GreyOrange launches 12,000 parcel-per-hour sortation system
The GreyOrange Flexo™ is a scalable, modular sortation system
Robotics and warehouse automation company GreyOrange, has launched its latest modular sortation system, designed for modern distribution and logistics centres serving retail, and courier and express companies. The Flexo™ robotics system Flexo can handle up to 12,000 parcels per hour sorting up to hundreds of destinations; including common post and courier items up to 15 kgs (33 pounds).
GreyOrange says that the system has plug-and-play modular components that can be added at any time without incurring downtime and can be easily scaled to meet evolving business needs to handle large peaks, and reduced during non-peak hours to minimise operating costs. The company says that it can be installed in potentially as little as 15 days due to “its simple design, modularity and standardisation”.
Samay Kohli, CEO and Co-founder, GreyOrange, highlighted, "Our new robotics systems offer the type of flexible automation, as opposed to rigid automation, that modern warehouses need to operate with agility in a complex environment. GreyMatter, our AI-enabled Warehouse Execution Platform, makes all the difference in unlocking new levels of productivity. Flexo is cost-efficient and makes the system more investment-friendly. Capacity can be increased easily with the addition of more Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) as the business grows."
Sid Chatterjee, Vice President -- Products, GreyOrange, added, "The unique feature of the Flexo modular sortation system is its fleet of AMRs. These carry parcels from inducts - where parcels arrive - to its sort destination, using the most efficient path determined by Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning algorithms. These robots perform high-speed sortation, similar to a fixed conveyor sorter conventional sorting systems, with added advantages such as the ability to add sorting capacity during peak periods, much faster deployment, easier layout updates, and modular components that can be individually turned off when not in use."
GreyOrange has customer sites located in USA, South America, Europe and Asia.
