Case and crate picking robots designed for dairy industry.
Grimsby-based robotic gantry maker and integrator, RMT Robotics, will introduce both a case and crate picking robotic system at the 2011 International Dairy Show in Atlanta. According to the company, the systems reduce the footprint of standard pick modules; pick in exact customer sequences; and provide complete traceability of products. The gantry-based robots will also have multiple layout options, operate in chill stores to – 20°C, and can handle a large variety of dairy products, including milk, cream, yogurts, and cheese.
Using an advanced automated controls system, cases or crates will be delivered in exactly the desired pallet-build sequence for automated mixed palletizing at the dock. The system also provides precise information on the location of all products as well as the ability to isolate SKUs in the event of a problem or recall.
