robots to its traditional palletizing systems used in process industries, packaging systems and warehouse applications. “We’re seeing an increased need for flexibility in our solu- tions,” said Matt Wicks, Intelligrated vice president, product development, manufacturing. “Many of the demands placed on our customers require them to be agile with their solu- tions. Robotic applications are at the forefront of this trend.” Intelligrated’s solutions for manu- facturers include case packing, pallet- izing, warehousing and order-fulfillment. “Many manufacturers’ automation solutions focus on the process of manu- facturing the product, but when it comes to packing, palletizing and warehousing, this is where their automation systems stop,” Wicks said. “We offer automation solutions to streamline manufacturers’ processes downstream of their manufac- turing.” The company’s automation sys- tems include robotic case packing and palletizing, conveyance and sortation, automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) and shuttle technology, inventory management, warehouse management systems software capabilities and order- picking solutions.


Many requirements should be con- sidered when investing in an automation system, Wicks said, including system ca- pacity, return on investment and reliability. “When considering solutions to automate manufacturing order fulfillment, integra- tion with the manufacturing systems is critical,” he said. “The tight relationship between what is being manufactured, what is in inventory and what is required to fulfill orders must be balanced to main- tain efficiency of all the systems.” Several new products recently launched that lend support to order ful- fillment needs of manufacturers, Wicks said, including the Alvey 750 robotic hybrid palletizers, several new product
