Grimsby, Ontario, Canada (September 27, 2010) – Cimcorp, a global leader in automated bakery order fulfillment, announces the launch of its MultiPick robotic gantry system at IBIE 2010 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Cimcorp developed the innovative picking solution to meet the need for fast order fulfillment with reduced costs, greater capacity, 100% accuracy and improved traceability and logistics in perishable food applications.
The MultiPick combines buffer storage and order fulfillment in a single automated system. Fresh inventory is stored in stackable plastic totes – with each stack comprising a single SKU – on the floor beneath the MultiPick gantry system. One or more MultiPick robots can pick any number of totes from a stack at a time in the correct order for the dispatch schedule. Orders are loaded into vehicles in an optimal delivery sequence that saves time, energy and increases customer satisfaction. At the end of a shift, MultiPick can also automatically empty the entire picking area for faster cleaning.
The Cimcorp MultiPick is a flexible solution with a user-friendly interface and software that can easily be reprogrammed to add more SKUs, enabling bakeries to cost-effectively scale their operations to meet daily, weekly, monthly and seasonal order fluctuations.
MultiPick warehouse controls integrate seamlessly with WMS systems, providing real time reporting on its task status from goods receiving, buffering to picking, replenishment, order consolidation, palletizing, loading and dispatch.
