GRAND RAPIDS, MI, USA—March 6, 2023 — ProMat 2023 attendees can visit Configura at booth #S2588 for a hands-on demonstration of Essential Pallet Racking and the Twinmotion Extension. We are also excited to announce the soft launch of CET Essentials for the material handling industry, which will include Essential Deep Storage, Essential Conveyors and more. These additions will build upon the established foundation provided to CET users to design efficient, modern warehouses.
In addition to the hands-on demonstrations of CET Material Handling available at the booth during ProMat 2023, Configura will also be debuting new industry metrics from a focused survey and analysis gathered from across United States, Japanese and German material handling markets. The survey explores the impact of factors such as automation, labor shortages and sustainability inside modern warehouses. The data underscores design trends and functionality of the material handling industry and the people who work in it.
About Essential Pallet Racking for CET Material Handling
Developed for 3PLs, integrators, small manufacturers and warehouse managers, Essential Pallet Racking offers ease in designing warehouse spaces while providing a bill of materials in real time. Salespeople and engineers alike can easily lay out a storage space using visual components and accurate metrics.
Essential Pallet Racking greatly accelerates the design process, giving users the ability to export product counts and schematics for accurate pricing, specification and ordering. The 3D component offers realistic photo-like renderings that allow designers and decision-makers to visualize spaces.
“As a former racking salesman, the capability of CET Material Handling plus the Essential Pallet Racking Extension is a game changer,” said Configura Business Development Manager, March Stuemer. The market is asking for the fast quotations and 3D visualizations that CET Material Handling provides. This solution eliminates the need to use multiple tools to design spaces, improves training times and reduces human error.
About the Twinmotion Extension
Developed in collaboration with Epic Games, a leading interactive entertainment company, the Twinmotion Extension is an architectural visualization tool. Twinmotion allows architects and designers to easily create stunning and immersive 3D renderings, panoramas, flythroughs and animations of products, buildings, cities and even entire landscapes.
When users complete space planning and finish material selections in CET Material Handling, they can transfer drawings to Twinmotion to modify lighting, add weather effects or insert people to show how they might interact within the space.

About CET Material Handling
Based on technology created by Configura, CET Material Handling is an intelligent, highly visual and intuitive space-planning software that simplifies specifying and selling of products for the material handling industry. It’s a complete solution that quickly and accurately handles every step of the sales and order process. Symbols represent manufacturers’ products and look and behave like actual products. Users drag and drop components into 2D and 3D virtual environments and behind the scenes, the software tracks components, calculates pricing and prevents user errors. Users can create and generate layouts, quotes, photorealistic renderings, movies, installation drawings, reconfigurations and bills of materials – in other words, everything needed to propose on work and place orders. CET Material Handling is the future of space planning. More information at https://www.configura.com/industries/material-handling
