Knapp’s executives gave the audience an update on the OSR Shuttle Evo, of which the company has sold more than 15,000 units since introducing it two years ago. Launched last year, the Pick-It-Easy Evo offers a modular option that can be adapted to any facility.

Knapp’s PIE Robot is cloud integrated and features self-learning capabilities that build and enhance its SKU database. “These features have not been available in the market until today,” said Kevin Reader, director of business development and marketing, “and have lifted real world success rates for fully automated order picking from 20% to 95% or more.”

Modex 2020 is scheduled to be held March 9-12 at Georgia’s 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.
