GreyOrange Flexo modular sortation system

Thursday, 07 March, 2019 | Supplied by: Advanced Warehouse Solutions

Robotics and warehouse automation company GreyOrange has launched its latest modular sortation system, designed for modern distribution and logistics centres serving retail, courier and express companies.

The Flexo modular robotic sortation system is designed to fit well in most warehouses due to its fluidic layouts, requiring minimal additional infrastructure. The AI-enabled robotics system can be scaled to meet evolving business needs to handle large peaks, and reduced during non-peak hours to minimise operating costs.

The system utilises GreyMatter, the company’s AI-enabled warehouse execution platform. Capacity can be increased easily with the addition of more autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) as the business grows.

The system’s fleet of AMRs carries parcels from inducts — where parcels arrive — to their sort destination, using the most efficient path determined by AI and machine learning algorithms. The robots perform high-speed sortation, similar to a fixed conveyor sorter in conventional sorting systems, with added advantages such as the ability to add sorting capacity during peak periods, faster deployment, easier layout updates, and modular components that can be individually turned off when not in use.

Designed with no single point of failure, Flexo can handle up to 12,000 parcels per hour, including common post and courier items up to 15 kg, sorting up to hundreds of destinations.
