Customers Demand Shorter Lead Times

Customers Demand Shorter Lead Times The biggest challenge for manufacturers today is customers demanding shorter lead times, according to a recent research report. That development represents a big change from a year and a half ago when demand for lower prices was the dominant factor. One of the best ways for manufacturers to meet these demands, without increasing inventories, is to collaborate more closely with customers and suppliers. Are calls for shorter lead times driving your business too? How is your company reacting?

Robots Handle Delicate Tasks

Robots Handle Delicate Tasks Robots can provide precision, speed, and endurance to materials handling tasks. Two new lines of robots are designed to handle loads up to five Kg with high-speed and long-reach capabilities. Products in a line of SCARA (Selective Compliant Articulated Robot Arm) units move through four axes of motion, and other units, with higher precision, move through six axes. Intended applications include pick-and-place and assembly.

Conveyor System Cuts Processing Time

This success story from Modern Materials Handling describes how an advanced conveyor system helped reduce trailer unloading time from several hours to less than one. The system also accumulates cases and meters them to an automatic palletizer, which cuts processing time and lowers the risk of injuries. System components include extendable conveyors, belt conveyors, a zero pressure accumulator, and a bar code system that helps direct the flow of materials.

Smallest Materials Tracking Chip

Smallest Materials Tracking Chip Researchers at Hewlett-Packard have developed a miniature wireless data chip measuring less than half the size of a grain of rice — small enough to be embedded or attached to almost any object. The developers suggest several possible applications including storing medical records on a patient's wristband, helping to fight counterfeiting in the pharmaceutical industry, and providing additional information for printed documents.

Bar Codes Handle Increase in SKUs

Bar Codes Handle Increase in SKUs A new bar coding system, feeding data to a new warehouse management system, is helping a bottling operation handle a rapid expansion in its product lines. The company has grown from handling just one or two SKUs to the point where its four bottling lines each change their products 30 or 40 times a month — representing a huge number of SKUs, and tracking challenges that could no longer be handled with a manual system.

Lift Trucks for Long Loads

Lift Trucks for Long Loads Long loads are a strong niche in the lift truck market. One new product line, the GT Series from Combilift, features trucks that can be customized for the desired platform length. These stand-up side-loaders are available in gas and electric versions. A hydrostatic drive allows the units to be used in aisles as narrow as 50 in., both indoors and out. Optical guidance is available as an option on these all wheel drive multi-directional units. Capacities range from 6,000 to 10,000 lbs, with lift heights up to 327 in.

AGV with Lift-Deck Feeds Automated Systems

AGV with Lift-Deck Feeds Automated Systems Automated guided vehicle systems (AGVS) require a smooth handoff when they transport materials between systems. This lift-deck AGV, with a hydraulic lift that can lift/lower and extend/retrieve, is ideal for transferring pallets among conveyors, AS/RS, and other automated equipment. This product line handles loads up to 8,000 lbs. Dimensions of the vehicle depend on the expected loads.

Some Bees Like it Hot

Some Bees Like it Hot Flowers are considered by many to be one of nature's works of art. While that may be true, it also turns out their form may be following their function. According to a new study, bees look for the warmest flowers so that they don't have to expend energy maintaining their own body heat. Flowers in turn evolved specific shapes to show their potential pollinators that they would provide the requisite warmth.
