Robotic and data-driven systems will be showcased
13 February 2020
Swisslog will demonstrate flexible robotics and intelligent automation based on the SynQ software platform at LogiMAT 2020.
The intralogistics specialist will feature its proprietary SynQ software platform that orchestrates automation systems as well as its ItemPiQ small item robotic picking solution. The benefits of Swisslog’s solutions include faster processes, greater flexibility and transparency across the entire system.
“We are one of the world's leading players in logistics automation and offer a variety of unique solutions,” according to Swisslog CEO Dr. Christian Baur. “We are also advancing new digital solutions that ensure a high degree of intelligence and flexibility in warehouses and distribution centres.”
Demand for these solutions is rapidly growing as they have moved beyond the research and development phase and are now being successfully deployed. LogiMAT visitors will be able to see these innovations up close and personal, specifically the ItemPiQ, ACPaQ and SynQ systems, Swisslog’s state-of-the-art warehouse management software. In addition to the company’s proprietary software portfolio, the Swiss intralogistics company will also be presenting SAP EWM solutions.
Small item picking
ItemPiQ is a fully automated robot order picking system. While the robot picks a wide variety of small items, it continuously learns by identifying the dimensions, weight and other characteristics of the product to be picked. It then adapts its gripping techniques accordingly, making the system increasingly efficient.
“The ItemPiQ is a market innovation that advances automation closer to applied artificial intelligence,” says Swisslog CEO Baur. “It features highly developed sensors.”
The solution is already being deployed in the USA combined with the AutoStore compact storage system. Customers in Europe are also in the process of deploying ItemPiQ.
ACPaQ is another fully automated robotic palletising solution with a modular design. It can be scaled for small, mid-size and large distribution centres with a throughput of up to 500,000 packages per day. Automatic storage systems, such as the CycloneCarrier shuttle system, can be fully integrated into warehouse systems, ensuring reliable and transparent operation. The Swisslog palletising software allows you to customise the palletising order to boost efficiency when filling store shelves.
Leading companies rely on Swisslog software
Swisslog's SynQ intelligent warehouse management software is now deployed in more than 200 customer projects. This software forms the core of a warehouse, orchestrating and improving all material flows and visualising them in real time and in 3D. In addition to traditional WMS functions for automatic and manual storage zones, SynQ also offers intelligent services. They may include virtual and augmented reality applications that streamline maintenance, employee training or spare parts management.
“Swisslog sees itself as a pioneer in digitisation,” confirms Dr. Christian Baur, “and is setting its sights beyond intralogistics.” Hall 1, Stand B51
