MHI is pleased to announce the formation of The Robotics Group (TRG), the newest MHI industry group. MHI Industry Groups are membership groups around product-specific categories that share information and conduct research to stay at the forefront of their industry.
Members of The Robotics Group are leading manufacturers, integrators, consultants, and component suppliers of robotic solutions designed specifically for warehousing and distribution applications. Traditionally, industrial robots in material handling applications have been limited to palletizing/depalletizing, conveyor picking, or other highly-repetitive tasks. Technology advancements are creating opportunities for robots and automated machinery in a wider variety of applications, including warehousing and distribution center activities.
TRG will conduct education and outreach with the goal of fostering technology adoption in this rapidly-changing industry sector.
The group was formed in response to the changing landscape of material handling and with support of both the MHI Board of Governors and MHI membership, including potential new members of the group, after focus group work and a developmental meeting.
