Waypoint’s Vector and EnZone Make Waves at MODEX 2018

By: Jason Walker | CEO & Co-Founder

MODEX 2018 was a huge success —  not only did we get a chance to showcase our flagship autonomous mobile robot, Vector, but we also celebrated the launch of our latest product, EnZone.

As the largest supply chain expo in North and South America, MODEX gave us a huge opportunity to meet with supply chain and manufacturing leaders from all over the world — and most importantly, show them some of the products we believe will empower their workforce, not replace them.

Our appearance at the major industry event also earned us some unexpected accolades.

Feature of Industrial Sage’s MODEX Video Series

Waypoint CEO and co-founder, Jason Walker, had the privilege to speak with Joseph Zuniga, an Account Executive at Industrial Sage, and be featured in Industrial Sage’s MODEX video series. Take a look at the conversation below.

Waypoint Earns “Standout Exhibit” Recognition

Waypoint’s booth, which featured Jason Walker, giving live demonstrations of Vector, was recognized by MODEX  as a “standout exhibit” for its “effective visual communication.”

“The most important thing to do at a trade show, or similar event, is to communicate your message effectively and quickly,” said Walker. “Doing that well is at the top of the list of objectives.”

MODEX’s evaluation team included the following comments when assessing our booth — “Graphics are eye-catching and communicate an effective value proposition using a minimum number of words — a powerful way to exhibit.”

Robotic Innovation on Full Display

One of the highlights of our trip to MODEX was getting a chance to showcase the game-changing capabilities of Vector, a fully autonomous, omni-directional robot with a 300lb payload and all-day battery life.

“Vector is designed to be the trusty helper for the current manufacturing workforce,” said Walker. “You don’t have to be a roboticist to put Vector to work. It is as easy to use as an elevator.”

Also on display was Waypoint’s new wireless, on-demand power system — EnZone — a high-power wireless charging dock that allows for ‘opportunity charging,’ giving your robot the ability to charge anywhere and any time it is paused during its regular work cycle.

“EnZone is designed to make Vector easier to set up and use,” said Walker. “But it’s also more than just your average charging dock — it’s also an on-demand power system for robot arms and payloads.”
