Meet us at ProMatDX 2021

The most important event of the year is only one month away! ProMatDX is scheduled for April 12-16, 2021. It is the new digital event experience designed to power up manufacturing and supply chain professionals with critical access to the latest solutions they need now to improve the resiliency and agility of their operations. Vecna Robotics is hosting a webinar and series of product demos that will give ProMatDX attendees a detailed understanding of our pallet moving solutions, including autonomous fork truck, pallet truck, and tugger.

AMRs are Key Tools for Supply Chain Success

Autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) deliver significant operational efficiencies and increased productivity. AMRs are self driving vehicles that navigate autonomously using path planning and learn as they work. Path planning versus following a guided path provides greater flexibility and workflow optimization within a facility. Flexibility is a valuable feature for companies that are striving to stay ahead of surging demand. Vecna Robotics’ solutions go beyond traditional automation and focus on continually maximizing human and robot performance in the workflow to enhance your flexibility, productivity, and achieve a sustained competitive advantage.

2:30 PM- 2:45 PM, April 12

Room 1411

Matt’s presentation will cover Pivotal™, the world’s first continuous learning orchestration engine. Pivotal analyzes your current state of operation and adjusts operational processes accordingly, ensuring every player on the team is performing optimally in real time by:
  • Coordinating and distributing real time tasks based on capabilities, location, availability
  • Adapting workflows to run efficiently through diverse levels of demand and operational changes
  • Sharing information across people, robots, and associated systems with intuitive user interfaces
  • Integrating seamlessly with legacy automation, piece-picking robots, WMS, and MES systems

Webinar: 5 Considerations in Designing Successful AMR Deployments

Andrea Meister, Solutions Design Engineer

April 15, 2021, 1:00 -1:30pm EST

Fredrik Heger, Director, Solutions Design

April 15, 2021, 1:00 -1:30pm EST

A solid solution design lays the foundation for the future success of your autonomous mobile robot deployment. When done right, a highly-efficient workflow design takes the whole industrial ecosystem into account, including human factors, a range of robots for a variety of payloads or purposes, other technologies, and the facilities’ future plans. This presentation will address five key elements for designing a solution for your specific workflow, materials, team, and facility size and type, including how to:

  1. Choose the right mix of robots for optimal productivity,
  2. Identify the right application for those robots,
  3. Design a solution for human-centric workflow,
  4. Interface with a WMS/WES system for best results,
  5. Benchmark for success metrics

Join this session to hear case studies on successful large-scale deployments of autonomous pallet jacks and tuggers.
