Berkshire Grey Inc., a provider of AI-enabled robotic solutions that automate supply chain processes, introduced its next-generation Robotic Product Sortation (BG RPS) solution for order fulfillment. This high-capacity automation solution robotically picks, sorts and packs individual items into outbound order containers without the need for operator interaction. The latest version of BG RPS includes a host of new features, including a dual wing design that increases speed by over 25% and doubles the simultaneous order processing capacity. This approach augments human labor to provide additional order processing capacity in existing operations and facilitates lights-out warehouse operations for customers looking to fully transform their fulfillment operations in the face of increasing labor shortages.
BG RPS is specifically designed to autonomously pick, sort and pack large orders in high-volume operations for store replenishment, e-commerce and B2B fulfillment. BG RPS systems easily integrate into existing operations to process growing e-commerce and less-than-case order volumes to help fulfillment operations overcome labor scarcity issues. The systems are compatible with a range of products, packaging and order types including health and beauty items, apparel, electronics, housewares, packaged food, childcare products, pet care, office supplies, toys, medical devices, pharmaceuticals and other general merchandise items.
“Our Robotic Product Sortation (BG RPS) solution uses AI and machine-learning software coupled with advanced machine vision, sensors, patented gripping technology and engineered material handling components to reimagine work for enterprises thriving in an on-demand world,” said Steve Johnson, COO at Berkshire Grey. “RPS is a proven solution that addresses some of the most labor-intensive processes our customers face in their fulfillment operations.”
