MATTHEWS MODEX 2020
Experience Matthews’ next generation of intelligent, innovative and integrated solutions with this online overview of Booth 4013.
Welcome to Booth 4013
Watch this video introduction of our 2020 demonstrations from Matthews’ Gary Cash.
Optimize Order Fulfillment with Collaborative Robotics
Matthews new white paper provides insights on effective autonomous mobile robot (AMR) applications such as order picking, sortation and material transport. See how a proven implementation strategy with planning and simulation, plus full integration with other automation (WES, conveyors, pick-to-light, put walls and more), delivers successful robotics solutions.

The following MODEX product demonstrations are managed by Matthews software. Click for more information on Pyramid Director, Compass CORS, Lightning Pick Ops Manager or email [email protected] to discuss your requirements and learn which Matthews software solution is best for your operation.
Pick-to-Light systems use light modules mounted to new or existing rack, shelving and other storage media to direct pickers to the correct product locations and quantities required for an order. Light-directed picking adds speed and accuracy for medium to fast moving SKUs, usually grouped together with a relatively high level of density. The technology can be engineered to improve many order selection techniques including zone picking, batch picking, cluster picking and more. For more information visit Matthews Lightning Pick-to-Light.
Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) improve order fulfillment efficiency by alleviating human operators of manual tasks such as material movement, enabling them to concentrate on valuable tasks like order picking. Matthews AMRs utilize a universal base that can be augmented with a variety of application specific attachments. Matthews’ MODEX booth featured an AMR with an order fulfillment shelving top, further enhanced with light modules. In Atlanta the AMR was integrated with a shelving unit outfitted with Pick-to-Light, to demonstrate a fully light-directed cluster picking system. Click for more information on AMR-Assisted Picking.
AMR-ASSISTED MATERIAL TRANSPORT
This Matthews AMR utilizes a motor-driven roller conveyor top to collect and transport totes or cartons between other conveyors, workstations, pick areas and put walls. At MODEX an MDR conveyor fed totes of product, batch picked upstream with Pick-to-Light, to this conveyor-top AMR for delivery to Put Walls for e-commerce sortation. The integration of the powered conveyor and the AMR conveyor controls is through Matthews WES. This solution is ideal for facilities with areas where conveyor isn’t the best application, and a flexible material flow enhances dynamic environments like direct-to-consumer order fulfillment.

Put-to-Light systems, sometimes called Put Walls or Put Pods, are a space and cost efficient method of quickly sorting product to individual e-commerce orders. A standard application has totes of batch picked merchandise being delivered to the Put area. Operators scan and sort each product to the correct ‘cubby’, which represents a specific customer order. The Put systems are configured to best fit your unique process, product sizes and batch wave details. As those orders are completed, the lights on same, or opposite, side of the wall indicate that the order is ready for packing. This ‘put and pack’ technique improves accuracy and throughput. Matthews offers a deep catalog of hardware options, including touchless task confirmation, to optimize your specific requirements. Click for more information on Matthews Put solutions.
