Manufacturer of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) iFollow will be showcasing its slimline robots at IntraLogisteX and the co-located Robotics and Automation exhibition, which take place in Hall 6 of the NEC Birmingham on 28-29 March 2023.
This year, for the first time ever, the UK’s biggest intralogistics and warehousing trade show and the UK’s largest dedicated robotics and automation exhibition will be taking place under the same roof.
Frazer Watson, iFollow’s UK and Ireland Country Manager said: “This is the first time that the IntraLogisteX and the Robotics and Automation events will be held together, in addition to the shows making their debut at the National Exhibition Centre.
“This gives the iFollow team an exciting opportunity to discuss and demonstrate the latest agile intralogistics techniques involving robots, which are essential for picking duties and a broad range of applications in different sectors including retail, manufacturing and logistics.
“We will also be able to inform visitors of the benefits of a new turntable solution for iFollow’s AMRs.”
iFollow’s AMRs are designed and manufactured in France. The robots have the flexibility to transport different storage units including pallets, trolleys, and roll cages. Capable of operating in temperatures from -25° C to +40°C ‘without degradation of battery life’, the AMRs are robust and can carry two roll cages simultaneously in cold stores and ambient warehouses.
Watson continued: “The AMR solutions that we will be showcasing are beneficial for picking and internal transport within warehouses and distribution centres. Mobile robots act as a picker’s right hand for collaborative and autonomous order picking in logistics and industrial environments.
“From a health and safety perspective, they carry the weight that might otherwise lead to risk of musculoskeletal disorder in personnel. This will not only result in better working conditions for staff, but also higher productivity.”
iFollow (Stand i312) will be at IntraLogisteX on 28-29 March 2023 at the NEC Birmingham. For more information, visit www.intralogistex.co.uk.
