Gurgaon, Haryana -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/06/2015 -- Hi-Tech Robotic Systemz was positively profiled in Automation & Controls Today magazine prior to ProMat 2015 which takes place in less than three weeks. The article authored by manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, was titled, "Goods to Robot Picking Requirements for e-Commerce Omni-Channel Fulfillment." According to Cutler, the order picking AGVs (automated guided vehicles) or BOTS are used to move ordered products to trailer-loading area for distribution. Distribution center (DC) operations managers must ensure these vehicles are capable of executing multiple paths and bus routes, possess safety features including safety-class bumpers and laser range sensors for obstacle detection. It is critical to have multi-vehicle coordination and optional intersection management. These "labor" workers must integrate with central MES (manufacturing execution systems).
Hi-Tech Robotic Systemz utilizes goods-to-robot picking with a focus on automating e-commerce fulfillment centers. The company is making its North American debut at ProMat 2015 (booth #5521) in Chicago, IL in late March. According to Anuj Kapuria, Director & CEO, "For the last few years goods to person solutions for e-commerce omni-channel fulfillment have grown dramatically. While robotic picking and packing technology has been around for a decade the recent dimensional technology advancements have been extraordinary," and why the Indian-based firm is now bringing their solution to the North American market.
