LogiMAT 2019 – First-hand conveyance technology

International equipment and system manufacturers from the conveyance technology industry are converging on Stuttgart for the 17th edition of LogiMAT to unveil their latest product and system innovations for today’s intralogistics material flow. Exhibitors are due to present a diverse selection from their growing product lines, illustrating the latest trends in product development and highlighting the growing sophistication of industry requirements around software, AGVs, and robotics.

Equipment and system manufacturers from around the world are gathering for the 17th International Trade Show for Intralogistics Solutions and Process Management, bringing along products and services for warehouse and conveyance technology that illustrate the industry’s current positioning and future direction. This exhibitor group, traditionally the strongest at LogiMAT, will occupy Hall 1 (including the gallery) plus Halls 3, 5, and 7 this year. The diverse portfolio of innovations and other optimizations from established system architectures and material flow components ranges from equipment and process optimizations of traditional static warehouse technology to automated conveyance technology, fully automated system solutions, automated guided vehicles (AGVs), robot-guided picking solutions, and software systems for material flow control and warehouse management. The system architectures focus on end-to-end process automation with scalable options for optimized production processes of small quantities – right down to fully customized manufacturing of individual products.

Just as diverse as the products on display is the corporate culture of the exhibitors: “The exhibitors at the 17th LogiMAT once again represent a cross-section of cultures in the industry, from global all-rounders integrating complex logistics systems to smaller businesses specializing in custom equipment and system components,” notes Michael Ruchty, LogiMAT Exhibition Director at event organizer EUROEXPO Messe- und Kongress-GmbH in Munich. “And the trend we’ve seen for several years now continues – namely, that the big players in particular continue to expand their hardware portfolios while also cultivating a market presence for software, complete with dedicated business units for in-house development, offering warehouse management systems that go far beyond system controllers and material flow computers.” Aberle, Knapp, SSI Schäfer, Vanderlande, Viastore are among the exhibitors who are not only bringing system and conveyance technology to Stuttgart but in some cases are actually renting additional booth space among the software companies in Hall 8 to showcase their warehouse management and process control systems.

On the hardware end, the focus among the international exhibitors is on innovations in the areas of robotics, AGVs, and shuttle technology – in other words: mobility and flexibility in the warehouse. The US logistics startup 6 River Systems from Boston (Hall 1, Booth K37), founded by former executives from Kiva Systems (now Amazon Robotics), is introducing European audiences to its collaborative mobile fulfillment robot Chuck. The AI-guided solution is designed to offer a cost-effective alternative to traditional warehouse automation and boost picking rates by 200 to 300 percent over manually operated pick carts. Beijing Geek+ Technology Co., Ltd. (Hall 7, Booth C51), China’s leading provider of warehouse and logistics robotics, is coming to Stuttgart with the latest version of the Geek Picking System, an integrated robotic sorting system, including the P800 picking robot with a load-carrying capacity of up to 1,000 kg and operating temperature range of -22° to 122° C. Vanderlande Industries GmbH (Hall 1, Booth J21 and Hall 2, Booth A05) introduces the latest collaborative robot (“cobot”) in its smart item robotics (SIR) series, which can handle dynamic product lines without preliminary SKU teaching – an automated item-picking solution that works alongside humans.

The investments that customers must make to keep up with digital innovation, automation, and e-commerce are driving developments and boosting the revenues of system providers. Meanwhile, rapid technological developments necessitate the ability to constantly adapt the system layout, material flow design, and system configuration. Shuttle or AGV solutions and tugger trains are increasingly deployed to accommodate dynamic, fully automated warehouse systems and intralogistical transports with both containers and pallets. Here, the 17th LogiMAT offers many innovations and new product launches. Storax Ramada (Hall 1, Booth L70), for example, is bringing the latest version of its Ranger shuttle system to Stuttgart, while Savoye is presenting its Intelis PTS shuttle system specifically for the frozen food industry on the gallery level in Hall 1 (Booth OG30), and Knapp AG (Hall 3, Booth B03) is showing the new version of its OSR shuttle system Evo.

Typically, shuttles pass containers and pallets to stationary conveyance technology systems. But AGVs and transport shuttles are being deployed as an increasingly popular, barrier-free alternative for transports outside fully automated warehouse systems. Trapo AG (Hall 5, Booth D37) is coming to the 17th LogiMAT to unveil the Trapo Transport Shuttle (TTS), which works autonomously and can also communicate and collaborate with the Trapo Warehouse Shuttle (TWS). EXOTEC Solutions SAS (East Entrance, Booth EO30) is displaying its multi-dimensional Skypod robot shuttle system, which transports containers and can place them on shelves up to 10 meters high. Propoflex UG (Hall 1 gallery, Booth OG06) is bringing the latest developments in its mobile shelf systems.

