JONESBORO, Ark.— Hytrol will feature the newest additions and enhancements to its products at MODEX 2020 in booth #6605 in March.
The new products to be featured are the Prosort 1100, EZLogic® 4.0 and the company’s new low-profile line. These products will be displayed on a conveyor loop that includes a belted curves, the patented NBEZ narrow belt accumulator and the 24-volt curve. This loop will also demonstrate the company’s PANDA and SLAM applications.
“When designing the conveyor loop, we wanted to showcase as many new products and technologies we could to highlight what Hytrol can do for multiple industries,” said Daniel Aspinwall, parcel project manager.
The new ProSort 1100 is a smaller, high-speed sliding shoe sorter, with a breakaway shoe. It is made to handle smaller items and is useful for eCommerce industries.
“We wanted to create a ProSort that fits the needs of industries that have smaller packages needing to be sorted quickly and efficiently. The ProSort 1100 is suited for the fast pace work of eCommerce and industries that require similar conveyance,” said Research and Development Team Leader Bobby Brown
EZLogic® 4.0 is the newest generation of EZLogic. ® This product works in conjunction with large control design systems. It is a distribution control system with the power of an industrial fieldbus network. Users can control two zones with one controller and allow an engineering controls team to interconnect additional digital devices on a single cable to configure large systems.
“EZLogic® 4.0 makes projects more efficient by enabling remote diagnostics and analytic capability,” Brown said. “We wanted to create a program that allowed for higher productivity while lowering installation and operational cost.”
The Low-Profile Line allows for simple installation, can be used for multiple applications and is easy to maintain, making this an innovative solution for multiple users. It works well with pick and place robotics such as Hytrol’s SLAM or PANDA robotics.
“We wanted to design something that fit well into systems that offered smooth operation along with precision controls. That way when a package needed to be labeled with a print and apply automation, we would have an option for that user,” said Brown.
Hytrol will also have a virtual reality booth set up where over 30,000 attendees can see how conveyor systems from different industries work together to provide various material handling solutions.
“We use the VR booth regularly at our Technology Center in Jonesboro,” Director of Engineering Ben Moyer said. “By bringing the booth with us to MODEX, we can give a virtual depiction of what Hytrol can do for potential customers.”
