Wynright Corporation Key Developments

Wynright Corporation and Jervis B. Webb Receive Contract for Innovative Robotics Training Center in Michigan

Wynright Corporation announced that it and its sister company Jervis B. Webb have received a contract to provide automated warehouse technology for an innovative technical education program at Lansing Community College (LCC) in Lansing, Michigan. The college will use the Daifuku technology, including automated storage and retrieval (AS/RS), conveying and sortation systems, for a new robotics and automation training center supporting a new mechatronics technician degree program. Development of the CME began in the spring of 2015 when the Michigan Economic Development Corporation awarded the college a grant to purchase new technology and create a space necessary to meet the growing demand for highly skilled automation technicians in the area. The grant has enabled LCC to modify its engineering labs and expand its overall learning space from 14,000 square feet to nearly 27,000 square feet. The CME, slated to open in the fall of 2016, will feature a real-world training environment with a robotic assembly line. The Daifuku warehouse technology will extend the training environment into the supply chain maintenance area, helping students gain skills and a deeper appreciation of the role of logistics in the manufacturing field. Jervis B. Webb and Wynright, both subsidiaries of Daifuku Co. Ltd. are developing a manufacturing solution that will integrate Webb’s inverted monorail, Automatic Guided Carts (AGC) and AGC software, with Wynright’s Automotion® brand conveyor, and Fanuc, ABB, and Universal collaborative robots utilizing machine vision and various gripping techniques. The closed loop system will utilize conveyor and AGC’s to transport parts between robotic stations where collaborative robots assemble, disassemble, load and unload product within the closed loop. This project will allow LCC to develop a maintenance-focused curriculum around material handling equipment commonly found in an automotive manufacturing facility. The intent of this equipment is to provide a system that will function as a stand-alone closed loop system as well as individual modules able to run independently of one another.
