RightHand Robotics (Booth S1891) is demonstrating RightPick, a combined hardware and software solution that handles the key task of picking individual items or “piece-picking.”
With RightPick, businesses can reduce the cost and improve the reliability of e-commerce order fulfillment for pharmaceuticals, electronics, grocery, apparel and countless other industries. As e-commerce continues to grow, the trend is away from bulk or pallet-load handling toward single SKUs and piecemeal items.
Unlike traditional factory robots, RightPick handles thousands of different items using a machine learning backend coupled with a sensorized robot hand that works in concert with all industry-leading robotic arms. “The supply chain of the future is more about pieces than pallets,” said Leif Jentoft, co-founder. “RightHand can help material handling, 3PLs and e-commerce warehouses lower costs by increasing automation.”
