In-booth demonstration to feature complete mixed-load order fulfillment suite, including robotic palletizing and depalletizing, software and robotic integration
Intelligrated®, a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, announces its show lineup for PACK EXPO International 2014, Nov. 2-5 at McCormick Place in Chicago. In booth #3536, Intelligrated will showcase its next generation of Alvey® robotic mixed-load order fulfillment solutions, delivering greater product handling flexibility for manufacturers and distributors to satisfy rising demand for partial pallet loads and retail-ready display pallets. The suite of Alvey robotic mixed-load order fulfillment solutions utilizes the latest advancements in robotic integration, configurable end-of-arm tooling, advanced software, controls and vision technology.
Intelligrated’s live in-booth demonstration features a mixed-load robotic palletizing cell with specialized end-of-arm tooling capable of handling multiple case sizes in a single pick. The load passes through a stack-and-wrap solution to ensure pallet load stability before traveling on chain driven live roller pallet conveyor for pickup. An autonomous mobile robot then transports loads from the stack-and-wrap area to the depalletizing station where a vision-guided robot identifies the case and places it into a defined spot for resequencing back into the mixed-load palletizing cell, completing the demonstration loop. The solution allows manufacturers to automate virtually any mixed case requirement and replace outdated manual handling processes with the efficiency, accuracy and cost-saving benefits of automation.
“Intelligrated’s latest generation of robotic mixed-load order fulfillment solutions provides the flexibility and reliability to satisfy rising demand for retail-ready mixed-load pallets,” said Matt Wicks, vice president, product development, manufacturing systems. “This new technology integrates with software and other automated equipment, allowing operators to replace outdated manual processes with automation.”
In addition to robotics, booth visitors can learn about automated high-speed palletizing for end-of-line manufacturing and automated storage and retrieval systems for buffering and sequencing. These technologies integrate with other Intelligrated automation components including software, conveyor, sortation and order picking systems to streamline operations in manufacturing, warehousing and distribution.
Booth attendees can also speak with Intelligrated’s lifecycle support team for information on upgrades and modifications to existing equipment, system assessments and spare parts fulfillment.
