MHS to showcase turnkey automation solutions, robotics at ProMat 2019

At ProMat 2019 MHS will highlight its capabilities as a complete, single-source provider of automated material handling systems, and showcase its latest robotic innovation - a singulation system to automate the sorter induction process.

MT. WASHINGTON, Ky. (March 28, 2019) - MHS ( is coming to ProMat, the largest supply chain expo in North and South America, from April 8-11 at Chicago's McCormick Place. In booth #N6539, the company will highlight its capabilities as a complete, single-source provider of automated material handling systems, and showcase its latest robotic innovation - a singulation system to automate the sorter induction process.

In the past two years, MHS has made several key acquisitions of controls, software and equipment providers, including Atronix, VanRiet, OCM and others to expand capacity, product offering, and research and development capability. The company has an extensive presence throughout North America and Europe, and offers access to sortation, conveyor, storage and retrieval, order fulfillment, software, maintenance and other solutions.

"As we celebrate significant growth and expansion, our commitment to going above and beyond for our customers remains as high as ever," says Rush Fullerton, vice president, MHS. "We are well-positioned to serve the needs of distribution center projects of all sizes, and ProMat is the perfect place to showcase that."

The ProMat booth demonstration features a virtual reality experience that invites attendees to compete against the company's latest robotic innovation. The robotic solution automates the sorter induction process by using a combination of advanced computer vision, controls, gripping technology and a five-axis delta robot to pick items from bulk flow and properly orient them in a single-file stream for downstream processes.

In addition, company representatives will be on-site to discuss the rest of the MHS portfolio, including Lifecycle Performance Services (LPS). LPS is the compan'ys aftermarket support group, offering a variety of solutions and services to keep automated systems running at peak efficiency, including upgrades and modifications, supply and management of OEM parts, remote asset monitoring, predictive maintenance and more.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
