The decision to co-locate this year’s Robotics and Automation and IntraLogisteX exhibitions has proven to be a crucial one for exhibitor HMS.
The company (Stand r206), which develops software and hardware components that enable industrial equipment to communicate and share information, said it decided to exhibit this year based on the enlargement and farther reaching aspect of the total show, which encompasses the logistics, supply chain, warehousing, manufacturing and packaging sectors.
The co-location of the two events even led to HMS investing more in its attendance than planned. “The show has been very good [in terms of] of overall expectations. We’ve made good leads and the quality of the audience is very good,” said Yuan Lee, business development manager HMS.
As visitors to the show are discovering, HMS specialises in industrial data communication solutions and thus offers devices designed to help companies, mission and equipment builders solve their communications challenges.
On display are various small parts for communications devices that bridge networks, as well as solutions for remote data collection and wider solutions for visitors looking to bridge their data.
“There’s lots of different types of industrial protocols or communications for warehouse automation, and we have solutions and devices that can be integrated with machineries to help them to be able to communicate with other equipment,” said Lee.
“We also have more than 30 visualisation tools to help organisations monitor the network in their shop or in their facilities to provide them with insights.”
Lee also spoke at the Robotics and Automation Conference theatre this morning, where he delivered an interesting session on how to future-proof functional safety for AMRs and AGVs and other logistics applications.
Lee shared insight into future safety requirements that will be requested by end-users due to new EU machine safety regulations and provided examples of how a wireless safe stop of a mobile machine can be realised in newly designed systems or in a retrofit.
