Our Readers Have Spoken: “Follow-Me” Technology’s Place in the Warehouse

Last week we shared with everyone a short video we made to demonstrate a new innovation in warehouse automation we are calling “Follow Me” (see it again here). It’s a drive engine mounted on one of our mobile-powered carts – but with a twist. Rather than start and stop using physical controls, the “Follow Me” feature enables the cart to follow the operator at their own pace, starting and stopping as they do. We were drawn to looking deeper into this because of the potential for hands-free applications, especially for picking in conjunction with a voice-collection system or for other tasks like inventory or inspection and maintenance.

How Much Do You Love Your Mobile Power? One Client Shares The Love.

In a perfect world, we would sit back and let our customers do our marketing for us. Because with a Net Promoter Score of +56, we know our products are loved and widely used by them. And recently we woke up one morning thinking perhaps that perfect world was beginning to form when we received this video from Wurth, a global retailer group based in Germany with a core business in the distribution of fasteners and tools with over 120,000 different products. 

To be considered a supplier worthy of their endorsement is truly a privilege, especially when their corporate philosophy is so direct on what they stand for:

"When it comes to quality, we make no compromise. The Würth name stands for good, solid products and process quality in addition to outstanding customer service. Being close to our customers is important to us. More than 45,000 employees in 80 countries worldwide are busy looking after the needs of our customers."

Many thanks to the team at Wurth for making our day! Now, how can we make yours?

Touring Strand’s Apples Added Value Warehouse to Process the Harvest

What kind of facility looks like a factory but isn’t? Or looks like a warehouse, but looks far more industrial than a typical facility with racks principally designed for storage? The “Added-Value Warehouse” is something of a hybrid. It is a facility that does some additional work on a product before it ships out rather than just storing, picking, packing and shipping previously finished products.

Why Robots Won't Replace Warehouse Workers

Despite the fact that ‘Sophia’, a humanoid robot, was granted citizenship by Saudi Arabia and the growing fear and trepidation among retail and warehouse workers in the past decade, the integration of robotics and automation into warehouse processes is hardly the job “Robot Job Stealing Apocalypse” it has been made out to be.

Reduction of Labor by 60% With 3 Simple Steps

Though the Cinetic Landis Corporation has been doing business since 1897, there were still opportunities to improve productivity in operations.  More specifically, there was a bottleneck in the receiving department.  As components used in the manufacturing of the boring and grinding machines are received, they are individually identified, inspected, marked and tracked at the time of receipt.

The Ultimate Battery for a Portable Laptop Desk

Even the most powerful "portable laptop desk" is limited.  Power to the portable desk (also referred to as a workstation) is a challenge.  Long extension cords remove the benefits of using a portable laptop desk in business and in fact could become more of a hindrance.  The young man you see below in the photos has everything he needs:  A laptop, a printer and a shelf to put the item he is working on.  There is a flat surface for writing and an additional keyboard.  With the tools on a portable laptop desk, he is happy and productive.
