Working in tandem with the Skypod order-picking system, is the Skypicker. As the ‘the right arm of robotic order picking’, the Skypicker is a robotic arm, installed as part of your picking station. Installing the Skypicker adds another level of automation to your warehouse, with capabilities of simultaneously preparing four orders at once ready for the manual picking. The Skypicker’s purpose is to automate the tedious picking tasks, ensuring work strain is reduced for the warehouse workforce.
The Skypicker is controlled by Exotec’s impressive ASTAR software, which enables the robotic arm to pick the correct tote from the Skypod robots. It can move solid objects weighing over 4.4lbs, with a minimum surface of 0.8 x 0.8 inches. The Skypicker can also move at up to 4.5mph, ensuring speed is at forefront, enabling the most productive order picking solution.
The Exotec Skypicker adds more robotic capabilities to the LAC current robotic toolkit. We are already a part of the ABB Value Provider programme, and with strong relationships with the likes of Omron and Prime Robotics. Adding the Exotec Skypicker to our toolbox gives our customer base the best available robotics solutions on the market.
