Robots Automate The Material Flow In The Warehouse

Warehouse automation is all about robots & the use of intelligent information technology. Experts agree that the requirements for fast-moving, throughput in the warehouse can hardly be achieved without high-performance machines. In addition, member companies of the Intralogistics Forum, the VDMA Specialist Association for Conveying Technology and Logistics Systems, and the Association for Warehouse Technology and Factory Equipment in Hanover will show possible applications for industry and trade at the Warehouse Technology Forum.

“Adam,” an acronym for Autonomous Delivery and Manipulation, is a pioneering I-AGV (Intelligent-Automated Guided Vehicle) according to the manufacturer RMT Robotics, Grimsby / Ontario. According to the product manager, the robot, which can be used to transport goods in production and warehousing, is “able to move independently within its working environment thanks to modern navigation and control technologies.”

According to the information provided by the Canadian manufacturer, the robot system can develop the shortest route according to target-oriented specifications and then use it specifically for the work assigned to it. It navigates around stationary and moving obstacles freely from defined paths. In contrast to conventional AGVs, no control aids such as wires, reflectors, or magnets are necessary.

Robber Industry roboteer presents its newly developed portal robot at the Comet. According to the company information, because of their favorable kinematics and long travel distances, such “storage machines” allow particularly advantageous solutions for material flow automation in the warehouse. In contrast to articulated arm robots, they can directly and without turning points in a large work area.

Robots Automate The Material That Are Needed: 

In its maximum dimensions, the Giants XP model covers a storage volume of more than 1500 m³. The new FP150 version of the portal robot can be seen at the Comat special show “Auto-ID for Packaging and Transport.” It forms the heart of cooperation between companies that combine material flow and information processes in intralogistics written on the flags.

A significant challenge in the automation of material flow processes in modern order picking and distribution centers of such methods are the very different products, containers, and packs. With the innovation at the fair, which works based on a universally flexible vacuum gripping system from Schmaltz, single-type layers from an extensive product range can now be quickly palletized or palletized on standard or special pallets of different sizes.

The logistics system house S&P Computer system has now established the SMS (Short Message Service) for the warehouse in information technology. Expanding the messaging module of the intralogistics software SuPCIS-L8 from the Stuttgart system house will allow a targeted exchange of information between the control center and warehouse employees. If, for example, something unexpected occurs during a picking process or if it is necessary to consult with the management staff, no more time is lost. With the MC-5, GPS Control from Bulgaria presents a data transmission system at the Cement that works outside and in factory halls without any interruption. 

Conclusion:
