Indianapolis, IN -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/09/2015 -- Packaging and distribution technology has quickly evolved to assist efforts to minimize the time between order and delivery. Greg Martin, Bastian Solutions' Field Applications Engineer, discussed improvements in order fulfillment automation in the company blog. Martin, explained, "Bastian Robotics has taken the next step into order fulfillment automation by designing systems that integrate with the back end of an AS/RS to fulfill à la carte orders and consolidate the items for shipment. These goods-to-robot, bin picking solutions can help reduce labor costs while simultaneously improving the speed and flexibility of custom order fulfillment."
"While robotic picking and packing technology is nothing new, the advances in 3-dimensional, randomly oriented item picking have been enormous. Camera and sensor costs are dropping and the ease of implementation/programming is improving. The time required to introduce and "learn" a new product and its respective geometry has reduced significantly with the packaged software solutions that are provided with many 3-D camera systems. Implementing a goods-to-robot picking system has never been more economically justifiable," described Martin.
Bastian Solutions will be exhibiting at ProMat 2015 (Booth #3953) held March 23-26 at Chicago's McCormick Place.
