Seegrid Presents Automation for Everyone at MODEX 2014


Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/28/2014 -- On March 17th at 3:00 p.m. in Theater A, John Hayes, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, North America and Mitchell Weiss, Chief Operating Officer for Seegrid, will present on a session titled, “Automation for Everyone: Disruptive Technologies.” Attendees will discover automation is the only option for the materials handling industry. Attendees will also learn why manufacturing and distribution facilities are rapidly deploying simple, affordable, flexible AGVs. Attendees can anticipate real world business automation examples that reduce labor costs, improve safety, and increase efficiency and productivity with the use of disruptive technology—vision-guided automation. Attendees will learn how they can automate 80% of their operations for 20% of the cost of a typical automated guided vehicle system.

Seegrid is exhibiting at the largest expo, MODEX, for the manufacturing and supply chain industries. Attendees visiting Seegrid booth #7317 will learn about the latest material handling trends and flexible automated guided vehicle technologies available.

Seegrid’s theme for 2014 MODEX is Automation for Everyone. Prior to the Seegrid solution, automation was mainly available to only a select group of Fortune 500 hundred companies, with deep pockets, willing to shut down facility operations for six months or longer to support lengthy engineered AGV installations.
