Robotic layer picking system
RMT Robotics announced the development of its new layer picking system using its 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.
