With the continuing boom in e-commerce and re-shoring becoming a reality for manufacturing in the UK along with challenging demographics and inflation, change is certainly in the air. Against this background for the logistics and warehousing industry, the United Kingdom Warehousing Association’s annual conference in the beautiful town of Stratford-Upon-Avon was eagerly awaited and well attended on 7th and 8th March.
Saving Time In Logistics
The event had a great focus on digitalisation and automation giving a glimpse into how the future for warehousing in the UK is shaping up to be. There was an upbeat vibe, stimulating content and interesting exhibits – like a low-profile robot sweeper that can automatically sweep and vacuum 1000 square metres per hour while you’re sleeping.
Made in Switzerland, the Kemaro K900 is an exceptionally high performance industrial robot cleaner that will swiftly clean both open and complex areas, created with cleaning automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) very much in mind so that access to confined spaces is no problem at all.
A cutting edge and energy efficient machine, the K900 is very easy to setup and use, with clients finding it quickly starts to become an indispensable partner! Programmed to find the most efficient way to clean any given area, the machine means you have one less cleaning headache to worry about.
An Exclusive Interview
We caught a few words with the K900 when it was plying the floors of the Crowne Plaza hotel to find out a bit more:
What’s your role in helping Crescent’s customers ‘Create Clean’?
Between me and you, I’ve got a bit of a superpower – because of my low height (35cm!) I specialise in cleaning hard-to-reach spaces and places that others can’t get to like under ASRS (Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems).
What does a typical day look like for you?
I spend 5 hours cleaning 90 minutes recharging so my day’s usually pretty long! It depends on what my customer wants though – some like me to clean at night when the other workers aren’t around and others don’t mind working alongside me in the day
What’s one interesting or unusual fact about you?
I’m super easy to use! As well as an option for mapping an area by driving me around on a remote controller, you can literally just plug me in and I’ll play!
Real Challenges, Real Solutions
With speakers from Wincanton, ICC, and Microsoft among others, the UKWA annual conference was a great event to bring together practical, time saving, and viable solutions. We enjoyed considerable interest in the K900 robot but that is not the end of the story.
