Guest blog by John Clark, viastore systems

If you’re registered to attend MODEX 2016 (April 4-7 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta), then you’re probably hoping to learn more about the latest developments in material handling and warehouse automation solutions.

If pallet, tote and tray automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) are on your radar specifically, then you won’t want to miss the complimentary on-floor seminar presented by show-sponsor MHI’s AS/RS (Fixed Aisle) Industry Group (via store is one of 21 different industry leading companies who participate in the group, whose mission is to educate, promote, develop and grow the use of AS/RS in manufacturing, warehousing and distribution).

The session—“AS/RS: 21st Century Latest Advancements and Total Cost/Cost Benefit of Ownership”—will be held on Monday, April 4, from 11:15 a.m. to noon in Theater F. Although you have to sit in on the session to get the full scoop on the latest whiz-bang AS/RS innovations in pallet, case, tote, tray and bin handling applications, we’ll share a few sneak peaks here.

–Greater pallet storage density than ever before, thanks to new pallet handling devices supporting multiple-deep lane storage.
–New, economical crane device technologies that can be installed to interface with existing or new conventional racking systems.
–Human/robotic picking collaboration via high-density shuttle-based tote storage systems.
–Pick staging, sequencing and replenishment, through the use of shuttle and mini-load technologies.
