OPEX® Corporation, a global leader in next generation automation for almost 50 years, is expanding the capabilities of its leading-edge ‘Sure Sort® Warehouse Automation’ technology to incorporate radio frequency identification (RFID) scanning to meet client needs and increase operational speed and efficiency.
A scalable, reliable, high-throughput sorting system, Sure Sort has long been a preferred warehouse automation solution for distribution centers, retail stores, and third-party logistics companies that look for cost-effective and accurate order handling, cross-docking, and reverse logistics.
OPEX has added the option of RFID scanning capabilities to meet growing needs from clients, especially apparel manufacturers and retailers. Bar codes sometimes get hidden in garments and require additional operator handling, which slows operations. Because RFID employs radio waves, scanning does not require a visual connection. In addition to the apparel industry, RFID scanning is popular for cell phone and pharmaceuticals processing to name a few applications.
“The expansion to RFID is just another example of how we live our values and principles to listen and be responsive to customers’ needs,” said Alex Stevens, President, OPEX Warehouse Automation. “It is another great tool in our growing portfolio of modular and flexible warehouse automation technology and solutions.”
With increasing labour costs and supply chain challenges, the demand for more responsive warehouse automation technology has never been more crucial. Sure Sort robotic delivery vehicles, iBOTs®, quickly and accurately process up to 2,400 items each hour with as little as three operators, and have the ability to recharge as they travel through the system.
OPEX will be exhibiting at NRF 2023 at the Javitz Center in New York City January 15th-17th. The Sure Sort automated put wall will be on site in OPEX’s booth #769. Attendees can see a live demonstration as well as meet with automation experts during the expo.
