A new shuttle AS/RS—the —debuted on Monday in a press conference led by Kevin Reader, director of marketing and business development at Knapp (Booth B1735).

Completely redesigned, the shuttle packs more functions and greater energy efficiency into a smaller size, enabling it to travel faster, increase system density and reduce a facility’s carbon footprint.

Ideal for either Greenfield or existing buildings, “the shuttle structure now integrates the lifts and conveyor queuing, dramatically increasing its flexibility and adaptability by making it a much simpler process to add on workstations for e-commerce, automated case handling and palletizing, or quality control, Reader said. “It also now travels as high as 130 feet and distances of 650 feet, a 25% improvement over the previous models.”

Knapp is also showcasing its new that serves as a control panel for senior managers seeking to leverage Big Data, predictive modeling, analytics, Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial intelligence (AI) to optimize warehouse and DC operations.

Modex 2018 is scheduled to be held April 9-12 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the materials handling and logistics industry.
