Proven and emerging technologies from Holjeron, Lightning Pick and Pyramid for Energizing the Live Supply Chain on display at ProMat.
WILSONVILLE, OR (March 9, 2017) — Matthews Automation Solutions and its brands Holjeron, Lightning Pick and Pyramid will showcase dynamic fulfillment system solutions engineered to energize the live supply chain at MHI-sponsored ProMat 2017 in Booth S1023a in McCormick Place’s South Hall, April 4-7, 2017.
HOLJERON | holjeron.com
Holjeron will debut the scalable, flexible ZoneLinkTC™ controller for motorized roller conveyors. It controls Holjeron’s SmartRoller® and Microroller® brands of motor-driven rollers (MDR), as well as Interroll’s 6- and 8-pole conveyor motors. Capable of operating in a standalone mode—no supervisory programmable logic controller (PLC) or computer required—the controller enables traditional zero-pressure accumulation (ZPA) operation, train/release or configurable zone parameters with minimal human intervention. Its smart capabilities accommodate multiple device connections and control directly on the device, making it easier and faster to commission a new conveyor, or to modify an existing line.
LIGHTNING PICK | lightningpick.com
Lightning Pick will showcase two new innovations that further increase speed, accuracy and throughput when sorting batches of picked items into its Put Walls. Each destination cubby in dual-sided, light-directed LP Put Wall systems can now be specified with LED lighting and/or a photo-eye sensor for touchless task confirmation. The additional cubby interior lighting connects to the same hardware platform as the light-directed modules to help order fulfillment operators sort faster and enhance the area’s overall brightness. The touchless task confirmation feature eliminates the need to touch a button to confirm item placement in a destination cubby, allowing operators to sort more products in the same amount of time.
PYRAMID | pyramidcontrols.com
Pyramid will highlight the capabilities of its Continuous Intelligent Operations (CIO) software and control solutions, ideal for the automation synchronization needs of today’s omni-channel and e-commerce fulfillment centers. CIO seamlessly manages automated processes to generate optimized order fulfillment by synergizing complex, previously disparate automated systems end-to-end. It also provides managers with visually accessible dashboards that convey business intelligence metrics. CIO’s capabilities will be showcased on a live demo automated order finishing line that includes motor-driven roller (MDR) conveyor and print-and-apply labeling, as well as in installation videos featuring conveyor merges, loop sorters and automatic document insertion.
