The Tecate Group, a global manufacturer and supplier of electronic components and assemblies, will be exhibiting in booth N829 at ProMat 2017, held April 3 through 6 at Chicago’s McCormick Place. ProMat is the largest expo for manufacturing and supply chain professionals in North America and provides attendees access to the latest material-handling and logistics equipment and technologies.
E-commerce is seeing pressures for shortened delivery times, reduced overall cost, and increased efficiencies. As customers are becoming educated about e-commerce, they are looking at the overall price, including shipping cost and delivery times, instead of the initial product cost alone. Cold-storage applications are also seeing increased pressures for optimization in the fulfillment center that can allow for streamlined energy use and faster delivery of goods. Challenges remain in deploying automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS) solutions. The high capital costs required to deploy these systems mean the risk of downtime due to equipment failure or malfunction can have significant effects on system return on investment. There are also costs to maintaining and updating the systems. These challenges can be addressed by using ultracapacitor power sources to limit component failures and maintenance in ASRS systems.
The use of ultracapacitors as a power source in shuttles and 3-D shuttles reduces system failures and maintenance requirements due to power source failures. With almost limitless charge/discharge cycles, your shuttle may be replaced before the ultracapacitor pack. An ultracapacitor charges in seconds, resulting in less overall downtime and lower initial cost….
