WEBCAST: Robotic Solutions for Materials Handling Applications

Broadly defined, “materials handling” is the movement, selection and packing of bulk materials, parts and goods, usually in an industrial setting. Many types of technology, including robotics, have been employed to automate materials handling processes to increase efficiency, reduce costs and improve competitiveness.

The latest generation of robotics systems, which incorporate vision, mobility, autonomous navigation, complex manipulation and motion control, as well as greater levels of intelligence, greatly improve materials handling productivity and quality levels, as well as enable whole new classes of materials handling applications. But where can robotics be applied in place of “hard automation”?  Also, where is robotics being utilized successfully for material handling operations?

This session provides listeners with answers to these questions and offers an overview of the very latest advances in robotic technology for a variety of material handling applications. Learn how the latest generation of robotics systems, which incorporate vision, mobility, autonomous navigation, complex manipulation and motion control, can be used in a wide variety of applications such as picking, placing, order fulfillment, palletizing, depalletizing, loading, unloading and many other areas.
