Geek+ introduced PopPick, a goods-to-person solution designed to revolutionize the picking station.
The multi-machine combines high-density solution RoboShuttle Next Gen, integrating high-density tote-picking robots with the efficiency and flexibility of floor-based picking robots.
“In less than 6 years, we’ve managed to help global brands adjust and grow using intelligent robot solutions,” says Liu Kai, co-founder and VP of smart warehouse products at Geek+. “The consistent flow of industry insights and experience allows us to provide solutions that match market conditions. Today, there is a general shortage of labor and space, and this issue will keep growing as global e-commerce continues to drive the demand for more warehouses. Both PopPick and RoboShuttle Next Gen are long-term solutions that help businesses make the most of available space through intelligent organization and flexible handling of different types of storage units and labor by optimizing the picking process at the workstation.”
From PR Newswire:
- PopPick is compatible with different types of storage units such as totes and cartons. These are stored densely in an inventory area using pallets or mobile racks of 3.7 meters height for 50% more storage density compared with the original goods-to-person system.
- One rack can store up to 60 totes and be customized to store goods of varying sizes in an optimized way allowing four times more transportation efficiency.
- Once incoming orders are registered, picking robots transfer pallets or mobile racks to a PopPick station where intelligent robot arms effectively retrieve totes or boxes of ordered goods and give them to the operator in two picking points, enabling three times throughput capacity.
