FKI Logistex Opens Demo and Training Center Next Week

By: E&P Staff St. Louis-based integrated material handling solutions supplier FKI Logistex opens its new, multimillion-dollar FKI Logistex Technology & Education Center (TEC) in Cincinnati on July 17, 2007. The 31,000-square-foot training and demonstration center offers FKI Logistex customers access to fully functional, automated sortation, conveying, AS/RS, and order fulfillment systems for demonstrations, proof-of-concept testing, and training.

TEC visitors can test their own products and containers on the equipment and preview material-handling solutions developed by FKI Logistex engineers. The TEC enables companies to jump-start training for new installations and learn best practices for operation and maintenance of existing systems.

On personalized tours visitors will see a mini-load automated storage and retrieval crane, a high-speed wedge merge feeding a UniSort XV high-speed sliding shoe sortation system, motorized roller conveyor, tilt-tray and cross-belt sortation systems, and warehouse control systems. The TEC also features demonstrations of sortation innovations, picking technologies, and controls and software solutions. The adjacent manufacturing facility also may be toured.
