Fewer than 2% of forklifts sold in North America are automated, yet there has never been a greater need for this technology. Many manufacturers are looking to automate material handling processes because it reduces the potential for COVID-19 exposure by reducing human contact.
Universal Robots Launches ActiNav, the World's First Autonomous Bin Picking Kit for Machine Tending Applications
ActiNav synchronously handles vision processing, collision-free motion planning and autonomous real-time robot control, eliminating the complexity and risk usually associated with bin picking applications.
While machine learning offers many benefits to the company, try to move your employees around to other human-based areas of the business. Here are some ways that you can begin using machine learning in a warehouse environment.
Mobile Robots and Autonomous Vehicles: IDTechEx Analysts Discuss How Coronavirus Pushes Logistic Automation up the Agenda
Last week Amazon announced that it planned on hiring 100,000 extra workers to meet the rise in demand for online shopping created by Coronavirus-caused shutdowns and social distancing.
We'll be participating in an on-floor seminar, "Bridging the Labor Gap in your DC" where we'll discuss how robotic solutions can augment your labor force using the latest advances in robotic technology. Booth: #7619
We have developed specialized lifting solutions to solve the problems with repetitive strain injuries of manual handling in most of the areas in a Distribution Center (receiving dock, storage area, picking area, shipping dock). Booth #2602
Attendees looking to demonstrate ROI, increase operational excellence, or drive continuous improvement initiatives will see how actionable analytics provide real-time visibility into key performance metrics. Booth #10012
Musashi AI's technology allows integration with existing sites, retrofitting robots in to existing workplaces rather than having to invest in costly new facilities.
Aerial Drones And Launch Of Novel Technologies Opens New Opportunities For Autonomous Last-Mile Delivery
Last-mile delivery is the toughest and the most expensive endeavor in the supply chain. Thanks to the instant gratification of millennials, today's customer preference is extremely sensitive.
The concept of full automation could be daunting, especially considering the cost, time and disruption that go into building a brand new factory or warehouse - this just isn't a viable option for a large proportion of businesses.
Deployment of an automation solution that takes into account the process needs, the people as well as the technology, ensures businesses can introduce automation that can augment the workers' experience whilst also transforming productivity.
Your AGVs cannot fail, and so the choice of their motorization is crucial. Here are 5 key points to bear in mind when motorizing an AGV.
Air cargo facilities are undergoing rapid digital transformation via the adoption of automation technologies. - the most recent one being fully autonomous drones. At the leading edge of this innovation in inventory management is IAG Cargo.
Today's plant managers are faced with a dearth of automation technologies but it's not always obvious what will work best. There is rarely, if ever, a one-size-fits-all approach.
This, in turn, is driving inventory stakeholders to move their top-tier sites from majority bulk storage to majority racking, and from traditional aisles to very narrow aisles (VNAs). Rack heights have steadily increased from 25 feet, on average, to 35 feet or more.

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
