MODEX 2018, the most important provide chain occasion within the Americas, was the scene of a outstanding demo as RightHand Robotics, a frontrunner in robotic piece-picking options, drove a group of automation companions to set a world file: Over the period of the present on the Georgia World Congress Heart in Atlanta, 131,072 objects have been efficiently picked and positioned. The work cells, all showcasing UR robots with RightHand Robotics’ RightPick machine studying software program and grippers, have been featured in 5 exhibitor cubicles at MODEX, demonstrating how robotic piece-picking will increase the worth of their respective options for e-commerce achievement and intralogistics.
“We wished to set a benchmark for piece-picking efficiency, and the present was a improbable alternative for it. We’re grateful to our companions: Eurosort, Vecna Robotics, White Programs, and Common Robots for serving to us set up this file,” says Yaro Tenzer, co-founder of RightHand Robotics. “Our robots deal with a variety of on a regular basis objects at excessive throughput charges, delivering the reliability required by our prospects. Sharing the ultimate outcomes from our MODEX fleet is a enjoyable technique to illustrate this level.”
RightHand’s group of 4 deployment engineers arrange a number of work cells on the present in a day.
Using collaborative robots from Common Robots, the cells have been built-in with sortation techniques, automated storage and retrieval techniques (AS/RS), and cell robots at associate cubicles throughout each halls on the exhibition. “We’re happy that our collaborative robots have been the workhorses behind this file efficiency,” says Esben Østergaard, CTO at Common Robots. Relying on the workflow, the RightHand techniques achieved choose charges as much as 1,000 models per hour throughout an assortment of things, together with merchandise that the system had by no means seen earlier than. “Robotic piece-picking is straightforward to deploy and may present predictable capability for our prospects and people of our integration companions,” provides Tenzer.
