Piece Picking:

Goods-to-Robot Picking

The Ultimate in Automated Split Case Picking

Dematic Goods-to-Robotic Picking solutions combine high-density, secure storage with the high-speed accuracy of robotic picking, eliminating the need for picking labour and achieve highest level of pick accuracy. Robotics select, grip, lift, and place individual items of varying sizes and shapes in the last stage of the fulfilment operation.

Dematic Goods-to-Robotic Picking solutions are ideal for specific categories of small, lightweight SKUs — personal care items, cosmetics, packaged food, office supplies, and variety of other package types, shapes, and fragility. Dematic iQ software manages operation to ensure faster order fulfilment with fewer mis-shipments and returns.

How Goods-to-Robot Picking Works

  1. Inventory is received at decanting workstations where operators scan bar codes and transfer items into inventory totes.
  2. Inventory totes are conveyed and automatically stored in the high density storage buffer.
  3. When needed, inventory totes are retrieved and directed to robotic picking cells.
  4. The vision system of the robot verifies items and transfers required items from the inventory tote into the order container.
  5. When an order container is complete, it is automatically routed to the packing area.
  6. Inventory totes return to the high-density storage buffer.
