Third edition of “World of Material Handling” trade fair event.

he third edition of the successful intralogistics trade fair event “World of Material Handling (WoMH)” will take place from June 4-15 in Mannheim, Germany. Under the motto “Simplexity. The Art of Smart Solutions.”, Linde Material Handling, Dematic and more than 30 other international intralogistics providers, will demonstrate how the increasing complexity with regard to goods handling in Industry 4.0 can be controlled by intelligent processes, solutions and products.

Over the course of eleven days and within an area of 13,000 square meters, experts will be able to ascertain how intralogistics processes can be made safer, faster and more efficient from the immediate present to beyond 2020. Several thousand visitors from more than 50 countries are expected at the conveniently located Maimarktgelaende in Mannheim, Germany.

Many companies see a significant need for action in order to make their logistics fit for the future. Industrial processes are changing more and more as a result of increasing digitization, cross-process networking, automation and robotics. But the requirements are complex: Which technologies are suitable for one’s own operations as well as contribute to business success? The answer is no longer individual products, but solutions that enable networked business processes. Networked industrial trucks, which collect data on vehicle status and work orders or autonomously perform recurring process steps, are a part of this solution.

As the largest exhibitor at WoMH 2018, Linde Material Handling helps customers reduce this complexity and master it in the long term. Linde makes this value proposition come alive under the slogan “Simplexity”. “We will be showing intralogistics processes live, thereby demonstrating the intelligent interplay of new energy systems, digital applications, security technologies and automation,” explains Tobias Zierhut, Vice President Product Management Industrial Trucks – Warehouse at Linde Material Handling. “We support our customers from the planning stage to the implementation of their projects. Based on the actual requirements, we offer solutions and products that are intuitive to use and easy to integrate into comprehensive systems and processes.”

Particular attention is once again paid to the special form of the presentation, which differs from that of conventional trade fairs: In addition to the live installations of practice-oriented processes, the WoMH site offers space for product presentations and tests as well as for plenary events, workshops and personal exchange with experts. Guided tours and individually customized information provide visitors with concrete insights into the intralogistics of the future and the fascinating solutions available.
