Use mathematical modeling to tailor an automation strategy to your business
Mathematical modeling — more complex in warehouse design than in sizing a church or synagogue — helps find the balance between peak and normal activities to right-size the distribution center and its material handling equipment.

In Booth 4335, ORBIS Corp. debuted the Pally—a cross between a pallet and a dolly—that allows users to streamline fulfillment, distribution and merchandising efforts faster, easier and with greater versatility.

It’s ideal for distribution in a range of applications, including warehouse, transportation and retail environments. It also speeds up loading and unloading times with a small-format footprint of either 800 x 600 millimeters (31.5 x 23.6 inches), or 1000 x 600 millimeters (39.4 x 23.6 inches) that easily maneuvers through narrow spaces, explained Mike Ludka, senior product manager.

“The Pally is designed to be used at every point of the supply chain. It allows users to easily move goods from distribution center to truck to retail aisle without unnecessary and costly product touches. This next-generation design makes the Pally easy to use and store,” Ludka said.

User-friendly features include contoured deck handles, rubber braking stabilizers and an optional locking handle, as well as integrated 3-inch polyurethane casters (fixed or swivel) that are foot-pedal activated, allowing stacked loads to be moved or static.

Modex 2016 is scheduled to be held April 4-7, 2016 in Atlanta’s Georgia World Conference Center. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete Modex coverage.
