New Red Ledge supply chain technology powers systems innovation at Robotics & Automation 2019


The latest, 2019 Red Ledge CORE development technology “enables faster systems implementation and delivers more affordable automation,” says the company, which is joining forces at Robotics and Automation 2019 with its new majority stakeholder BÖWE SYSTEC to launch the latest range of Red Ledge manufacturing and logistics (M&L) automation systems. In combination with BÖWE SYSTECs advanced sortation technology they are designed to support and integrate the entire supply chain, controlling M&L processes and tracking inventory from production line to warehousing and distribution.

Red Ledge systems on show at Robotics and Automation 2019 include RFID goods tracking, robotics, autonomous guided vehicles (AGVs), automatic pallet movers and speed labelling.

Also on show, the latest Red Ledge warehouse management and control system drives light and voice warehouse applications, while its automated goods routing and ASRS (automatic storage and retrieval) provide a fully lights-out warehouse environment.

Red Ledge majority shareholder BÖWE SYSTEC GmbH is part of the Possehl Group, which in its 2018 financial year generated a turnover of around 3.8 billion euros and employed some 13,300 people.