Another trending technology in warehousing and intralogistics driven by e-commerce is overhead conveyor systems with pouch sorters. The companies currently making a name for themselves in this segment include SSI Schäfer (Hall 1, Booth D21) and psb intralogistics GmbH (Hall 1, Booths B04 and B07). Also on display are new compact systems like the Storojet storage and picking system, which ICO Innovative Computer GmbH (East Entrance, Booth EO40) is calling the world’s first automated multi-level shelf storage system.

Nor has the pace of innovation slowed among traditional warehouse and conveyance technologies or their components: The innovations and breakthroughs at LogiMAT 2019 include new light-duty conveyor systems (Blume-Rollen GmbH, Hall 3, Booth B77), pallet inspection machines (CCI Fördertechnik GmbH, Hall 3, Booth C46), sorters for small and lightweight items (EuroSort Systems B.V., Hall 3, Booth D52), innovative plastic modular conveyor belts and flat belts (Forbo Siegling GmbH, Hall 3, Booth A01), and new transfer cars whose integrated-hub rotation forks accommodate all types of unit load devices for ground-level load transfer (AFB Anlagen- und Filterbau GmbH & Co. KG, Hall 3, Booth C79). Zhejiang Damon Technology Co. Ltd. from China (Hall 1 gallery, Booth OG24) is exhibiting several new products, including its IoT-based modular conveyor platform i-G5. LT Fördertechnik GmbH (Hall 5, Booth F20) is centering its trade show presentation around a new Pegasus-class automated storage and retrieval system for automatic small-parts storage areas. Visitors to Stuttgart can also discover a wide range of products for niche areas and specialized applications, such as the new electric heavy-duty roll-out shelf system model 5003 from Lützenkirchen Lagertechnik GmbH (Hall 1, Booth K11).

Looking at the above examples, we see that among material flow solutions for the warehouse, automation and digital technology are setting the trends in conveyance technology and systems engineering developments. When it comes to designing systems and material flows, the top priority is variable systems and flexibility in the scalability of solutions. The range of options and spectrum of components that each exhibitor offers is as broad as the needs of the various customers. “In all areas – from new standalone components to the latest trends in fully automated systems – the 17th edition of LogiMAT offers one-stop shopping and the opportunity for a side-by-side comparison of the latest innovations and forward-looking solutions from all major manufacturers worldwide,” concludes LogiMAT’s Exhibition Director Ruchty. “A unique industry overview where industry professionals from around the world can find the right system for every intralogistics process.”

LogiMAT, as the world’s largest and most important intralogistics event, offers the ideal platform for them to present the latest developments and innovations to their existing customers and potential new customers.”

Forklift truck manufacturers have a prominent presence at LogiMAT 2019, filling Halls 7, 9, 10, and part of Hall 2 (featuring Toyota Material Handling and others) at the Messe Stuttgart convention center. Many manufacturers have already announced plans to present new innovations, with a focus on equipment classes 1- 3, especially low-lift pallet trucks, automated guided vehicles (AGVs), tugger trains, pedestrian and articulated pallet stackers, and reach trucks. For outdoor use, new class 4 and 5 forklifts with internal combustion engines compliant with emissions standard level 5 are also in the lineup.

Some highlights:

Crown Gabelstapler GmbH & Co. KG (Hall 10, Booth D41) introduces its WAV series Work Assist Vehicle, the latest generation of the Wave® multi-purpose vehicle to hit the market. These high-lift pickers, with their built-in safety and control system, are the ideal solution for retrieving smaller loads in shelf storage facilities. Linde Material Handling (Hall 10, Booth B19+B21) is bringing two new low-lift pallet trucks to Stuttgart, the Linde T25 and T30, and is also presenting the Linde D10 AP double-deck loader with an improved assistance system that adjusts the unit’s speed based on the load weight and main hoist. The low-lift pallet trucks are designed for short to medium-length transport distances and capable of carrying loads up to 2.5 (T25) or 3.0 (T30) metric tons. They can be used as a pedestrian model or with a fold-down driver platform. Vanderlande Industries B.V. (Hall 2, Booth A05) is presenting a new collaborative robot (cobot), a solution from its portfolio of smart item robotics (SIR), that facilitates the work of pickers alongside AGVs and can manage dynamic product lines without the need for guidance from SKUs.

