Dematic Mobile Automation Solutions to Appear at MODEX

By Ken Briodagh February 27, 2018

Dematic, a global supplier of integrated automated technology, software and services designed to optimize the supply chain, has announced that it will feature its latest automated guided vehicles (AGVs) as part of its complete line of mobile automation solutions at MODEX 2018, April 9–12 in Atlanta, Georgia.

The iGo Neo is a dual-use AGV that operates as both a traditional walkie-rider machine and as an AGV for efficient, ergonomic and economical automated mixed case picking. As an AGV, the iGo Neo automatically follows alongside the picking operator at all times during the picking/putting cycle. It eliminates the time-consuming actions of getting on and off the machine and walking with product over distance during picking.

The Dematic booth at MODEX will also feature a Compact Tugger AGV, part of the Dematic Compact line of mid-sized mobile automation solutions. Designed from the ground up to be a smaller, lower-cost option to a full-size AGV, Compact AGVs are the right solution for automated transport between locations. Available as a counterbalance fork, straddle fork, tugger or deck vehicle, the Compact family provides a fast ROI for companies looking to upgrade their material handling systems in distribution centers and production facilities.

“Dematic AGVs are fully mobile robots that can move and transport items within production, warehouse and distribution environments,” said Tom Kaminski, VP, Mobile Automation, Dematic. “Our complete line of mobile automation provides reliable, autonomous solutions where space is at a premium, flexibility is critical and operational efficiency is an imperative.”
