Order Fulfillment

Logistics applications typically consist of multiple operations spanning several industry segments. On the order fulfillment side, automated tasks can include order picking, tote picking, depalletizing and mix-case palletizing. Some examples include:

Fixed cameras over pallets are fed to an application that can identify individual boxes, even if they are tightly packed or deformed.
Intelligent motion planning software enables robots to pick and package unsorted items with speed and consistency.
3D vision and inspection ensures order accuracy and determines the best path for the robot for picking and mixed-sku case packing..
Complex computing automates the palletizing of randomly sized and ordered cases for shipping to regional centers and retailers.
Courier + Freight

For courier companies, warehouse, freight and delivery services, postal automation tasks may include parcel induction and sortation, container loading/unloading, tote handling and truck unloading. Some examples include:

Robots with purpose-built grippers utilize cameras and barcode readers to handle randomly-presented packages.
In the sorting of parcels, robots are used with vision and external axes to ensure barcodes can be read in downstream processes.
Sort boxes, polybags, and envelopes from bulk input flow into destination containers over 50% faster than manual labor.
In this sorting solution, a robotic cell the size of a parking spot can sort 700-1000 pieces per hour into 75 different destinations.
A wheeled robot is mounted to a height-adjustable platform that drives in and out of a trailer, gradually backing out until loading is complete.
Arrange unsorted mixed cartons onto a container or pallet with fast and flexible vision technology. This stationary robot loads packages into containers which can then be loaded into trailers.
