Forward Industrial are very happy to announce a new and exciting partnership with Konecranes, the world’s largest industrial crane manufacturing business. We are proud to be representing Agilon, the next generation modular material inventory and management system that can be used across a variety of different industry sectors and in a business.
This multi-award-winning and patented Agilon® solution consists of a shelving system, user access points and a robot that travels within the shelving unit. It picks the parts required by the operator, either via the user interface (touchscreen) or by data import, and brings them straight to the access point, this eliminates complete human picking, thus reduces picking errors or mishandling of expensive parts.
The Agilon® can handle material of all shapes and sizes – from matchbox-sized items to items weighing up to 25kg. Agilon® is also able to handle items in their original packaging so there is no need for items to be transferred into bins; and the system then conveniently delivers the goods to the user access point for immediate use.
The system operates up to a maximum height of 6.1metres and unlimited maximum length. A transportation tube that connects all of the modules can be applied which allows a network of multiple units in different areas, and even on separate floors, to work in unison.
Agilon® can be used for storing and managing thousands of different components, providing real-time information on component stocks through a secure internet connection. A secure user interface shows the availability of all parts and even displays an image of the specific parts package before retrieving the item.
Real time inventory information, order history and information related to usage and consumption can be monitored via a secure online Agilon® portal. The Agilon® system provides access to all of this information via a dedicated online customer portal, which can be accessed from any computer or smart device 24/7.
