iGPS and Egemin Automation to Unveil Warehouse Technology of the 21st Century at ProMat 2011

Joint press conference will be held on March 21 at 1:30 PM, Booth #4531

Egemin, epcSolutions and iGPS are working together to deliver the warehouse of the future with some of the most technologically advanced and flexible tracking systems available today, delivering value across the entire supply chain. With advanced robotics technology, global pallet pooling and some of the industry’s leading radio frequency identification (RFID) software, the warehouse of tomorrow is rapidly gaining momentum.

The warehouse of tomorrow is green, efficient, accurate, and connected. Leveraging lighter-than-wood, reusable, recyclable pallets, the warehouse of the future requires less energy to maintain. Each pallet, embedded with GS1 standard compliant RFID tags, is loaded onto an automatic guided vehicle (AGV) and dispatched to take products to a put-away location or immediately into an awaiting truck or railcar. The accuracy of RFID ensures the right product was picked up and that it was put into the correct location. As the communication bridge between manufacturers, distributors and retailers strengthens, partners are searching for better information – information that is more accurate, more timely, and more complete.

Attendees visiting the Egemin ProMat Booth, #2347, will see how easily an operator can interrupt automatic AGV operations, move product manually, and then place the forklift back into fully automatic laser guidance mode. A movie trailer on the ProMat 2011 website gives a sneak preview of the Egemin booth.
