Advanced Manufacturing Technologies will discuss at Automate how AMRs, machine vision, and AI can be integrated for palletizing and materials handling in warehouses.

Applied Manufacturing Technologies, or AMT, last week announced the details of its planned presentations at Automate 2022 in Detroit and its collaboration with Liberty Reach Inc.

“Applied Manufacturing Technologies will have an extensive presence at Automate 2022,” said Rick VandenBoom, vice president of sales at AMT. “Not only are we presenting two of-the-moment technical seminars at our booth, but we will also be showcasing groundbreaking robotic and AI technology for mixed-case palletizing/depalletizing/decanting of multiple cases using optimized best-fit finding algorithms.”

AMT to present two sessions

Terry Meister, controls manager at Applied Manufacturing Technologies, will present “Autonomous Mobile Robots—Integrator’s Insights on AMR Integration.” During this presentation, he will share some of the tools, thought processes, and strategies to consider when developing an AMR.

Meister will also discuss possible pitfalls to avoid and how to work with the end user on what to expect. The presentation will take place at 10:00 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, June 7.

Craig Salvalaggio, chief operating officer at AMT, will present “Demystifying Mixed Load Depalletizing: How AL and ML Vision Technology Can Unlock New Applications in the Warehouse.” He will break down the different descriptions of mixed-product palletizing and depalletizing.

Salvalaggio will describe vision technology and new software applications within the warehouse, as well as review two case studies. This session will take place at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 8.

More to see at Automate

Hosted by the Association for Advancing Automation (A3), the Automate event will be at the Huntington Place Convention Center from June 6 to 9. Its trade show floor will include more than 550 automation providers, and the conference includes four full days of educational sessions with eight training tracks for attendees of varying interests and levels of experience.

Also at Automate, AMT will unveil the latest in robotic depalletizing using artificial intelligence in Booth 1210. Dexter, Mich.-based partner Liberty Reach will demonstrate how its vision software can optimize case picking for reduced cycle times.

On Wednesday, June 8, Michael P. Jacobs, founder and CEO of Applied Manufacturing Technologies, will receive the Joseph F. Engelberger Robotics Award for Leadership at an awards dinner and ceremony.
