RightHand Robotics system surpasses 10 million picks with RightPick platform

RightHand Robotics, a provider of autonomous robotic piece-picking solutions, has released its RightPick2 solution, the company’s next-generation, integrated software and hardware product platform.

The launch was made at the ongoing ProMat Show in Chicago, a major showcase for material handling automation for supply chain, distribution and manufacturing.

RightPick2 is an autonomous piece-picking platform that handles the core task of picking and placing individual items as part of a wide range of warehouse workflows and processes. 

It works collaboratively with logistics facility employees and existing manual or automated systems, providing businesses with a vital productivity boost as part of a lean and highly efficient material handling process.

RightPick2, the latest generation of the proven RightPick platform, combines new skills based on RightPick.AI, the AI-enabled vision and motion control software with deep learning.

The platform comprises significant hardware upgrades, including:

  • RightHand’s GripperV5 5th-generation intelligent gripper with 2 kg payload;
  • the latest Universal Robots e-Series commercial-scale, collaborative robot arms; and
  • Intel RealSense Depth Camera D415 for precise measurements and low overall system cost.

Leif Jentoft, co-founder of RightHand Robotics, says: “The RightPick platform has successfully completed 10 million picks (MPicks) autonomously across many industries, including e-commerce, retail, pharmaceuticals, grocery, and more.

“Building on this experience, RightPick2 sets a new standard for speed and dependability. Being able to reliably pick a wide range of items at a high rate helps distribution and fulfillment centers improve overall customer experience, making them more competitive in the global marketplace.”

RightPick2 puts predictable capacity in the hands of warehouse operators by excelling at the 3Rs of robotic piece-picking: Range, Rate and Reliability.

The system is able to pick and place thousands of SKUs, fulfilling orders at high speeds while playing an integral role in consistently getting customers what they ordered. Leading customers including PalTac Corp and Capacity llc, have chosen to leverage these capabilities in their respective fulfillment operations.

RightHand Robotics has been chosen as a finalist for an MHI Innovation Award, and will be demonstrating RightPick2 at the company’s booth (#S2397) at ProMat in Chicago, April 8-11.

RightPick systems will also be running live in RightHand’s partner booths: Kuecker (#S3912A), EuroSort (#S3627), Tompkins Robotics (#S4250), and SDI (#S3953B).
