Vecna Robotics Displays Full Spectrum NexGen Material Handling Automation at Modex 2018

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vecna Robotics, a leader in intelligent, next-generation, robotic material handling autonomous guided vehicles (AGVs), will provide MODEX 2018 attendees a unique view of 24/7, next-generation intralogistics and material handling automation at booth #B4987.

John Hayes, VP, Sales and Marketing for Vecna Robotics, shared, “We have developed a full end-to-end automation line that supports transitional scaling in addition to full, transformational lights-out strategies. We are offering a one-of-a-kind view to the future of material handling. Quite honestly, it’s already here.”

The dynamic showcase of streamlined intralogistics and material handling collaborative solutions will include Vecna Robotics Tote Retrieval Systems (TRS).  The TRS, recently recognized at DHL & Dell Robotics Mobile Picking Challenge as best in class, was engineered to autonomously navigate down narrow aisles, and place or retrieve cases, totes or other items from shelving. The system also is capable of picking from or placing on conveyor belts or other mobile robots.

The powerful and fully autonomous RT4500 tugger; recently featured in several media reports on FedEx’s automation growth strategy, will also be on display. Vecna Robotics is offering a Modex 5% discount on the popular RT4500 along with flexible leasing; companies can get pre-qualified before MODEX by visiting Vecna Robotics’ website.

Vecna Robotics representatives will provide information on its Core Task Manager and advanced 24/7 Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Monitoring platform, which was nominated for the MODEX 2018 Innovation Awards. The first of its kind, robust, proprietary system securely collects and transmits real-time data, ensuring enhanced performance and driving continuous optimization by proactively monitoring up-time, ensuring facility operations flow uninterrupted even in situations that can bring other robots and automation to a dead stop.

John Hayes, VP, Sales and Marketing and Daniel Theobald, Founder of Vecna Robotics will present a seminar on ‘AGV Integration and IIoT Strategies to Gain Agility and Competitive Advantage,’ Tuesday April 10, at 1:30 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. in Theatre C and will address questions about this important topic at the Vecna Robotics booth.
