ORLANDO, Fla., March 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Tompkins Robotics has created a new robotic application to automate the exit process on a unit sortation order fulfillment system.
Tompkins Robotics, a business unit of Tompkins International, is a leading provider of autonomous mobile robot (AMR) solutions. The company has developed and deployed the world’s first, portable automated sortation system, t-Sort, a revolutionary unit and parcel sortation system that is patented for North America and Europe. This innovative robotic technology helps build world-class supply chains, while providing flexibility and throughput. Our systems accomplish volumes ranging from small operations in the backroom of a supercenter or mall anchor store to large fulfillment centers processing millions of units a day.
With two models, t-Sort and t-Sort Plus, and two sortation methods, tilt trays and cross belts, Tompkins Robotics systems can handle items as small as a penny to up to 40 inches long by 30 inches wide and weighing up to 120 pounds. The fast, efficient and modular unit and parcel sortation systems can handle a wide variety of product unmatched by traditional sortation solutions. Given the unique scalability of this application, t-Sort installations have proliferated since its first implementation in 2018 and continue to rapidly grow year over year.
