LogiMAT: Dematic Presents Innovations and Standardized Automation Solutions

Heusenstamm, 22 January 2020 – Dematic is presenting innovations and standardized automation solutions at LogiMAT 2020 in Stuttgart. From 10 to 12 March, the intralogistics specialist will be presenting, among other things, the new Dematic Micro-Fulfilment solution. This innovative automation system is specially tailored to the requirements of retailers with high throughput rates and assembles complete orders automatically within an hour. Another highlight is the premiere of the new Dematic Multishuttle 2 E with a live demonstration. It stores, buffers and sequences products between the warehouse, picking and order assembly. In addition, Dematic Pallet Unit Storage Handling (PUSH) has been used to optimize pallet storage. This is a modular system of proven components that is configured according to specific customer requirements. The possibilities offered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) in intralogistics are illustrated by the logistics automator using as an example the Dematic Automated Mixed Case Palletizing (AMCAP) system. The solutions can be seen at the newly designed Dematic exhibition exhibit in Hall 1, Booth H61, which has been enlarged to two floors.

"Our mission is to work with our customers to implement solutions that are innovative and, because of their modularity, offer flexibility and scalability to ensure continually optimized and efficient material handling even in the event of future growth or process changes," says Jessica Heinz, Head of Marketing and Business Development Dematic Central Europe. With the new Dematic Micro-Fulfilment solution, the intralogistics specialist is setting new standards for omni-channel distribution. The innovative automation system assembles orders fully automatically within an hour. Because of its compact design of less than 900 square meters, it can be installed in urban areas directly at the back of a retail store or as a separate urban fulfilment center, closer to the end consumer and with significantly shorter delivery times. 

The Dematic Micro-Fulfilment system is made up of proven technologies such as the Dematic Multishuttle. At LogiMAT, Dematic will be introducing the latest generation, the Dematic Multishuttle 2 E, for optimized storage and retrieval of uniform standardized containers. This new version provides higher throughput rates with improved accuracy while interfacing to all current gauge components such as rails, lift and rack conveyors and featuring the patented inter-aisle transfer. It dynamically repositions goods in real time, bringing the right product to the right place at the right time, while providing key performance indicators for transparent operation. The Dematic iQ software (or alternate SAP option) coordinates all logistics processes in the warehouse between picking and packing.

Also on display at the booth will be the optimized automation solution for pallet storage, Dematic PUSH. The system works on the modular principle: it is configured according to the requirements of the individually proven standardized components. As a result, installation times are short. The compact design and high storage density optimize the use of the available space. Compared to a manual pallet warehouse, up to 20 percent of the space is saved. The throughput rate is up to 400 pallets per hour. 

Dematic will be showing the first application of AI in the AMCAP automation solution, a high-performance system for sequenced, fully automatic palletizing of different goods and packaging units on pallets or roll containers. The scalable design allows flexible throughput rates of several thousand containers per hour in a multi-shift operation.