The new products on display from Still, Toyota Material Handling, Hyster, and others represent the next equipment class higher. Still GmbH (Hall 10, Booths B55 and B61), based in Hamburg, is accommodating the growing demand for forklift-free intralogistics by introducing the LTX 50 automated tugger train with automatic frame and conveyance technology. Still is exhibiting its RX 20 electric forklift in Stuttgart with bonus features such as an on-board charger, Easy View mast, and safety components. Toyota Material Handling (Hall 2, Booth A05) presents the Toyota BT Reflex reach truck with tilting cab and its automated counterpart, the Autopilot RAE.

AGVs are the big new thing. The Swiss company Anronaut GmbH (East Entrance, Booth EO80) offers its Vehicle Support Package, which customers can use for project-specific upgrades of the appropriate standardized vehicles to powerful, autonomous specialized vehicles, robots, and/or high-rack forklifts. Amadeus and Oscar omni are two more of the many AGV intralogistics solutions on display at the 17th LogiMAT. DS Automation GmbH from Austria (Hall 7, Booth D21) is presenting its Amadeus high-lift AGV and the space-saving Oscar drive-under AGV-two standardized free-navigation AGVs of the next generation.

The 17th edition of LogiMAT also reflects another trend in the area of forklift technology: Lithium-ion battery (LIB) technology has been adopted almost universally for electric vehicles in equipment classes 1 to 3. Nearly all manufacturers are using LIBs across the board for at least their small equipment lines-and are increasingly upgrading their heavy equipment to this technology as well. Burger Hub- und Transportmittel GmbH (Hall 10, Booth D57), for example, is presenting its new A-series 1.5- to 5-ton electric counterbalance forklift trucks, made by HC Hangcha of China, with LIB technology. UniCarriers Germany GmbH (Hall 10, Booth D61) has announced that it will equip all future forklift models energy-efficient LIBs. Stöcklin Logistik AG (Hall 3, Booth C30) is coming to Stuttgart with a redesigned ED driver platform for the low- and high-lift pallet trucks and order-picking forklifts, all with the proprietary Stöcklin Power LIB and, for the truck bed models, with an optional transformer for charging from a truck. LogiMAT 2019 will also feature many exhibitors presenting innovative solutions for LIBs themselves and for new charging processes and stations.

This year’s LogiMAT will be the first edition offering visitors the chance to admire the products of Tailift Material Handling of Taiwan. W. Körner GmbH (Hall 9, Booth B44) a forklift manufacturer based near Brunswick (Germany) and majority-owned by Toyota Industries Corporation since 2015-is presenting two of its classic models: a 3-wheel electric forklift and a gas-powered front loader. Hyster Europe (Hall 10, Booth B15) is focusing on the latest add-ons to the Fortens® forklift trucks with internal combustion engine and lifting capacities of 2.0 – 3.5 metric tons.

“The 17th annual LogiMAT trade show once again offers industry professionals from around the world a unique overview of the latest products and service portfolios, with exhibitors that span all contemporary themes and emerging innovations in the forklift truck industry,” concludes LogiMAT’s Exhibition Director Ruchty. “This, together with the expert and innovation forums providing key information on the major trends in equipment development, make LogiMAT 2019 a must-attend event for anyone who wants to stay abreast of forklift truck technology or who wishes to make wise investments in new technology.”

Dayton/ Ohio: Kiepe Electric to equip another 15 buses with In Motion Charging (IMC) technology

.

▪ Kiepe Electric writes next chapter in North American e-mobility story
▪ Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority (RTA) partners with Kiepe Electric to expand electric bus fleet to 45 vehicles
▪ Operator opts for future-proof In Motion Charging (IMC) concept

Kiepe Electric, a subsidiary of Knorr-Bremse, the global market leader for braking systems and a leading supplier of other rail and commercial vehicle subsystems, is to supply the traction systems for an additional 15 trolleybuses in Dayton, Ohio.

“For Kiepe Electric this order brings a further reinforcement of its leading role in electrical traction systems for environmentally friendly buses in the USA,” said Dr. Jürgen Wilder, Member of the Executive Board of Knorr-Bremse AG responsible for the Rail Vehicle Systems division, underlining the significance of the order. “With its eco-friendly mobility and transportation technologies, Knorr-Bremse is making yet another substantial contribution to eco-efficient mass transit solutions.”

