OSARO, Sealed Air to Demonstrate End-to-End Robotic Bagging
OSARO, which develops machine-learing-enabled robotics for e-commerce, said it will demonstrate the latest innovation for material handling, logistics, and fulfillment operations at the upcoming ProMat 2023 event in Chicago. The company has teamed with Sealed Air (SEE) and NPSG Global to demonstrate how robotics, coupled with automated bagging, can enable distribution centers to optimize operations.
NPSG Global is a leading designer of e-fulfillment warehouse implementation services, and a member of the OSARO Partners Alliance program. The OSARO Robotic Bagging System pairs robots powered by OSARO’s advanced vision software with SEE’s AUTOBAG brand high-speed bagging system. OSARO’s autonomous piece-picking robot integrates with existing logistics facilities to fulfill orders quickly and efficiently. The system is now available as a ‘drop-in’ upgrade to either existing or new fulfillment operations.
At the NPSG booth, the two companies will demonstrate the picking and bagging of apparel, which represents a large proportion of poly bag packaging demand in e-commerce.
“Automating the packaging/pack out of the e-commerce and fulfillment process will bring significant efficiencies and value to operators as we are seeing from early adopters,” said Bryan Knott, vice president of business development in NPSG Global’s Product and Automation Division. “We are excited to showcase the OSARO robotic bagging solution.”
“This pairing streamlines the deployment of robotics with automated bagging for customers, providing a complete and scalable solution for a high-demand need in the face of persistent labor shortages,” said OSARO CEO Derik Pridmore. “We look forward to putting our robot to work with equipment from a trusted and experienced supplier like SEE.”
“Automation is key to helping our customers be successful. It helps them meet demand, increase operational efficiency, and accelerate innovation and transformation within their industries. Our work with companies like OSARO is a great example of two companies using their combined capabilities to showcase that for the industries we serve,” said Scott Keefauver, SEE’s executive director of marketing, Americas Equipment & Automation.
Unlike conventional automation products, OSARO’s robotic systems offer unmatched object recognition and manipulation that augment bagging productivity, delivering robust and efficient automation in a wide variety of logistics applications. Operating with minimal human oversight, 24×7, the OSARO Robotic Bagging System is capable of packing and shipping a wide range of SKUs.
Fulfillment centers, warehouses, and direct-to-consumer (DTC) e-commerce centers can now upgrade and streamline order fulfillment by pairing OSARO’s sophisticated pick-and-place robotics with equipment from SEE, a leader in packaging automation.
