Our robotic order picking solutions are designed to increase efficiency, reduce labor costs, eliminate errors and ensure traceability in any distribution center where substantial volumes are handled in plastic totes, crates, trays, cases or layers. Most applications are found within the distribution end of food and beverage manufacturing factories (dairies, bakeries, breweries, meat processing plants, etc.), and at distribution centers and cross-docking facilities.
We offer complete order fulfillment solutions that automate the entire distribution center or dispatch area of a manufacturer. In this case, once fresh products enter the robotic system from production, our order fulfillment system manages the entire material flow right up to the shipping dock.
The system’s ultra-high density storage ensures the buffer capability required to balance continuous production with specific delivery windows. The order picking systems can also be installed as subsystems, taking care of the full-crate picking, when the other goods are handled manually or through other picking techniques. This solution is our ‘island’ of automation.
