Schaefer Systems International showcased its award-winning Robo-Pick fully-automatic picking cell at CeMat 2011. Schaefer Robo-Pick was recognised in early 2011 as the LogiMAT Product of the Year.
Robo-Pick is a fully-automatic picking cell that can be seamlessly integrated into existing warehouse architectures.
Designed to set new standards in picking speeds and picking quality, Schaefer Robo-Pick can pick up to 2400 picks per hour. The fully-automatic picking cells are suitable for fast as well as slow-moving products, offering quick ROI with superior picking quality and reliability.
Schaefer Robo-Pick incorporates an innovative two-step image processing system that automatically recognises the position of the products on the tray and controls the universal picking robot. This eliminates the need to enter article characteristics into the system and physically placing articles into special positions in the storage tote.
The image recognition system has been specially designed for the SRP to analyse and assess the storage trays. The required products are picked into the corresponding order tote by the SRP in a matter of seconds.
Additionally, the SSI Schaefer warehouse management system enables the user to coordinate the sequence of order and storage totes to make best possible use of the efficiency of the picking systems.
The Schaefer Robo-Pick fully-automatic picking cell is an economical system where the investment cost is less than corresponding conventional ‘goods to man’ stations with equivalent picking performance.
