Cimcorp in the News: The Cimcorp MultiPick is a robotic materials handling solution that precisely controls and streamlines the entire material flow of a distribution center or dispatch area—from goods receiving and buffering to picking, replenishment, order consolidation, palletizing, loading and dispatch.
By design, MultiPick combines buffer storage and order picking into one seamless, automated operation. It can handle a variety of standard crates, bins and trays with rapid speed, 100-percent accuracy, optimal use of space, easy cleaning and improved labor savings.
The MultiPick solution can cover a large volume of goods in one working area. Any number of robots—each equipped with grippers designed specifically for handling the particular unit load—can be employed and tailored to the throughput demands of each facility. As product volumes grow due to demand or seasonality, warehouses can extend and scale up their number of robots as needed.
Computer-controlled by Cimcorp’s own Warehouse Control System (WCS), the system also collects data on its activities and material flow. Warehouse managers can then run detailed analysis of both dispatch operations and production planning, enabling further enhancements. Notably, MultiPick can be applied as part of a completely automated warehouse or operate as an “island of automation” and work together with other manual operations.
Cimcorp will showcase its MultiPick solution at Booth #S1218 during ProMat 2019.
