GRIPP stands for Gantry Robotic Intelligent Piece Picker. It’s a fully automatic, compact picking technology, equipped with an intuitive user interface, which can process up to 1,200 pieces per hour. The machine has been developed with the aim of increasing order picking throughput without increasing staffing.
The GRIPP, which is equipped with an intuitive user interface, is able to process pieces from one storage tote to twelve order totes or boxes. The great advantage of this is that presorting can be avoided and that the sequencing of the stock and order totes has more flexibility. Furthermore, GRIPP can both pick from and put to compartmentalized totes. In addition, the GRIPP is equipped with an extremely intelligent and flexible, customizable ‘gripper’. This gripper is equipped with self-learning software that, regardless of the shape, picks up the item to be picked in the correct way. This is because an ‘adaptive approach angle’ has been built into the software that ensures that the robot approaches the product from the correct angle. This allows the product to be picked up and put away precisely and with optimal grip.
