Derek Rickard, Director of Sales, Cimcorp Automation Ltd., commented, “Fresh food distribution is a race against the clock, with consumer expectations rising around product freshness and fulfillment speed. It’s time to get ahead of the game with automation. Our solutions enable food distributors and grocery retailers to satisfy their customers with fast, fresh, and affordable products—and do so in a way that’s safe, stable, and sustainable.”
At MODEX, Rickard will co-present an MHI-sponsored seminar with fellow MHI AS/RS Industry Group members, titled, “ASRS as a solution for e-commerce, online shopping demands, high transportation costs, supply chain issues, and product shortages”. This exclusive seminar will be held on March 29, in Theater H, from 1:30 PM to 2:15 PM.
Muratec will also showcase their CNC turning centers and a robust line of AGVS, including the recently added A-Series line-up to their existing Premex vehicles. The series adds seven standard-based models that are customizable for a wide range of load capacities, lift heights, navigation methods, temperature ratings, and software applications.
“Our recent control in leading all North American operations in partnership with the AGVE Group allows us to further build on Murata Machinery Groups’ long track record of integrating automation and solving customer challenges,” said Scott Matlock, General Manager of Logistics and Automation Divisions, Murata Machinery USA. “I’m excited to introduce our AGVs to this year’s MODEX attendees. Common in Industry 4.0 settings, AGVs are a high-value, easy-to-implement first step in automation,” added Matlock.
In addition, Muratec will host with the Institute of Grocery Distribution an “Automation Integration in Grocery Retail. Transforming Resilience, Productivity, and Value” seminar on March 29, in Theater D, from 10:30 AM to 11:15 AM.
