What is an induction robot?
An induction robot picks items from a tote, carton, or conveyor belt and places them on an infeed belt. The robot combines the following elements:
- Robot arm
- Vision software
Why use an induction robot?
Within the automatic sorting process, the infeed is an area where a lot of operators are still required. They pick items from a tote, carton, or trolley and place them on the infeed belt or directly into the sorter.
This labor-intensive task is one of the hurdles in modern-day logistics. It is hard to find sufficient personnel to keep up with the explosive growth in e-commerce and parcel delivery. By automating this task it is possible to increase your throughput while keeping up quality and with the same number of personnel.
- 24/7 operation
- Reduce the number of errors
- Increase your operational efficiency
- Relieve your operators from repetitive and heavy work
The induction bot can be used as a singulator for the parcel, e-commerce, and fashion applications, where its core task is to pick items from bulk and put it on an infeed belt as single items.
While this robot is not a cobot, it is possible to combine human and robot picking on the same infeed. Therefore it is a perfect match for new or existing installations with an automatic infeed. An extension is always an option.
