Don't Miss Us at MODEX 2012 in Atlanta, GA!

Have you ever tried to stump a robot? Here's your chance!  We're featuring an interactive demo that allows visitors to randomly stack boxes onto a pallet. An MH50 robot with DX100 controller uses MotoSight™ 3D Spatial Vision to locate the boxes in 3D space and then depalletize them. After the boxes are picked, they will be palletized in a second location.

Watch a preview of the demo.

Visit us at the Intelligrated booth #2900, February 6-9, 2012.
