Vanderlande to showcase Smart Item Robotics at ProMat 2017

vanderlande smart items robotics SIR postal and parcel technologyVanderlande is set to reveal its Smart Item Robotics (SIR) technology for the e-commerce market at ProMat 2017.

SIR technology focuses on the robotized handling of single items, such as order-picking and infeed loading.

Vanderlande will also demonstrate its ‘bin to bin’ picking concept, in which a collaborative robot – based on SIR principles – can operate independently or together with an operator. The robot also optimizes order carton filling by gently stacking items, which could further be utilized for picking up to 600 items per hour.

Ruben Jakobs, Vanderlande’s director of e-commerce, said, “Operators can work safely with the robot unit without using a fenced cell. This creates a low-risk working environment with high flexibility.

“Our state-of-the-art software will allow the robot to pick the majority of products without the need for teaching, which is a huge benefit considering the ever-increasing range of products in e-commerce.”

To learn more about Vanderlande’s product range, visit Stand S3912 at ProMat 2017 in Chicago from April 3-6.
