March 28, 2022

San Antonio-based Plus One Robotics, which develops 3D and AI-powered vision software for robots, has announced a partnership with Tompkins Robotics, a developer of robotic automation for distribution and fulfillment tasks. The two companies are teaming up to offer an automated picking solution that combines Plus One Robotics software with Tompkins’ tStort system.

The partnership will provide optimized solutions for high-volume e-commerce fulfillment and distribution centers, the companies said. The combined technologies are more flexible at allowing sorting and classifying new package shapes and types, which can then boost throughput rates while customers experience less downtime.

“We are thrilled to be combining Plus One’s 3D and AI software with Tompkins’ cutting-edge robots,” said Brent Barcey, vice president of business development at Plus One Robotics. “Supply chains and warehouses are stretched now more than ever with higher demands for faster material processing and the constant challenge of manpower shortages. This partnership will allow us to deploy scalable solutions for customers looking for significant reductions in operating times and costs.”

“Joining tSort with Plus One’s induction robots is marrying two innovative and cutting-edge robotics solutions that offer end customers expedited and accurate parcel and unit sortation,” said Mike Futch, president and CEO of Tompkins Robotics. “The combined system will provide for greater flexibility not only in warehouses, but in distribution centers as well as restocking in stores.”
At Plus One’s booth at MODEX, the companies were demonstrating the integrated operation. For more information on Plus One Robotics, visit their website here. For details on Tompkins Robotics, visit their website here.
