With 409 exhibitors in 35,000 square metres of floor-space, IMHX 2016 attracted 16,082 visitors during its four-day run at the NEC, Birmingham, in September.
IMHX has always been a successful show for Narrow Aisle and this year was no different.
IMHX is a platform where modern supply chain professionals can get together and exchange ideas on logistics best practice and we met some very senior people from diverse industries who were at the show to discuss their plans for the implementation of major handling systems.
Narrow Aisle had a number of new and innovative products to release at the event.
These included the Flexi AC StorMAX – and the response to this particular product was overwhelming. The StorMAX is an advanced intralogistics concept that combines very narrow aisle operation with the ability to store two pallets deep up to 11 metres high which, when used in conjunction with Warehouse Management System (WMS) technology, can service over twice the number of pallet locations than a traditional reach truck-centred storage cube layout.
Judging by the IMHX visitor reaction to its many benefits, the StorMAX has a very bright future.
The same can be said of the FlexiPiCK, another new product demonstrated at IMHX.
The FlexiPiCK is a case layer picking order assembly solution that has been designed to eliminate manual case picking and provides pick rates of 1200 cases per hour per man.
Developed by Flexi Warehouse Systems in the USA, this new mechanised case picking approach is revoltionising FMCG supply chains.
If you weren’t able to get along to the NEC, don’t despair. You’ll be able to catch up with the latest industry-shaping innovations from Narrow Aisle at a host of trade shows – both in the UK and overseas – throughout 2017.
