is continued interest in GreyOrange robotics solutions among companies who seek to optimise their complex order fulfilment operations to achieve cost competitiveness and improved service levels to their customers.

Dieter Berz-Voege, CEO - EMEA, GreyOrange added, "The Butler robotics solution offers a compelling business case as logistics managers look to improve productivity from end-to-end of their supply chain processes. We are also seeing more interest in using these solutions for larger warehouses and in our upcoming sites, we will deploy hundreds of robots each to handle significantly higher volumes in shorter turnaround times. The boom in e-commerce globally has resulted in many more businesses needing to manage same day order-to-dispatch times instead of next or more days for delivery."

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.
