Courtesy: Bastian SolutionsBastian Solutions offers the Order Picking Robotic AGV (OPRA). With the ability to operate 24/7, throughput is increased and labor costs are reduced. The system can build two mixed pallets every 15 minutes. Multiple units can work side by side or safely integrate with manual workforce if needed. OPRA uses a standard order picker programmed to operate as an AGV. A robot arm and customized end-of-arm tool (EoAT) is added to create an automated picking system. Using the custom EoAT and programmable vision system, OPRA can pick various products while following specific pallet build sequences when SKUs vary in size or weight. Pallet heights of 65 in. can be created to take full advantage of the vertical space within shipping containers.
