Previewing ProMat 2017
Ready to check out some of the latest innovations and solutions in manufacturing, distribution and supply chain equipment? We certainly are! The Darcor team is getting ready to attend ProMat 2017, running April 3 – 6, 2017 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
The ProMat show is a great opportunity for people in the manufacturing and supply chain industry to explore new solutions to take their supply chain to the next level of success. The show allows attendees to see some of the best supply chain and manufacturing solutions in action and meet leading providers and experts. Darcor will be taking part and we have developed The Guide to Workplace Ergonomics, which specifically focuses on overexertion injuries that occur in the workplace – an important area of concern for manufacturing, distribution and supply chain organizations.
As we get ready for ProMat 2017, here are a few of the speakers, events and seminars we are looking forward to seeing:
Industry 4.0 – How intelligent machines are transforming supply chains presented by Markus Lorenz, Partner and Managing Director, The Boston Consulting Group. This session covers how machines infused with intelligence will impact our industry and the economy.
A Material Handling Professional’s Pragmatic Perspective on Autonomous Vehicles and UAVs presented by Velodyne LiDAR. This seminar covers the advancements in computing and sensor technology for autonomous vehicles and UAVs and how technology is making these systems safer and more reliable than manual operations. Darcor wrote a blog post on the topic of automated vehicles and safety, Fork-Free Revolution to Support Material Handling.
Sustainable Distribution Center Design presented by REI. This seminar focuses on how REI built the most sustainable distribution center in the world and now they are sharing how it was done. The integrated design approach created a unique collaborative approach including challenging what employee comfort means in a desert environment and overcoming obstacles to achieve design goals.
