In a press conference held Tuesday, Intelligrated (Booth 2903) introduced a variety of new technologies in sortation, robotics and automation, including the Trak3 xD and Trak3 xL extended display pick-to-light system. The Trak3 xD and xL system is the first in the industry to offer dynamic dual-shelf pick face and replenishment slotting capability, said Jerry Koch, director of corporate marketing and product management.

The system is ideal for dense flow rack picking and put applications, or general merchandise operations that require dynamic slotting of a variety product sizes. It provides end-to-end shelf coverage for a dynamic pick face, with the ability to slot product widths ranging from 1 inch to several feet. Further, Koch noted, its dual-shelf configuration for independent upper- and lower-shelf slotting maximizes SKU density, decreases storage cost per SKU and increases picks per foot.

To enable multiple order fillers per zone, multicolor hardware directs simultaneous filling of multiple orders or value-added services.

ProMat 2011 will be held March 21 - 24, 2011 at McCormick Place South in Chicago. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry.
