Modula Shows How Automated Storage Integrates With Robotics at IMTS 2018 in Chicago

For IMTS, Chicago 2018, Modula teamed up with one of our dealers, MMCI Automation, (who are experts at material handling automation) to demonstrate just how capable our automated storage solution really is!  We combined a "cobot" Fanuc robot with a conveyor system and our Modula LIFT vertical storage machine. It was a record-breaking show and we heard a lot of great feedback about the need for material handling automation across many different industries. Modula warehouses can interface with anthropomorphous robots using a “Robot interface kit” installed on the electrical panel for handling of electrical signals from the Modula WMS to a Robot as well as from a Robot to the Modula WMS. Modula WMS software includes an interface which uses a software communications protocol based on direct memory access to the robot’s PLC (Siemens® PLC only) or socket server mode.

If you missed the opportunity to meet us at the show and get to know our company and vertical storage solutions then we would love to discuss how we can help you to reduce your storage footprint as well as increase picking accuracy, safety, and security.

You can also see our machine demo live at our next event; FABTECH in Atlanta November, 6-8, be sure to stop by booth #B8921 and talk with our team about your storage needs. 


Be sure to look for Modula at the next IMTS Show in 2019!
