Marco Marella, General Manager / Fasthink
Can you give us some details about the solutions that you will present at the second edition of INTRALOGISTICA ITALIA in 2018?
Marco Marella, General Manager.
This event will provide us with an opportunity to present consolidated products such as our wireless Pick to Light system and our middleware CONNECT platform developed to facilitate the integration of Auto-ID and IoT technology and components, as well as RFID systems that we have already successfully installed for logistics and manufacturing market leaders.
In addition, we will present products such as Smart Sensor, an IoT wireless solution for Kanban electronic applications and solutions for the integration of collaborative robots for applications in logistic and manufacturing processes.
INTRALOGISTICA ITALIA is positioned within The Innovation Alliance platform with PLAST, IPACK-IMA, MEAT-TECH and PRINT4ALL. What are the advantages of this for you?
Logistics is a common topic to all manufacturing sectors and we believe, therefore, that capturing the attention of a maximum number of operators, concentrated in different markets but with shared problems, at the same moment will allow us to have a vision of the evolving trends in technology in a single event.
In your opinion, what will intralogistics look like in the future? Looking at the market figures for the sector and future forecasts, what are your expectations?
Similar to other sectors, we see also intralogistics becoming “smarter” and more intertwined with connections between machinery, equipment and sensors and operational systems, as foreseen in IoT and Industry 4.0 logic. To achieve this it is necessary to be prepared in terms of management and integration of new technology in order to generate a concrete return on investments and a significant improvement in processes that will lead to an increase in company competitiveness.