The operator was quick to appreciate the benefits in terms of both ecology and economy: “The life cycle of the electric buses is longer and the operating costs are lower,” said RTA CEO Mark Donaghy, “apart from which they are quieter and better for the environment.”

Dayton: Electric buses have been part of the street scene since 1933

Kiepe Electric is fitting the buses with its future-oriented In Motion Charging (IMC) concept. With IMC, the bus charges its batteries on the fly from the overhead lines. On sections of route with no overhead lines it runs on battery power. “This technology greatly increases the operating radius of our electric buses. Operators can run them 24 hours a day without having to schedule any breaks to recharge the batteries,” says Dr. Heiko Asum, Managing Director of Kiepe Electric.

With this order, Knorr-Bremse and Kiepe Electric are writing the next chapter in the story of eco-friendly mass transit in Dayton: Dayton first introduced electric passenger transportation back in 1888, making it the city with the longest uninterrupted history of electric vehicle operation in the USA. The first electric buses took to the streets of Dayton in 1933 and have long since become an established part of the everyday street scene.

Final assembly of the buses takes place at the Kiepe Electric plant in Alpharetta (Georgia). This is also where the company manufactures the traction system components, helping it to comply with the high local content requirements of the US vehicle market. As in many other markets, in North America Kiepe Electric is an established player: In the meantime the company has developed and manufactured the traction systems for almost 800 electric buses here.

Revival Gold intersects 0.94 g/t Gold over 54 meters at arnett and 20.1 g/t Gold over 2.1 meters at beartrack

Revival Gold Inc. (TSXV: RVG, OTCQB: RVLGF – http://www.commodity-tv.net/…) (“Revival Gold” or the "Company"), a growth-focused gold exploration and development company, announces results from the final four holes of the Company’s 2018 core drill programs at the Arnett (“Arnett”) and adjacent Beartrack (“Beartrack”) gold projects located in Lemhi County, Idaho.

Highlights

  • AC18-16D and AC18-17D in the Haidee area at Arnett intersected 64 g/t Au over 15.3 meters1 and 0.94 g/t Au over 54.3 meters1, respectively;
  • BT18-221D in the Joss area at Beartrack intersected 1 g/t Au over 2.1 meters1 within 6.65 g/t Au over 8.2 meters1; and,
  • BT18-222D in the South Pit area at Beartrack intersected 79 g/t Au over 16.3 meters1.

1 Drilled width; estimates of true width and down-hole positions of mineralization are presented in the table below.

“AC18-16D and AC18-17D, the last and most northerly two holes drilled along strike in the Haidee area during the 2018 program at Arnett, intersected significant widths of near surface oxide gold mineralization”, said Hugh Agro, President & CEO. “At Beartrack, in the Joss area, BT18-221D cut some of the best gold grades encountered on the project to-date. Together, these results underscore the exciting potential and broad scope for follow-up exploration activity we see for Beartrack-Arnett in 2019”.

Details

Results from the final two core holes (AC18-16D and AC18-17D) of the six-hole 2018 program at Arnett and final two core holes (BT18-221D and BT18-222D) from the fifteen-hole 2018 program at Beartrack are presented below:

Mineralization in the Haidee area at Arnett remains open along strike to the south and north, as well as down dip to the west. Mineralization often occurs as visible native gold within oxidized pyrite which results in highly variable assay values.  This nugget effect is present, even when larger samples sizes (two assay-tonne) are used.  For this reason, Revival Gold intends to follow-up its conventional two assay-tonne fire assays at Haidee with metallic screen assays of larger-than-normal pulps.

Figure 1 illustrates a plan view at Arnett showing the mineralized envelope in the Haidee area, the eleven core holes drilled by Meridian Gold Inc. in 1997 and the six core holes completed by Revival Gold in 2018. 

Mineralization at Beartrack remains open to the south of Joss, north along strike between the South Pit and Ward’s Gulch area and into the North Pit.

Figure 2 illustrates an up-to-date north-west facing long-section view at Beartrack showing the current Beartrack mineral resource block model (see “Mineral Resource Estimate, Beartrack Property, Lemhi County, Idaho, United States”, dated July 12th, 2018, for further details) as well as the location and results of all fifteen drill holes completed at Beartrack in 2018.

