The system is designed to pick 300 SKUs at a rate of more than 250,000 cases per day.
March 22, 2011 – RMT Robotics has been awarded a contract to supply a large-scale robotic case picking solution for Brewer Distributor BDL. The system, which has a footprint of less than 40,000 square feet, is designed to pick 300 SKUs at a rate of more than 250,000 cases per day. The project is scheduled to start up late 2011. "Our decision go with the RMT Robotics case picking solution is based on the small footprint and innovative design coupled with the company’s reputation for developing systems that streamline operations and improve service performance which is in line with our strategic business goals,” said the Director of Information Technology for BDL. “We expect to see a significant increase in our throughput, order accuracy and overall productivity.” The automated case picking system consists of several robotic gantries, picking a mixture of loose cases and full layers. The system will provide 100 percent picking accuracy, reduce product damage and dramatically improve product traceability. An intelligent replenishment routine ensures the size of the system is minimized by storing only the inventory needed to fulfill orders. About RMT Robotics RMT Robotics, a Cimcorp Oy Company, is a global company that manufactures and integrates turnkey robotic gantry-based order fulfillment solutions designed to reduce operating costs and streamline distribution operations. To extend the flexibility of robotics beyond a fixed workspace, RMT Robotics also manufacturers and integrates ADAM, the category-defining intelligent mobile robot. The ADAM system redefines the purpose and function of industrial AGV’s by performing intelligent robotic transport of materials in complex, random origin to random destination industrial environments. Since 1981, RMT Robotics has been recognized around the globe as an innovator in robotics materials handling. RMT helps our customers compete in an increasingly aggressive and price-sensitive global marketplace by providing best-in-class robotic handling solutions.Learn More
