Dematic has introduced its Robotic Piece Picking Module designed to improve accuracy and productivity during the last touch — the point where items of varying sizes and shapes are processed by hand — of the fulfillment process.
Traditionally, the last touch has been a manual process, but the Robotic Piece Picking Module completes the automation of the fulfillment chain. The module selects, grips, lifts and places individual items of varying sizes into containers or bins to complete a shipment. It delivers pick rates of 600–1,200 items per hour ensuring on time delivery of a wide variety of SKUs, such as personal care items, cosmetics, packaged food, office supplies and variety of other package types, shapes and fragility.
The Robotic Piece Picking Module is part of a suite of automated solutions built around process improvements, robotic technology, vision and software within the Dematic Robotics Center of Excellence.
