Kennesaw, Georgia, February 8, 2022 - CoGri USA, specialists in the design, repair, and upgrade of industrial concrete flooring, will be exhibiting at MODEX, Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta. Their team of experts will be on-hand to offer advice on the most vital element of any warehouse operation that utilizes Materials Handling Equipment (MHE) and robotic systems – the floor.
Floor Flatness Testing
CoGri USA carries out floor flatness testing for warehouses that use MHE and mobile MHE, such as Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR), Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV), and Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS). Thus, enabling highly optimized warehouse floors for smooth and efficient operations.
CoGri USA test floors in Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) warehouses, including those utilizing fully automated and semi-automated systems where VNA trucks are in use. This ensures that the various degrees of flatness required in relation to the height of the racking system are met. Remedial grinding using CoGri’s world-leading laser-guided grinding system, the Laser Grinder®, can achieve super-flat or even ultra-flat floor specifications for VNA operations.
Floor Repair and Refurbishments
CoGri USA also specializes in prolonging the life and improving the performance of all worn and damaged concrete floors, with services such as concrete slab repair, resin floors, floor screed, polished concrete, joint stabilizers, and floor maintenance.
Importance of the Floor for the Integration of Robotics
CoGri USA General Manager, Chad Hixon, comments on the upsurge in automated systems being used throughout America, “Although the adoption of automated systems in warehouses is increasing at a rapid pace, it might come as a surprise to some that modern warehouse floors aren’t always designed to work well with robotic systems.”
He continues, “Robotics manufacturers have flooring requirements that the construction industry may struggle to understand. This is where CoGri USA can help, as we are able to develop floor specifications that meet mobile MHE’s needs but are easily understood by the construction industry; thus, allowing them to deliver the appropriate platform.”
Testing Automated Warehouse Floors
CoGri USA tests automated warehouse floors to enable compliance with manufacturers’ specifications. They use the latest in digital floor flatness testing equipment to ensure floor flatness, levelness, curvature, and step transitions are met. Also, surface characteristics such as surface gloss, friction, micro-roughness, and abrasion resistance.
CoGri USA will be demonstrating their Robotics Profileograph at the show. Manufactured in-house by their UK based team, CoGri Engineering, this Profileograph is used to identify areas of the floor out of tolerance and requiring corrective grinding.
