Cimcorp will be showcasing its comprehensive range of order fulfillment solutions—from order picking systems for full-crate, case and layer picking to a diverse portfolio of systems offered together with its parent company, Murata Machinery Ltd. (Muratec).
Cimcorp’s 3D Shuttle for goods-to-person order picking is an automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) that fuses robot technology with a unique shuttle device to store and retrieve goods in stacked plastic totes, crates or bins. It then transports picked products on high-speed conveyors to warehouse employees manning ergonomic order picking stations. The 3D Shuttle is capable of handling up to 1,000 totes per hour thanks to its ability to retrieve any tote, from any location, in a single move. The rapid solution is ideal for e-commerce, retail and foodservice distribution.
Cimcorp’s solutions are designed to help warehouses overcome major challenges in modern distribution through automation. Such challenges include SKU proliferation, consumer demands for faster delivery, labor shortages and seasonal peaks.
“We offer our customers high-density storage, allowing them to house more inventory while using up to 50% less space,” says Rick Trigatti, president, Cimcorp Automation Ltd. “Rapid product handling ensures they can meet extremely short lead times, which is key in fast-paced markets like grocery and fresh food distribution, where product quality, safety and shelf life are dependent on the speed of fulfillment. Moreover, we can automate large segments of the end-to-end order fulfillment process, filling any operational gaps left by labor shortage and improving workplace safety. A modular design means facilities can scale their levels of automation and flexibly adapt to seasonal highs and lows.”
