Robotics Provider Exotec Expands Product Portfolio with Three Modular Innovations

Exotec, a global warehouse robotics provider, expands its product portfolio with a new conveyor system, an improved picking solution, and new proprietary warehouse software. As inflation, economic headwinds, and labor shortages continue to place mounting pressure on supply chains, businesses around the world are looking for ways to address their immediate needs while also positioning themselves for an unpredictable future. To help meet these needs, Exotec is releasing a new conveyor system, updated robotic picking solution, and proprietary warehouse software that all perfectly integrate with the Skypod system. Each of these new solutions leverages Exotec’s signature modular design allowing customers to meet their dynamic business needs by easily adding new solutions to their existing systems.

Skypath is a modular conveyor system that can reach a maximum throughput of 2,500 totes per hour. The modular design consists of straight, curved, and inclined building blocks that fit most logistic needs and layouts and can easily adapt to customer needs.

Deepsky is an end-to-end warehouse software that seamlessly integrates Exotec technology with most warehouse management and control systems as well as third-party automation equipment. It automatically collects data and feeds it into pre-configured dashboards for immediate visibility and optimizes for consistent performance.

Skypicker is an intelligent picking solution for modern warehouses. It features machine learning-based vision that automatically detects each item’s dimensions to intelligently place items in preparation containers in a way that optimizes for the available space and smooth package handling. Improvements to the system allow the Skypicker to reliably reach outputs of up to 600 items per hour.

“With these innovations, we are further enabling our customers to run efficient, scalable, and modular warehouses that flex to fit their unique needs,” said Romain Moulin, CEO and co-founder of Exotec. “Our work with more than 30 industry-leading brands provides us with a unique perspective on the most pressing warehousing needs and allows us to continuously innovate to unlock even more value for our customers.”
