About Fabtech 2022
Fabtech is North America’s largest trade show when it comes to metal forming, fabricating, welding, and finishing. The yearly event provides a convenient ‘one-stop shop’ venue to see the latest industry products and developments. Within the three halls at the Georgia World Congress Center, visitors and exhibitors had the opportunity to discover new solutions to improve productivity, increase profits and bring new levels of productivity and efficiency to their manufacturing operation.
Modula’s showcase at Fabtech 2022
Manufacturing executives are increasingly looking for more efficient solutions to minimize costs and overcome the current labor shortages while maintaining their competitiveness and high productivity levels.
Space utilization within manufacturing plants and warehouses is at a premium. Many facilities have completely outgrown their production and warehouse space, forcing them to rely on leased off-site facilities and 3PLs. This presents a new set of issues – increased rental and transportation costs, and loss of last-touch product control which can result in increased product damage and returns.
At Fabtech 2022, Modula showcase its latest automated storage and retrieval solutions designed to help manufacturers maintain high performance and efficiency, despite staffing shortfalls and supply chain disruptions.
At our booth #B9453, we featured a live demo of one of our most successful vertical storage solutions, the Modula Lift. This high-density automated storage system helps manufacturers recover valuable floor space, increase operator productivity and improve picking and inventory accuracy.
By utilizing the available room height from floor to ceiling, Modula Lift maximizes any area’s storage potential, making it possible to recover up to 90% of space compared to standard shelving. Items can be stored up to 53 feet high in a safe and secure unit that automatically delivers them to an operator. No more time wasted searching for items. The right part is delivered to the right person at the optimum ergonomic retrieval height.
Modula’s automated solutions are designed to help manufacturers maintain high performance and efficiency
Industry studies have shown that vertical storage solutions can increase workforce productivity by up to 85% because one worker is able to handle the same volume of work previously performed by multiple operators.
With today’s labor shortage and high turnover, Modula’s Lift enables factories to decrease cycle times and cost-per-piece while maintaining product quality, and increasing efficiency and throughput.