A follow-up phase of drilling and metallurgical test work for Beartrack-Arnett is being planned. Revival Gold expects to initiate preparatory work on an updated resource estimate later this year.

QA/QC Program

Quality Assurance/Quality Control consists of the regular insertion of duplicates, blanks and certified reference standards into the sample stream.  Check samples will be submitted to an umpire laboratory at the end of the drilling program.  Sample results are analyzed immediately upon receipt and all discrepancies are investigated.  Samples are submitted to the ALS Minerals sample preparation facility in Elko, Nevada.  Gold analyses are performed at the ALS Minerals laboratory in Reno, Nevada and multi-element geochemical analyses are completed at the ALS Minerals laboratory in Vancouver, British Columbia.  ALS Minerals is an ISO 17025:2005 accredited lab.

Gold assays for the Beartrack Project are determined by Fire Assay and AAS on a 30-gram nominal sample weight (Au-AA25).  For shallow holes targeting leachable mineralization, gold is also determined by cyanide leach with an AAS finish on a nominal 30-gram sample weight (Au-AA13).  Multi element geochemical analyses are completed on selected drill holes using the ME-MS 61 method.  Sample preparation for the Beartrack Project is using the Prep 31 method, which involves the preparation of a 250-gram pulp.

Gold assays for the Arnett Project are determined by Fire Assay and AAS on a 50-gram nominal sample weight (Au-AA24).  For some of the Arnett holes, gold is also determined by cyanide leach with an AAS finish on a nominal 30-gram sample weight (Au-AA13).  Multi element geochemical analyses are completed on selected drill holes using the ME-MS 61 method.  Sample preparation for the Arnett Project is using the Prep 31B method, which involves the preparation of a 1,000-gram pulp.

„Plunet fulfills all of our requirements“ – Translation Street changes their translation management system

With the Polish translation service provider Translation Street, Plunet has gained another customer who is reorganizing their translation management processes with the powerful Plunet software.

Founded in 2010, Translation Street not only carries out translations in all world languages based on their customer’s needs and values, but also keeps up continuously with technical developments. The Krakow-based company offers a wide spectrum of services for a variety of industries, including specialist translations, interpreting services, proofreading, localization, and desktop publishing.

Plunet BusinessManager is the leading business and translation management software, offering a high level of automation and flexibility to complement a wide range of functionalities. Using a web-based platform, Plunet integrates every step of the translation management process in a single solution, from quote, order, job, and invoice management to reporting. The configurable system also makes it possible to customize functions and extensions to fit individual requirements.

Sought and found: A sophisticated system for a demanding market

Translation Street had been planning to switch to a different translation management system for a while. The fast-moving translation market brought with it new challenges that could no longer be tackled with the current solution. After extensive market research, Translation Street opted for Plunet. Stanisław Szczurek, Partner at Translation Street, explains:

"We wanted a system that is web-based, quick and reliable, can be adapted to our requirements and combined with different modules – Plunet fulfills all of our requirements."

The implementation process ran smoothly. After just a few months, Translation Street was able to configure the Plunet software to fit the company’s specifications, import the required data and arrange the necessary training for their own staff.

Peggy Grafe, Head of Implementation at Plunet, remembers the training phase:

"The customer explained their requirements in a clear and precise way, which meant that I could quickly respond to their requirements and give them specific advice on how to set up the system. All in all, it was a very open and uncomplicated collaboration."

Big plus: Time savings

For the translation service provider, there are considerable advantages to using Plunet.

"The quotes, which can be automatically created as PDF files, demonstrate a high level of professionalism. Translators can directly access the files in the system – this is particularly important in urgent cases, if the project manager is not available."

Another important aspect for Stanisław Szczurek is the amount of time that has been saved – and in this sense, implementing Plunet has already paid off.

"Automatic notifications informing the translators that a job has already been assigned, or the option for vendors to upload or update their invoices in the system – there are so many ways to save time with Plunet."

Looking to the future with Plunet

And Translation Street still has a lot planned with Plunet. At the top of the to-do list is the QualityManager module, which can be used for more efficient and ISO-compliant feedback processes, as well as a quicker vendor search and assignment. In the coming year, Translation Street is planning to switch to the dynamic CAT integration, and implement the VendorRegistrationManager module, which enables vendors to register themselves in Plunet BusinessManager.

Translation Street will therefore experience a number of changes that will further optimize processes and reposition the company – with Plunet always on board.
