Liberty Robotics recently announced the launch of its AI-powered VPack packaging system robot.
Liberty Robotics launched VPick and Vpack, its latest offerings in robotic vision and material handling, aimed at enhancing efficiency, reliability and safety in warehouse environments.

Liberty Robotics, a Michigan-based supplier of 3D volumetric vision guidance systems for robot applications, recently announced the official launch of its flagship suite of robotic palletizing and depalletizing offerings, VPick and VPack.

The robots use AI vision systems to enhance warehouse efficiency and reliability, according to Liberty Robotics, formerly known as Liberty Reach until early 2024.

VPick for picking options

VPick guides robots in warehouse, distribution and fulfillment centers. The system enhances warehousing processes with its accurate 'pick on first sight' capabilities, achieving near 100% pick rates, according to the company.

VPick is designed to pick from a diverse array of pallet types, including mono, mixed and rainbow pallets. It also supports a wide range of operations such as palletizing, depalletizing and pallet decanting. VPick is equipped to provide reliable picking capabilities without the necessity for deep learning or pre-training box parameters.

Its design ensures consistent performance despite changes in ambient lighting, supporting high production speeds. The system includes four features, each tailored to address different requirements in the material handling sector:

  1. Single pick of uniform box type: Tailored for depalletization of single boxes, enhancing efficiency in material handling.
  2. Multi-pick of uniform box type: Allows simultaneous depalletization of multiple boxes, optimizing throughput.
  3. Delayering of uniform box type: For delayering entire layers of boxes, ensuring seamless operation in high-volume environments.
  4. Single pick of mixed box type: Adapts to varied box sizes within mixed pallets, maintaining precision and consistency.

Each function of the VPick suite incorporates slipsheet and empty pallet detection, comprehensive fault troubleshooting and variable pick tool alignment, all of which are designed to support high levels of picking accuracy and operational reliability.

“These products are crafted to tackle the hurdles encountered in contemporary warehousing and logistics industries, which are in need of automation solutions that are both efficient and dependable,” said Bob Berry, president & CEO of Liberty Robotics. “We are excited to roll out these new products to industry.”

VPack for packaging options

VPack offers a novel approach to robotic packaging, featuring ad hoc picking capabilities and digital twin technology to support efficient operations. The system measures box dimensions on conveyors in real-time, determining their optimal position on pallets for maximum packing efficiency.

VPack is equipped with high-accuracy sensors for precise box detection, and its software simulates thousands of packing scenarios to find the most efficient arrangement. Key features of the system include smart pallet optimization, box anomaly detection, precision box handling technology, an enhanced parcel recovery system and dual-mode pallet handling, all designed to improve packaging efficiency and reliability.

“We are proud to unveil VPick and VPack, which incorporate our proprietary AI vision techniques that build upon current machine learning tools to enhance performance,” said G. Neil Haven, CTO of Liberty Robotics. “We believe that by enhancing the precision and efficiency of robotic material handling systems, we can offer solutions that support our clients in overcoming their operational challenges and achieving their business goals.”
