Online shopping continues to outperform traditional retail. The need to ship and track larger quantities of goods in narrowing delivery windows, means retailers and package company’s want to implement new technologies to remain competitive.
Sorting is the process of identifying packaging items like boxes and envelopes. Packaging items are often moved via a conveyor belt for sorting or singularizing to specific destinations. Many companies are reporting difficulties finding personnel to perform the associated manual tasks.
Meet ROSI: our robotic singulating solution. With it, we are able to process a variety of common packaging formats at high speed. We can do this through expert combination of robot, gripper, vision technology.
What are the greatest benefits of robotic sortation?
Extremely reliable personnel
By using a robot, skilled employees are free to perform other tasks. If needed, the robot can also work 24 hours per day.
More volume regulation
Robot automation can help with the reduction of sortation bottlenecks that often accompany rising volume requirements.
Increased dexterity and accuracy
AWL’s robotized sortation systems are equipped with vision technology that can determine the shape of each object and understand how it must be picked.. This technology works closely with AI software and allows robots to pick a variety of objects quickly and reliably, with virtually no human intervention. With built-in label-reading abilities, the robot can also accurately sort and singularize boxes based on destination, size,or weight.
As an independent system integrator, AWL works together with various suppliers of robots, vacuum technology, and vision software, for example. To serve the logistics market even better, we have entered into a partnership with Fizyr, a vision software supplier. By integrating their software into our machine, automated picking in harsh logistics environments is possible.
