Element Logic Launches Robotic Piece-Picking Solution at IMHX
6th September 2019
Element Logic is launching a robotic piece-picking solution that combines their expertise as AutoStore system integrators with technology from leaders in piece-picking, RightHand Robotics (RHR). The new solution will be showcased at IMHX in Birmingham, September 24-27.
The robotic piece-picking solution combines award-winning technology from RightHand Robotics with Element Logic software and AutoStore. The solution integrates with any warehouse management software or enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, enabling customers to decrease operational costs and boost overall profit.
Range, Rate, and Reliability RHR’s technology excels at the 3Rs of robotic piece-picking: Range, Rate, and Reliability. The technology is able to pick and place a wide range of items, fulfilling orders at high speeds while ensuring that customers consistently receive what they ordered. The system uses vision, machine learning, and an advanced multi-function gripper with gripping fingers and a suction cup that can be used independently or in tandem with humans at the same picking station for maximum flexibility.
“The Element Team’s expertise in warehouse automation has made the project run smoothly, and RHR is excited to be working together to connect robotic picking with customers’ operations,” said Leif Jentoft, co-founder of RightHand Robotics. “With proven reliability and millions of picks, the technology provides an obvious advantage in today’s environment of shrinking labour and increasing customer pressure for supply chain performance.”
Element Logic offers Design and Consulting services to ensure that customers know how this solution can work for them. This includes a pickability assessment where customers have the option to see for themselves how well the robotic piece-picking solution picks and places their SKUs, followed by a detailed report with recommendations for optimal use tailored to their specific needs. “After a long test phase to ensure that our robotic piece-picking solution will produce profitable results for our customers, we are now ready to launch our collaborative robotic piece-picking solution at IMHX. Our solution is ready to run with any warehouse management software to optimize warehouse performance. The interface is intuitive, reducing the need for training,” says Steinar Overbeck Cook, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at Element Logic.
