RMT Robotics Ltd: Layer picking system
New tooling is capable of layer picking 95% of all consumer goods case configurations.
RMT Robotics®, a Cimcorp Oy company announces the development of its new layer picking system using its state-of-the-art, patent-pending robotic layer picking tool.
Using a combination of vacuum and clamping technology, the new tooling has the capability of picking 95 percent of consumer products on the market today including corrugate or boxboard cases, shrink wrap products, bottles, tubs and open trays. Patterns with voids and tier sheets are also handled with ease.
By incorporating the new tooling, RMT’s layer picking system has the capability of picking multiple layers at once as well as picking and placing entire pallet loads, allowing for simple and secure inventory replenishment, especially with unstable loads.
The new tooling will allow for increased throughput and reduced footprint in automated systems, making it ideal for food, beverage and consumer goods distribution centers. Several layer picking tools are currently being utilized on a hybrid case and layer picking project for one of the largest beer distributors in North America.
“RMT takes great pride in our ability to engineer and design state-of-the-art robotic solutions to handle critical tasks in distribution centers where pick accuracy, reliability and cost effectiveness are paramount,” said Derek Rickard, distribution systems manager, RMT Robotics. “The new layer pick tooling used in conjunction with RMT’s high-speed gantry systems provides an ideal order picking solution for customers with a high-SKU inventory consisting of a wide variety of packaging types.”
