OSARO, which develops advanced robotic automation solutions, has announced a comprehensive robotics system for automated bagging. The system will be demonstrated at next week’s MODEX 2022 event in Atlanta.
The OSARO Automated Bagging Solution pairs robots powered by OSARO software with automated bagging machines from vendors such as PAC Machinery and Pregis. The autonomous piece-picking robot then integrates with existing logistics facilities to fulfill orders quickly and efficiently. OSARO said this is available immediately as a drop-in upgrade to either existing or new fulfillment operations.
“Warehouse and logistics operations globally are wrestling with an acceleration of consumer demand and a shortage of labor,” said Derik Pridmore, CEO of OSARO. “By automating common manual processes such as movement, storage and retrieval, and picking and placing, fulfillment centers and e-commerce operations can become more efficient and cost effective – and improve employee safety.”
Unlike conventional automation products, OSARO’s system offers unmatched object recognition and manipulation that augments bagging productivity, the company said. Operating with minimal human oversight, 24×7, the system can pack and ship a range of e-commerce items at a rate of 350 parts per hour. The system can be utilized by fulfillment centers, warehouses, and direct-to-consumer e-commerce centers.
“PAC Machinery provides innovative packaging solutions that give our customers a competitive edge,” said Greg Berguig, vice president of sales and marketing at PAC Machinery. “PAC Machinery poly-bagging systems, coupled with OSARO’s smart robots, are the fastest path to the next level of automation. This is the future of packing and fulfillment operations.”
