When looking to boost productivity and eliminate mundane manual tasks in the warehouse, adding robots is a good start, but it’s not enough. Speed, scalability, sustainability, and upskilling the workforce are also essential for long-term success. This strategy requires additional forms of automation that are optimized for digital transformation — from the controllers to the networks to the interfaces and the cloud. 

In this webinar, we explore the many technologies that come together to keep warehouse and fulfillment centers operating at peak performance.

Manufacturers, third-party logistics providers (3PLs), and distribution center operators need tools that enable greater visibility into their processes, offer tighter control of processes, and improve energy management. From sensing to vision systems, motion control, cables, connectors, and more, it’s advances in components and controllers that power the adoption of automation.

This free webinar on controllers and warehouse automation will be at 2:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, June 12, 2024. Register now, and ask questions during the live discussion. It will be accessible on demand after the initial broadcast.
