Jody Addicott, a design engineer for Lift Technologies Inc. in Westminster, S.C., couldn’t help but note the robotics on display at the FANUC Robots America Corp. booth during the ProMat show at Chicago’s McCormick Place South. Interviewed by Elliot Maras, managing editor of Food Logistics, Addicott said the robotic handling system allowed for a small, light-weight product to be moved quickly. He thinks robotics will be replacing workers in distribution warehouses faster than many people think.
