Visit Tompkins International at Modex Booth #B727

See all of Tompkins Internationals new enterprises at Modex.

Over the past year Tompkins International has added several interconnected enterprises with different purposes. All these new products, services, and innovations will be presented at Modex in the Tompkins International booth #B727.


MonarchFx, an alliance of Tompkins International, has created a distributed logistics network of fulfillment centers to support retailers and brands shipping direct-to-consumer. MonarchFx is a partnership of logistics services providers, leading supply chain technologies and automation, and transportation service providers, coming together to provide sellers one-stop eFulfillment with high levels of service with reasonable pricing.

As MonarchFx grew, Tompkins International started to explore a variety of technologies that would enable efficient and effective each picking. The answer was found in China, creating the unveiling of Tompkins Robotics. Tompkins Robotics has released t-Sort, the t-Sort system performs much like a tilt tray. However, the unique and exciting difference is it uses completely independent robots. This is the equivalent of having a tilt tray with no track, allowing each robot to travel to any divert or induction station independently along the shortest path. A unique feature is the system is purchased on a seasonal or annual basis, deferring the capital investment and fully utilizing the asset at all times, unlike a traditional sorter that one buys for their long-term growth plan.

Finally, to optimize warehouse asset utilization, Tompkins International created The Connected Warehouse® powered by SensorThink. SensorThink is the first digital platform to bring The Connected Warehouse to life. Every piece of information can be collected, processed, and analyzed, allowing you to see and analyze your operations in a way never possible. For the first time, tie all the elements of production, performance, and execution into one platform. SensorThink is a Warehouse Execution System (WES), Internet of Things (IoT) platform, and data analytics engine built for the warehouse in the Digital Age. In addition, SensorThink can manage your operations, security, maintenance, and environmental controls in one place. SensorThink truly is a control tower for all your warehouse operations.

Both the Tompkins Robotics and The Connected Warehouse systems are available for implementation into operations outside of MonarchFx. To better understand all of these enterprises visit the Tompkins International booth #B727 at Modex.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
