Apr. 13, 2018 – RightHand Robotics, a provider of robotic piece-picking solutions, say its team of automation partners have set a world record at Modex 2018.
RightPick workcells successfully picked and placed 131,072 items over the duration of the supply chain tradeshow at the Georgia World Congress Center. The workcells were featured in five exhibitor booths at the show, enabling partner companies to showcase how robotic piece-picking is suitable for their respective solutions for e-commerce fulfillment and intralogistics.
“We wanted to set a benchmark for piece-picking performance, and the show was a fantastic opportunity for it. We are grateful to our partners: Eurosort, Vecna Robotics, White Systems, and Universal Robots for helping us establish this record,” said Yaro Tenzer, co-founder of RightHand Robotics. “Our robots handle a wide range of everyday items at high throughput rates, delivering the reliability required by our customers, and sharing the final results from our MODEX fleet is a fun way to illustrate this point.”
RightHand’s team of four deployment engineers set up multiple workcells at the show in a day. Utilizing robots from Universal Robots, the cells were integrated with sortation systems, automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) and mobile robots at partner booths across both halls at the exhibition. Depending on the workflow, the RightHand systems achieved pick rates up to 1,000 units per hour across an assortment of items.
