The Automated Material Handling Systems Association (AMHSA) is promoting a new style of information event, designed to help logistics professionals to improve their understanding of some of the key topics in automated handling. Taking place at the impressive Imago Burleigh Court Conference Centre in Loughborough on Wednesday 3 November, the first event will feature three seminars between 2pm and 5pm.
The event will kick off with a presentation from Adam Fox, Project Manager for leading returnable handling solutions specialist George Utz Ltd, on "Innovations in plastic containers and trays for automated storage and handling systems". As well as covering new technologies for totes, pallets and containers, this seminar will explain the benefits of bespoke solutions, including recent barcoding and logo innovations.
Next onto the AMHSA podium will be Andy Robinson, Managing Director of Autotech Controls Ltd, who will explain the benefits and pitfalls of modern control systems for automated handling equipment in a seminar entitled "New technology – a necessary evil?"
Finally, Nick Hunt, National Account Manager for Motivair Compressors Ltd, will speak on the subject of "Reducing carbon footprint through effective compressed air management for the material handling world". This talk will explain how compressed air – a vital component in many automated handling systems – can be designed, installed and managed more effectively, often resulting in energy savings of thousands of pounds a year.
Attendance at the seminar event costs just £55 plus VAT. To book your place, please e-mail Graham Watts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
