Tompkins Robotics, which develops autonomous mobile robot (AMR) solutions, has announced the new tSort3D product, which expands the capabilities of the tSort suite by increasing the number of sort destinations while reducing the overall footprint. 

The tSort3D allows six to eight times the sort destinations within the same space as other traditional automated sortation systems, with the potential for thousands of sort destinations, volumes up to 20,000 an hour, creating a single very large batch pick process. Tompkins said the system is designed for fulfillment of items for customer e-commerce orders and other fulfillment workflows, including store replenishment and reverse logistics.

“tSort3D can handle the widest range of products compared to other automated sortation solutions on the market,” said Mike Futch, president and CEO of Tompkins Robotics. “tSort3D uses a tray as the carrier, while other solutions use a cross belt. Tompkins Robotics’ unique tray design ensures that round, cylindrical and oddly shaped items are compatible with our system. We can now deliver sortation designs that connect thousands of sortation destinations from any point of induction.”

The tSort3D is a modular system, allowing customers to implement quickly, grow and change as operational needs evolve, and multiply the destination density and volume of the sortation process, Tompkins said. A tSort3D system is mated with the Tompkins Robotics tSort solution for item sortation loading and routing the items to modules for order consolidation. The company said its system can be deployed in sites as small as the backroom of retail stores up to very large distribution and fulfillment centers.

“The capabilities of tSort3D far exceed other dense sortation systems on the market today,” said Futch. “This solution solves a pressing need in distribution and fulfillment operations that no previous automation solution has fully addressed.
