At a press conference on Tuesday, Universal Logic (Booth C2463) discussed two of its Neocortex G2R (goods-to-robot) cells, which are on display.
One of the G2R cells (large) is exhibiting machine trending in manufacturing, while the other G2R cell (medium) is demonstrating the order fulfillment of consumer goods. Each G2R cell will be operating with Universal Logic’s Neocortex 5.0, an AI modular platform software that the company has been developing over the last 10 years.
By using sensor data and machine control, the AI software provides the G2R cells real-time reactive control so they can handle upward of 90,000 SKUs—at 600 to 1,600 items per hour.
“Not to mention, the G2R cells are half the cost of labor—$7 per hour,” said Hob Wubbena, VP at Universal Logic. “As a result, customers can realize a 12- to 18-month payback.”
Modex 2018 is scheduled to be held April 9-12 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the materials handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete coverage of the show.
