Axium Inc, a worldwide robotics engineering solutions provider of robotic systems and services for numerous markets, presented the ROP2000, its new robotic order picking solution.
This fully automated comprehensive solution is used for picking and palletizing complete mixed load pallets. In order to custom create pallets for product, robots built with slim end effectors, conveyors, stretch wrappers and intelligent Cube-IQ project planning software are used by the system.
Manufacturers are able to lessen shipping and inventory, at the same time shorten the supply chain process and optimize valuable floor space with this tremendously modular system. At the forthcoming North American Material Handling & Logistics Show (NA 2010) which will be held on April 26-29 in Cleveland, Ohio, Axium Inc is planning on displaying the capabilities of the system on their booth.
Axium Inc, established in 1989, is headquartered in Montreal, Canada. They have a sales office in Calgary and operate companies in Mexico and Croatia. They deliver the highest quality custom automated solutions to improve their customer's industrial processes' productivity, versatility and control.
Robert Jodoin, the president of Axium Inc, stated that retailers are increasing demanding build-to-order product pallets. Manufacturers and distribution centers faced not only with looking for a solution to resolve this demand but also to optimize efficiency. The company's ROP2000 system can build custom pallets quickly and efficiently while enhancing productivity, operations and working conditions.
The two articulated robot arms of the ROP2000 choose products from in-feed conveyors and puts them on a pallet that then goes down to a stretch paper. To instruct the robots on particular product placement to create the mixed load, the system makes use of Cube-IQ intelligent software.
According to a release, the ROP2000 solution from Axium can speed the time to market and this enables retailers to lessen the cost of labor and use floor space better.
