Industry 4.0 FTF (Fork Truck Free) initiatives are critical when leveraging data in a material handling process. Balancing the traditional material flow delivery challenges in a manufacturing plant floor must be balanced with the new use of major data collection according to Topper Industrial.
Heavy-duty industrial carts are being tugged by Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) which are collecting massive data. Whether driven by automation, the factors of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) and Big Data, simply cannot be ignore.
Industrial Material Handling Carts Digitalization is disrupting traditional operations and business models across a number of market sectors and this naturally impacts on the supply chain.
During ProMat 2019 the inroads of IIoT in logistics will demonstrate timely preventative maintenance and optimization of the spare parts inventory. ProMat is a great place to witness of successful implementations of Logistics 4.0; this will require warehouses to become more automated. There is a reasonable amount of automation in the logistics industry today, although little of it could be described as robotic, due to the complex nature of the picking and sorting tasks involved. Traditional robots have been adept at repeatable tasks in a controlled environment – such as moving heavy but identical metal parts on a car production line. Advances in sensor technology allow robots to react dynamically to their environment.
