Exotec expands warehouse automation product range

Exotec, a warehouse robotics provider, has expanded its product portfolio with three solutions: a new conveyor system, an improved picking solution, and new proprietary warehouse software.

As inflation, economic headwinds, and labour shortages continue to place mounting pressure on supply chains, businesses around the world are looking for ways to address their immediate needs while also positioning themselves for an unpredictable future. Increasingly, this means doing more with less.

To help meet these needs, Exotec is releasing a new conveyor system, updated robotic picking solution, and proprietary warehouse software that all perfectly integrate with the Skypod system.

Each of these new solutions leverages Exotec’s signature modular design allowing customers to meet their dynamic business needs by easily adding new solutions to their existing systems. The new products bring Exotec closer to its vision of fully-automated warehouses that enable humans to work smarter not harder.

Exotec customers who use the Skypod system can also take advantage of the following:

The Skypath is a modular conveyor system that can reach a maximum throughput of 2,500 totes per hour. The modular design consists of straight, curved, and inclined building blocks that fit most logistic needs and layouts and can easily adapt to customer needs.

The Skypicker is an intelligent picking solution for modern warehouses. It features machine learning-based vision that automatically detects each item’s dimensions to intelligently place items in preparation containers in a way that optimizes for the available space and smooth package handling.

Improvements to the system allow the Skypicker to reliably reach outputs of up to 600 items per hour.

Deepsky is an end-to-end warehouse software that seamlessly integrates Exotec technology with most warehouse management and control systems as well as third-party automation equipment.

It automatically collects data and feeds it into pre-configured dashboards for immediate visibility and optimizes for consistent performance.

Romain Moulin, Exotec CEO and co-founder, says: “With these innovations, we are further enabling our customers to run efficient, scalable, and modular warehouses that flex to fit their unique needs.

“Our work with more than 30 industry-leading brands provides us with a unique perspective on the most pressing warehousing needs and allows us to continuously innovate to unlock even more value for our customers.”
